A little info on Tahaxan:
Tahaxan is a ROM tool that breaks up a game into individual pieces of data, for quick retrieval of maps and such.
Unfortunately, Tahaxan's original website no longer exists, so as far as I know, you can only get Tahaxan and its plugins from people who have already downloaded them. (please correct me if they have a new website; I'd really like to visit!)
Right now I'm ripping maps from Pokemon Ranger for Spriter's Resource. I'd like to rip from Shadows of Almia and Guardian Signs, but Tahaxan can't read .lz files or .acz files. I'd really like to know if there are plug-ins somewhere for this or if there's something else I can do to fix the situation.
(note: there is a plug-in thread on spriter's resource about this, but the download link is dead and the poster was unable to help me, so don't post that link if you find it)
