How to get image HEX data extracted from .dc6 file?

Post by rafineria888 » Fri Jan 24, 2020 12:12 pm

I need to get image hex code from .dc6 file to decode it into image with no matter what format.
I have a problem getting image hex data from .dc6 files. I cannot find any valid image header inside hex code of .dc6 files.

For example here is hex of invaxe.dc6: link

I found that if there are 2 or more images every image has probably ending: AF 80 EE EE EE
Anyway I'm looking for invfile images.
If you know how to get that data let me know, thanks.

DC6 Files are RLE encoded 8bit palette files, there is no standard image header to find.
I suggest you read up on the DC6 file format: viewtopic.php?t=724#p148076
