Rez Merger
Combine multiple Rez files into one

A lot of modders end up with multiple Rez files for their mods. Sometimes you just want to combine the two into one large one. While technically you could un-rez both of them, and re-rez the result, this tool makes it much easier to combine multiple Rez Files.

Rez Inject
Insert a file into an existing Rez File

Combat Arms used a slightly different Rez File Format that Winrez could not write. This tools lets you insert your custom modifications into the existing Rez files. Obviously make a backup first!
There's plenty of tutorials out there on youtube etc on how to use this tool

DTX Convert & DTX Photoshop Plugin
Combat Arms Texture Processor & Photoshop Plugin

Combat Arms also used a slightly different Texture format (DTX). This tools converts it to the standard LithTech DTX so that the Photoshop plugin works with the textures.
The process to change a texture would be; Extract & Convert to Normal DTX, Edit in Photoshop & Save, Convert Back to Combat Arms & Inject. Again there are several videos on youtube showing how to do this.
