Captain Comic Sprite Format
The Captain Comic Sprite Format stores the images used for drawing animated creatures in *.SHP. All frames in each image are fixed as 16×16 pixels in size. The format is very similar to the Captain Comic Tileset Format.
The file has no header - the first frame's data starts right at the beginning of the file. Each frame is 160 bytes in length.
The frames are 16-colour images, split into five planes (see Raw_EGA_data#Planar_EGA_data). Each image is stored one after the other (no header.) The planes within each image are ordered with blue first, followed by green, red, intensity and opacity last. 32 bytes per plane multipled by five planes gives 160 bytes per frame.
As each image is entirely contained within the 160 bytes, the offset of a given frame can be calculated as
offset = tile * 160
