try lolz

For me lolz is too much time consuming. ztool+srep+lolz you go easy over 20 hours of compression (if not even more) just without HD/4K crap.

So you can a bit calculate if you use HD/4K too. 30 hours minimum.

Of course I used ztool on .earc files which work great there.

So I dont know... how the hell she could get it ~8gb smaller(taking into account for non-recoded bigger videos duplicates). I am trying xdelta right now but I dont see much benefit over srep. Its about deduplication both. Only other idea would be razor/lolz instead of lzma, but its hard for me to believe those would make such a big difference. Anyone?
Oh you know very less about lolz then. FG repack is 45.9 GB without credits.

pzlib+srep+lolz & bpk on bink = 45.5 GB which is still around 400 MB smaller than her repack.

So then lolz must pack it in this case almost 20% better than lzma. I usually seen around 8-10% gain against lzma in the past when I tried. Thanks for info I may give it another chance in future.

So I tried pzlib+srep+lolz and I got ~41gb. This is still not good I should not get more than ~36gb, I reduced ~12gb videos to ~1.6gb, even with bpk this is no match to my savings. zoroX can you post exact string you used for packing? My was:

custom5x/$gamelz=pzlib+srp64+lolz/$dds=srp64+lolz/$bink=proccmp -ma1 -s;

^where 99% of data go to $dds and $gamelz. $gamelz take care of .earc files and $dds include .heb files. .mab and .sab audio files are in $compressed = srep64+xtor:c3. Right now I am trying lolz without srep again but dont have high hopes.

btw lolz is: -mt4 -mtt1 -mtb128 -d128 -mc8 -tt1 -dtp0 -dto0 -dtd1 -dtm1 -dtw1 -dm00, this gave me at least 2x speed with basically no compression ratio worsening in my tests.

I used mask and got this error while installing: (win10x64- enough space- no AV - short address location "D:\test\FFXV")
I Should mention that I have manually done some splitting and joining on bin files to have faster installation and lower merging. I do this all the times but is it possible that this error would be the result of my work. maybe I did something wrong. I don't know.

Could be.

Is this the first file after merging the archive?

But it could also be error of pzlib3.

it's from the first bin file which is smaller than a DVD so it doesn't need to merge
and it for this file:
datas\level\dlc\multi\worldshare_multi\navimesh\wo rldshare_navimesh_splitter03_multi.earc

I put this bin file aside and check the others to see if this error still exist on other files. I'll report back

Edit: Another bin file extracted with no problem but I got this error on another one

Edit: I've Done the compression again and didn't changed anything, but I got that error again. Any suggestion?

Have started yesterday at 7pm, it still runs on last GB, so it's finished on aprox 15-20minutes (12pm).

Makes in total a conversiom time for about 17 hours with MASK (i've played 4 hours yesterday btw so the process slowed down a bit in this 4 hours), without any HD/4K content (+ those you can easy reach 20 hours compression i think).

All is done with Intel i5 @ 3.20GHz + 16GB RAM + normal HDD.

Used UltraARC again, this time with other pzlib3 settings + binkpack for video files. Will test installation in a moment. Tested some files with which gave errors (see pic from zirkhaki above for example), all are done without problems.

Installation time... i think mimimum 2 hours.

Nah, don't want to compress a whole day again. End of story: -12 crc error at 45%.

Use none compression, srep+lzma or whatever you want. I'm tired of that shit.

And then error of some other file

If you have fully tested it, share your compressor (diskspan) and i will share new setup.exe with needed decompressors
