Seems I spoke too soon -

The base isn't drawing where the details aren't.

Meaning the base is also using the details alpha.

If you need a screen of this i can p rovide one

Err wait - I'm going to try a forth pass, interpolate of colormap and colormap in respect to alpha

                    glActiveTextureARB( GL_TEXTURE2_ARB );//detail - instead of pass through, interpol with tex0 in respect to 1-alpha
                     /*glTexEnvi (GL_TEXTURE_ENV, GL_TEXTURE_ENV_MODE, GL_COMBINE);
                      glTexEnvi (GL_TEXTURE_ENV, GL_COMBINE_RGB_EXT, GL_REPLACE);
                      glTexEnvi (GL_TEXTURE_ENV, GL_SOURCE0_RGB_ARB, GL_PREVIOUS);*/
                     glTexEnvi(GL_TEXTURE_ENV,GL_SOURCE0_RGB_ARB, GL_PREVIOUS );
                     glTexEnvi(GL_TEXTURE_ENV,GL_SOURCE1_RGB_ARB, GL_TEXTURE0  );
                     glTexEnvi(GL_TEXTURE_ENV,GL_SOURCE2_RGB_ARB, GL_TEXTURE1);
That should work right? (replacing the old tu2)

makes it visible now, but the details are MUCH too light ( I switched to a GL_MODULATE for the details since its the actualy effect I want, not GL_ADD_SIGNED)

You don't need to enable blending for multitexturing, unless you intend for the final combined texture to be translucent (usually not, for terrain.)

Hmm, well see, since I'm using multiple textures, and the DOT3 hack wont work for me, I have to make like 3-4 passes. I can't figure out how to do this otherwise since in my TU1 I need to references the previous and previous only grabs the previous tu

I ended going up with this as it was "close enough". The tool is for Myth III: The Wolf Age. Here are the results of the multitexturing on one of the standard maps:

Before: Pepper Heights
After: Pepper Heights
After: Pepper Heights Close up
After: Llanc Close Up Road

Its still not quite right (It actually brightens when there is white instead of darkens... hmm...) but I think it will work for its purpose (which is seeing how things look in a rough fashion without switching to the engine every 5 minutes).
