I get an error when opening each of these in PS7. "Unknown data has been encountered reading "Weathering" and will be discarded. Continue?"
When I do continue the template opens and the weathering layer is blank. A bugger, as it's one of the most important layers. Does anyone know of a cure for this?
I'd like to be able to get this one just right...

Probably because that layer was creatd with a much newer version of Photoshop. PS7 goes back a few years.

Yeah, it states in the manual that the templates were created using CS3, so opening them in earlier versions of Photoshop isn't guaranteed. I am using CS2 and thankfully everything opened without a hitch.

I started work on a ROF template that Jason had posted using Photoshop 6.01. Before saving it as DDS, do I have to merge the layers? Whenever I try to save the psd file as dds, i get an error message "too many layers to export". I have done skins for IL2 where one has to merge the layers, but never used the DDS format.

I have the DDS plugin for Photoshop installed.
