Unpacking Request? Lazer Zone (Phenomena)

Strange request this one, and I don't know if I'm asking in the right place *or* if this is even possible, but I'm a fan of this game (http://hol.abime.net/3510) and would really like to remove the decompacting 'flashing' that occurs as the game is loading. File attached.

If it can't be decompressed, is there any way of editing the HEX so that the screen doesn't flash? I only ask because I know this is possible with packed programs on the Atari ST...

Simply unpack the file.

I'm referring to the decompacting flashing when you load the game... What unpacker should I use?

An area inside the executable is Bytekiller Data packed, my tool are able to unpack this data, but then its not an executable anymore.

Kill flash but not decompact via hex editor: search/replace 33C000DFF180(1st occurence) AND 33C600DFF180 WITH 4E714E714E71.

There is a file in The Zone Called "lazer" for you. It is not flashing when decrunching.

This is odd - on the Atari you do almost exactly the same thing!

Not too surprising, Ataris use the same 680x0 CPU's.
