Thread: why does it say 'drawing failed' when i try to load a bmp file?

    I'm guessing it's because they're compressed in DX3?

    You will notice that some of them will work and some not.

    There's also something called super bitmap. You need a special program to view them.

    Try this site: http://fly.to/mwgfx/ , look for DXTbmp at the bottom, and when you've read it all,dl the program and the dll that you need. Hope this helps
