How the heck did you make this into a playable format?! Is this basically a scrubbed iso that is scrubbed in a specific way so that its consistently reversible?

Awesome work.

Can you please post the source code so we can compile for other platforms?

Yes, it is scrubbed in a specific way, actually, i replaced non-compressable junk with compressable, it's lame, but effective
and utillity just swaps between this junks

sure

When compressing Metroid Prime (Korea), it just gives out a file of the same size, unlike nNASOS.

yes, you're right, and this file is compatible with Dolphin emulator, that's the main difference with the previous NASOS

the GCMs, produced with nasos 2:

1) does have compatibility with emulator;
2) doesn't have "randomly" generated junk;
3) can be packed by archivers;
4) can be reversed to its normal state

Metroid Prime (Korea).dec.iso, packed by 7zip, is 895 megabytes

Oh, I see. To get the size reduction I have to use an archive tool, but this makes it easier for the archive tool to compress the ISO.
