In Pathfinder Kingmaker, there is a folder called Bundles, containing among other unity files with *_bundle ending but without extension. These are about 16.6gb.

I can inflate them using latest xtool(with unity.dll from here) and liblz4.dll from ztool(~65kb), however I have to set solid = 0 in arc.ini for xtool. With solid ON it stop inflating at around 800mb into, giving only 17.4gb. I don't know if it's bug or unity files are supposed to work without solid. Otherwise it work fine, just wanted to mention it.
(On side note, punity will not work with that liblz4.dll, give exception loading it.)

Now I am thinking its maybe better to turn off solid for most precompressors and engines I use, such as crilayla, unreal, unity, anvil, kraken, zstd... also mp3, ogg, jpg etc.. except deflate? It seems too flaky and I don't have time to test manually every time 10+gb of data whether it inflated correctly everything or stopped at some point. I know this problem existed for long time.
Anyone with experience, for precomp tools alone solid turned off should not have much impact on final size right?

The only precompressor I have seen that works better in non-solid mode is the unity one. The rest is fine to run normally.

Thank you, I also just found that it's not even viable option after all.
When doing something like xtool:munity+srep+lzma where xtool is set to solid = 0, FA will pass that upstream. That is srep and lzma will also be applied to each file individually before joining archive.

I found out after wasting hours compressing, so now I am doing those files through batch script before packing with FA. I found using ppx2 to parallel xtool(with -t1) for each file instead of doing "tar" through FA with single xtool and -t100p give significant speed boost as well.

Plugin(s) updated

Changes

- Added support for FIFA 22 in Frostbite 3 plugin

Notes

Some streams are left behind.

Just like FIFA 21 wasn't worth it, FIFA 22 is also not worth it.

Code:
Tested 1 file, 233,182,965 => 103,625,666 bytes. Ratio 225.02%
Testing time: cpu 0.14 sec/real 179.17 sec = 0%. Speed 0.58 mB/s
They keep increasing compression, I guess as a form of differentiating FIFA 20 from FIFA 21 from FIFA 22 because it's the same game...

Plugin(s) updated

Changes

- Added support for Battlefield 2042 (based on Open-Beta files) in Frostbite 3 plugin

Notes

The final release of game might have different compression settings. (Make adjustments where necessary)

Battlefield 2042 Open Beta\Data\Win32\installation\levelsinstallpackage\ cas_01.cas:
Code:
Tested 1 file, 405,732,037 => 204,049,188 bytes. Ratio 198.84%
Testing time: cpu 0.20 sec/real 91.37 sec = 0%. Speed 2.23 mB/s
@Cesar82

The tools that are currently available are closed source so unless if there are other methods that I don't know about regarding decryption of Avengers game, perhaps you could make a plugin yourself. (Make it your first xtool plugin)

Because the plugin is broken again.

It worked on a specific xtool version, but I don't remember which of them.

This attachment combination works, but you cannot use the latest versions of XTool with it.
