Ok. Still using bitbuster after jannone's conversor outputs a file of 3435 bytes. M-o-m beats that by more than 200 bytes or about 6%, so it's probably a better solution. If you consider 100 images, that difference would be about 20 KB!

What if I use those decompression routines in my project? Project... well... "intention" is a better fitting word Big smile
I suppose some kind of credit must be given, expecially considering I would like to keep everything free and open.
Well, you can easily guess it won't be any piece of exoteric software someone would keep secret Tongue
The worth of the project shoud hopefully be somewhere else Big smile

I'd credit the authors of the packers/decoders and any other tool you used in the instructions.

Sorry for bothering again. I guess a nice assembler would turn out useful, too. I've found DEV PAC 80 among my old floppies but it has no documentation and id doesn't look very comfortable. Any suggestion/reccomandation?

Yes, use a cross assembler. Sjasm, asMSX, tniASM, pasmo, etc. Plenty of options available.

If you finally decide to go for a megaROM, asMSX includes predefined macros to create / manage megaROM pages easily. But probably sjasm is more complete. It's up to you now! Being all crossassemblers, they'll make your task much easier.

Here I am again.
At first, thank you very much m(_ _)m
Then, another question! Hope I don't become a pain in the ass... (^_^)7
I can see there's a lot of software coming in .dsk images.
Is there a way to unpack them into an ordinary folder under Win7?
I've got Padial SD reader and I would move all the stuff there.
