I just want to resharpen or want to make better textures for Mechwarrior 4... maybe later im adding some new textures or do a little bit artwork through color modification or anything like that....

adobe CS is optional, but it really helps workflow wise.. However you can easily get away with using GIMP, its just the workflow will be slower.
the way you start the process:
take the original texture.
Best of luck.

thank for your advise...does adobe cs certain files with textures in it, also convert into a graphic format - or is a therefore another program necessary ?

Hi machineoverkill. As with most games, there may be official modding tools that allow you to extract\replace content from the game's files.
In case of MechWarrior 4 there's the MW4Extractor tool that works like a "winzip", where you can open the .mw4 files and replace content. You can find it for download at "mechreg [dot] org [slash] missions [slash] Lost"
So in your case, you'd use the tool, extract the textures, work on restoring\improving them like he suggested and then replace them back.
