The first step when creating signature is using fidentify to check if the signature is already known.
- The DNZ file is recovered as a .zip.
- iam, idt,ipt and idw are recovered as .doc

Here are signatures for acm and ipj files:
acm 0 "PAMA" 0x00 0x03 0x00 0x00
ipj 0 0xff 0xfe 0x3c 0x00 0x3f 0x00 0x78 0x00

For .rbr, I have found any constant that I can use as signature.
For .t, you have only provided a single file. You need several to create a signature.
