Maybe you missed by point on that post..

What i meant was compressionschemes like .COP and similar..

i recall that even XAD or XFD don't yet have the capability to extract that one..

LZX works for me on the real amiga and so on and so forth, but some of the new users out there and the typical emulation newbie has serious problems when encountering these..

You find a game X from the net and it's compressed with some other platform compression program, and there is no uncompresser made for the PC the user has.. the alternatives?

User has to pull rabbits out of the hat just to extract the files to use on an emulator? Way too much hassle, IMHO..

Zip has practically taken over the world as the de facto compression to use.. (although i admit it's not the best possible)
