This is also not true. The MSS compression structure has nothing to do with the word-alignment. The compression algorithm itself works fine even with odd data addresses as you can see on the A1200....

To show that crunched content can differ, here an example:

To compress the data 44 44 44 44 you can do so with

Thanks to Nico Bendlin we found the reason. The pre-68020 CPUs don't allow odd (non word-aligned) data addresses. And as Ambermoon reads the data as long-words it crashes on such CPUs. This happens...
