No problem at all, I definitely appreciate the help, I will check it out as soon as I have some time available.

Hi, I need a little help editing DiskSpan Gui to include PMT to precomp/razor. I was able to get it to compress but always get a decompression error.
Razor mtx is included with the base DiskSpan Gui, but I always get a decompression error with using that and I am not sure if Precomp mtx also have that problem too. Thanks.

Can I get a tutorial or example on how to use split mode and masks effectively on DiskSpan GUI?

DiskSpan GUI v2.0.0.9

Updated DiskSpan GUI to v2.0.0.9 in the first post.
Special thanks to @KaktoR for all the work testing compressions and creating the DiskSpan GUI database settings.
Code:
Changes:
- Updated XTool plugin Unreal Engine (R6)
- Updated XTool plugin EA Frostbite Engine (R7)
- Updated QuickBMS to XTool from v0.3.1 to v0.3.2
- Updated XTool precompressor from v0.4.2 to v0.4.8
- Updated key list for Unreal Engine games (with some news keys).
- Updated database maker "Unreal Engine ucas Database maker (R4)".
- Updated DiskSpan GUI database to version 1.0.4.1 (Thanks to KaktoR).
- Updated compressor/decompressor "ZStandard" (ZSTD) from v1.5.1 to v1.5.2
- Added some XTool Bms2xtl (QuickBMS) plugins for some others games.
- Added external file DSG_External.ini to include methods without having to change DSG_Methods.ini file.
- Added XMemCompress (R2), LZ4X (R1) and Crilayla (R1) tools to work together with Bms2xtl (QuickBMS to XTool).
- Added new checkbox to enable copying DiskSpan GUI executable to first media folder if setup files do not exist.
- Added support for 3 new configuration keys in Database.ini, but the content of these keys can only be manually edited in Database.ini.
  >> The key content supports the same equivalent commands supported in DSG_Methods.ini but cannot use the {compressor} and {parametter} constants, the new supported keys below:
  >> Data#.Backup#=<create backup of compressors library before compression, the file is restored after compression>
  >> Data#.CopyLib#=<copy library to compressor folder before compression, the file is delete after compression>
  >> Data#.Decomp#=<include library to creation of the Setup DLL file>
- Fixed some bugs found.

Use this srep version
https://fileforums.com/showpost.php?...postcount=2927

replace srep.exe in "Resources\OTHERS\SREP" and try again.

If you follow the quotes you will find out that I had the same error and with provided srep version it worked.

Use these parameters for srep (just copy&paste)
Code:
:m3f:a16:d1g

I have a question about unpacking.
When my compression of Cyberdimension Neptunia Four Goddess Online was successful and I tried the unpacking option right after merging the ini, this happened:

All OK

I compared the size of the two files and it is smaller so I thought there was a problem with the compression. I tried unpacking with the dsg.exe and the unpacking was sucessful. Those gibberish words didn't show up and the files size were similar.

There's a bug in FreeArc which redirects output from STDIO tools to console window. What you are seeing isn't gibberish, but actual data.
