Can you use this compressor?
Code:
[External compressor:bliz]
cmem      = 600
dmem      = 600
default   = 100
packcmd   = "Blizzard\bliz.exe" c $$arcdatafile$$.tmp $$arcpackedfile$$.tmp {option}000000
unpackcmd = "Blizzard\bliz.exe" d $$arcpackedfile$$.tmp $$arcdatafile$$.tmp

Lord.Freddy: Nothing. I haven't met him yet, the Blizzard compressor. Testing now in next hours/days.

DLZ = (D)ds modeled (LZ)ma v0.2.2 by profrager

Quick tests: 2* Faster than LZMA and comparable ratio.
Code:
Tested 164 files, 13,760,715 => 83,606,836 bytes. Ratio 16.46%
Testing time: cpu 0.16 sec/real 29.28 sec = 1%. Speed 2.86 mB/s
Tested again, packed all files in one ARC file, in store mode and packing in Blizzard. Small, default blocksize its better!?
Code:
bliz.exe c bmp_store.arc bmp_.blz 300000000  ---> 13 762 777 byte
bliz.exe f bmp_store.arc bmp_.blz 300000000  ---> 13 963 348 byte
bliz.exe f bmp_store.arc bmp_.blz  ---> 13 604 705 byte
bliz.exe c bmp_store.arc bmp_.blz ---> 13 396 429byte
Quick note: Best results get in use 8MB blocksize (smaller/bigger, worse results): 13 369 598 byte

Good evening, I've extracted a .archive file and this is composed of several .bin files. Which is the best method to compress these .bin files? I've tried with precomp v0.4.7, then with xzlib, with no compression results at all. Is there a specific compressor or a mix of them? Thank you!

You should know what these bin files include.

Thank you for your reply! The .archive file i've extracted is a file from Cyberpunk 2077 and it's a language file, so I think .bin files inside are audio file or sound file. Do you think I have to use MSC or similar tools to compress them?

I belive the *.ggpack* archives in Return To Monkey Island are XOR encrypted. None of the current keys from this list appear to be correct.
