Some questions about games compressions

Hello guys
I am trying to compress some games but there are no different in size after compressing i used first freearc without compression after that i used precomp and finaly freearc with ultra compression but like i said it doesnt work
so i have some questions :
1-can someone give me all the compression methods who works on games ? because i just know these one and its not working too "-precomp+step+lzma:a1:mfbt4:d256m:fb128:mc1000:lc8"
2-is there a way to know the perfect compression method to a particular game ?
3-and what the use of arc.ini ?

In some games, precomp+srep+lzma is the best, sometimes pzlib/reflate+srep+lzma is best and in old games without zlib streams, -mx is the best compression. You should check the game with zlib checker, and if there are zlib streams, consider compressing with precomp or pzlib. And if there are no/very few zlib streams, you can compress with mx. Sometimes mx can be replaced by srep+lzma

1. There are many, precomp/pzlib/reflate+srep+delta(optional)+exe(optional)+lzma/nanozip/or anything batter

2. No, sometimes srep+delta(optional)+lzma works batter, and if there are many zlib streams, you can check with zlib stream cheaker, use precomp/pzlib/reflate+delta(optional)+lzma/nanozip/anything batter.

3. Arc.ini is used for defining pack commend and unpack commend of diffrent methods, and yes,you can use it to add new methods, but when adding, make sure you have the cls dll for that compressor, some dont need any.

Hope all that helped you.
