^ That's not a real editor, it can only rip textures. Unfortunately it does not preserve alpha channels. To rip textures with alpha channels better use tools like 3dRipperDx.

This says it's able to do more than fiddling with textures, so I take it it is a level editor to some extent:

As for alpha channels, what does it mean in practice? Are there problems with colours?

Alpha channel is used for neat transparency effect in games. Since TRLE doesn't support it it doesn't matter to you anyway.

^ Still matters if you know how to transform alpha to TRLE magenta

@Dustie: thanks for link, I didn't know that the program is updated.

^ I was surprised too, I will have to take a closer look at it sometime.


As for the alpha issue, as long as the colours are ripped properly, it's OK.

A_De - alpha channel in TRAOD textures is made so poorly it really doesn't matter since you have to fix it anyway unless you want to have awful jagged edges.

Just take your time with texturing. It's not hard at all. Just time consuming. Just breathe and texture.
