Script to convert game & demo collections to HxC SD images

Postby troed » Fri May 25, 2012 1:25 pm

(Re-posted here since it was really meant for the HxC Floppy Emu to begin with)

For your enjoyment, the fruits of a few nights' labour. The Mac-only bash script: "ziptohfe".

Converts the contents of the CD release "ATARI ST Pirate Gold" by Skinhead/ICS into something I wanted - image files (for emulators) and specifically HFE-images (for the HxC Floppy Emulator). Supports using the "long names" from included FILES.BBS files, preserves two level alphabetically sorted directory structure and creates three separate outputs: unpacked, images and hfe.

Now updated to v1.20, and support has been added for the excellent demo archives No Fragments Archive One and No Fragments Archive Two aswell: http://no-fragments.atari.org/

In short: If you have an HxC SD floppy emu and you like to play games or watch demos then this is the best thing that has happened to you ;)

(See discussion there for what should be a very easy Linux adaption for anyone who wants to give it a stab. I'm Mac only myself)
