What is a BMQ file?

Bmq file extension has Re-Volt Mipmap file type, developed by Acclaim Entertainment, which is associated with the "raster image files" category.

A PC racing game Re-Volt where you become an RC car driver uses files with this extension. They contain a low resolution .BMP images that game uses as object textures for scenes in the background to keep the frame rate optimal. Re-Volt uses these mipmap images also to boost texture rendering while playing. All those objects in the background are viewed from afar, so there is no need to use high-resolution pictures. The standard mipmap size is 256x256, the size of the next image will be halved to 128x128, then the next one will be 64x64, and so on. When you get closer to the object in the game, the BMQ image is replaced with the .BMP image that has better resolution.
