Texture Quantized Image (TQI) is a video compression algorithm used for some video files in The Sims Online. Videos encoded with this format are held in WVE video containers.
The name for this format is found in gimex.dll of The Sims 1.
Files using this format
- ./The Sims Online/TSOClient/music/eagames.wve
- ./The Sims Online/TSOClient/uigraphics/other/gmde.wve

Because the videos found in The Sims Online are not actually used in game, and they hold no valuable information (they are just the EA and Maxis logos), we will not document them here. Please refer to the following links:
