Good to know, I need these tested.

Test #1

* I want to know whether xtool performs give better output. (better output size is irrelevant, compress the output files individually and check which one was compressed better)
*For speed comparison, run tests on ramdisk or SSD

Games/Files to test on:
Video files (they may freeze xtool which is what I want)
DOOM 2016
Dishonored 2
And all other zlib games where pzlib failed to process

Post results like (Include times if you ran on ramdisk):
Xtool: 825GB > 1.69GB (Gave better output) took 12.592s
Ztool197: 825GB > 1.24GB (Gave better output) took 12.592s
Ztool198: 825GB > 1.24GB (Gave better output) took 12.592s

Don't change the parameters of ztool, they are made to match xtool

Test #2

* For this test, I want to see if the memory improvements worked, so just simply post the entire cmd output of the test you have run
* This test must be run on ramdisk or ssd

Games\Files to test on:
Anything that does not have deflate/zlib streams (e.g. Video files)

Thanks, so. The issue of not being able to detect DH2 streams under normal scan is fixed.
And data loader uses less memory.

Test 3

What is required here is running test on data with deflate/zlib streams by replacing zlibwapi.dll with different other zlib dlls that you can find, submit the dlls that do not work.

zlibwapi.dll
zlib1.dll
zlib.dll

are the dlls to look for to see whether xtool can handle all and at least give inflation.
N.B. exe is x86, so get x86 dll and not x64
