Msc : compresses media streams IN FILES. (WAV,RAW audio,MP3)

SREP: makes full length deduplication. In short:it makes files smaller,improves compression ratio,increases decompression speed.
XTOOL : alternate for precomp. Very fast.
RZ : Compressor,like LZMA,LOLZ,etc. Deduplicates and compresses. Has a few optimizations. (EXE,some media)

Btw u have to experience with them....

Use MSC:

- For wav audio (msc:wav=1:tak=9)

- For Bitmap Files (msc:bmp=1:bmf=9)

- For Raw audio / images (msc:raw=1:bmf=9:tak=9)

Do not use MSC on dds images since it gets stuck and crashes, but still sends an Errorlevel 0 so FreeArc continues and you end up with a broken archive at the end.

Use MPZ for MP3 audio (even on files that contain MP3 audio since MPZ can do streams too).

There isn't much point of using nano zip now that lolz / rz exists. Even still, lolz is used 90% of the time. RZ is only useful on a small set of file types.

Same goes for pzlib - XTool is much better.

So on a normal file, use srep+lolz (srep used to deduplicate data).

Only use xzlib (XTool - packcmd = xtool:erecomp:zlib) on files that contain zlib Streams. Not every file will contain such streams, but you can use Razor12911's Game File Scanner to search files for presence of such streams.
