Use MPZ with Trick's

When someone fails to compress with mpz stdio, This tool can actually help you to find out.
Making CLS with Universal CLS (by 78372), rename from cls-mpz.dll to arc-mpz.dll.
And then use with CLS Wrapper (by 78372) to make it work compress for mp3 file.
And now it works without having trouble.

First, I've tried so many times to used mpzapi with stdio. But when I try to compress with a few mp3 files (including my own song), I got stuck like 10% of FreeArc. So I've made another one with a few things that I figure out without having a problem. Making CLS with Universal CLS (78372) and rename the DLL file, using with CLS Wrapper (78372) and turns out, it works. You can see the screenshot that I upload on the first thread.

Are you sure it's not a version mismatch between the main program and the DLL? We've already run into something like that in another thread.

Nah I mean the cls dll file that I create for mpz. Rename from cls-mpz.dll to arc-mpz.dll to make it work for CLS Wrapper. Even though the configuration inside on arc.ini, It's not necessary to get compress all mp3 files.

But mpz already supports stdio?

Code:
[External compressor:mpz]
header    = 0
packcmd   = {compressor} c <stdin> <stdout>
unpackcmd = {compressor} d <stdin> <stdout>

It doesn't work for me then. Stuck compressing at 3%.

What's the CRC of your mpz? I just renamed the exe. If yours doesn't trigger defender, please upload it. I do not know why mine triggers defender, you know I wouldn't upload malware anywhere.

@KaktoR

The reason our file do not match, my copy of MPZ comes from the upload "Mpz Accelerator" by BLACKFIRE69. He packed mpz.exe with upx, so when I decompresed the file using upx, it failed to restore the file perfectly, so some bytes are imperfect.

This doesn't seem to have affected operation for me since I've been using that MPZ exe for a while now with no issue (both in stdio and $$arc$$).

I'll be switching to the correct exe now

Why have you put "- - <stdin> <stdout>"?

It's just <stdin> <stdout> likeI posted above.
