Add custom file format IO to open source application

Review the following open source application: [login to view URL]

This program loads a binary file format called OTBM and renders the data as tiles, items, item attributes, etc.

I would like a fork of this application to be able to parse and output/save both OTBM and a different file format with the .SEC extension short for SECtor map file.

OTBM parsing happens here: [login to view URL]

SEC parsing should happen in [login to view URL]

Attached is a comprehensive list of 8000 SECtor map files and a single map file which has most keywords and SEC fileformat syntax for your analysis, otherwise I can do the analysis and make a list of attribute keywords such as String and Amount.

The basics of the SECtor fileformat/syntax is:

Offset_X-Offset_Y: Flags, Content={map_data...}

X, Y, Z are coordinates equal to filename-part*32 + Offset_X and Offset_Y.


Filename: [login to view URL]

Offset_x = 12, Offset_y = 3

X = 1038*32 + 12 = 33228

Y = 995*32 + 3 = 31843

Z = 7

Flags options are: Refresh, ProtectionZone, NoLogout and Content.

' ' = New Attribute

',' = Next item

'{' = Inside New Container

'}' = Outside Container

'=' = Value
