Archiving Q3 demos

Postby dyn » Sat Jun 26, 2010 21:57 UTC

7 Quake III demos, .dm_68

unpacked 20,735,654 bytes
demos.7z 14,673,744 bytes (Ultra compression)
demos.rar 15,189,437 bytes (Best compression)
demos.zip 16,159,857 bytes (7-zip internal zip)
demos.zip 16,317,563 bytes (Total Commander zip, level 9)

7zip is best, it also produces smaller zip files when used as zip packer.

7-zip - http://www.7-zip.org/
RAR - http://www.rarlab.com/

Demos from some other games compress even better, for example TF2 compressed to 40-50% size, because no encryption is used from demos.

Im a big fan of 7zip... also nice because where I work the firewall doesnt filter out this extension (yet).... good compression on most files compared to winzip, a few though for video came up larger, but best overall.
