You will need to re-link the textures for the rigs. If you want my rigs to just work, place the textures inside your project in the following directory structure: sourceimages/images for textures/minecraft textures/textures-new/
Or you can manually link them. Check out this page for information about how to extract the textures from Minecraft.
