BARGAIN is a lossless compression tool for MSX images in screen mode 5 up to 12.

So there should read "an image compression toolkit NOT for all MSX screen modes has been released. ". Smile Or mention that it is MSX2 only, me thinks.

Great compression tool!
Only need to have C or Pascal libraries, I can see only Basic or ASM...

@MäSaXi: err, my Japanese is a bit rusty, but I think MSX2でSCREEN0-12の画像を可逆圧縮して閲覧ができるソフトです。means it does support all screen modes now Smile

I'm still voting for support for rectangular areas. Makes it a bit easier to combine a few separately compressed areas. And of course C support would be nice so I can include it in Polka2.
