Northlight Tool
  • Extraction utility for the following games:
    • Alan Wake (PC/X360)
    • Alan Wake American Nightmare (PC/X360)
    • Quantum Break (PC, possible XOne)
    • Control (PC, possible XOne/PS4)
    • Alan Wake Remastered (PC, possible XOne/PS4)
  • Useful because you can extract Bink videos. For example, I extracted Bink videos from CONTROL and then you can compress them with BPK afair.

WolvenKit CLI
  • Command line extraction utility for REDEngine games (e.g. The Witcher 3: The Wild Hunt, Cyberpunk 2077).
  • Example usage, extracting Bink videos from Cyberpunk 2077 - BPK doesn't work for them, but this way you can extract the credits video. Gives file names and paths unlike Aluigi's BMS script.
  • CLI version works significantly easier than GUI version.

Bincat
  • Bincat is a simple tool to join together files in a directory into a single file.
  • Limited in some respects because it does not run recursively so you can only concatenate files if they are all in the same folder.
  • Very niche tool with very interesting uses. In my repacks, I have used this to join together several decompressed LZ4 streams in the engine used by the WRC games (PPKG files) into one big file. You can then compress the big file with LZ4 and HDiffZ it. Hopefully I will explain here one day the process of extracting the streams, decompressing them and then building the new file with Bincat.

Gust Tools
  • Various tools for modding of Gust engine games (think Koei Tecmo).
  • You will be particularly interested in gust_pak.exe because it can extract ecnrypted Koei Tecmo PAK archives leaving a JSON file and decrypted files. You can then use gust_pak.exe to rebuild the archive from the JSON file. They are so similar you can XDelta the new file to make it the old file and have a 100% CRC perfect repack. The delta files are only a few kb in size, so I didn't even bother using HDiffZ in this case. It's not worth the long patch generation time.

The Duper v1.4.01
  • You can use this to remove duplicate files from your game. This means there is less to compress. Makes a handy batch file to re-copy all of the duplicated files.
    Code:
    THE DUPER v 1.4.01
    ===================
    This app it's used to compare files and the result it's a 2 .bat files
    -Dupe.bat y remove.bat
    
    How to use:
    -------------
    Unpack this zip in a folder and copy the 3 .exe where you want analiyze the files, and execute dcmp.exe and wait, when the program finish you found 2 .bat files
    
    If you Execute remove.bat, in this case you delete the duped files
    When you removed the duped files in the installation program make a "call" to the file dupe.bat and you recover the files
    
    Don't forgett to delete the files list_tmp.txt ref_tmp.txt, both are a temps from the analisys
    
    
    This program it's under license FREEWARE. DON'T PAY FOR THAT
    AT NO MOMENT ONE TAKES RESPONSIBILITY OF ANY DAMAGE TO YOUR COMPUTER, OR HARDWARE OR SOFTWARE, LIKE ANY LOST ONE OF DATA

All contributions are appreciated

I held off on posting this because the par structure of Yakuza games is slightly complex in that there's par archives within par archives so it's not an easy one to recompress.

@all Please feel free to add anything to this thread you think is useful, the whole purpose of this thread is to encourage everyone to learn a bit more about how to compress even smaller.
