Knight Compressor

Knight Compressor

It is a compressor tool with simple GUI and lots of flexibility in term of adding new compression method and compression options.

Special thanks to Cesar82 for his significant contribution and efforts throughout this project and without his support it was not possible for me to complete this project.

Quote:
Steps to add new compression method and options are below: (lets say we want to add srep compression method)
  1. Add the compression method srep in "Methods_x32.ini" (if it is 32 bit) and/ or in "Methods_x64.ini" (if it is 64 bit).
  2. Create a folder srep in "Resource32" (if it is 32 bit) and/ or in "Resource64" (if it is 64 bit) and copy resources in the folder.
  3. Edit arc.ini file in "Resource32" (if it is 32 bit) and/ or in "Resource64" (if it is 64 bit).

    [External compressor:srep]
    header = 0
    packcmd = Resource32\srep\srep {options} InFile - <stdout>
    datafile = InFile

    [External compressor:srep]
    header = 0
    packcmd = Resource64\srep\srep{options} InFile - <stdout>
    datafile = InFile

  4. Create a text file and name it srep and change the extension to .ini. Add the options for the compression method.
Note: Try to keep the compression method and resource name same. e.g. srep

Remark:
There is no intention of infringing anyone's copyright.

Fixed a bug

Changelog v1.2
Fixed - temp directory was not getting deleted on cancelling the compression process.

Changelog v1.1
Fixed - processes keep running after cancelling the compression process.

Hello dear friend and thanks you for your program
The program has a problem and that is that I compressed a 5gb game with the method pzlib + oodlrecm + mcm + srep + xz to test.
Now I tried to install the game with a setup, but it took a long time to start the installation, until I stopped the setup,please solve this problem .....

If the problem is with the compressor, it would have not created the archive itself. So the problem may be with installer you are using.

Can you share your installer script?

Below may be causing the issue:
  1. Setup is using fazip instead of freearc (both are same or not - I am not aware of).
  2. srep doesn't need unpack command in are.ini file (coz cls file will be automatically detected by freearc and it doesn't require any unpack command):

Code:
[External compressor:srep]
header    = 0
packcmd   = Srep\srep.exe {options} -a1 -m5f $$arcdatafile$$.tmp $$arcpackedfile$$.tmp
unpackcmd = fazip -i0 decompress:srep <stdin> <stdout>

I get "WARNING: no files, erasing empty archive" when I try to compress, even though I chose my source and output folder, and my source has my data. What did I do wrong?
