It's may be no-header WAV, but most likely just vorbis-streams

You can use bpk but throws out some errors. I will test out more intensive.
Note: Exclude "MOVIES.MEG, MOVIES_RA.MEG, MOVIES_TD.MEG" from bpk compression. It will give you errors.

LEGO Pirates Of The Carribean

In it's retail state (just like all other LEGO Games) this game is impossible to compress properly. In order to make a decent conversion, you first need to use QuickBMS on the DAT files to unpack them.

You can download QuickBMS here.

You will also need the TTGames BMS script which you can get here.

Drag the BMS script over the QuickBMS EXE file and select all the DAT files. I like to unpack to a separate folder then merge the files after unpacking, but it's perfectly fine to unpack to the game directory.

After unpacking, move or delete the DAT files since we no longer need them.

Test the game to make sure it still loads correctly, it will load from the raw asssets just like it would from the DAT files.

Total retail size: 7.42GB

Total size after being unpacked using QuickBMS: 12GB

Compress using the following method:
  • *.ogg
    Code:
    oggre
  • *.wav
    Code:
    msc:wav=1:tak=9+srep:a2:m5f:l512
  • Everything else:
    Code:
    srep:a2:m5f:l512+lolz:dt:dtb1:dtw1:dtm1:dto1:dtd1:mtt1:mt4:d64m:fba4096
Total packed size: 2.61GB

Thanks to darkwolves for the original conversion.

Note: Not much smaller compared to darkwolves conversion, but still fun to have a go.

Yet another piece of bloatware shit with at least 40% patch files just like KCD and some others...

Metro Exodus
1 Language

Code:
vfxrec+srep:m3f+4x4:b64mb:lzma:ultra:64m:bt4:fb273:lc8:mc1000000

13:08:09 - Starting Archive Creation. 
16:32:45 - Archive Creation Complete. 

Input Size: 75.04 GB. 
Output Size: 50.98 GB.
PS: At least content_07_sounds_XX.vfs0 and patch_02_sounds_uk.vfs0 contain ogg streams. Compress with oggre is easy, decompress is tricky.

Example for patch_02_sounds_uk.vfs0
Code:
Compressed 1 file, 638,939,169 => 522,221,038 bytes. Ratio 81.73%
Compression time: cpu 1.02 sec/real 220.64 sec = 0%. Speed 2.90 mB/s
All OK

Extracting 1 file, 638,939,169 bytes. Processed 100%
.....
....
..
Extracting just like forever, output is after 5 minutes over 10GB in size, so obviously broken.

Important note: Do not use the oo2core_6_win64.dll that comes with the game to precompress with oo2rec. Use oo2core_4_win64.dll + oo2ext_4_win64.dll that comes with poodle shared by panker1992 here. Otherwise precompression doesn't work.

These games get progressively more painful to compress (in order, 1, 2, 3, 4 - 4 is worst!).

You can use QuickBMS to unpack fbq archives but the game does not read from the raw files, and instead searches for the packed fbq. There's not a way I've found that can take an FBQ archive, unpack it, then rebuild.
