Yes, I found them. I should have used the search function instead of looking with my eyes. Thanks, Kaktor!

In TLOU, it doesn't specify which files are in archive "Data1a-01" ,and "Data1b-01", and I don't understand what it says in Uncharted:
"XTool (zlib+kraken*)+srep+lolz, (*Use oo2core_9_win64.dll from game folder)"
How can I use that?

As for TLOU, use the xtool plugin for the all the *.psarc files.

For Uncharted game, use xtool kraken for all *.psarc files.

If you use DiskSpanGUI, load the game presets from the database.

Thank you for pointing out the database feature. Does it take care of the exclusions of certain files to be compressed by a certain algo?
or do I still have to do all that manually?

BTW, for future reference, does FileForums have a backup site/discord?
in case the site is down and somebody needs help.

It does take care of all that stuff. Most of the games are tested by me. Just make sure to update the database from time to time.

And no, fileforums does not have a backup or discord.

Days Gone
For pak files use kraken with t400 setting and use oodle library v2.9.5.
I have tested alot and t400 is the peak here.

Code:
xtool:mkraken:core_2.9.5
Compressed 1 file, 1,434,557,804 => 2,372,372,647 bytes. Ratio 165.37%
Compression time: cpu 0.73 sec/real 625.16 sec = 0%. Speed 2.29 mB/s
All OK
Code:
xtool:mkraken,t400:core_2.9.5
Compressed 1 file, 1,434,557,804 => 3,436,433,230 bytes. Ratio 239.55%
Compression time: cpu 0.58 sec/real 22.03 sec = 3%. Speed 65.13 mB/s
All OK

Good morning everybody! I'm trying to compress "Fallout: New Vegas Ultimate Edition" and my mask for *.bsa files and results are:

xt_zlib+srep_old:392+lolz:dtb1:d512m:mtb96:ldl5:mc 1023
21 files: 8,588,002,315 byte => 4,776,969,655 bytes. Ratio 55.62%

This site reports the following results:

*.bsa
xtool(zlib)+srep+lolz
(54.5% Ratio)

I suppose the compressed byte are the same bytes as I compressed, but the result is better. Which is the configuration of LOLZ? It seems it isn't reported...

Thanks for your reply!

Maybe someone may find this usefull.

I have attached xtl files to extract WEM sounds from both "base-generic-*.rmdblob" and "stream0-generic-*.rmdblob" files (only files which are atleast 100kb in size). The xtl files are compatible with game version 1.0.14.

Processing those WEM files will save you additional 200mb. I removed in total 5 of the WEM files which are not encodable, which leads either to infinite encoding the files (temp files will grow infinitely), or they are just finished instantly, which will lead to broken files if you decode them back to original.

Maybe you have to edit file paths.

Bad WEM files in question:
Code:
"base-generic\data_pc\audio\media\152227780.wem"
"base-generic\data_pc\audio\media\526830619.wem"
"base-generic\data_pc\audio\media\577391364.wem"
"base-generic\data_pc\audio\media\880082258.wem"
"base-generic\data_pc\audio\media\908534589.wem"
1. Command to extract WEM files with xtool
Code:
:WEM base-generic
if not exist "extracted_data\base-generic" (
mkdir "extracted_data\base-generic" )
xtool extract "aw2_base_generic.xtl" "base-generic-000.rmdblob" "extracted_data\base-generic"
xtool extract "aw2_base_generic.xtl" "base-generic-001.rmdblob" "extracted_data\base-generic"
xtool extract "aw2_base_generic.xtl" "base-generic-002.rmdblob" "extracted_data\base-generic"
xtool extract "aw2_base_generic.xtl" "base-generic-003.rmdblob" "extracted_data\base-generic"
xtool extract "aw2_base_generic.xtl" "base-generic-004.rmdblob" "extracted_data\base-generic"
xtool extract "aw2_base_generic.xtl" "base-generic-005.rmdblob" "extracted_data\base-generic"
xtool extract "aw2_base_generic.xtl" "base-generic-006.rmdblob" "extracted_data\base-generic"
xtool extract "aw2_base_generic.xtl" "base-generic-007.rmdblob" "extracted_data\base-generic"
xtool extract "aw2_base_generic.xtl" "base-generic-008.rmdblob" "extracted_data\base-generic"

:WEM stream0-generic
if not exist "extracted_data\stream0-generic" (
mkdir "extracted_data\stream0-generic" )
xtool extract "aw2_stream_generic.xtl" "stream0-generic-000.rmdblob" "extracted_data\stream0-generic"
xtool extract "aw2_stream_generic.xtl" "stream0-generic-001.rmdblob" "extracted_data\stream0-generic"
xtool extract "aw2_stream_generic.xtl" "stream0-generic-002.rmdblob" "extracted_data\stream0-generic"
xtool extract "aw2_stream_generic.xtl" "stream0-generic-003.rmdblob" "extracted_data\stream0-generic"
xtool extract "aw2_stream_generic.xtl" "stream0-generic-004.rmdblob" "extracted_data\stream0-generic"
xtool extract "aw2_stream_generic.xtl" "stream0-generic-005.rmdblob" "extracted_data\stream0-generic"
xtool extract "aw2_stream_generic.xtl" "stream0-generic-006.rmdblob" "extracted_data\stream0-generic"
xtool extract "aw2_stream_generic.xtl" "stream0-generic-007.rmdblob" "extracted_data\stream0-generic"
xtool extract "aw2_stream_generic.xtl" "stream0-generic-008.rmdblob" "extracted_data\stream0-generic"
xtool extract "aw2_stream_generic.xtl" "stream0-generic-009.rmdblob" "extracted_data\stream0-generic"
pause
2. Command to erase WEM files with xtool
Code:
:WEM base-generic
xtool erase "base-generic" "base-generic-000.rmdblob" "aw2_base_generic.xtl"
xtool erase "base-generic" "base-generic-001.rmdblob" "aw2_base_generic.xtl"
xtool erase "base-generic" "base-generic-002.rmdblob" "aw2_base_generic.xtl"
xtool erase "base-generic" "base-generic-003.rmdblob" "aw2_base_generic.xtl"
xtool erase "base-generic" "base-generic-004.rmdblob" "aw2_base_generic.xtl"
xtool erase "base-generic" "base-generic-005.rmdblob" "aw2_base_generic.xtl"
xtool erase "base-generic" "base-generic-006.rmdblob" "aw2_base_generic.xtl"
xtool erase "base-generic" "base-generic-007.rmdblob" "aw2_base_generic.xtl"
xtool erase "base-generic" "base-generic-008.rmdblob" "aw2_base_generic.xtl"

:WEM stream0-generic
xtool erase "stream0-generic" "stream0-generic-000.rmdblob" "aw2_stream_generic.xtl"
xtool erase "stream0-generic" "stream0-generic-001.rmdblob" "aw2_stream_generic.xtl"
xtool erase "stream0-generic" "stream0-generic-002.rmdblob" "aw2_stream_generic.xtl"
xtool erase "stream0-generic" "stream0-generic-003.rmdblob" "aw2_stream_generic.xtl"
xtool erase "stream0-generic" "stream0-generic-004.rmdblob" "aw2_stream_generic.xtl"
xtool erase "stream0-generic" "stream0-generic-005.rmdblob" "aw2_stream_generic.xtl"
xtool erase "stream0-generic" "stream0-generic-006.rmdblob" "aw2_stream_generic.xtl"
xtool erase "stream0-generic" "stream0-generic-007.rmdblob" "aw2_stream_generic.xtl"
xtool erase "stream0-generic" "stream0-generic-008.rmdblob" "aw2_stream_generic.xtl"
xtool erase "stream0-generic" "stream0-generic-009.rmdblob" "aw2_stream_generic.xtl"
pause
3. Encode with WemTool
Code:
WemTool.exe -e
4. Compress files

5. Decode with WemTool
Code:
WemTool.exe -d
6. Decode files with xtool (move them back into game files)
Code:
:WEM base-generic
xtool decode "aw2_base_generic.xtl" "base-generic" "base-generic-000.rmdblob"
xtool decode "aw2_base_generic.xtl" "base-generic" "base-generic-001.rmdblob"
xtool decode "aw2_base_generic.xtl" "base-generic" "base-generic-002.rmdblob"
xtool decode "aw2_base_generic.xtl" "base-generic" "base-generic-003.rmdblob"
xtool decode "aw2_base_generic.xtl" "base-generic" "base-generic-004.rmdblob"
xtool decode "aw2_base_generic.xtl" "base-generic" "base-generic-005.rmdblob"
xtool decode "aw2_base_generic.xtl" "base-generic" "base-generic-006.rmdblob"
xtool decode "aw2_base_generic.xtl" "base-generic" "base-generic-007.rmdblob"
xtool decode "aw2_base_generic.xtl" "base-generic" "base-generic-008.rmdblob"

:WEM stream0-generic
xtool decode "aw2_stream_generic.xtl" "stream0-generic" "stream0-generic-000.rmdblob"
xtool decode "aw2_stream_generic.xtl" "stream0-generic" "stream0-generic-001.rmdblob"
