maybe not THAT fast since even if I figure everything out work and such usally gets in the way, anyhow im not sure how the .cam files work im guessing the actuall map data is some where else a .cam files are ONLY graphics data.
The first cam file seesm to contain the background image AND a font :s which is the font the main menu, pause menu and when you goto load etc.
However the bitmaps are not in the format I expected them to be in, im currently clueless as to how they work at the moment, since the header is tagged "Bits" maybe they're bitplanes or some such.. but anyway after screwing with the cam file I managed to edit up the first screen to an ugly mess, basicly keept editing bytes from 0x00 to 0xFF to try to find the start and end of the image data in the file which worked.
