Seems like tpac files use lz4hc level 12. On this level you will get low streams but output is much bigger then with other levels.

Code:
Compressed 1 file, 7,120,255 => 14,068,315 bytes. Ratio 197.58%
Compression time: cpu 0.00 sec/real 30.88 sec = 0%. Speed 0.23 mB/s
All OK
However it is slow af

LAST MINUTE EDIT: Just realized you're talking about using xtool's srep functionality, so not sure if this is useful at all

I use the following settings in my "CLS.ini" file, I do use the CLS version of Srep for decompression so not sure if that would have any impact if you're using a non-CLS package.

Code:
[Srep]
Bufsize=24m
transfer_ReadBufSize=512k
transfer_WriteBufSize=512k
Memory=60%-2048m
TempPath={app}

[Srep_new]
Bufsize=24m
transfer_ReadBufSize=512k
transfer_WriteBufSize=512k
Memory=60%-2048m
TempPath={app}

You can patch out the bink videos with XTool erase and squeeze the size down with bpk too

thank you, do you know how to make the game install process not take long.
I have compressed the gta 5 game using the method that is in the database but during install (unpack) it takes very long around 5-7 hours

Data1b:
halo1\prebuild\shaders_2_cache\prebuild\*.sdc
halo2\prebuild\shaders_2_cache\prebuild\*.sdc
halo2\preload\paks\*.pck
halo2\h2_maps_win64_dx11\*.map

halo3\maps\*.map
halo3odst\maps\*.map
halo4\maps\*.map
haloreach\maps\*.map
mcc\Content\Paks\*.pak
data\ui\Screens\*.gfx
With reflate you will get a crc error on "MCC-WindowsNoEditor.pak" file. Seems there are lz4 streams too but couldn't process any of them properly (also look in "Data\ui\texturepacks" folder). With old xtool the output is same as reflate option (~1gb smaller) but I prefer speed

128mb chunk size is the sweet spot here. However you will get some additional mb on 256mb.

bpk output is 22.5 GB, with srep 21.5 GB (many video stream duplicates).

Crisis Core - Final Fantasy VII - Reunion

pak/ucas -> kraken
Use oo2core v2.9.6

Edit: Ok seems like zlib/reflate is in there too. What a weird mess I made, sorry

Code:
pakchunk0-WindowsNoEditor.pak

156mb -> 175mb (kraken) -> 199mb (reflate)
Edit 2:
pakchunk1-WindowsNoEditor.pak has no kraken streams, but only reflate.

Edit 3:
pakchunk5-WindowsNoEditor.pak, pakchunk6-WindowsNoEditor.pak -> seems like only usm video
pakchunk4-WindowsNoEditor.pak -> sounds

Crisis Core - Final Fantasy VII - Reunion UCAS contains encrypted Kraken streams but the UnrealDB creator does not work for this game and requires an update.
