Well I've seen nice retextures here, but I'd like to some of my own. How is what i ask.

a) First off, what do I need?

b) Is it hard?

c) Should I succeed, how do I post it here?

I'd really appreciate help.

a) You need kotor-tool, the tpc2tga converter all that can be found here (http://www.lucasforums.com/showthread.php?s=&threadid=122049). Now you need a graphics editor. PaintShopPro is free for evaluation and suited for beginners (imho) since photoshop is kinda well...
full packed with stuff you wonŽt even begin to understand <--- that about sums it up :D
YouŽll then need to read some into the way the game stores information. This (http://www.lucasforums.com/showthread.php?s=&threadid=122562) could be a good place to start for texturing need.

b) Depends on the stuff you edit (machines = easier, alive stuff (esp. humans) = harder, imho) and level of quality you want to achive.

c) YouŽll need some webspace that allows you to post images and files. www.20megsfree.com could be a good place to start.
