The INTRO.DD2 file stores a masked image used at the start of Dangerous Dave 2. It differs in format and compression from all other files used in the game.

The file is a 256x64 Raw EGA data image compressed using RLEW compression The color dark blue is transparent here, acting as a mask while only needing 4 EGA planes.

Dave 2 uses a trigonometric function to work out the image's size and co-ordinates when displaying it.
