EMI Tile (background) Viewer

Here is my new EMI tile viewer.

For those that dont know .til's contain the backgrounds in EMI. So its a background viewer/saver.

It supports both the pc and ps2 versions of EMI as well as the demo. You can view backgrounds, save backgrounds and batch-rip all backgrounds to either jpeg or bitmap.

I've released it mainly because I was bored last week and also because John_Doe's excellent EMI Resource Viewer doesnt support the PS2 .til's and doesnt do batch ripping of .til's. Many, many thanks to John_Doe for his .til specs

I can also finally add a little to the .til specs:

Bitmap header:
id	long	"BM  "
?	3*long
notiles	long	no of tiles
?	4*long	4 longs
format	long	if=16 then format=ps2 tiles, if=32 then format=pc tiles
?	22*long	22 longs
PS2 Tiles (16 Bit):
Colourdata	word	Colour data
Red=(((Colourdata shr 10) and 31) * 255)div 31;
Green=(((Colourdata shr 5) and 31) * 255) div 31;
Blue=((Colourdata and 31) * 255) div 31;
I've been trying to plug some of the other gaps in the specs by comparing Pc and PS2 tiles and by comparing tiles with and without the extra masking graphics. I havent had a lot of success so far though.
