Where is it then?
- Dale, get out of the hot tub. We're stealing a news van.
- It's the perfect crime. How will they ever report it?

The program you use for opening and saving dds textures. Paint.net alone won't show you the alpha channel. You can still tell dxtbmp to edit the textures themselves with paint.net.

Edit: You can take a look here how it is used. The video is in german, but a video says more than 10,000 german words. You can look at 25:15 and 28:40.

Many thanks for this! A little poking and prodding and my newest profile now has a custom paint job (albeit one adapted from one that came with Ohaha's FH 2013 mod). Anyone know how to edit lightbox/decals .dds files so that the design shows up properly from all angles?

Hey guys,
I hope somebody can help me.

I have created a truck skin with a transparent background so that I can change it afterwards in game. The issue is, that, whenever I select a color other than the background color set in the sii-file in the def folder at the workshop or truck dealer, the chosen color is shown correctly in the menu, but whenever I click on "buy", the color switches back to the background color.

It has already perfectly worked for me before with another skin, but this time, I can't get it to work no matter what values i change.
So maybe, somebody can help me here. Thanks in advance!

I got the issue fixed on my own. I just forgot to set Stock as false. Now, it's working just the way it should. Thanks for your help anyway.
