Upload .arc file

Post by Nicolasdes on Sun 23 Dec 2012, 20:03

Hi, I've a very slow connection, I would download Sims 3: Late Night but.. 6go ?!
Can you upload some file .arc compressed with UHARC ?
It will be great for people like me who have a slow connection.
Thank you

If you're going for best size, arc isn't the answer. Its features include being one of the fastest, but not so much on the compression ratio - to quote a datasheet that they point to, the compression ratio is just behind 7z, which is just behind rar (7z suffers on media file formats, where RAR is made specifically for it - RAR suffers on other file formats where 7z excels). The two best currently are (in order of "worst" to "best" - and is arguable depending on the types of files being compressed, as explained previously) is rar and 7z.

Yes, I search a "real" compressed file.

Hello,

Back then we didn't have as much knowledge as we have now.
We try to make the files as small as possible, maintaining the quality and ease you're used from Games4theworld.
