"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

What exactly do you want to achieve?

If you can give us some more detailed explanation of what
you are trying to do, i'm sure we'll be able to sort this
one out.

 It's a graphics format that contains several images in each file if the file is 'Sprites' type
and one image if the file is 'Picture'. I've already extracted picture file but sprites didn't
go out. I want to convert these images to more common format that can be loaded by
any graphics editor.

  I need it very much. Please help!
As promised here is my answer too.

Some hints on the file format can be found in the Graphics General section. The program I designed is underway. If anyone needs the program too, send an E-mail to:
