Well, the WOTSIT file's description leaves a lot to be desired.

by Clippy (Login burger2227)


Icons are included in the bitmap file called "BMP.TXT". There is hardly much of anything I could figure as to the structure. So I had to search for other documentation. The best so far was a VB.NET example I found. But there is no real documentation of the byte values returned.

Also I guess you have to find the end of the bytes if there are more than one image listed. The example program just sets the data into a new icon  file. Then he uses the NET program to actually view it in a picture box.
