Extended DEGAS image is the name we're using for a collection of raster graphics formats associated with Atari TT and Atari Falcon computers, characterized by file extensions .PI4 through .PI9. This file extension pattern is no doubt inspired by the original DEGAS image formats, and some of the formats are clearly based on the DEGAS formats.

[edit] Formats

Format name Format details Ext. Signature File size Remarks
View ST/TT "TT-Low" 320×480(?), 256 colors, 16 bits/color .PI4 00 07 154114
Fuckpaint PI4 (Falcon) 320×240, 256 colors, 32 bits/color .PI4 (none) 77824
View ST/TT "TT-Medium" 640×480(?), 16 colors, 16 bits/color .PI5 00 04 153634
?  ? .PI6  ?  ?
TT high resolution  ? .PI7  ?  ? There might be just one PI7 format.
? 640×480, 256 colors, 32 bits/color .PI7 (none) 308224
TT low resolution  ? .PI8  ?  ?
Fuckpaint PI9 (Falcon) 320×200, 256 colors, 32 bits/color .PI9 (none) 77824 or 65024 Same as PI4, except that only the first 200 rows are used.

PI4 and PI5 formats come from a program named View ST/TT (a.k.a. ViewST/TT).

PI9 and a different PI4 format originated with a paint program unfortunately named Fuckpaint.

The origin of the other formats, and the total number of formats, is unknown.

[edit] Compression

No internal data compression is known to be used for any of the formats (the logical .PC4 through .PC9 file extensions have not been observed). But sometimes the entire file is compressed, for example with Pack-Ice.
