Re: Packing executable

Just a few quick notes regarding UPX: It employs a few different packing algorithms and you can force it to try them all and choose the best automatically by using the switch --best or --ultra-brute. The only thing to bear in mind is that after v3.03 an extra algorithm was added for --ultra-brute that takes an age to depack! So personally I'm sticking with 3.03 --ultra-brute.

As for packfire... I dunno. This thing was supposed to be fixed in v1.2i. If it's the same .prg as you're going to release I'll make a note to download it, unpack it, pack it with packfire and see what's happening...
