UPDATED 10/10/02:
I removed the requirement for a DLL as well as tidying up the code and removing a few minor memory leaks. If you're using an older version I highly recommend swapping it for this one, the changes which need to be made are minimal.
I spent a long time scouring the net looking for code to read the information out of gifs. I finally found the code thanks to Stephen Lebans ( So I set about writing this dll and module to utilise his code in DirectX7. I think the results speak for themselves. Please read the readme.txt file before opening the code. Oh, and by the way, the graphics are from my game at They are only concept graphics, which is why the guy doesn't have a head =) Thank you

Note: Due to the size or complexity of this submission, the author has submitted it as a .zip file to shorten your download time. Afterdownloading it, you will need a program like Winzip to decompress it.Virus note:All files are scanned once-a-day by Planet Source Code for viruses, but new viruses come out every day, so no prevention program can catch 100% of them. For your own safety, please:
  1. Re-scan downloaded files using your personal virus checker before using it.
  2. NEVER, EVER run compiled files (.exe's, .ocx's, .dll's etc.)--only run source code.
  3. Scan the source code with Minnow's Project Scanner

If you don't have a virus scanner, you can get one at many places on the net
