well lemme try to think of example games for that list.

1) rescue on fractalus v2 ntsc. should be a relatively straightforward vorpal to transwarp conversion, and it only uses one directory sector to store high scores (18:2). v1 irq loads instead. actually a major relink of the full remember release of this game would be pretty nice. have it move everything but the main and the trainer screen to the second stage load would work well.

2) staff of karnath https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5ssSZuNxeXg it would be improved by the blanking the screen for the load. :) It counts because it pauses to show a screen and play music.

3) Scarabaeus. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VBIzd2UMTgg has an actual intro that play once, then non irq loads the main game. would be a good example.

4) many later activision games would be a good bet for this. they all show the activision animated logo sequence. Master of the Lamps, Web Dimension, etc. all the later single loads do this. but it's kinda cheating, because the intro isn't game specific. so maybe do one to prove it possible?

5) booga-boo. This has a notable intro before loading the main game. the lack of protection on the existing disk release should make this particularly easy.

sigh, got the encoder, but seems it will not write transwarp files to anything but consecutive empty tracks.
without the ability to write anywhere else, there's not enough space free on the disk to write both files.

I am, i kid you not, ONE lousy block too big after g-packer.

Should have a version of TinyCrunch in a few days that packs just enough to get below 201 blocks, leaving as much data in-place as possible. Already works, just need to do a bit more testing and clean up the code a little.

Would be cool to define an arbitrary limit, to get smaller programs to just enough Transwarp tracks. =)

Zaphod - you could just.. install Python?

There's an installer off the "Downloads" tab at https://www.python.org/

There are tools like PyInstaller to create .exe existing:

Worked fine for me to create tinycrunch.exe.

Ooh, feel like adding that to the downloads on the csdb entry? My windows-fu is minimal at best.
