@Razor12911 please can you release an updated plugin for Watch Dogs Legion? I tried with this and with different xtool versions but precompression doesn't work.

The configuration file can be discarded after encoding.

I digged into WDL once, found out that videos.dat contains bink files both HD+4K and they can ripped using HEX. I looked quite into it and realized that it can be reduced to as low as 15~18 GB. Alot of .wem files too, for which Masquerade made a seperate thread.

It would take weeks ofcourse, just to prepare the xdelta patches for each file since BPK compressor ain't coming along very well.


All of these without using XTool.

Use this to generate your own database file then use the files in the attachment for precompression, change the liblz4.dll depending on whichever gives better result.

Side note, this is incomplete. (More samples needed for completion)

Use 0.3.21 or earlier, there is a bug in 0.3.22 that prevents search plugins from working and shall be fixed in the next update

Streams in Only 23 files detected , some other big files (as london.dat) isn't detected
I used Xtool 0.3.21 with attached dlls in precompress and decompress
only shadersobj.dat expands well
but faced error in decompress

After several tests, I've come to the conclusion that precompression on this game is not worth it and here's why:

1. Weak compression is used and a strong compression algorithm does still work on the compressed data
2. A custom lz4 variant was used for the compression of this game meaning the public lz4 decompressor does not work.
3. I did get lz4 decompressor from ProFrager once before, it works on most streams but some get left behind as decompression just straight up fails, worse at times it corrupts the memory buffer causing xtool to crash.
4. All streams that are decompressed will have xdelta diff files contributing to negative ratio worsening the compression ratio you would have gotten otherwise.

So I decided to no longer work on this game as it seems to be a pain in the ass to only gain 1gb (probably at best), not worth the trouble, sorry

I tested it with samples of the ME Andromeda game (cas_08.cas) using the library libzstd.dll v1.2.0 together with XTool 0.3.11 (Before changing parse parameters) and it worked fine (Ratio 171.10%).
XTool 0.4.5 (with libzstd.dll v1.2.0) no does not inflate the precompressed file (Ratio 100.0%).

Code:
Pack.bat
arc.exe a -ep1 -r -ed -s; -w.\temp -mxtool:c32mb:mfrostbite3,zstd data.arc "pack\*"

Arc.ini
[External compressor:xtool]
header    = 0
default   = -c64mb -t100p
packcmd   = "xtool.exe" precomp { -option} --dbase - - <stdin> <stdout>
unpackcmd = "xtool.exe" decode -t100p - - <stdin> <stdout>


Files near XTool.exe 
frostbite3.ini
libzstd.dll (v1.2.0)
