3 Way Compression, Masked Compression

Okay, It's Been a long Time Since i made something for the forum

This Tool set features :

1) FA Next implementation to Inno
2) Eugene Shelwien's 7Zip implementation to Inno
3) Updated Arc with more tools, i removed obsolete Tools.
4) Masks Took a significant Update
5) Added Masks on FA Next and 7zip
6) I rewrote the manual to give directions and basics in depth

This Toolset isn't optimal for amount of ram this forum is far mature now to give you ram optimals for each spec - Trial will be your father and Error will be your mother.

7) Inno has been updated to host the new stuff
8) Added Patch_Mod support via xDelta3 and a Secondbar


FAQ:
Q: Will there be a WPI Inno ??
A: Maybe if you want it, why not.

Q: How to use this effectively?
A: Data Analysis is the key, whether you like or not !! checking what you deal with will save loads of trouble.

Q: Some Compressor failed, What do i do ??
A: I am not responsible for the compressors themselves, i didnt write their codes. Therefore i am not to be blamed for their Malfunction. I am not responsible for your Data loss. Though i will check if you send me a Pic of the problem

Q: Will you update this ?? will you Add more to it ??
A: I plan to support it a bit, and i also plan to give a huge pack of toolset, how to transcode via ffmpeg in parallel and how to manipulate xdelta to get your job done.
e.g. if you unpack a total war pack file and then pack it with 7zip tar codec you can xdelta it and get small difference like 1 or 4 KILOBYTES.

Q: Have you Kept tools from us again??
A: The only tools i have kept from this are: Razor with stdio support which Razor made for me and Reflate which me and Razor made back in 2016!
Nothing else

Your updates are always a great resource, even if some methods have already been developed in your latest work.
Momentarily I abandoned the development and the study on FAN, also being a better compressor in all its points of view, due to the absence of the "-ep/1/2/3" mode for the complete control of the path. Very uncomfortable situation for exctraction of created archives of application or game. Too bad that our Bulat has not given any option, information or explanation about it, to remedy the problem.

Thanks for the update! Before packing, files are not analyzed for the most efficient compression, but are taken from the list of arc.groups?

where to get the Scanner Zee, which you mention in the manual?

I have added the data analysis tool by my dearest friend Razor12911.

Felice its all about options and handle, if you think you can handle the "new" Fa Next then go ahead, but you will say Arc is damn cool and people are used to work with it, right ???
yeah it has many additions that Fa Next lacks at the moment.

My point of view is vast more differential, if you guys don't start using the Next Gen 3 years after release, there is still not an inno that uses FA Next, then how can we motivate Bulat to update this tool ?, how can even hope to see the new srep V5 ?? how can we see FA 0.20 ??

Arc is so complete that devoures the rest of them all, But here i am 20hours++ having 10 manuals to make it as simple as it gets, people must start to go ahead.

The FAN, is my opinion, was born castrated, the concept of a new compressor had to be to get the same FA options with something more and not less. How can this be possible to develop something new in applications or in ISS, if is no the elementary basis and the most common options in FAN.
The situation is as follows, FA'Next 0.11 has stopped since 08/10/2016, there has been no more updates from Bulat, if he does not update his work, none of us here will be able to developing something new with FAN, I think the concept was clear, I think we have publicized it enough with your work and my applications, but I don't think we can go any further. Now it's up to Bulat Ziganshin.
I hope you read this post, and convince yourself in a future update for the FAN project, and for all its Fans.

I think you forgot the word 'not'

thanks for pointing this out Last this i want is people pointing fingers to me for data loss :P hahahaha

Enjoy Grumps.


To Felice,

What i want Felice is to motivate maybe a developer who was lost somewhere.

But i will say it right here, with or without Bulat Compression will go on.

We can't stay with Arc forever, this is why i decided to also include Mr Shelwien's Stuff.

My long Plan is to basically remove Arc slowly and painfully from my toolset.
i will keep FAN since its a bit Newer.

i just bought 3 HDD 8TB for total 450$
started to convert all of my games to srep+zstd, super fast decompression...

That's one point of view. For some people to try to push the limits of compression ratio is not a waste in any sense, is a reward of some sort.

If you specify the path to the folder with the game, the script will check the files before compression for the best result?

This tool is going to Next Gen for the best method and powerful. Which means the Arc and FA that we need to see update at newer version or else... For me to get some different something that we could use just like that.
