.txz is the new package format used in Slackware 13.0 and beyond. You wouldn't be able to use .tzx packages on 12.2 unless you installed the Slackware 13.0 version of pkgtools, which is probably not a good idea.

yeah i know that.. but what i'm asking is about the process of making the txz packages, if it's the same or is different.

You just give makepkg a filename that ends in .tzx, and it will use the appropriate compression algorithm. The package format itself is identical, it is just using a better compression method.
