help with a freebie

I downloaded the free linked ruined abbey from sharecg http://www.sharecg.com/v/84475/browse/5/3D-Model/Abbaye.
I can open the obj file in DAZ Studion version 4.7, but the textures don't work properly.

At another forum I was told "The Materials folder had 4 material files in but the model has only one material zone, plus the .mtl file has no material file references." I was also told "you'd need to UV map it, to get individual texture/material zones."

I haven't got the foggiest idea how to UV map. Can one of the smart people here make this so I can use it in DAZ Studio?

If you want to send me the file I can take a look at it in Blender for you Fleet.
I do no have an account at the site linked, and do not feel much like creating one just to DL the file.
Also what file formats can DAZ import just so I know what I can export the file as?

Drak,
I appreciate your offer to help, but I no longer need it. Somebody at another forum UV mapped the model for me and applied the textures.
Very respectfully,
fleet

's no problem, Fleet. As long as you've got it working.
