PRG2SID 0.64 (/) 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/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> [new_load_addr]

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.

Identified players (assuming loadaddress is $1000):

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.

scans whole file to find the entry pattern, AD 04 D4 29 FE 8D 04 D4 etc,
then patches some CLI.
Clean with Sidclean to remove unneeded data, but that goes without saying for
every ripped sid, right? ;)

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.
