Best Compression Methods for 'Specific' Games. Q&A
 
Hello guys, I have seen there are a lot of threads by some of you asking for best compression methods for 'specific' games.
So lets prevent spamming the forum with those threads and keep all of the questions and answers in one place, it will be easier for everyone.

So please share your best compression methods here for specific games, or if you want to know what is the best compression for a particular game please ask here.

Thank you!

An INDEX for the games discussed in this thread can be found HERE

Well for Mad Max, I`ve got the best results using pZlib+srep+lzma
Havent tested them yet but for Rise of the Tomb Raider and Hellblade-pZlib+srep+lzma too. Someone pls correct me if I am wrong with the better compression methods.

Hellblade Senuas Sacrifice
pzlib+srep+lzma = 8,28GB

Update:
*.pak => pzlib:m2:st50p:t4:c32m:rx:x+srep+lzma
*.bik => bpk
*.* => srep+lzma

7.66GB


---------------------------------
Mad Max
*.arc
xtool:c32m,t4:zlib+srep+lzma = 3.87GB

*.*
srep+lzma2 = 89MB

= total of 3.96GB

For example:
[code][External compressor:pzlib]
header = 0
packcmd = _Compressors\pZLib e {options} -c32m -t25p - -o - $$arcdatafile$$.tmp -o - <stdout>
unpackcmd = _Compressors\pZLib d {options} -t100p - -o - <stdin> <stdout>

[External compressor:srep]
header = 0
packcmd = _Compressors\srep64 {options} -m5f $$arcdatafile$$.tmp $$arcpackedfile$$.tmp
unpackcmd = _Compressors\srep {options} -d -s - - <stdin> <stdout>[code]

Just a hint, if you select no smilies in text, under misc options, then you wont have them showing up where you don't want them, especially in posts like this one. >pakrat2k2

You can chain ztool for games like Ghost Recon Wildlands that use both lzo and some zlib streams, like this for example:

[External compressor:pzlib,plz4,plzo,pzstd]
header = 0
packcmd = ZTool e:{compressor}{:option} - - <stdin> <stdout>
unpackcmd = ZTool d:{compressor}{:option} - - <stdin> <stdout>

-m5 -mc-delta -mc:rep/srep64:m5f:mem2gb:s128gb:l1k -mc$default,$precomp,$obj:+plzo+pzlib
"

In the above we first pass it through lzo precompress filter and then to pzlib. Pzlib filter will also look into data that was precompressed from lzo as well as outside it. If data inside lzo's were also zlibed those will be additionally processed.
Btw for srep you absolutely have to use "s" option if you pipe its input:

[External compressor:srep64]
packcmd = srep64avx2 {options} - - <stdin> <stdout>
unpackcmd = srep64avx2 -d {options} - - <stdin> <stdout>

^then you save space and time as data are streamed directly: ztool:plzo=>ztool=>pzlib=>srep but you have to use "s" option and you have to take into account preprocessed size after ztool!

Another game where you can chain ztool is Mirror's Edge Catalyst, there you chain plz4=>pzlib.

pzstd only works on Mass Effect Andromeda

I dont know why people who lack basic navigation skills, thinking, orientation and computer knowledge try to dwell into such difficult subjects as advanced (pre)compression. Whats next, guy trying to code its own precompressor asking how to use compiler/Windows?

KaktoR 26-09-2017 06:29

^Exactly this!

This was mentioned 1000 times before in this forum. From now on just ignore :)

GTA IV: The Complete Edition

Masks:
$zlib
*.img
$bik
*bik

Method: srep+lzma/$zlib=srep+pzlib+srep+lzma/$bik=srep


Here I used srep+pzlib+srep+lzma for zlib because there are many same img files in complete edition, and using srep before pzlib significantly reduces compression time.

Game Size: 30.9GB(approx)
Final Size: 16.4GB(approx)
