The spr file extension is associated with the id Software Quake Engine (also known as id Tech 1 and id Tech 2).

The Sprite, or SPR, by id Software (for 3d engines) is basically a single or series of 2D images, with additional 3D orientation data in the header.

Engines that uses this format of sprites are Quake 1 and Quake 2, also the Valve Half-Life engine.

id's Sprites are indexed 8-bit images using no compression, fairly easy to understand, extract data from and render.

The moding community however have made some improvements to the original specifications to allow 32-bit sprites. However, only modern engines such as Darkplaces, FTE QW, VengeanceR2 and such supports it.
