Hi Kilstorm,I think the choice of paint programs is what's hosing you. The problem comes in when you save the texture out in imageTool... you've got to convert it from DXT3 to a 32-bit format (I usually choose Targa) for repainting. I don't think Paint will open targa files, however. Most of us painters use either Adobe Photoshop or Jasc PaintShop Pro. If you need a freeware option, the GIMP might be a good choice. It's available from http://www.gimp.org/win32/ and is a passably good editor I hear.Just be sure when you're done editing that you save in a 32-bit format and then reformat to a DXT3 in ImageTool.Hope that helps!
