but the image gets all out of whack when I save it in dxtbmp
I've used dxtbmp before and had the same problem. I stopped using it and don't have that problem any more. Why are you using dxtbmp? Is it to read the .dds file? If so, try IrfanView instead. It works better.
The classic works like a charm . I just tried version 2 classic and some of the needles dont show up . I was using the Kraz255 .
Dont worry its just mudrunner being spintires . Everytime i load the game sometimes all the gauge needles are there . Other times some are missing .
