thats exactly what i was having problems with, i finally figured out the layer thing, so now its no prob adding camo, my clan symbol, ect to the dds files, unless they dont have transparency already in them, on that issue im still having trouble converting picture formats into ones that will work with transparency, pickin the transparency color, and getting it to actually be transparent after i save, but, other then that all other issues have been solved, thnx for your help :)

Download gimp and get the nvidea .dds plugin for gimp if you dont have photoshop. Theres a an nvidea .dds plugin for photoshop as well that will load and save to .dds.
It'll be much easier than using paint.
I would also google some tutoriuals in reguard to making transparencies and basic game textures. I still model with 3ds max but I havent created textures in a while but anything you want to know is out there, just google it.
First model and texture I ever did, way back when. With specular (Shine) and a bump map. Not bragging just showing what you can learn from tutorials.
This will show you how to create an alpha map: http://www.axialis.c...al-misc001.html
