I don't remember installing any separate plugins. IrfanView says I have 10 installed plugins, like the IrfanPaint, video tools, etc. I believe the ability to convert images into PCX comes with the default install.

As for MGF, there is a Czech description of the format, included within the documentation for the Skeldal map editor. There are also DOS command line utilities (included on the game CD) that work with this format. A short translated description:

MGF Motion GIF ver 97

A rather complex format. It uses similar structure as FLC except for a few big differences. Firstly, it uses the LZW method for compression, commonly used in GIF files. Secondly, the whole format is optimized for video-playback in HICOLOR.
@Dagar: Yes, there were definitely some updated DOS releases. My setup.exe says it's version 1.995. An included "ctimne.txt" file says it's version 231298.
