Vincent van Dam has just released a new version of his DSK2ROM tool. DSK2ROM is a tool to convert disk images to ROM images. Earlier versions have already been available from the MRC Forum.
Next to a few bugfixes, this version has some major improvements by adding a conversion tool. These improvements include:

  • compression
  • more supported media types
  • SCC / ASCII8 mapper switching

Very good news! Now I only need to get my ESE ram working. Then I'll be able to flash the ESE in less than a second using the game reader and play on my msxes without the hazzle of using diskettes.

I see your point, as it's a big feature, but don't you think a "thanks for implementing my compression suggestion, it looks like it was a lot of work" would have been more fitting? Vincent already complimented you on the forum by saying he liked your idea.

*edit* great, posted simultaneously Tongue

Great tool, but this last version isnt working for me Sad

I tried again converting Blinky (with and without compression, ascii8 and konamiscc) but it just hangs when loading Sad

I still have to try with other dsks, though...

I wonder if the Mania.DSK collection can be offered as a set of .ROM files?
