Wad files are files that contain textures for maps so if a map has a wad called survivor.wad that wad contains custom wads that are not from valve and if you dont have that wad you cant play the map.

No, this is a General Game Modding Conversation, or a general Graphics Conversation.

Half-Life is only one of a Dozen games that uses Wad files. Sometimes they are just renamed TGA files anyway.

He wants Textures, presumably to make his own mods, for various games.

The best source of Textures I know of, is a Digital Camera, and Photoshop, or the Gimp.

Take a closeup shot of most anything, and you've got a neat texure. Just be sure it is either in focus (new games), or only slightly out of focus (older games).
