It's kind of an open ended question. Some files are full screen images that are saved in several parts. There are also files that are special things like clips (64x64), sprites (collection of 16x16 "stamps") or fonts (I think there are 4 or 5 sizes of these). Do you have some sample file names for us to analyse?
