Yes, it works but don't know if peterf1999 forgot to say that but for me it works because i deleted
all foreign language's files (except files of my language) in the base folder. For example, this is my base folder:



If i didn't do that, the game doesn't fit in a DVD5.

i don't know how to use precomp.

thats why i created a .bat
Quote:
precomp038 -slow -c689 -m68 -opak000.sdpk2 "pak000.sdpk2"
and paste the precomp file with .bat in the "\Brink\base" folder it is working but i'm only overwriting my pak000.sdpk2

my question is it is ok if i'll add .pcf as extension to get the pak000.sdpk2.pcf output?

Yes, you are right. The right command should be:
Code:
precomp038 -slow -c689 -m68 -opak000.sdpk2.pcf "c:\program files\Brink\base\pak000.sdpk2"
But anyway, if you overwritten original pak000.sdpk2 (with peterf's command) and precomp did the job correctly then you just need to change the extension by adding ".pcf" to your pak000.sdpk2 (precompressed).
So your precompressed pak000.sdpk2 become pak000.sdpk2.pcf!

you DONT need to add the pcf as extension.

to use precomp correctly.. extract the files from the Precomp.7z into its own folder
make a text file input this into it

Code:
precomp038 -slow -c689 -m68 -opak000.sdpk2 "e:\program files\Brink\base\pak000.sdpk2"
rename the filename.txt to filename.bat ( edit it and CHANGE the path to match where your game is installed ) my path is e:\ ....

It worked perfectly, never had to delete anything.. it created the Brink.arc ( 2.33GB ) DVD5 size is 4.25GB.

Sorry pakrat2k2 but for me it didn't work because precomp created a pcf file called "pak000.sdpk".
It MAYBE could works if you change the name of the file also in the arc command because original from peterf is:
arc a -mx -ld800mb Brink pak000.sdpk2.pcf

the reason it didnt work for you, is if your installed game folder isnt "c:\program files\Brink\base\pak000.sdpk2" then precomp cant find the file. ALSO you DONT extract the files from the precomp.7z into your base folder, thats why its overwriting the file & you have to add the extension.

never had to delete all foriegn language files either, it compressed down to 2.33GB WITH the files there.

Fail to get the output "pak000.sdpk2.pcf"



Do you have another way to use precomp?

---------------------------------------------------------
Problem Solved.
i use this batch file run.rar
Code:
precomp038 -slow -c689 -m68 -opak000.sdpk2 "D:\Program Files (x86)\Bethesda Softworks\Brink\base\pak000.sdpk2"
in precomp folder i get the output named "pak000.sdpk2" which is 4,891,220 KB

then i rename the file and add the ".pcf" extension, now i have "pak000.sdpk2.pcf" in precomp folder.

compress it with arc and named it Brink.arc
Brink.arc Size is 2,337,361 KB which is fine.

now a have 4.13GB

Thank you peterf1999 for the conversion.

Do you think i'm so stupid?
I changed the path obviously and i wrote how to do because i got this case and as you can see with other people there is something wrong. I'm trying to help people with my same problem and, since I resolved it, I can afford to help them.

I tested it with MULTI7 version and i can tell you that DVD5 is impossible without delete foreign languages.

And, finally, i extract precomp in the DVD5 folder and not in the base folder as you wrote. Since peterf use -o parameter, you force precomp to use this name for the output file ("pak000.sdpk2") and not the precomp default ("pak000.sdpk2.pcf")

no i dont think anyone is stupid for asking questions, easiest way to clarify something. It's a shame that the original poster doesnt provide MORE information then just very basic instruction set. Needs to provide more detailed instructions, so that all the questions that seem to come up is because of lack of information.

Looked thru base folder and deleting all foriegn lang files amounted to ~1.5mb, not much difference in size there. (Maybe you have different version ?)

This guide is no longer relevant if you have installed any of the MANY MANY patches the game need to actually run . As my Brink_DVD5 folder was 7.6Gig AFTER doing this and deleting pak000.sdpk2
