Wanna learn highly compressed repacks

Hey there, I wanna try repacking for fun like fitgirl and every other repacker. If anybody can help please explain to me step by step everything from compressing the game to creating an installer package for it, your help will mean a lot to me I've been trying this for days but failed every time.

LEGO Worlds [Build 3833060 - ENGLISH ONLY]

Step 1:

Unpack game files using QuickBMS + Modified BMS script posted here.

Step 2:

Patch the game exe as shown here. This will enable the game to run in an unpacked state. Developers deliberately tried to prevent this!

Step 2.5 [Optional]:

You can separate Voiceover files inside "AUDIO\VO\DX\NARRATOR" directory.

Step 3:

Compress

Code:
srep+lolz/$ogg=srep+lzma2
4.8GB ===> 1.6GB

Notes:
  • Don't use oggre, it doesn't decompress.
  • The sizes above are for English only repack, if you add all other voiceovers, ofc it will be larger.
  • A collective thanks to aluigi, acidicoala and our mutual friend m0xf for the unpacking tools and EXE patching.

I experienced issues with srep v3.92b with this game so I used srep v3.2 instead.

how to use this command with DiskSpanGui2007? when i copy

srep+lolz/$wav=msc+srep+lzma2/$mp4=srep+zstd

DiskSpanGui2007 answers me the "$wav=msc" method is not supported.

For Life Is Strange Remastered, you can extract WWise Audio to use WemTool + separate JP voiceovers. You need QuickBMS:

BMS Script: https://bayfiles.com/L046w1Ffx9/unreal_bms

To extract:
Code:
quickbms_4gb_files -f "*.wem" unreal.bms pakchunk0-WindowsNoEditor.pak tmp
Now make a copy of the tmp folder, call it tmp2 or whatever.
Then eliminate the wem files from the archive with the following commands:
Code:
 for /f "tokens=*" %%i in ('dir /b /s /a *.wem') do cd.>"%%i" 
quickbms -w -r unreal.bms pakchunk0-WindowsNoEditor.pak tmp
Thanks to Dixen for the first command to null the wems.

This will reimport empty space where the wems originally were.

Then, run wemtool over the extracted wems to compress them.

Finally, during decompression, decode the wems with wemtool then reimport them with quickbms
Code:
quickbms -w -r unreal.bms pakchunk0-WindowsNoEditor.pak tmp2

I got confused in the manipulation to do, can you confirm the steps:

I do :

1: quickbms_4gb_files -f "*.wem" unreal.bms pakchunk0-WindowsNoEditor.pak tmp

2: I copy everything in TMP to TMP2

3: for /f "tokens=*" %i in ('dir /b /s /a *.wem') do cd.>"%i"
4: quickbms -w -r unreal.bms pakchunk0-WindowsNoEditor.pak tmp

5: I launch WemTool -e in the TMP2 folder

I don't understand this part:
Finally, during decompression, decode the wems with wemtool then reimport them with quickbms

6 ????

7: quickbms -w -r unreal.bms pakchunk0-WindowsNoEditor.pak tmp2

WemTool.exe -d
