 Notes:

 This one was not easy because of all the problems (DMA, blitter, disk accesses,
 disk format). Thanks to WHDLoad developper team, especially Bert & Girv for advice
 on that point.
 The MFM decoding was not a piece of cake either. But recently, as
 I took the job to adapt another version of "The Blues Brothers" install by
 Mr Larmer, I noticed that the track length of the Titus game was special: $1400
 bytes, which is rather odd because custom formats are usually longer than DOS
 tracks (DOS: $1600 bytes). I tried the imager on the James Pond warp file just
 for fun and ... it worked!!! I just had to adapt the imager to the disk map.
 A strange fact since both games (Blues Brothers & James Pond) are not linked by
 coder or by company. (I heard that Thalion used this format too).
