Anno 1404 History Edition
Nothing ripped, all languages

Code:
Selected ARC/DS method for Data1a-01.bin was: srep_new+mpz_mtx

Data1a = all language files in addon/maindata folder
Data1b = maindata\data4.rda

Note: maindata\data4.rda has bink videos inside. You can compress with bpk, but unpacking will lead to crc errors.

Nothing ripped, all languages

Code:

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Installation folder size: 12.77 GB
Compressed game size: 5.86 GB (Ratio 45.87%)

Mask $anno1701hempz = data2_<language>.rda (all of this files also containing bink videos. binkpack works fine here)
Mask $anno1701hebpk =  data4.rda, data5.rda (this files also containing non-bink files, so use bpk+<some compressor>)
Code:
Overall Note: For the rda files in the "ahe" folders of all 4 games you can use zlib

ToolGfx\*.bmp (msc crash)

Anno 1701 History Edition
data2_<lang>.rda (contains bink videos/mp3, bpk+mpz throws errors, use bpk+msc)

Has anyone had any luck with "Devil May Cry 4: Special Edition"? Tried what feels like every version of XTool 2019/2020 under the sun in conjunction with srep & lolz but the ".arc" archives always seem to fail to extract properly on decompression.

May i know the full description of the error?

If not try sending me a very small sample of that game*arc file with mentioned compression applied, i will look into it.

Cheers mate, but I've managed to resolve my issue. I was fiddling with lolz a tad and it seems perhaps the culprit was the dictionary size used, after lowering the size of said dictionary decompression was successful. I wasn't aware this setting could jeopardise the integrity of an archive, which might explain a couple of other compression I've attempted ("Deus Ex: Mankind Divided" & The first "Nioh" title) but failed to achieve successful decompression of their respective packed archives.

As for WDL, you can straight pack videos_ultra.dat with bpk. For videos.dat this does not work. It get stuck on 6.4%, I guess you have to unpack the file first.

Code:
Compressed 1 file, 3,704,538,840 => 3,145,628,556 bytes. Ratio 84.91%
Compression time: cpu 2.45 sec/real 401.17 sec = 1%. Speed 9.23 mB/s
All OK

Extracted 1 file, 3,145,628,556 => 3,704,538,840 bytes. Ratio 84.91%
Extraction time: cpu 4.22 sec/real 367.05 sec = 1%. Speed 10.09 mB/s
All OK

Cool

I am having an issue with UELR, it starts to do it's thing, then stops with this error:

ERROR: general (de)compression error in uelr

Here's my setup:
Quote:
[External compressor:uelr]
header = 0
packcmd = UELR\uelr_x64 uv $$arcdatafile$$.tmp $$arcpackedfile$$.tmp
I have also tried using "ulv" rather than "uv" but it brings up the error still. The game I am using it on is Lost Planet 3 BTW.

Make sure to only process tfc/upk files with uelr

UELR will crash out if no LZO streams are detected.
