The Famous Five - BRG files
I have good news and bad news.
Good news is, it works now.
Bad news is, some files work, some don't.
I have to test this some more but so far only the main characters are affected.

Edit: It's not just main characters.

I also found a minor bug using command-line:
The tool looks for ".brg" but ignores ".BRG" (The game has both for some reason)
It's so minor that I don't care if you fix it or not!

And it would be nice if the tool detects files in subfolders (There are a lot)

Yeah sorry, not all files will work. Those that don't are the ones that don't seem to have graphic data, at least not in a format I can figure out, like the locXXmsk.brg files. Unfortunately there's nothing I can do about this.

In any case I've updated it, it now includes all BRG files no matter the case of the extension, and it will look in all subdirectories as well. It's the same link but here it is anyway so you don't have to go back a page Wink

I finished ripping the backgrounds and credits! This includes some unused/testing images and even unused credits, which don't represent the final game at all.

I'll move on to characters and menus now.

I'm currently also working on extracting some ressource of an old westka pc game "arcatera". I was able to extract images from unpacked brg as well, but struggle on packed ones. From the game context, it seems, that byte 25 indictes if an brg is raw or not.

Based on some resource files, files with byte 25 == 0x02 are annotated with the keyword "PACKED". These files seems to have the same pack header from byte 26 to byte 45...

@puggsoy do you have an idea what format this could be?
Thanked by:
So the packed format seems to be a LTE compressed rgb565 Image with a 265 color palettte. Additionally, the packed format can contain multiple images, so i still struggle with the sizing of the images...
