Some graphics cards don't like images that aren't a power of two in size (64x64, 128x128, 256x256, 512x512, etc.).

I haven't looked through all of Reimer's tutorials but you can probably just take the image files and scale them up to a resolution such as 512x512 using a paint program that supports the resizing of images. Texture coordinates work on a scale of 0.0 to 1.0 regardless of the texture size, so unless he's doing something else with the texture in that tutorial, then that should work.

That's right, I still need to replace the images by the resized versions.

MDX allowed you to use textures of any size, XNA indeed requires you to use textures with sizes that are powers of 2. XBox360 compatibility requires this, I guess.

I'll upload the correct images tomorrow, I have them on my pc at work ;)

Just multiply the worldMatrix in the DrawSkyBox() method with the scale matrix.
