Hmm, I haven't noticed anything like that (but then I haven't tested it very much either ). Which image in particular would this be noticeable for?

The TXB files contain compressed bitmaps which come in one resolution. The converter does not do any scaling, it just grabs the bitmap, decompresses it and saves it in TGA format instead. The resolution you get in the TGA is the one the TXB was saved in. Only vector graphics can be rescaled freely without image quality loss, bitmaps are fixed in size. You'd probably get better image quality if you use an image manipulation application like Photoshop, Paintshop Pro or GIMP than if I'd try to make the converter scale them up.

You can find them inside players.mod (in the data folder) if I remember correctly. You should be able to use the ERF/RIM Editor linked to in the first post in this thread to extract them from the MOD file.
