A lot of years ago I bought Tetris Zone for Mac and would like to extract the graphics files so I can use them with another Tetris client (Nullpomino).

I was looking around in the package contents but I don't see any obvious graphics files, just .bpr and .tpr files. I'm guessing the graphics are included in these files? Is there a simple app that I could use to open them with and maybe convert to a standard image file?

2008 would be OS X 10.5 Leopard, which puts it past the resource fork stuff of the original Mac OS. OS X still uses a file's extended attributes for resources, so you might take a look at those. If the file sizes look like they may be graphics, you can see if something like GraphicConverter or Gimp recognizes them.

I'll take a look with GIMP. Many thanks!

You could post some of the files and have people here take a look
Robvas, I didn't want to post in public as I purchased this software some years back and I'm not sure about copyright. As I said, it's not longer made, so, if a mod can chime in and say it's OK, I will post the files here.
