Hi all,
I've just had some Amstrad CPC image files transferred to PC zip file from a 3" disc that I created 23+ years ago when I was 13!
The majority of the files are in OCP Art Studio format (16k .SCR with accompaning .PAL file) which I can read no problem with ConvImgCPC.
However, there are also some files that have no extension - but are all 12,160 bytes in size - which I cannot open. I've also tried changing their extension to .SCR and loading them in Advanced OCP Art Studio in WinApe emulator but I get "file type error"
I'm not sure if they've been compressed and had the extension removed so would be grateful for any advice on how to unlock this secret!
Giles

Maybe someone can help you to figure out what format it is, if you attach one of these files here.

CU,

Hi,
I'm sure they are image files as I found an OPC Art Studio image on another disk which had the same name as one of the files "MJ-BAD" (it's my own computer version of Michael Jackson's BAD album cover!)
I've zipped up the unknown format image file and the .SCR and .PAL Art Studio files and attached to this post.

FYI - here's a GIF version of my amazing artwork!

Thanks in advance for anyone who can help solve this puzzle!
