SPX pictures

Post by Nyh »

Hi

To test a picture file converter I am looking for .SPX files. A spix file is a file with multiple Spectrum 512 pictures creating one big picture. At the moment I have only two .SPX files to test. According to a .SPX viewer source there are multiple formats for .SPX files. Please send me your .SPX files so I can test my program.

I have got a big mailbox so don't be afraid to send big e-mails to:
nyh@suiker.org

Thanks
Hans Wessels

Or post them here and I'll host them on my site for a time if necessary?

I've got 9 disks worth of SPX files here. I will MSA them and get them uploaded in the next few days. Please check out the '3500 disks' thread in Chat Eng on this forum, I will post there once they are uploaded.

Yes, I have got them. Two new .SPX type files to work on! Thank you! (Also updates my packer collection. Thank you again!) You have got a nice bandwith. :-)

No worries. Marcer's disks can usually be grabbed from his FTP server:

marcer.dyndns.org on port 1698
Login: Demo
Password: Demo

I had a quick look and there is a Legion folder on there.

Cheers,

Rich

Thanks! FileZilla is busy right now. I mean, the Legion folder is now on my network drive too! :-) I think I will return to this great FTP server. Thanks Marcer, thanks Rich!

Sorry for posting in this old thread, but I have exactly the same question. I'm also looking for SPX images to test my viewer tool. Where can I download "The Legion CD 11-53" mentioned in the thread?

Thanks, downloaded. I want to say that this is a somewhat specific collection of images :)

Some files have the "ATM5" signature. Looks like they were packed by some packer. A search for "ATM5" brings up a mention of Atomik Packer. Is there documentation about the decompression algorithm?

ATOM_V36.zip
this is the most recent version I have, it's got the depack source bundled with it, but thats about it

from memory, the ATM5 part could be used with a memory resident depacker that meant you could compress .MOD files etc but still load them as normal in Protracker etc
