Yes - Also one of the things I find most difficult is working out the size, bitplanes etc
If the graphics have already been ripped - Could these details be logged
This info can be useful

how could this problem be solved ???

adding a txt file to each bmp file ??

and each sprite a bmp file ??

what could be the best solution...what do you like ???

HMMM:

structure could be:

2bytes = HOL ID
2bytes = width in pixel
2bytes = height in pixel
2bytes = num of used bitplanes (depth)

name of datfile would be the same as bmp file...

Can you only add (hide?) extra data in bmp files? Why not PNG? (NB: I did look at the .bmp format in depth a few years back, but know pretty much nothing about other image formats).

Surely the number of bitplanes (depth) can be done with 1 byte, and have a spare (alignment) byte afterwards which could be used for something else later on?
