The /B modifier cannot be removed. It indicates BINARY copy. If it is not included, files are appended using ASCII format. If any of them has a valid EOF code, the output will be truncated instead of being a sequential copy of both files.

Oh, and one thing to add to the readme, how to make the ROM on MS-DOS:

copy dsk2rom.rom /b + yourdisk.dsk /b myrom.rom

It can be used like this:

copy /b dsk2rom.rom+yourdisk.dsk myrom.rom

Amazing!
Now, it is possible to do those graphic Adventure games for MSX1 or MSX2 without much trouble ...

4 mega-bit (512 KB) and 6 mega-bit (768 KB) games waiting for Beta testers.

So, it seems there is compression now. How good is it? Can most 720kB games be fit into a 512kB MegaFlashROM SCC?

Great work Vincent!

Great news. Especialy for Manuel Pazos. His flashROMs are becoming a must more and more.

Hi, I have tried dsk2rom with msxmania images and Megaflashrom 512 SCC, and it works great !!

But I cannot make it work with compressed images. I use the following orders from the MS-DOS prompt:

copy /B dsk2rom.rom + mania064.dsk mania064.rom
dsk2rom -c 2 mania064.rom man064c.rom

and later in MSX-DOS:

opf man064c.rom

... and it just don't work. Am I missing something here ?

I think you're mixing things... you just have to type (from MS-DOS)

dsk2rom -c 2 mania064.dsk man064c.rom

... and that's all

Thank you! Problem solved! But now I have found another issue. I have tried with those dsk images of compilations of classic games of a well known company in which some of them were adapted to use the SCC chip. The games run ok but SCC sound is not used, only PSG. My flashrom has SCC, and those games run with SCC if I use the standalone ROM versions of them (extracted from the disks). May be something with the slots ?

Edit myself: Using the disk does not work too. It should be that it was supposed to use the SCC+ version of the chip. So, everything is ok with dsk2rom!
