Parse RESOURCE.MAP file

import { readFile } from 'fs/promises';
import { parseAllMappings } from '@4bitlabs/sci0';

const resourceMap = await readFile('path/to/RESOURCE.MAP');
const [mapping] = parseAllMappings(resourceMap);

Working ResourceMap Entires

import { getResourceNumber, getResourceTypeStr } from '@4bitlabs/sci0';

// finding by type
const firstPic = mapping.find((it) => getResourceTypeStr(it.id) === 'Pic');

// ...or by specific resource number.
const num11 = mapping.find((it) => getResourceNumber(it.id) === 11);

Getting the actual data

import { parseHeaderFrom, decompress } from '@4bitlabs/sci0';

// Get the resource file that contains this asset, and its offset where the header starts.
const { file, offset } = mapping.find(
  (it) => getResourceTypeStr(it.id) === 'Pic',
);

const resource = await readFile(
  `path/to/RESOURCE.${file.toString().padStart(3, '0')}}`,
);

// Parse the asset header
const header = parseHeaderFrom(resFile.subarray(offset, offset + 8));
// Determine the payload length
const payloadLength = getPayloadLength(header);
// Snip out the bytes from the payload.
const compressed = resFile.subarray(offset + 8, start + payloadLength);
// Decompress the asset data
const data = decompress('sci0', header.compression, compressed);

import { renderPic } from '@4bitlabs/sci0';
import { RAW_CGA, generateSciDitherPairs, CGA_PAIRS } from '@4bitlabs/color';
import { createDitherFilter, renderPixelData } from '@4bitlabs/image';

const picData = Pic.parseFrom(data);
const { visible, priority, control } = renderPic(picData);
const image = renderPixelData(visible, {
  dither: createDitherFilter(CGA_PAIRS),
});
