Is there any freeware program which I can use to tile textures so I can use them in A1? I dont really want to pay $30-40 for some program that I'll use once or twice.

No application automatically texturizes things and produces high quality results, but you can do it manually in photoshop and get them.

You'll probably get much better results using a program like Photoshop and Gimp, and tiling it yourself. It takes longer to do, but often looks better.

Here's a link to some free texture software: free software

This site includes a free texture viewer and a free program called Bricks'n'Tiles. I haven't really looked at these though, but I though they might be useful.

GCC is a compiler that should come standard with OS X or any other unix based system
Its just like the story of the grasshopper and the octopus. All year long the grasshopper kept burying acorns for winter while the octopus mooched off his girlfriend and watched TV. Then the winter came, and the grasshopper died, and the octopus ate all his acorns and also he got a racecar. Is any of this getting through to you?

I got gimp working on my mac G5 with OS 10 tiger real easily. You need to make sure you have X-11 installed first. That is included somewhere in your original operating software CD's then use the OSX installer
