SHARE and also share your methods problems or compressores problems
but i can't help with reflate de-compression or even precomp sorry

their is no best method you simply try what is the most suited one for your game it's useless to use a one method for all
BTW
srep:m3f:a16:d1g+nz (nz with o/O will give you better ratio than xz/lzma2 with the same time if you used much ram & more threads )

for zlib I usually use ppx2 with precomp038 it's the fastest way until now
for pzlib you know it will be a good replacement for reflate & Antiz
but still using ppx2 with precomp038 faster than pzlib for individual files

better to play with other tools like fp8 it's a zlib stream detector & an excellent compressor in the same time will be in next version of EGY_Compressor

I think that it will be super helpful for new users to read a guide on each individual method, with examples.
Today all the info is scattered across dozens of posts in dozens of threads
That way people like me who really want to understand so they do better and contribute to this community back, can do so

Extremely slow it detects each file type then compress it , you should use it for masks or in a lower compression profile

i don't use masks anymore because sometimes it gives bad compression ratio. like comressing game part part or folder splitter.compress all data with only one times is more better i think.

Haha man, if you have brain, then mask can atleast faster installation and many times better ratio. Just you need brain to use it

for EX: a game like Syndicate 2012 I used precomp mask for only one file data type & it gave me around 47% Ratio instead of separate those files into another data
Masks is a good option if you intend to use one archive with different methods for similar types of data
