Unlikely. It did help that mdl files were at least in the same format, tpc and tga are considerably different (from what I understand anyways)

Once upon a time, I talked with stoffe about such things, and she said that tpc files are basically direct draw (dds I think) with a custom header. The reason a tpc2tga converter exists is because not all the information in tpc is required to generate a tga file. That's what I understand anyways.
