Not to burst your bubble, but you chose the wrong program to start. It's like trying to learn how to ride a bike in the Tour de France. Anyway, here it goes: You need a graphics editor capable of working with dds and tga files. Photoshop recommended. You need to have experience working with Photoshop, have a clear understanding of layers, alpha channels, layer blending modes, filters, displacement maps, light etc. Need to know how to manage files and folders in windows: Create new folders, keep folder structures, opening and creating compressed folders, changhing file extensions, etc. You also need to know how textures work, how to figure out what parts of a flat texture go on what part of a 3d model and what each of the textures does (each skin has 2 or more textures that you need to edit/create). Are you up to the task? I can help you if you want, but I can't teach you how to use the tools. You need to learn that on your own. ;)

Hey, Screwb! I don't get that either. Maybe the tga files were left behind, since only a few tgas are ever used.
