7zip standalone unpacker.
First compress your game with 7zip and give a name mygame.7z
In 7zip installation folder you have 7z.sfx rename the file with the same name of your file mygame.exe now put the 7z and exe files in a new foler together and run mygame.exe and the installation will start to unpack mygame.7z. Also works with multi volume.
Mygame.7z.000
mygame.7z.001
and go on....
The thing is the files 7z and exe need to have the same name to work.

Lightbulb Advanced Tiny Game Repacking

Gozarck i absolutely love your work, with that said i present you my Advanced version of the tools

Masks, Precomp, Srep and MSC support all are included i hope you enjoy using as much as i enjoyed it when i found how it works




~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

1)Choose you Program or Game make sure it is small to begin with
: Tiny Tools cannot support large number of Files

2) Put it inside Tiny_SFX_Compressor.bat and choose whatever compression method you want
: As I said all works Including Precomp, you can leave it as is its very Optimal

3) Run the bat and wait for magic

4) after you have the data.bin run make sfx.bat

5) the exe that is produced is ready to work without anything it will automatically Unpack whatever method i have provided so far

6) This tool is provided as is, it worked for me and i gladly share, further than that i cant guarantee that it work for you!!!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Very nice panker thank you my friend for share your work this is very useful.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------

This is old SF2FL.bat (Split Folder 2 File List) is buggy but works for test.
its like "freearc tactical split" by Razor12911 in batch.
this idea still buggy and I never finished.
If anyone want to test or fix. plase feel free to do it.
---
only for test use 300mb folder size
1_ run sf2fl.bat and paste the root
split folder by list 100mb per folder.
2_run copy bat
generate folder_1,2,3 and 100mb size per folder(more ror less)

check the bat file for more info.

Hello TsubasaHP
Quote:
Data folder:

-dat_01.bin (your compressed file)
-Data.dll (config file for "PI.sfx")
-FA.sfx (Freearc.sfx with "CLS-srep.dll" inside for method -msrep+lzma)
-PI.sfx (portable installer)
-UA.sfx (UltraArc.sfx)
-records.ini (Config file for UA)
--dat_01.bin its your data compressed
If you use PI.sfx then set the output in Data.dll
If you use UltraArc.sfx then set the output in records.ini (Config file for UA)

Please help! Make my custom repacks the very old MSTS game. The game contain huge 2+ GB's WAV-files. Its files compressed with the tools, via switches: arc a -lc1024 -ld1024 -ep1 -ed -r -w.\ datax.bin -mmsc+rep:256m "Data\*"

Modified arc.ini:
Code:
[External compressor:srep]
header = 0
packcmd   = srep -m5f -l64 $$arcdatafile$$.tmp $$arcpackedfile$$.tmp

[External compressor:msc]
header = 0
packcmd = MSC c -v -f -t0 -wav=1 -raw=2 -bmp=1 -ddsraw=1 -ddsdxt=1 -mp3=1 -bmf=9s -tak=9 -dxt=2  $$arcdatafile$$.tmp $$arcpackedfile$$.tmp

[External compressor:precomp]
header = 0
packcmd   = precomp -slow -t-j -o$$arcpackedfile$$.tmp  $$arcdatafile$$.tmp
unpackcmd = precomp -o$$arcdatafile$$.tmp -r $$arcpackedfile$$.tmp
and SREP-exe file replaced to v3.92b versions from get UA2.9.0.0R6 Tools.

Created *.bin file converted to *.exe its works. File decompressions its works via Win XP SP3 and Win7 SP1 x64 systems. Win10 Home x64 don't works. SFX programs, perfectly extracted these *.wav files and CRC-hashes its OK!

Win XP: https://i.kek.sh/WTvTk7URNyr.jpg https://i.kek.sh/9w86H9yR8Oh.jpg https://i.kek.sh/zdvkhVkcdJU.jpg

Win7 SP1 x64: https://i.kek.sh/k9f20KfoF2T.jpg

and get error from Win10 Home x64:


Please help to found fixing idea. Run as Admin mode, not works. Run as Win XP SP3 compatibility mode, don't work. Mixed methods, don't works. Run EXE file, without any files located in execution dirs, dont works. Copy any external exe/dll files and arc/cls.ini from any combination, dont works.
