---moexconv readme---:

Moexconv is a program that converts graphics data from the X68000 game
"Cyberblock Metal Orange EX" to the .png format.

License: GPLv3+

1. Dump your copy of Cyberblock Metal Orange EX to two .xdf files.

2. Use a program such as DiskExplorer
(https://hp.vector.co.jp/authors/VA013937/editdisk/index_e.html) to copy all the
files from both of the disks into the in/ directory.
3. Use a program such as run68 (https://osdn.net/projects/sfnet_run68/) along with ITA lzx
(http://retropc.net/x68000/software/tools/archiver/italzx/) to extract the
contents of the MO_EX.x file (lzx.x -d -o MO_EXd.x MO_EX.x). Rename MO_EXd.x to
MO_EX.x and replace the "MO_EX.x" file in the in/ directory/

4. If you are using a case sensitive filesystem (such as on Linux), run this command to fix the
filenames (or just rename them as errors come up):
find . -regex "\./[A-E][0-9].*". -exec sh -c 'name={}; noext=${name%.*}; newname=$(echo $noext | perl -ne "print lc"); newname="${newname}.MO"; mv $name $newname' \;

5. Compile and run moexconv. All the extracted files should appear in the out/ directory.

Known issues:
1. Not all graphics data is currently extracted. If you know of
any missing graphics data, feel free to fix it and submit a patch to the
libremo-devel mailing list (https://lists.sr.ht/~ndiddy/libremo-devel).

2. The tutorial graphics data isn't well formatted.

3. It would be nicer if moexconv took care of decompressing the MO_EX.x
executable but I don't feel like reversing the ITA lzx compression.

Unknown issues?  Please report them to the libremo-devel mailing list.
