I see in the FAQ where Mesh Wizard is supposed to use BMPs. But I can't get it to recognize one. It only appears to see DDS files -- but when you select one, it does an immediate CTD. I KNOW people use this thing. How do you get around this so you can texture? Is there a specific DDS to BMP conversion tool that does the job correctly? I'm using GIMP -- but like I said, I can't get Mesh Wizard to see the results.

Houlala... yes, it's possible with MeshWizard...
But you must make a bmp copy of your dds, else you can't see anything...
And you have to set in meshwizard were is the folder with your bmp :
option - setting then in the windows "BMP texture file path"

It is not very easy to add a texture to a model with meshwizard, but it is possible... but limited....

if you do not succeed, I can help you (if you are patient ...) 🐌🐌

Eh, it appears that maybe I have stumbled onto the proper settings on my own. Do the dds and the converted bmp have to be in the same folder? That appears to be what made things work for me.
