@BLACKFIRE69

MTX crashes on when decompressing on systems with strange numbers of cores/threads (e.g. 6c/6t and 6c/12t)

Are you able to fix this? (issues in both EXE and CLS versions)

I can only decompress with mtx if t100p is set in packcmd in arc.ini.

If I set t75p (or any other number other than 100) freearc can't decompress the archive.

Is this a bug or am I missing something?

Edit: encode and decode have to be equal. I missed it. If you used t100p in encode you have to use t100p in decode too. Sorry

BLACKFIRE69, you could remove the ":" from the parameters in your MTX.
Example, how can I send 4 threads (-t4) as a parameter from pack.bat. It is not allowed to send "t:4" because the ":" are already FreeArc parameter separators.

an equal or lesser value is also valid.
ex:
encode: 16 (Threads)
decode: 16, 8, 6, 4, 2, ...

if any user has entered an invalid value for the decoding threads, i'll improve MTX so that it can be corrected by MTX itself in a future update.
(since i'm a bit busy, give me some time for that )

in the meantime you can test out the beta version of new RazorX. i've used 50p for encoding and 100p for decoding. although this is usually invalid, it's automatically corrected by RazorX.

Code:
[External compressor:rzmt]
header = 0
packcmd   = RazorX.exe a -c:64m -t:50p $$arcdatafile$$.tmp $$arcpackedfile$$.tmp
unpackcmd = RazorX.exe x -t:100p - - <stdin> <stdout>
(read Important.txt before use)

For you to better understand what happened.
Me and KaktoR were doing tests with RAZOR MTX.

The configuration used was:
Code:
packcmd   = MTX.exe a -m:rz {option} -c:64m -t:100p - - <stdin> <stdout>
unpackcmd = MTX.exe x -m:rz {option} -t:100p - - <stdin> <stdout>
As his processor is 6/12 and my processor is 12/24
If it compressed and sent me the file I couldn't extract it because it would have been compressed using 12 threads and I would extract using 24 threads.
So if you make a game backup and upgrade the CPU to one with more threads, there will be an extraction error.
I know I could set it to t2 for extraction, but that loses the meaning of being multi threaded (use only 2 of 24).

The workaround is to set it to 100p use send thread number (get from system) as method parameter and when extract use {option} to set -t parameter.

Thanks for answering!

that won't happen in the next update of MTX. checkout the RazorX beta above,
the following config works without any problems.

Code:
[External compressor:rzmt]
header = 0
packcmd   = RazorX.exe a -c:64m -t:12 $$arcdatafile$$.tmp $$arcpackedfile$$.tmp
unpackcmd = RazorX.exe x -t:24 - - <stdin> <stdout>
OR

KaktoR can use it to encode as,
Code:
packcmd  = RazorX.exe a -c:64m -t:100p $$arcdatafile$$.tmp $$arcpackedfile$$.tmp
also, cesar you can use the same to decode, -t:100p
Code:
unpackcmd = RazorX.exe x -t:100p - - <stdin> <stdout>
