Oh and the big advantage oo2recX has, that you can practically compress the whole game at once in one go (AFR can only process forge files, so you have to split the files in file types or use masking, with oo2recX you don't need to do this, like with XTool).
Thats really nice, specially when you have to install it on a SSD which usually are smaller. I didnt compress anything for various months because i was a bit busy with work, i will check out the new tools (my xtool is still on v0.9) and set up the configs (hope i still remember how to do all stuff haha). Will do Odyssey and Origins too but with Lolz as always. I didnt updated Odyssey to 1.4.0 yet, waiting for Monday for the last episode of Fate of Atlantis, still the last update is big as hell.

Thanks KaktoR !!!

A Very Stupid Question

Hi guys, Im very new here and I started to have a little interest in learning about compression. Reason, my games are too big for my computers and I wish to store for winter use (bad joke i know).

I saw this post about what is the best method to compress certain games. Hence, I would like to know what software did you guys use to proceed with the compression.

P.S: I don't mind getting my butt hurt for being a poor sport of lacking any knowledge in this. However, I hope to have an answer

For starting you can use UltraArc. Grab it from the tools archive here: https://fileforums.com/showthread.php?t=102510

Inside the tools archive you will find more usefull tools, for example the game file scanners.

Firstly thanks for the reply KaktoR,

I am currently trying UltraARC and just curious on the estimated time in the following scenario below:

File - Games
Sizes - 15GB - 30GB
Compressed Sizes - 10GB - 20GB

If there any lack of details, do let me know I will provide more

PS. it doesnt have to be accurate, I am just curious

It all depends on method you use and the files.
