Summary0005544: DDS normalmap textures seem to be ignored
DescriptionWhile compressing normals to dds is not recommended, it was and should be still possible, as with all other texture types.
It looks like dds normalmaps are simply ignored now, regardless of the compression type, and user gets no message on why would that happen.
Steps To Reproduce1. Take any existing tiling or model normalmap and open it in Gimp.
2. Save as DDS using DXT1-5 compression (remember to use Generate Mipmaps option).
3. Place texture in the dds texture path.
4. Check in-game.
TagsNo tags attached.

In 2.09 the default Normal Map texture format is RGTC ( D3D10 "BC5" ).
Please verify whether this issue can be reproduced with the correct format.

Thank you.
