it was hard to find anything on .roo, however after a few pages of searching i found on google .roo as a GPS waypoint format.

bgf on the otherhand brought up about 9 billion hits. do your own searching, should be easy to find out exactly what it is.

For the BGF Files! :

Explaining the BGF files in the M59 resource directory:

Psychochild: Actually, the BGF files are compressed bitmaps with a bit of extra information thrown in there.

The extra information basically organizes the bitmaps into different "frames". Each frame has a number of individual bitmaps for viewing the item in each direction.

So, when the monster attacks for example, we specify "play frames X through Y" on the server side. The client takes the direction the monster is facing compared to you, and cycles through the appropraite bitmaps.

I'm not sure about the exact format of the file. Just sharing what little I know about it. I think some other info is stored in there, too, but my memory fails me right now.

Anyway, that's about as much as I understand about it all. :) Thought some of you might be interested.
