Compressing Versailles 1685

Post by scarmona » Wed Oct 16, 2019 2:46 pm

Hi all,
I'm looking for a way to compress Versailles 1685, does anyone have any experience doing this?
I extracted all the files from the original discs and my game folder is 930 Mb. The music files (Music and Sound folders) are roughly 76 Mb, so not a lot of gain. I'm wondering if other files can be compressed as well?
Thank you

Hi,
That will be quite complicated to compress things more. The majority of space is taken with images and videos which are already compressed (though the algorithm is not on par with current ones).
The parts that are not compressed and which take place are musics (as you already noticed) and dialogs which take about 100MB.

That's what I suspected but I wanted to confirm.
Thanks!
