Masquerade is on a distinguished road
Fallout 3 [Game Of The Year Edition]

Total start size: 8.57GB

Compress using following method:
  • *.bpk
    Code:
    bpk
  • *.mp3
    Code:
    mpz
  • Everything else:
    Code:
    xtool:e:precomp:c128m,100p:zlib+srep:a2:m5f:l512+lolz:dt:dtb1:dtw1:dtm1:dto1:dtd1:mtt1:mt4:d64m:fba4096

Total packed size: 5.16GB

Yes, the BSA files contain dds images, wav audio and mp3 streams and this can be solved with msc - but this brings the conversion to 5.7GB. The files are full of zlib streams, making xtool a fine choice.

Note: Using a chunk size of 128m in XTool causes it to get stuck eventually. I used default size 16m and everything ran smooth

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.
Another one with lolz:dtb1:mtt1:mt6:d128m:mc1023 instead of 4x4:lzma

Code:
20:57:01 - Starting Archive Creation. 
11:24:34 - Archive Creation Complete. 

Input Size: 75.04 GB. 
Output Size: 47.92 GB.

NieR:Automata Game of the yorha edition

Quote:
Game does contain crilayla but the files compress very well under srep etc you only get a 1 to 2 gig size difference wich is really in my opinion not worth the time it takes to decompress
Method nothing ripped or recoded

Quote:
srep+pexp:b64:t5:lzma64:ultra:a1:mfbt4:d200m:fb273 :mc1000000000:lc8
initial size 48.2 gb

compressed size 25.7

decompress time on my pc 10 minutes
