Does anyone here got an idea what compression is used for CC1 files? is that something known - LZW or variant of it?

There is a C/C++ Linux/Windows source standalone tool to uncompress CC1 files in the Tools-Section that is a direct port of the reversed algorithm (working with the Alpha Waves game and checked agains several other games)

Doesn't look familiar to me, but I'm fairly sure LZW works on bit-level, not byte-level, so an LZW implementation would contain more bit shifts. All shifts in this code only shift by full bytes; multiples of 8.
