Arrow [Conversation] Best Steps to repack any Game

Thnx For any one who will take part in this topic , this is conversation not tut
I'm new in Compression although through many searches I can make a good repack for a game by this method
For Ex: Raise OF Tomp Raider
1- delet any Lang except English Files
2- I made 2 Folders

First one contain [Exe , Movies , Images] Files
So I can Use MSC+SREP+LZMA to repack it & if there is no Movies // MP3 Just use storing + SREP

Second One Contain Main Game files (Most of the game files which have the same extention like .[/SIZE][/FONT][FONT=Courier New][SIZE=4]tiger) & now i'm about to test over 40 different method of compression
so Basically take a small file From the game for ex:
bigfile.dlc.story.babayaga.000_ENGLISH.000.tiger (55mb)
then use any compressor like Panker Compresser
Make 40 different Method or more as you wish
then launch your test.bat
now compare the results & Choose the best one
Note :
* Of Course Nanozip will give you Better results but not always & also it's time to decompress is larger than the others
* precomp will not always give you the best results
=====================
So this is my way & if someone want to Share his ways or notes I will be happy
& Don't Forget to write Some of your best methods like precomp+srep+reflate .. etc

lzt is for text and don`t repeat the algo in the same command chain srep+lzt works fine.Also for text try to test bsc or xwrt.

Tomb Raider only needs a zlib recompressor, srep and lzma to get you 13-14GB

I think they are some of the best compressors to be used to backup of RoTTR.
The choice is purely subjective guys....
