Toy World 1 bitmap example: ToyliteA.bmp (256x256)

A bitmap (or "map of bits", also known as raster graphics image) is a dot matrix data structure, representing a generally rectangular grid of pixels.
Raster images are stored in image files with varying formats. In the PC version of Re-Volt, the file extension used for textures is the BMP, which most image editors can create and modify, including Microsoft Paint. Dreamcast version uses PVR files, and Playstation uses BIN (which are basic RAW images) and PAL (palette files).

The retail engine standard dimension for textures is 256x256 pixels (24-bits). Textures are auto resized if they aren't within the standard, but odd artifacts may occur if the size difference is too much big. Fortunately, the Re-Volt fan patches 1.2 and RVGL allow the use of higher dimensions without resizing it to 256x256 pixels. The texture needs to be power-of-two though.
