The one I was working on was Scholar Ling's body texture (her outfit).

I think it may just be because the game is using graphic files that were used on the XBox first. *shrug*

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.
Yes, I am using Paint Shop Pro for these (plus everything else I do )

I tried scaling them up from 256x256 to 512x512, but because of the dithering it looked worse. I think I can fix it though, using my retouch tool.

Anyway, thanks for the converter!
