What is a .BO1 file?

A .BO1 file is a special type of image file that is used in video games made with Odyemu. Think of it like a sticker or a skin that goes over parts of the game to make it look a certain way. These files are actually pictures, similar to the photos you have on your computer, but they are saved in a way that makes them easy for the Odyemu game to use without taking up too much space. This is done through a process called run-length encoding, which is a fancy way of saying that the file is compressed to be smaller in size but can still show the image as intended when used in the game.

The .BO1 files are specifically used with Odyemu video games that have the .MO1 file extension. So, if you're playing a game that runs on Odyemu and you see some cool graphics or skins, there's a good chance they might be coming from a .BO1 file.

To open or work with a .BO1 file, you would typically use the Odyemu program itself. This is because the file is designed to be integrated into an Odyemu game, and the program knows exactly how to handle and display the image correctly within the game's environment. Other standard image viewers or editors might not be able to open .BO1 files properly because of the specific way they are encoded and because they are meant for a specific use within Odyemu games.
