The info is based on an Atari ST memory dump.
I don't remember if the save routine copies the raw character memory block to disk or writes the character data in a special format.
I will have a look in the disassembly.

No, only the memory data.
But it shouldn't be difficult. Usually, savegames are only data mapped from memory to disk.

You mean different from the Atari file format saved on disk or the Atari memory dump?
Did you try saving a game on ST and comparing the file with the Amiga one ?
