Well well at this point, you all happy, it's OK for all, a detailed post, especially in this thread is something easy to understand and easy to interpret, especially for the "newbie". Mine was just a clarification.

At this point in the future post saving time, instead of structuring it this way :

Quote:
FARCRY 5

Inside 2 Language (English/Italian)

Mthd = (ZTool+srep64+Lzma2)

plzo:c64m:t4:st50p:ct4:b128kb+srep64:m5f:a2:d1g+lz ma2:d512m:fb=273:mf=bt4:mc=100000000:lc=4:lp=0

IN = 29.4 GB

Splitted in 3 Archive :

1) FC5_1.bin = 8,21 GB

2) FC5_2.bin = 9,64 GB

3) FC5_3.bin = 5,27 GB

Tot OUT = 23.1 GB

Tot Ratio = 78.5%

Time/Comp = 4h:20min
I structure it this way :

Quote:
FARCRY 5

Method = (ZTool+srep64+Lzma2)
I think it's more than enough for you all ...

the tools are public, 50 mb of mixed files and with an available hour you will see that all users find the best parameters .. I do not understand why they spam so

There is no inflate, but I'm used to testing individual groups of files, before compressing an entire game, and the method indicated is the one that most satisfied me in Time/Comp-Ratio, the result you can read of the size of the output archive.
Furthermore, the compression was splitted into 3 archives, if I had created a single archive, the compression ratio would have been even lower.
btw @dodo stay always on Wednesday in the middle of the week.

What? Any conversion with bink tools is lossy. And you've converted modern BINK2 videos to much older BINK1 format. Even having the same bitrate degraded the quality noticeably, trust me.

as far as i see i can see there is no noticable difference so...
then again i did not do it to reduce quality i did so to prevent crashes with bpk..
as far as the debate anyone can try it and judge for themselves

Yeah, im doing the same on all games where bk2 videos wont work with bpk. If you do it in good way there is no visible quality loss but its still lossy. Also its good to check if all bk2 videos are having trouble with bpk because on some games like AC Unity, only 1 video has problems with it, so there is really no need to recompress them all.
