Using the OSDK you could use "header.exe" to remove the header information and then "bin2txt.exe" to convert the binary data to an assembler (or C) source code.

You can also try Oric Explorer, although I'm not 100% sure it would fit what you need.
It allows to explore TAP files and can display them as binary or source code. All you have to do then is copy and paste.

With a combination of Oric Explorer to get the file i want on a.tap, header and bin2txt from osdk i've succeeded in my extraction.
Now i'll modify my .fnt for the game i intend to make.

Graphics are on going (with a combine of photoshop and the graph converter of Osdk)
Font caracters is ol at 90%
Game a 1%

Thanks a lot.
It's the first time i'm so advanced in graphs. i hope i'll succeed in coding the game. My objective is to make a demo within next ceo-mag (not so late to maintain my motivation) and on defence force forum also of course
