PowerPacker LoadSeg Shell Decruncher

I was looking for a standalone decruncher that support decrunching PowerPacker LoadSeg files from shell and to my surprice I found one, PPCrack. Out of all PP decrunchers I've checked only a few support loadseg and only that one that works from shell. Are there really no others out there or have I simply overlooked something?

I in Dopus4 use LX, unpack everything (152 formats) but you need to have all the libraries required in Libs (you can find them in the archive)

LX doesn't seem to handle LoadSeg files correctly. It does say it detect it as a LoadSeg file but the output file is smaller than the original, the Hunk is incorrect (Hunk_Reloc table error?). It is Libraries I've packed and although the decrunched output isn't the same and I no longer can run Version on it programs still seem to work with this weird library, think it's safe to use "as is"?

Strange, can you attach some compressed files

xpkmaster has powerpacker support.

xPK is the shell program to handle compresssed files.

Here's an archive with the original file, the LoadSeg PowerPacker crunched file, the LX decrunched output and for funsies a Drel32 striphunked one.

It's for a bootfloppy, hence the powerpacked library files as space is a premium. Trying to see if there's something smaller to extract with than what I've found so far and xPK is not smaller than PPCrack.

You want to run packed binaries of a floppy? There's xLoadSeg in the xpkmaster archive that does that. Does it have to be powerpacker? xpkNUKE uses pretty much the same algorithm. I've used it on my Hombre disk and works great.

The packed file is strange. xpk doesn't recognize it but xfd works.

I'm not dead set on PowerPacker, I want what saves the most space and can patch into LoadSeg and be decrunched and PP was the only thing that I got to work so am greatfull to se another LoadSeg patch that works. Even though the xPK's libraries are over 4 times that of PowerPacker the executables was a bit smaller and together with SHRI crunching the libraries it did edge out PowerPacker by about 3kb.

As I told you this does not happen to me, LX unpacks the file with the same original size, see video.
Of course, LX can also unpack data files (icons, txt, image, sound) compacted with PowerData, see video.
