I use ConvImX from Martin Wright. A very easy to use and intelligent program. Available here: http://www.mwgfx.co.uk/beta.htm

Reminder, make sure you have the most current version of Imagetool out, I had the wrong or older one without the "DXT5" menu option from my FSX-Accel(Gold) SDK.

Greg, I know it was probably a simple fix for you to make the batch file, as a non-programmer type, I can only THANKS for saving me so much time. Finally realized on the AIG forums I was not using all the FSX/P3D converted models released which meant I was in need of many bmp to dds conversions. Saved some much needed HD space, hope to see a small improvement on frames in my high AI traffic areas.

Finally remembered where I saw this thread. Thanks Greg I have just converted 220 JBAI LJ45 textures. Far easier than doing each one individually with DXTBMP. Now does anyone have a script to copy a file into each texture folder ?

File would be: Texture.cfg

If not will do it the old fasioned way
