Help Compressing DOA5LR !

Hi , I tried to compress this game but it seems I can't get it less than 8 GB
Dead or alive 5 last round + DLCs v1.4 [ Original Game + update 1.4 = 9.5 GB ]
No Zlib was detected so i thought srep+lzma will do something but only 8.18 GB
I'm using Srep with 1GB dictionary + XZ with 300MB dictionary
any ideas ?

Game resources are encrypted + compressed. So to compress it good you have to decrypt/uncompress them before. AFAIK there no good tools for rebuilding data for DOA (while you can extract most files), so...

For such cases I'd use ZSTD.

with the newest zstd version, there are around 19 levels, and additional 3 more levels, and i think you tested previous version or low level for compression and chunk size also matters

EDIT: You should try srep+zstd and zstd should be set at level 19, download the latest zstd from my attachment and use cmdinfo by felice for the info about the use of it

I tested level 19 However it took much time to complete a single 400 MB File & still srep+lzma better in ratio & speed

Winrar Max settings = 8.7 GB I think it's good compared to the time & ratio of others

why did u use msc ?? I it's useless it won't make any change to videos
also why dispack070 ?? I reached around 8.18 GB with only srep+Lzma max / srep + xz with huge dictionary about 8.1 GB no need other tools , also msc didn't help me :\

MSC worked on .ink files on most files and total compression of the whole game took only ~2 hours for me. Not bad I think. And Installation took ~6 min or less if nothing run anything on pc .

I need to know, how to compress only list files written in text file .
So the compression will be there only selected files written in text file.
Like this method :
arc a -di -i1 -ep1 -ed -r -w. \ [email protected] outputfile.bin -mmethod "input\*"
correct me and please tell me, Is there need to write the full path or only install path of folder have to write in text file ?
