    Doesn't appear to be mentioned in http://wiki.xentax.com/index.php?search=dms&title=Special:Search&fulltext=Search , https://wiki.vg-resource.com/index.php?search=dms&title=Special:Search&go=Go or https://wikivisually.com/search?qry=dms

    Someone named puggsoy on https://www.vg-resource.com/thread-31216.html seems to have a good start
    Picture from that

    For that one
    803x680 panel size
    Tile size 8x8
    16 bits per pixel (16bpp)
    Little Endian
    2 byte skip
    1 pixel width skip
    8 pixel height skip

    Palette (what determines the colours) is in the same dms file.
    0x0 (so start of the file)
    TIle size 8x2
    2 Bytes per colour (16 bit colours basically)
    RGB order
    Big Endian for the palette
    Linear mode
    Alpha bits at the end bit apparently ignored
    Skip size of 1 colour.

    Tiledggd is a wonderful program for graphics ripping. You can get it

    Seems the game guy that found this also did a fork of it https://github.com/puggsoy/tiledggd-pe-
