    hello, I would like to request that my username be changed to "sonikchilidog". the reason i am requesting this is because another person online wishes to use "sonicchilidog"; my old tag, as their alias on other platforms (and has done so already). i also wish to keep my online identity as consistent as possible, as I have already changed most accounts to the new name shortly after I created the romhacking account, so i don't want people to confuse the two of us. tysm

Monster World CODEC

Compression / Decompression

Description:

Program for packing and unpacking data in such games as “Monster World 4″ and “Wonder Boy In Monster World”. The program has simple and intuitively clear interface. In the program the method of compression is realized only by Huffman + LZ77. In a game this method marks under a number 2.

Example: Game Monster World 4. The game at $ C0000 - $ C12FF is a block of pointers to the compressed data. Pointers 4 byte. The high byte is actually not a pointer. He points to the compression method.

00 - the data is not compressed.

01 - data is compressed by some algorithm.

02 - the data is compressed by LZ77 + Huffman

Example: A pointer type of $020C1300:

02 - this compression method LZ77 + Huffman.

0C1300 - this is the address of the block of compressed data. It is this address must be entered in the Offset field in the program.
