|Target Version||Fixed in Version||3.6|
|Summary||0000017: FRED2 doesn't like TGA backgrounds|
|Description||The game will happily accept TGA backgrounds, but FRED2's background editor doesn't like them. It refuses to let me pull down the list of available backgrounds.|
|Additional Information||Obvioulsy the simple solution is to convert the backgrounds to PCX, but that defeats the point of the lovely TGA art :)|
|Tags||No tags attached.|
Currently fred cant display TGA's or JPG's so the best thing to do is to convert it to a PCX with the same name and select that with Fred.
Later when run with fs2_open if the tga of the same name is there then it will load that.
Perhaps someone could address this issue if current graphics work on Fred is fruitful
|So is this fixed now?|

Code wise this is fixed as long as Fred2 and FS2_Open are built with DevIL support. The recent CFILE fix should be the last thing that was keeping this from working as expected. It just needs a new build to be tested to know for sure. I'm building a DevIL version now and will resolve this if it works.
Update: This works but currently Cmdline_jpgtga is disabled if bpp is not 32bit. I did this because it needs that value to figure out what to send to opengl calls. Fred2_Open only asks for 16bit color so JPG and TGA textures are not enabled.
Fred2 could be changed to use 32bit all of the time or just when -jpgtga is used. Suggestions?

|Fixered. Fred will now init OpenGL with 32bpp when you use -jpgtga and use 16bpp otherwise. This gets jpg, tga working and dds now works in 16bpp and 32bpp.|
