Ok, when you click to get the description of an item you also get an illustration of it to the left, what kind of format are these in? Can I add in my own and if so how?

Those are also BAMs. The in-game ones for the description sceeen all start with C, I believe. For example CCLCK20.bam is the description screen image where ICLCK20.bam is the inventory image for and item called CLCK20 (Cloak of the Shield). You can review all these in NI. To make my own description pic for a custom BAM, I save the palette off a .gif copy of an in-game description BAM in Photoshop using the "Save Color Table." I then convert my new inventory icon to that palette with "Load Color Table." Most graphics programs probably have a way of doing the same thing.

I usually make items in DLTCEP, where you simply type in the bam names in the "Icon & Item atributes" tab. In NI, the description BAM is set at the "Carriedicon" for the item.
Newt had always suspected that people who regularly used the word "community" were using it in a very specific sense that excluded him and everyone he knew.

Oh my. I've been using the eyedropper tool and the colour sliders all this time.  :-[
