Saving Uncompressed DDS Files?

    If I save to DDS, by default I get a DXT1 image.

    I can set IL_DXT_FORMAT to IL_DXT3 or IL_DXT5 , no problem

    but if I set it to IL_DXT_NO_COMP I get an "internal error" when saving (err, attempting to save)

    I'm using 1.77 and IL_SQUISH_COMPRESS

    Is there some special flag I should set? Should I disable all compressors?

      DevIL cannot save to uncompressed DDS files right now.  It was just something that was never requested.  I will take a look to see how hard it will be to implement.

      Okay, I have support for saving uncompressed DDS files in DevIL now.  The only problem is that I am only working on the DevIL2 branch now.  The updated file is here:

      It will probably be awhile before the next DevIL release, so if you need this soon, I will update the main DevIL branch when I get a chance.

    Sorry to wake up a very old thread, but was this ever implemented?
