Anything below version 1.2.11.0 doesn't work on my test file, it gives 0 bytes. It only happens if i change original name to "zlibwapi", strange enough xtool works without zlibwapi.dll.

Thanks for the test, xtool can work without zlibwapi, but only if zlib1.dll or zlib.dll is detected elsewhere and since Freearc registers dlls when it installs, probably it used the one in FA's directory.

Hmm, interesting. Did you compress the file afterwards, both outputs of xtool and precomp to see which one did a good precompression job?

Same here, ran many tests and somehow precomp seems to find streams that I have no idea as to where it finds them but compression after the precompressed data tells the true story.

XTool+srep+lzma = 459mb = 1.06gb = 257mb
Precomp+srep+lzma = 459mb = 1.12gb = 239mb
Even after this I am damn impressed with XTool, its 10x faster compared to precomp, but the difference is about 16mb and it will be more if used on bigger files. Still ill ran some more tests. Also about Ztool it had the same issue while recompressing a zip file.

I want that 16mb, can you upload that file so I can see what's really going on.

Second to this Razor. Also, pdfs aren't properly detected either.

Very sorry bro, i wish i could but my internet speed sucks, it will take me 24 hours or more to upload it. This might help, I used offzip on it and the output size extracted was about 1.12gb, same as precomp output.

Cool, I think I know what the issue is then. Thanks for participating in tests.
Will roll out another test where perhaps this issue will be fixed then move onto lz4 codec.
