Issue description
Item 201 imported from sourceforge.net tracker on 2013-01-28 18:15:21

There are some corrupt pictures in base/pics, in particular in base/pics/sfx, e.g. shadow.tga and uexp_00.tga. I'm in the process of sorting through them. Some are not even used...

Please confirm that base/pics/sfx/uexp_00.tga is corrupt (it opens OK in gimp, but other programs moan about excess data and the picture itself is blank even in gimp).

The base/pics/sfx/shadow.tga seems corrupt, gimp shows it as blank and compressed it to 1% of its size, but the game works OK with that base/pics/sfx/shadow.tga and works wrong with its version from techdemo1. Strage. Are these some weird nonstandard tga file with texture/model/level/watever flags inside? Can somebody enlighten me?

the are made with corel photopaint. gimp can't handle the alpha channel corel generates - don't know why....
