because of these obscure bugs, I didn't continue with Delphi, especially ide is shit compared with other. You're still holding grounds nice work :)

Thank you very much If I can make a small comment, isn't resource string editing "overkill"? I mean, simple "-mzlib,reflate" syntax is all that is needed...(currently, only possible is, for example, -mzlib+reflate)

Anyway, thanks again,

Well I mostly evade the bugs by just sticking to WinAPI functions and a few times by using System functions but then with these I usually have to write custom code that do the same thing just that the one Delphi has is crap.

the problem is commas are used for something else

example -mzlib:l98,w15+kraken:l9:t128...

if we replace + with , then syntax will look like this -mzlib:l98,w15,kraken:l9,t128..
zlib will start considering everything as one of its parameters.

Edit:

This is what you need to change via Resource Hacker in xtool.exe

Update available

Changes

- updated search/config support

Notes

You can now use database files (*.xtl) posted in this thread to precompress games which the program does not have a native support for.

An example is Far Cry 5, the game is lz4 compressed and as there is no universal scanner for these streams, you can use a generated database to precompress the game.

Results on farcry5.dat:
Code:
Tested 1 file, 16,292,024,225 => 11,422,856,623 bytes. Ratio 142.63%
Testing time: cpu 11.25 sec/real 111.17 sec = 10%. Speed 102.75 mB/s

I understand now and I agree comma is not a good choice, but how about & or # sign?...I never asked for , specifically, it does not matter as long as it is not +

Anyway, it is just a suggestion, ResourceHacker editing is not a problem, changed to & and it is working great (it's even more logical to me with & sign) ...
Thank you very much for your work,regards

Greetings Razor

Does the Dunia codec support for Far Cry Primal?

I haven't seen any mention of it here or on the DELZOREC thread on krinkels.org.

I tried using DELZOREC on the HD Texture file, but it certainly didn't work (3GB file somehow unpacked to 1GB).

If anything needs testing, I can upload some small samples. If there's a way you could show me to see what kind of compression is already on the files, that would also be appreciated.

Yes, but being properly precompressed wil get an even smaller packed version, which is what I'm going for here.

I had totally forgotten about Primal, I'm only guessing when I say that I think it uses the same stuff that Watch Dogs 2 and Legion uses, so I think after I'm done with these, I'll check it out.

Update available

- fixed search/config support bug (thanks dixen)

But...If tested without SREP or LOLZ - ALL fine unpacked and XT20 process used about 300-400 mb RAM.
UPD. XT20(R5) + SREP = same bug

try unpacking with temps (disable cls/stdio), maybe we can see what is causing the problem.

Edit: I may need to make cls of xtool perhaps just to avoid issues.

20 gb data.arc - same bug.

OFF stdin/stdout - in progress

UPD

Quote:
[External compressor:xt20]
header = 0
unpackcmd = xtool decode -t100p --mem=75p --dedup=FC.bin $$arcpackedfile$$.tmp $$arcdatafile$$.tmp
With this parameters - same bug - xtool is closed on 2.5-2.7 gb RAM
R4 or R5 - no matter..
Offensively

could you try without deduplication, too many points where an error could occur.
