Graphics ripper for Simon the sorcerer

I know it's not SCUMM related (it was actually based on AGOS engine) but is there anything around to rip Simon and Simon2 graphical assets like sprites and backgrounds?

A few years ago I wrote an image encode/decoder for Simon 1 (Floppy disk version only), to help someone working on a translation project. Hopefully it will be useful to you.

To use:
  1. Copy the *.VGA files into the same directory as simonimg
  2. Create a sub-directory called "dumps"
  3. Run e.g. "agos_dump_image.exe 0", to decode files 0001.VGA and 0002.VGA

The argument is a "zone", representing the first three digits of the VGA files. A zone has two files, ending in "1" or "2". So, zone "0" has files "0001.VGA" and "0002.VGA". Each zone can contain multiple images. (I guess a zone is equivalent to an in-game scene.)

If you wanted to decode all zones, you might need to write a batch script to loop through all the zones. Sorry.

There's also an encoder if that's useful to you.
