It is a "compiled" resource file, they uses their own resource
compiler (I don't know how compatible the format is with ms).
I tried to send it directly to the compiler, it started to compile it
and generated a lot of invalid bla bla.., instead of sending it to the
Then I created an RES->OBJ conversion (filename.res -> filename_res.
