Upon trying to load any of the TGA images generated from the game Team Fortress 2 in nomacs, I'm greeted with the message "Sorry, I could not load a1_0000.tga." These images appear to be valid however, as they can be opened in both Gimp and Paint.NET.

I've attached a specific image for testing, but all of the images cause the same behavior in nomacs.

this is what I get from debugging your image

Image type (non-TrueVision 2.0) not supported

seems like Qt does not support your image type - how did you create it?

a note fore me (Qt code):

    if (mHeader[ImageType] != 2)
        // TODO: should support other image types
        mErrorMessage = QObject::tr("Image type not supported");
