Question Unreal Engine 3/4 and lolzx Compressor

What is this compressor "lolzx"?
Is it available for public or it's just for personal use.
Because i'm seeing a very good compression ratio when used with Unreal Engine 3 or 4 games especially the textures.
Can you provide a detailed info about it please?
Thanks.

private compressor

The better ratio is due to the use of a precompressor (Pzlib)

LZMA is better

You can use Lzma Ultra settings, but you need 16 to 32 GB of RAM

Afaik, lolz is slower than lzma when compressing, but very fast when decompressing. It supersedes lzma by decompression speed and ratio.

Guys, this is a private compressor by Profager. He may gifted it to fitgirl, or may fitgirl bought it from Profager. But it's not a public compressor afaik.

Then how you knew it's slower? did you just read that somewhere or there some benchmark tests?
There is no single compressor on the internet can compress unreal engine games 3/4 in such ratio better than lolz with such a very good decompression speed.

Well actually you don't have to 'have' the compressor to know. I learned fron soneone I can trust. lolz has a better compression ratio, I appreciate that. But I don't like to wait hours and days to compress a gane

Sometimes it's worth the waiting, some games might end up with LZMA for 4.38 G.B and it's really sucks that you can't fir that game on a DVD5 just for those extra megabytes, and here comes the role of compressors like lolz to make a better ratio when needed.
I hope i can get my hands on it or something similar soon.

You can use paq8 to do that, if it's really worth waiting
