Solved geting data from dos game

Specs: Windows 7
Hi, short question? There is a Dos game in Germany that can not be resold by law. The game is called "The Fugger 2" by Sunflowers Interactive. It no longer has a license because the Fugger family has sued and won against the Softwear.

I would like to build a graphically improved clone for myself and my friends. My question is: Is it possible to unpack all graphics screens? Thus, I would have a list of screens that I have to recreate. And is there a way to read the game mechanics?

I hope you can help me. Many Thanks.

✔ Best Answer
Unfortunately, many DOS games used proprietary graphical formats, which often weren't reused for any other game. In this case, you have 2 options:
1) Spend the time investigating the game's data files and figuring out the format(s) of the graphics, often a difficult and time-consuming task.
2) Play through the game, taking screenshots, and recreate the graphics from the screenshots.
