PRG2SID 1.00 (/) iAN CooG/HVSC
Automatically attaches a PSID header to a ripped (prg) tune.

Identifies some players and sets init/play accordingly, also patches
the header and code if needed.

Default init/play addresses are $1000/1003 (actually loadaddress/loadaddress+3)
and are set like that for all unknown players.

Usage: p2s <filename.prg> [load_addr] [6/8] [P/N]

Output name will always have input base name plus .sid extension, whether
input name has an extension or not. If input file is already a PSID/RSID file,
won't be processed.

You can override the loadaddress by specifying the new one as 2nd parameter, to
avoid the need to cut the file manually up to the music file start address.

For example if you have an unpacked prg ranging from $0801 to $9fff generated
by UNP64, and the music is located at $1000, use:

p2s your_unpacked_file.prg $1000

New loadaddress must be contained between real loadaddress and end file address,
and can be specified in decimal or hex (use prefix $ or 0x). It will be ignored
if the value is out of range.

Other optional parameters 3 and 4:
6 for 6581 (default) or 8 for 8580.
P for PAL  (default) or N for NTSC.

Electrosound tune speed must be manually found from the prg being ripped.
Search for STA $02ff or POKE 767. The default setting is for one subtune, the
value is at $1b15 and must be changed with the correct speed. For more subtunes
just add the speed values after $1b15 as it's indexed with the subtune number.

Special cases with fixed init/play address but variable loadaddress.
Doesn't cover manual relocs or hacks at other addresses.

Scans whole file to find the entry pattern, AD 04 D4 29 FE 8D 04 D4 etc,
then patches code to allow setting init/play, code is added at entry-$0d.
Before p2s v0.71, MasterComposer tunes were ripped leaving the internal IRQ
player, but Sidplay64 couldn't play them due to a missing CLI, NOPped by error.
Just rerip with p2s 0.71 or later to patch them with proper init/play.

Scans whole file to find the entry pattern AD xx xx 30 03 D0 22 60 18 29 7F A2,
usually at $c666, then patches an init/play routine at $c600/c603.

A-Man/5_Dimension is also identified as Soundmaker3/UA due to generic ID.

Of course load address must be $080d or lower, player address is always there
due to the size of samples, will be hardly found relocated anywhere else..

Deflemask v12 improves slightly the data compression over v2, and if data goes
over $a000, a different player is used, which does bank-switching during reads.
This player doesn't have space to patch JMPs at $1000, so the actual init/play
addresses are set in sid header directly.

Fixes since v0.80
- better handling of filename, in case path contains a "." now the extension of
  generated sid file is correctly appended.
- every player detection now checks for a minimal filesize, for example a
  Future composer tune can't be less than 0x200 bytes and so on.
- new players identified:
  Ariston       , adds init at $0ffa, 2 versions covered
  Henrik Jensen
  Hubbard v3    , ACE_II and hacks
  Hubbard v4    , adds JMPs at $1000/1003 if there's space.
  Hubbard v5    , adds JMPs at $1000/1003 if there's space.
  ICC/The Voice , only special case 1003/1000 covered.
  MegaVision    , patches init at $1000.
  Roland Hermans, only special case 1006/1000 covered.
  Winterberg    , replaces irq installer with init/play
- changed players IDs:
  BeatBox/KarlXII: was wrongly attributed to Gaunt
  GMC/Superiors  : Now identifies tunes starting from $1014 (1000-1013 stripped)
  Heathcliff v1  : Relaxed id to find more, 1 byte could have been different.
  MusicAssembler : Now identifies tunes starting from $1021 (1000-1020 stripped)
  MusicMixer     : Now identifies tunes starting from $1029 (1000-1028 stripped)
  SidDuzzIt 2.07 : TAX added in init only if needed, some hacks already have it.

Fixes since v0.90
- new players identified:
  Burgstaller v1/v2/v3/v4 (slight differences in init)
  Deflemask v2/v12 (adds JMPs at $1000 when possible)
  SkylineTech/Danne (automatic remap of $01xx buffer to $02xx)
- Cybertracker/EXE, removed JSR $4D00 (rasterbars), reported by Groepaz.
- Future Composer 4.x (packed), automatic remap of $01xx buffer to $02xx, makes
  GRG's SidPlay64 happy.
- Parsec/LoS: added 1 variant with slightly offset code.
- Winterberg, added $dc04 setting.

Fixes since v0.97
- added a little safeguard on creation of target sid: in case the input file
  is too large, the sid would exceed $ffff.
- added parameters 3 & 4 to set sidmodel and PAL/NTSC in output sid header.
- added an autofixer for Arne/AFL player, there is a potentially dangerous
  LDA $DD0E that would prevent setting volume, now nopped automatically.
