Strange .STX graphics format.

Post by deant » Sun Aug 25, 2013 4:54 pm

Hello guys,
this is my first post here. I usualy ask for help as a last resort, and i seem to hited a rock with this one. The format is used in the PS/XBoX versions of the game Beatdown: Fists of fury. Here is a link of some sample files (around 1 mb) ->http://www.mediafire.com/download/82gnr ... agq/TEX.7z
When i open it in hex and compared it with BMP and JPG, there seem to be some similarities, but the files have absolutely no header. I`m not a programmer and i cannot go much further. I also tryed a nice little software -> Texture finder, both the new and old version(with the templates). I can find the textures in it, but cannot get the colorspace. I think they are not compressed.
Thanks in advance to whoever respond to this request.
I hope u all had a nice weekend.

Hi!
Use TextureFinder v1.3.2 with these settings:

This is the STX file format:

Code: Select all

{
0x00: chunk identifier (0x18)
0x04: chunk size
0x08: chunk version?
  {
  0x0C: chunk identifier (0x01)
  0x10: chunk size (0x10)
  0x14: chunk version?
    0x18: width
    0x1C: height
    0x20: bpp
    0x24: ?
  }
  0x28: bitmap (width*height bytes)
  0x28+width*height: color palette (RGBA, 0x400 bytes)
}
For example BILL_02.STX:

Code: Select all

{
18 00 00 00
1C 04 01 00
FF FF 03 18
  {
  01 00 00 00
  10 00 00 00
  FF FF 03 18
    00 02 00 00
    80 00 00 00
    08 00 00 00
    00 02 00 00
  }
  ... bitmap
  ... palette
}
Hope this helps :)
Cheers!
