Also real quick question with using Delta/xDelta3, I'm assuming to use this tool we need to build it from the github repo? Using tiny compressor and can't seem to find a .exe for it in DiskSpan's resources, only a .dll for installers. If anyone could help me figure out how to use this tool I'd be eternally grateful.

As far as I can tell its just the files in the "cookedpc" folder that are refusing to work with me. any help would be greatly appreciated.
i used uelr+srep+lzma2
but you gotta seperate the unreal engine files from the other files or it will corrupt
bpk for videos and srep +lzma for the remaining files
wich left me with 3 data files

below is a list i posted long ago regarding arkham games series

Was able to get it down to 3.85gb using another method (just takes about an hour to install unfortunately), turns out I wasn't specifying uelr to unpack/decode the archives with LZO streams

Has anyone tried repacking the "Five Nights at Freddys" games? All games (bar the VR title) are packed into individual .exe's, I heard using the "Delta" compressor is good for binary stuff but with combinations of it, srep & lolz I'm only getting at best a 2% reduction in the final size.

Side Note :[LIST]
A small question i have, if i first precompress my game and then apply final compressor on the archive that was precompressed VS if i use all Precompressor + Compressor + Final Compressor at the same time. Will the results differ?

Side Note 2 : Question answered.

What do you mean?

If you precompress into an archive, then compress the archive, your result will be near identical but then if you want to install it will be rough and take a long time since the installer has to go through 2x archive extractions.

Also, always use srep after precompression before main compressor (lzma, lolz).

Yeah, i had a rough time decompressing 2x archives but the reason i asked this is because FIFA 20 is such a pain to precompress, such as XTool would use no CPU and oo2reck takes alot of time to combine with srep+lolz.

I managed a script for the 2x decompressing but still there isn't a perfect method for this FIFA 20.

Another question : Is it normal that lolz would give good ratio at the start but as the compression proceeds the ratio is again somewhere near 90%?

Here is the script if a newbie like me wants it.

Delete.bat

Code:
del /q data.arc
del /q data1.arc
del /q data2.arc
Put it in your script at the end like this.

Code:
[Run]
Filename: "{app}\Delete.bat"; Parameters: "/x"
Pack your .bat into an archive and have the installer decompress it as the last archive.

Hi all,

Could someone please show me what their header for "xprecomp" looks like in their arc.ini? I'm interested in repacking "Mad Max" (2015) and according to the "best compression index" xprecomp yields the best results, however I've never used xprecomp before and can't seem to find it as an argument when viewing the help section of xtool.exe in the windows command line. Thank you for any help anyone can offer.
