I dream of a program suite like [Overseer+Jacket+Sonaar+Plex] which would search, download and organize a video game library.

Does one already exist?

    I think you misunderstood two separate thoughts.

    1. Your listed compression methods are not as high compression as what some repackers use.
    2. The compression algorithm used by some repackers is not supported by OS’s or many common archiving software.

      1. You’re wrong.
      2. Moot point, because of point #1 being wrong.

      The compression differences between arc and others are insignificant. On the orders of maybe 10’s of megabytes. They are not making custom packagers, etc just to save 10 megabytes on a 7gb ROM.

        You are a fucking dumbass, please just shut the fuck up. Don’t download the repacks then, dipshit. The higher compression ratio is valuable for SEEDING, you know, the thing you should be doing with the torrents you consume. It also is nice to have a shorter download.

        Also its clear the entire unpacking process is designed to be idiot proof. Hence the exe.
