File Notes

This is the first full release of this program and hopefully I have all the previous problems sorted.

1. It currently does not extract a8, y8, ay8, a8y8 or p8-bump .bitmap formats because I couldn't find any examples of these formats to test with. I'm assuming these were XBOX only formats.
2. Cube-maps and volume-maps are now supported but extraction to anything other than a DDS file will only give you one frame. I may in future add the option of per frame extraction.
3. This is a biggy, extracting to either TIFF or PNG will destroy images with alpha channels. It will use the alpha channel as a transparency deleting parts of the colour channels and it will remove the alpha channel. JPG doesnt support alpha channel but the colour channels will be extracted. Where possible extract to DDS, TGA or BMP.
4. Custom Bitmaps (not extracted) that are compressed using a DXT format might not extract properly if there is more than one bitmap in the file. This is because I was unable to find a reliable bitmap size value in the bitmap tag for this type, all other bitmap formats should extract fine though.
5. If it looks like to program has frozen, the progress bar stops for example, give it some time, its probably still going.

Thanks to the people who made the DevIL Image Library and Marco Mastropaolo for making the .NET wrapper for it.
