The only 16Kb ROM that worked so far is "Becky". "Bokosuka wars" starts but the graphics is completely broken, and "Choro-Q" shows the opening screen properly and then freezes.

Good work, cesco. I'm really looking for the release of this application!

I think the program will be really great,
indipendently from the "ROM to BIN"
conversion feature.

By the way friends, is someone aware
of utils that already do this conversion?
I had a look and read about the MSXR2B
utility, you may try asking author for source
code parts, or simply call msxr2b as an
external program (but that's not multiplatform).

Hope it helps. My best regards, Andrea

andrear1979,

MicroWAVer converts ROM to WAV, and during the process it compresses and creates a self-extractable BIN version of the ROM, as a byproduct. Most of 32K ROMs after compression become smaller than 24K, so no splitting into 2 BINs is required.

cesco, does it require any special configuration to play WAV on iPod ?
I mean fade in/out and various sound filters can be a problem.
Player should play WAV as is, that's the point.
I got best results on a MT1389-based DVD, with all audio processing switched off.

Yesterday I had to stay awake until 3am before understanding what to do with NYYRIKKI source code and getting some proper results, but today I'm really happy to say that ROM conversion is working... only with 8Kb ROMs, but... hey... it's a start Wink

o_O You really put that in !? I must say that I'm a bit surprised. Maybe you should indeed try to contact Microwaver makers and see if you could get permission to include some of their code as a plugin for example.

Here are some suggestions for the user interface:
Import = Merge
Export = Convert
Add = Import

I think that you also should add handling routines for pressing Cancel in prompts.

The import feature (add) seems to also lack possibility to add binary files. Also when you add encoded Basic file it appears as ASCII file instead of Basic file.

I also suggest that you make just common import-button that autodetects the file type:

- Files that start with "AB" or have *.ROM extension are handled as ROM
- Files starting with #FE are Binary files
- Files starting with #FF are encoded Basic files
- other *.txt and *.bas files are ASCII files
- rest of the files are RAW blocks

I also miss very much export-button for easy cassette to diskette conversions.
