yes, use xtool_011, lz4 dll with xtool.exe otherwise it won't work. Keep in mind you can't just use xtool on them you need to put all lz4 dat files in to xtool.ini..

lz4 dat file means some dat files don't have any streams, like HD, so you have to check dat file one by one to get to know which dat files had the streams..

it didn't precompress anything although xtool.ini is filled properly and the path in basedir is correct.

This worked for me (change your language in xtool.ini (language inflate only to 103%))

Here are all files which contain lz4 streams
Code:
xtool.ini
[Dunia2]
BaseDir=pack\data_final\pc
File1=common.dat
File2=patch.dat
File3=patchshadersobj.dat
File4=shadersobj.dat
File5=worlds\fcbworlds.dat
File6=worlds\fcbworlds_german.dat
File7=worlds\fcbworlds_german_feminine.dat
File8=worlds\installpkg.dat
File9=worlds\installpkg_german.dat
File10=worlds\installpkg_german_feminine.dat
Code:
arc.ini
[External compressor:xprecomp]
header    = 0
packcmd   = xtool.exe e:precomp:t100p,c128m:lz4 - - <stdin> <stdout>
unpackcmd = xtool.exe d:precomp:t100p - - <stdin> <stdout>
Maybe you have to use only listed files in xtool.ini in directory (I don't know if it still works if you have other files in pack folder like exe etc) I have only tested with listed files (dat+fat) in their respective folder structure.

On xtool arc.ini = c32mb,t75p:zlib

zstdrec+xZlib+srep:m3f+lolz:dtb1:d128m:mtt1:mt4

Also You can use d192m and mc1023 and m5f to get better ratio.. if you have 8 threads or 16T cpu change
mt4 to 8 or 16.. It will speed up the process..

I would recommend using xprecomp (xzlib) first.

I know how to use these tools and their settings. I need to know his exact lolz settings to get 21.7 GB size because I can't get that size with my settings.

Well i have!

Pack All files with srep+lolz, ( exe, dll, bin, etc..)
and all small (.pak) files with zstdrec+zlib+srep+lolz

For that Big 33GB file,
Use exact settings that i gave you earlier.

and You have to remove 6.05GB useless video DLC file
with that one you'll never even able to get 24GB

So remove that one...

^You got 21.7 GB with this lolz setting = lolz:dtb1:d128m:mtt1:mt4 ?
Also I saw you used srep:m3f so srep by default went with l512, srep:m3f:l512 is what you used.
