for msrep:m5f:mem228mb:l256+4x4:b256mb:lzma:ultra:256m :a2:mfbt4:fb1024:mc100000:lc8 you need fazip with srep but you need large amount of memory for compression like 12gb, decompression ram 1gb (lzma) + srep...
you can find the tool in UltraARC page...

did you use cls.ini for srep setting and include cls-srep_x64 and cls-srep_x86 with the new cls-srep ?

I just cannot figure it out, lolz keep crashing but refer to cls-lolz even though I try to use packcmd exe only. The package does not come with cls.ini for lolz so I dont know what to put, I already tried search but found nothing clear on how this work. Can somebody tell me what exact content cls.ini should have to run lolz? Or even better, can I run exe for both packing and unpacking without cls(cause I hate it)? I dont see comp/decomp switches, only for detection...

arc.ini:
[External compressor:lolz]
header = 0
packcmd = lolz_x64.exe {options} $$arcdatafile$$.tmp $$arcpackedfile$$.tmp

cls.ini: ???

Files in FA\bin directory:
cls-lolz.dll, cls-lolz_x86.exe, cls-lolz_x64.exe, lolz_x64.exe

cmd:
arc a -mlolz FILE.arc FILE

Note when packing directly with lolz_x64.exe alone it works, but I dont think it can unpack without cls's. Also does anyone know if this thing support <stdio>?

Depends on the data, sometimes tt16 achieves a little more, and disabling and enabling dt modes as well.

Yes using latest 21a7.
I am able to get packing properly if I rename [lolz] section in arc.ini to say [lolz2]. But on unpacking or testing I get infinite read, temp file get rapidly created and deleted and test/decompression never ends, going into infinite.

If I dont rename [lolz] then already upon packing I get "(de)compression error"(with and without cls.ini). I tried same cls.ini as you and arc.ini as posted above, what else could I be possibly doing wrong?

EDIT: Ok I managed it to work without damn cls at least:
Code:
packcmd = lolz_x64.exe {options} $$arcdatafile$$.tmp $$arcpackedfile$$.tmp
unpackcmd = cls-lolz_x64.exe $$arcpackedfile$$.tmp $$arcdatafile$$.tmp
But if anybody have an idea why cls didnt work for me I will appreciate it. That said, I already tried it on few tests and it does look promising. I will update my "worthiness debate" thread soon with results for comparison. So far this seem like it could be worthy replacement of internal FA's LZMA, but tests come first.

I just tried oggre compressor on ogg file, 6% gain with almost instant cmp/decmp time. And bpk on bik file, over 20% gain, very reasonable speed. Bpk still give over 20% gain even on already recompressed bink to 1/3 resolution and lowered bitrate, so regardless of that. Tools are simply amazing.

You need to learn all from beginning. Start by reading my threads, I just did lolz comparison in one of my threads. There is more to that however, you need to learn how to (de)compile game packs for many cases, for others Razor's ztool is enough(you can find it in this forums). Fitgirl use custom variants of existing compressors etc. In other words, you need to stick around and read a lot - first.

By using recent lolz compressor from Profrager you can achieve same compression ratio as Fitgirl
