unpackcmd = Res\Bcm -decompressor\bcm -d $$arcpackedfile$$.tmp $$arcdatafile$$.tmp

yup, of course .
those characters must be valid characters.


but this is wrong.
Code:
packcmd   = Res\Bcm compressor\bcm -9 $$arcdatafile$$.tmp $$arcpackedfile$$.tmp

for cls-mtx:

[External compressor:bcm]
header    = 0
packcmd   = Res\Bcm compressor\{compressor} -9 $$arcdatafile$$.tmp $$arcpackedfile$$.tmp

I understand what you said, but it would be useful to be able to use it as used in arc.ini for other compressors that do not use CLS-MTX.dll.

Currently in CIU it uses this configuration mode that allows the user to inform the command in more than one way.
Code:
[External compressor:rz,RZ,razor,RAZOR]
header    = 0
packcmd   = "RAZOR\RZ_x64" a -y -d {option} $stdio$ <stdin> <stdout>
unpackcmd = "RAZOR\RZ_x64" e -y $stdio$ <stdin> <stdout>
For 32-bit version the executables are "RZ_x86.exe"

If possible, it would be very useful to be able to configure this way (in the next update of CLS-MTX.dll).
It also needed to allow the use of compressors without the CLS-MTX, such as using for mtx: [External compressor: mtxrz, mtxrazor, mtx_razor, mtx_rz]
and for RAZOR norml to use [External compressor:rz,RZ,razor,RAZOR]
This same name variation would be used for other executables like mpzapi and perhaps some others.

@BLACKFIRE69

I have messaged you my setup, I copied the line from your SetIniString example but it does not work.

Maybe a second pair of eyes to look could really help.

It's on line 1950

@BLACKFIRE69

Thank you for the update, however a huge bug has been introduced. Nothing has changed in my arc.ini since I added the new version to my compressor:

Code:
Compressed 119 files, 13,245,186,961 => 1,672 bytes. Ratio 0.00%
Compression time: cpu 14.33 sec/real 483.57 sec = 3%. Speed 27.39 mB/s
All OK
Using method: mtx:c64m:t16:rz

The folder being compressed is ~700MB and sometimes it says all 700MB becomes 1kb, other times like the above it only recognises some of the data.

Yes with your compressor it works, but I did not change a single config between last time I used MTX and this time.

Perhaps I should fully remake my compressor and tidy things up? I'll get back to you after I try sort it.

Sorry for wasting your time...

Edit: I have mailed you an example compressor, I tried rewriting 3 times but it keeps returning <1KB files

ok, check my answer i solved your problem.

and guys, since v2.0.0.5, the keyword "{compressor}" is no longer supported on arc.ini. please see the example.

Update



What's new:
  • Bringing back "{compressor}".
    - Added support for "{compressor}" as before.



* cls-mtx supports two methods.

Code:
1: The simple way

[External compressor:precomp, mtxprecomp, mtx_precomp]
header    = 0
packcmd   = "Res\Precomp\precomp.exe" -cn -intense0 -o$$arcpackedfile$$.tmp $$arcdatafile$$.tmp
unpackcmd = "Res\Precomp\precomp.exe" -r -o$$arcdatafile$$.tmp $$arcpackedfile$$.tmp

Code:
2: Alternative method

[External compressor:precomp, mtxprecomp, mtx_precomp]
header    = 0
packcmd   = "Res\Precomp\{compressor}" -cn -intense0 -o$$arcpackedfile$$.tmp $$arcdatafile$$.tmp
unpackcmd = "Res\Precomp\{compressor}" -r -o$$arcdatafile$$.tmp $$arcpackedfile$$.tmp


and the exe name must be "precomp.exe" (similar to the first one in section names.)
