Where is the LZ-NES NES CHR compressor? (by Tokumaru)

Where is the LZ-NES NES CHR compressor? (by Tokumaru)

I needed the certain program because I have to use it. But couldn't find it.

The reason is Tokumaru's only link to the program is dead. Because it uses a
site that deletes certain files during a period of time (30 days?). And that can explain why I hate these type of download sites!

(If you are reading this, Tokumaru, Please reupload it in a trustful server, Not those crappy ones that constantly delete download links after a certain time.)

Uh! Sorry man, I even forgot to answer your message. My bad. I'll look for it now and will upload again ASAP, wait just a second.

EDIT: This link seems to be working fine. I changed the extension to JPG because that crappy host won't take ZIP files, so you have to right-click the link and select "Save target/link as", and then change the extension back to ZIP.

Thanks!

Also, I've made myself a NES huffman compressor and decompressor this weekend. It's SRAM based, I shall post it here someday when I'll polish my work more.

Is it done yet?

It's only been 6 days!

Oh okay, since people actually care about it I'll make a public web page about it. It should be done in a few days then if I don't forget doing it when coming back from scool.

Just got the lzss code working, great job! Compressor scripts are well done and the asm is very easy to integrate into existing projects.

Thanks! Just want to remind everyone that this is not any sort of public release, I was just sharing my private tests. If anyone finds any use for this, great, but I haven't even documented anything (I can't even remember how the data is encoded without looking at the decompressor), so it's not really a solid library or anything like that.

Since data compression is a topic that really interests me, I might work on it some more in the future, improving the compression ratio if possible. I'll let everyone know.
