    Talking BALZ v1.10 is here!

    OK, I added to BALZ a dummy mixer. I think compression gain worth an extra processing time. Check out:

    BTW, special thanks to Chris for his great ideas!

    Just did a very quick test to see how fast it would be on my AMD Sempron 2400+, Windows XP SP2. Here's the result:

    Test file: FP.log

    balz ex

    Compression Time: 216.91 Seconds

    Decompression Time: 1.55 Seconds


    balz e

    Compression Time: 12.95 Seconds

    Decompression Time: 1.69 Seconds

    Thanks for testing!

    Actually new BALZ became strong enough to beat LZMA:

    7-Zip 4.57, LZMA-Ultra: 6,838,321 bytes
    BALZ v1.10, ex: 6,550,527 bytes

    Or a slower RAR?

    It's a tough world out there, obviously more data is needed with regards to test sets though.

    The main problem with large datasets is that nobody's able to check your results.

    However, if we talking about popular game resources...

    Well, BALZ is kind of QUADv2. Some time ago I stopped working on QUAD, moving myself to more experiments... It should be noted that it is possible to increase compression ratio and speed of QUAD without changing the compatibility, however not too much. So, I'm hoping to finish working on BALZ making it sick compression software and release it at Source Forge as just my other projects - QUAD/LZPX(J)...
    Work in progress!
