Here I used srep+pzlib+srep+lzma for zlib because there are many same img files in complete edition, and using srep before pzlib significantly reduces compression time.

Game Size: 30.9GB(approx)

Someone who uses is recognizing the potential of masked methods.
Have you tried to use nanozip or razor compressors in the "void" mask? Or in your case "/$bik".

I use my own masks dude. Razor and nanozip compressors are too slow while compressing, so I do not use them. But you may get about 14.x gb or less by razor I think.

OK, But did you test the compression time on the 30 gb sample, with your method, and with the use of nz or rz?

This is interesting, I thought "dedup" methods are for this purpose? Also, how come this does not disturb data and headers making pzlib not applicable?

This doesn't makes pzlib non-applicable, try yourself Take two same zlibbed file with different names, use srep+pzlib, you will see.

Max Payne 3 The Complete Edition:
From 32.47 GB ->> 16.4 GB

Used Method:
For zlib files: pZLib+Srep+delta+lzma
Parameter: pzlib+srep:m3f:l256+delta+lzma:512mb:normal:bt4:27 3:mc1000:lc8
For audio files: msc(tak)+Srep+delta+lzma
Parameter: msc+srep:m3f:l256+delta+lzma:512mb:normal:bt4:27 3:mc1000:lc8
For video files: delta+lzma
Parameter: delta+lzma:512mb:normal:bt4:27 3:mc1000:lc8

Took a lot of time to process srep, because my RAM is 8 GB.

The latest version of pZLib is used with latest reflate libs.

Note: If you increase the RAM usage of LZMA the ratio will be better, but it will take more ram to compress & decompress also.... But decompression speed will increase.
For example: in this parameter "lzma:512mb:normal:bt4:27 3:mc1000:lc8" the RAM usage is 512 MB (at decompression) & it will take 5384 MB (approx) RAM to compress.

What about creating an index for this thread at the first post?

I don't think mods would update a third index, it'a alot of work.

Maybe someone (you?) could get ownership of first post and update it from time to time.

I think putting games and their methods here is a terrible idea because there are so many of them, the wise solution to this is narrowing down the field, game engines for example or picking games as a series. for example, all Assassins Creed games are lzo compressed, use the method plzo+srep+lzma for all, because listing all the AC series just makes the thread difficult to read or the index you're suggesting.
For example I already see GTAIV and Max Payne 3, next we'll probably see GTAV, what we could have said all in all is pzlib+srep+lzma for all games that use the RAGE Engine which is what they use.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rockst...ed_Game_Engine
there is the list of games, what people could do is
put an engine with the link on a site like wikipedia that has list of games then put the method that should be used.

Most of major Ubisoft games: -plzo(+pzlib)+srep+lzma
Most of major past EA games: -plz4(+pzlib)+srep+lzma
Most of major recent EA games: -pzstd(+pzlib)+srep+lzma

Or I will simplify it further:
Almost-everything-out-there: -ztool(x2)+srep+lzma

Case closed

Yeah, I agree with you, but there are some games which use same engine but same methods couldn't be applied on them.
For Example: Crysis 2 & Crysis 3 use same engine, which is Cry Engine 3 but pZLib can precompress Crysis 2 & for Crysis 3, the files are encrypted. So they must be decrypeted first before using any compression.
I know this is not a good example but it occurs sometimes.
