    DSS Plugin

    Turel
      Hi, just wondering if anyone knew if there was a DSS Plugin for fireworks. I wanted one so I could edit the texture files (dss files) of a couple of games I play and so far I've only been able to find a DSS plugin for photoshop, but I much prefer fireworks.

          Could you contact the developers of the DSS Plugin and ask them if it
          compatible with FW? A lot of PS plugins are ...

            I just submitted a question on their site but their tech support seems more hardware related (its on the nVidia site). I know the plugin is compatable with Paintshop Pro because it has instructions on the page for installign the plugin for that, but there arent any instructions for Fireworks.

            I've never installed a Plugin for Fireworks before (I'm kinda a noob....) so if anyone could point me in the right direction that'd be great. Also here's the link to the Plugin: http://developer.nvidia.com/object/photoshop_dds_plugins.html

              I would just folow the instructions on how to install it for Paint Shop
              Pro and see if it works. FW already has a plugins directory so you don't
              have to create it.

                Didn't that go away in recent versions?

                  All my plugins are in a separate folder outside FWs altogether.

                    My install in WInXP has the following directory:

                    C:\Program Files\Macromedia\Fireworks 8\Plug-Ins
                    Its possible that some plugin I installed created it. I just assumed it
                    was there from the FW install.

                      Tried installing it the Paintshop Pro way (I checked and my version did already have a plugins folder) but it didnt work. I think it may be bacause the "Required DLLs" that the guide refered too is no longer on the download list.

                        Please check out the extension of the plugin file. If it's anything but
                        .8bf, I'm afraid you're out of luck.
