I think that something is wrong with your srep 3.9.2. On the last game you posted i couldnt test it myself because i dont have the game. But i have Killer Instinct and there is no problem with srep. Maybe you are using wrong cls for installing? On the script i use there are 2 srep versions, i almost use the older one because i had 0 errors but on some games (in special with forge files) if i use the newer one i get crc error. My cls-srep.dll for decompression has 86kb, (the new one is 17kb and have lot of problems with it).

The error occurs during compression and not during decompression. I tried with different options but I solved it only using the Srep v3.93.

Mine are just considerations and reports. Use them as a starting point for new tests in your repack.

I have KI packed already without problems on compress/decompress with srep 3.92. Thats why its strange. If it helps im using uarc 2900 with the included srep version 3.9.2. The only difference is that i use m3f and not m5f, maybe it has something to do with that.

Added XTool

It's faster and better ratio than ZTool :)

c128m is needed, otherwise you will get crc error on unpacking.

I will post results for HD Content soon

Dead or Alive 5: Last Round (v1.10c +73 DLC's)
 
Its packed only with srep+lolz because i didnt found any other way. Tested with only lzma (heavy settings) and lolz but with srep it works better (ratio and install times). I used d64 because the difference on some test files were less then 2mb and it was also faster.

Code:

Title:          Dead or Alive 5: Last Round
Version:        v1.10c +73 DLC's

PC:              4 Cores 3.9GHz (up to 4.3GHz) + 8GB Ram + SSD

Ripped Files:    Only replaced DirectX with webinstaller

Original Size:  12.5 GB
Compressed Size: 9.76 GB

Compress Time:  2 hours 55 minutes (10501.34 sec)
Install Time:    3-4 minutes

CRC Checked:    Yes

I had to start again with Dishonored - Death of the Outsider, should be ready
if everything is fine when i wake up.

Good night !!!

Dishonored: Death of the Outsider
 
Good morning, here is the third and last Dishonored game.

Code:

Title:          Dishonored: Death of the Outsider
Version:        v1.144.0.17

PC:              4 Cores 3.9GHz (up to 4.3GHz) + 8GB Ram + SSD

Ripped Files:    All foreign languages

Original Size:  31.4 GB
Compressed Size: 14.6 GB

Method:          binkpack on *.bk2 files
                pzlib:max:c256m+srep:m3f+lolz:d128:mc1023 on rest of files
                               
Compress Time:  8 hours 40 minutes (31207.52 sec)
Install Time:    10 minutes

CRC Checked:    Yes

Note:
Its important to use c256m on ZTool or it will give CRC error on installation.
You can also save up to 500mb if you delete the credits.bk2.

Like Dishonored 2 i had lot of issues, have tried it with XTool first on single files and it worked but when i packed the full game, Xtool has stopped after 4 hours.
I have to take a better look into this because im sure that on this two games we can get extra 500mb-1gb using xtool.

Updated and removed ZTool because in this case it takes much longer (+100%) and it has bigger output.
