OK, I have started a quick manual that gives you a list of programs you need and what they do. Look here

I have also gone through a brief description of the PFF editor.

By the way, this process is the same for JO & BHD.

You will need the PFF Editor for putting the .dds file back into the game file. Also, make sure the name of the .dds file is the same as the original file - (you can change the name of image files but that requires using a Hex editor to change the .3di file - I'm not going into how you do that here.) Make sure you put the file into the correct PFF file.

(Note: You can also compress the file before putting into the correct PFF file but that is not required. This simply reduces the size and load on the GFX card.)

OK, to view .dds files, use PFF extractor, open PFF file that has .dds files, select file you want, then goto Action in the menu bar and click on Extract. (Note: the PFF file must be highlighted to do this)

CHoose folder to extract the files to. You will now need to decompress these files using the BHDextractor. Once this is done, you should be able to open and manipulate them in Photoshop.
You should also be able to view them as thumbnails if you have downloaded the NVIDIA .dds viewer or similar viewer.

Hope this helps
