4) graphics are compressed

Yes, the scr5 graphics seem to be compressed with some kind of lzw. I'm not sure if that applies to the scr4 graphics (Like Space Manbow, the game uses scr4, then split the screen to scr5 for the score bar), but it seems those are not compressed.

For the compressed graphics, the game decompresses them in VRAM to use during the gameplay. This is when did I took a look at the VRAM, using the openMSX-debugger.

I don't know how to find compressed graphics so I just checked this to rule out the possibility of it having spaces between each letter.

Interesting algorithm!

Option 2 is one I forgot if you mean for instance an A having a LOWER value than a B.

It's a good idea to check it as this, but it will still be the option-3. The option-2 uses bit rotation inside the byte, so the value distance between the letters is not constant anymore. Konami loves this method. The hexeditor of Simple3 (Aka MegaAssembler) does this kind of search by default, returning an rotation offset that can be used as a parameter for the DISP command later. If you want, you could try it on some Konami 16KB or 32KB game to test, then later try it on PW.
