I was bashing my head for the last week trying to figure out why some of the file in texture mods had
display issues on my system. It was mostly Specular and Normal maps, which would appear to be
heavily corrupted. It turned out that they were created with the IntelTextureWorks DDS plugin, which
anyone using CC probably takes for granted. So even though I had the CC 2018 demo loaded, when
I tried to grab the Nvidia plugin, I finally realized there was no page for it. It was unthinkable until I
reached that point. So after a little digging I realized Intel had taken over, so I simply dropped their
IntelTextureWorks 8bi file into the CS5.1 plugin folder, and it works like a charm.
Hopefully this will help others. I am just glad I went with the dual install instead of removing CS5,
as per usual procedure.
Thanks to BiRaitBec and FlaconOil for their assistance, and patience!
