The generic DirectDraw surface compression algorithms still have the DDS file extension, but there is often some byte offset in the pixel mapping and exception messages to Jabo's plugin. If that had been the case I'd have released a fixed version of this (at least until Glide64 would support generic DDS).
The DDS format uses S3TC texture compression. There is ways to load DDS files in OpenGL, because of this.

So I've read.

It's no deal to me really; chess is like the opposite of video games. Video games are psychology; chess only reflects what is on the mind. I highly doubt a PNG version I'd reupload by any chance would get a single download; I just don't like the idea of being subject to people like this mirroring it--with or without my permission hah. (It's Virtual Chess not Virtua Wrestling...meatheaded really.)

Even if Glide64 supported it it's no deal--they supported something Jabo's plugin didn't (probably Glide64's new personal retexturing convention). I disregard whether Jabo implements DDS support outside DXT; I'd release a format no plugin supports. Any pirate who is obsessed with lame Photoshop would never figure it out how to easily convert it to PNG. And even if they did I congratulate respectfully; it's my fault and I'm happy my work means something to others enough to be pirated. I'll just remove the source download and watch the requests (not).
