4.39 ROM for RPCEMU from CD

Postby fire_lizard » Tue May 09, 2017 10:42 pm

Hi everyone.

I have two CDs (6.20 Select and 4.39).

If I want to make a ROM from 6.20 Select CD I write the following command in Unix:

Code: Select all

tail -c +21 Select6i1 > Select.Z
uncompress Select.Z

And the question is:
What should be number of bytes for the Unix tail command for the OS439 file in 4.39 CD?

Thanks in advance.

I don't know if the 4.39 ROM is compressed at all. If it's exactly 4MB or 6MB already it's not compressed, else it'll be 21 bytes again.
