the nvidia dds texture is definately what is used for the ingame textures, so i would say this is a definate must.

Personally ive only used photoshop and the nividia tools for it, but i think paint.net works with photoshop plugins natively anyway.

Wish you luck, and hope this helps,

i think the 2d skin stuff is dxt3 no alpha, but am not 100% certain, i have a screenshot with the save settings on the photoshop version at least, but i am at work for the moment.

There may be a fair bit of info on here:

Also the forums on TMX (TM EXchange) are awesome for such things, aswell as TM-Mods site.

I will check back later, and if no success i'll try and find that screenie for ya! :thumbsup:
