Hello, can you tell me which version of Mess , or even a better another program, to convert SORD M5 .cas files to .wav?
also, is there a way to convert SORD M5 rom files into wav files?
thanks

I think you can use MESS's Imgtool to conver from cas to wav. Try this:

Quote:
Use \mess\tools\imgtool\imgtool.exe to convert from .cas to .wav
Example: imgtool.exe get sord_cas <file.cas> data.wav <file.wav>


And you can not convert from ROM to wav because rom files represent chips inserted in the machine or in a rom expansion board and thus, are not loaded the same way as cassettes.

Hope this helps.

and I get
sord_cas: unrecognized format

and if I type
imgtool.exe get (barricade.cas) data.wav (barricade.wav)

I get
(barricade.cas): unrecognized format

Why you want convert .cas to .wav ?
The .cas format is already supported.

Mount the cassette image (.cas) and the Basic cartridge.
Depent of the software type " TAPE " or " CHAIN " to load the software.

Yes, castool can convert the .cas to .wav format.
Example:

castool convert sord5m ZacBanic.cas ZacBanic.wav

and it works.

to put the program on a tape and use it on a real machine? I cannot imagine another use for this (even if I doubt this was OP's intention)...
