Block header size[edit]

This was made with the goal of identifying the last value at the block headers, the file is well formed but the value in red has been modifyed, originally was a 0x10 and has been changed to 0x20

At the time the area at 0xA0 is loaded (block id 0x00FF intended to store the file_info) the real header size is 0x10 but the value changed takes the next 0x10 bytes as part of the header... so it starts reading the file_info at offset 0xC0

This is how it looks when this file is converted GIM to GIS, note the strings at the bottom how has been cropped

.GIS 1.00

Picture "picture-0" {
	Image "image-0" {
		Format RGBA8888
		Order NORMAL
		Width 4
		Height 2
		PitchAlign 16
		HeightAlign 1
		PlaneMask 0x00000000
		LevelType MIPMAP
		LevelCount 1
		FrameType SEQUENCE
		FrameCount 1
		UserData "userdata-0" {
			0x52455355 0x41544144 0x41455241
		}
		Pixels "pixels-0" RGBA8888 NORMAL 4 2 16 1 {
			0x00115ECA 0x00125ECA 0x00135ECA 0x00145ECA
			0x00215ECA 0x00225ECA 0x00235ECA 0x00245ECA
		}
	}
}

FileInfo "file_info-0" {
	ProjectName "istrator"
	UserName "Thu Apr 19 09:22:51 2018"
	SavedDate "GimConv 1.20h"
	Originator "GimConv 1.20h"
}

Also, the length of the value marked in red is confirmed to be 4 bytes, it can be seen how the bytes are swapped when using the setting format_endian = little/big
