@bolek932, This other tool does not use CLS-DiskSpan.dll.
Try running DiskSpan_GUI in configuration mode and checking the option "UltraARC Mode" (for testing only) and click on the SAVE and then CLOSE buttons.
Try to compress and see if the progress will pass the percentage that previously froze.

now I tried your tip.
i used xtool2020, 1.2% passed.

Why does xtool work with the tool I showed above and not with yours?

The UltraARC tool does not use the CLS-DiskSpan.dll library (maybe that's why).
If you do the above test and it works it is really that.
If so, I don't know why it is only in this game.

What version of The Sims 4 are you trying to compress? The last version?

---------------------
your tools run with xtol2020 instead xtool, passed magic 1.2%
Are you wondering why?

Old Xtool get stuck with the new game version (I don't know why, maybe they changes files a bit), that's why you have to use new version with xtool_reflate codec.

I tested it just yesterday.

I changed xtool on xtool2020 and it works. I have a repack.

Lolz is a better method than lzma But slower?

In my tests it was always 4x4:lzma, but depends much in input data of course (same for lolz or any other compressor).

Yes you can use 4x4:lzma. But you can also use lolz or some other.

Make a simple test with a sample file from that game (a file with about 500mb should do it).

First go with xtool+srep+4x4:lzma
Second go with xtool+srep+lolz

Both methods with the same file. Then look at ratio and speed and you can do a bit math more or less (extrapolation).

I did that for another game. but I assumed that it is not profitable. lolz is slow and the size wasn't much smaller. I prefer a 2gb larger repack but an hour faster.

First of all thank you Cesar82 for integrating this installer with DiskSpan_GUI!

But looks like there's a bug in installer. Installer freezes when trying to cancel installation. Used method xzlib+srep_new+4x4:b128mb:lzma:ultra:128m:bt4:fb27 3:lc8:mc1000000
Check the video I made.

Thanks for the info.
XTool is still running, so the installation does not cancel.
I'm going to run tests here and fix this.
I will soon share an updated version.
