The Major Stryker tileset format is almost identical to the Cosmo Tileset Format except the tiles are mostly 16×16 instead of Cosmo's 8×8.

The tileset graphics are stored in the following files.

Other tiles

Filename Type Planes Tile count Tile size Image size
FONTBACK.DR1 ? MBGRI 120 8×8 320×24
FONTDR.DR1 ? M 89 8×8
89 16×16
KISS.DR3 ? M 280 16×16 320×224

Note that in FONTDR.DR1 the 8×8 tiles come first, and are then immediately followed by the 16×16 tiles.

All tile graphics are stored as Byte-planar EGA data. The files have no header.

The EGA planes are always in the order Blue, Green, Red and Intensity (BGRI). Some tilesets may use an additional Mask plane (M), which is always stored first in the file, and some tilesets contain only this mask plane.
