The Alpha channel is there on the PSD, but it's pure white on the TGA. Check to make sure you're saving with an alpha channel? Also, I'm just drawing at straws here, but make sure when you save your TGA that you only use the first alpha layer. Hope this helps, even remotely.

If not, hopefully I or someone else will be able to work it out for you.
