Hi,

https://www.dropbox.com/s/aej5n0oowi80t ... lemenu.pix

The above link is for a .pix image file

It comes from the game Earth Seeker, that I'm currently translating. A Wii title.

I have NO idea how to read it, no program I found will identify it.

IT should look like this.

Please help, if you can or have free time.

Thank you,

It is a RIFF-based format. The file is probably a custom format, so there won't be any programs designed specifically for it, but you can use a "raw" image editor. The pixel data is most likely something like RGBA 4444.

It's uncompressed, although the bits are kinda funny. Weirdly shuffled. Take a look at the final 2^(19) bytes as a 4096x128 greymap.

Alternatively, if you'd looked inside you'd have found the strings FPIX DPIX and XPIX. Try googling that. Make sure google doesn't assume you typoed.

Actually I did open the file up in a hex editor and it shows those three formats you mentioned, but nothing really seems to open it. So with your RIFF idea, I'm assuming it's encapsuled. So, I'll continue looking into it. Post if you have any more ideas.

Thanks
