Well I have bought both the texture packer and illuiminator. Definitely a learning curve but the packer has increased my games performance and that is what it's all about. I think it can and will do even more once I understand it more. I did get a response and you can't manually place the textures unfortunately but hopefully The designer might add as an update. You can use naming to help place them but it is not a perfect solution. I am now just trying to test if you can use the textures on particle effects. Thanks for you help I will search for his forums because I am sure there will be some good help there too.
