Data Packers

Are there any blitz libraries for unpacking music/graphic data crunched with powerpacker/imploder or any of the more popular amiga packing tools?

In my demo alien apparat
[ Show youtube player ]
which was entirely made in BB I've used stone cracker (STC) to pack all animations and images that are preloaded into memory.

There's no STC library as such but STC provides decrunching routine that I compiled (assembled) in Asm One to binary form and INCBIN'ed into bb code and used it as procedure I jumped to (JSR) to unpack data.

Maybe not the straightforward approach but it worked fine.

Oh. one more thing. Why haven't I used the decrunch routine in BB code as src code? well for some reason the asm code of STC decruncher couldn't be compiled by BB and throwed errors during compilation.

There is the Romuluscrunchlib which works with Imploder or CrunchMania packed objects.

@idrougge Thanks a lot this seems to fill my needs and I found this lib on the Blitz CD! Imploder is quite standard, I will try using that
