Old vs. newest compression schools compare

Repacked again my very old MSTS REPACK compare the newest compression techniques.

MSTS 2004 HUN (repacked in year 2010!* Newest repack in last time 2021):

Old, ace*pcf.arc, 6 files: 1 694 461kB (ARC file, store --> PCF file --> ARC -mx)
New, one Data-1.arc file: 998 000kB (xZLib+srep+lolz)
Compare1: 1 742 537kB (no zlib precompression, SREP+LZMA only)
Compare2: 1 759 557 kB (ARC -mx only)
Compare3: 1 147 153 kB (xZLib+srep+LZMA)

Old, Data_arc.arc: 465 445kB (ARC file, rep:64mb --> ARC -mx)
New, Data-2.arc: 401 611kB (xZLib+srep+lolz)

Old, Snd.uha file: 186 970kB (ARC with TTA --> Uharc 0.6 -m3)
New, Snd-0.arc file: 181 873kB (msc+rep+4x4)

Binaries, old: 4225kB --> New: 4102kB (ARC only compression.)**

*use with P4 and 768MB RAM!
Yes! ~2.245GB ---> ~1.515GB. Installed game size: 7.4GB
Old version install time with Pentium B430 CPU and 1GB RAM: 62 minutes. (+/- few seconds.)
New version install time with Pentium B430 CPU and 1GB RAM: ~45 minutes! (44m38.55s)

**arc.exe a -lc1024 -ld1024 -ep1 -ed -s -r -w.\ Data.bin -mrep:256mb+exe2+delta+lzma:128mb:ultra:bt4:fb273:m c1023:lc8 "Data\*"

Note: xZLIB 0.12 x86, SREP x64 with m3f:a2 and LOLZ defaults with modified to d128m:tt16

See: https://i.kek.sh/aPm68PqdBfC.png

Any huge compression results attached in the file. Its will compress now ~22GB's MSTS game. (3nd variant with mods.)
Attached Files
File Type: txt MSTS_Repack.txt (7.1 KB, 6 views)

WOLCEN: Lords Of Mayhem (v1.1.4.6)

Step 1: Decrypt the game files:
  1. Download the decryption tool from the attachment below (credits to atom0s & Gabriel Dehan). This EXE is specific to game version v1.1.4.6.
  2. Drop the EXE into the game's root folder.
  3. Open CMD prompt here.
  4. Run the following command:
    Code:
    for /r %f in (*.pak) do Pak_Decrypt "%f" "%~df%~pf%~nf.zip"
  5. Once the above command completes, run the next command:
    Code:
    for /r %f in (*.zip) do del "%~df%~pf%~nf.pak"
  6. Once the above command completes, run the next command:
    Code:
    for /r %f in (*.zip) do ren "%f" "%~nf.pak"
Now you have a fully decrypted game.

Step 2: Compression
  • Make 2 archives.
  • Archive 2 will contain "Sounds_MISC.pak" and "Sounds_WEM.pak".
  • Archive 1 will contain everything else.

Start Size: 29.6GB

Method for archive 1:
Code:
xtool-zlib+srep+lolz
Method for archive 2:
Code:
srep+lzma
Final Compressed Size: 12.1GB
Attached Files
File Type: 7z Pak_Decrypt.7z (42.8 KB, 6 views)
