Put your ROM into the same folder as Zcompress. To simplify everything, rename your ROM to zelda.smc. Find a CMD.exe on your computer (there should be one in the system32 folder for example) and COPY that into the folder with Zcompress and the ROM. Double-click the CMD.exe, type in "zcompress 0 zelda.smc allgfx.bin" and then hit enter. This will extract all of the graphics into one bin file. If you leave out the "allgfx.bin" part it will extract the graphics into a bunch of smaller files.

If you get the most recent version of Zcompress you won't have to worry about adding a totally useless header to your ROM. Zcompress is a bit picky about file sizes so make sure your ROM isn't some unusual size like 1,027kb. If your ROM hasn't already been through HM yet this shouldn't be a problem though.

Any further instructions you will need are in the readme.

Also its important @Eurockbrok
The rom name is exact the same as the original

"THE LEGEND OF ZELDA" Wink
ps you can make an batch file to its easy to make and to use

Compress.bat like so

zcompress 1 87200 Zelda3.smc Zelda3Gfx.bin
@pause

Decompress.bat like so
zcompress.exe 0 Zelda3.smc Zelda3Gfx.bin
@pause

Note to Erock: That only applies to the internal name, not the file name. If you have not purposely changed this in HM or in a hex editor it will not be an issue.
