compressed games

by siddharthku / April 29, 2011 1:01 PM PDT

many website claim that they have compressed 6 gb or more large game files to a very small size of 1 or 2 mb or even less using kgb archiever but realythey work.also they are compressed file so they may contain viruses and other spyware.i personally download some of the games from rapidshare and warez site but they don't work although they took more than 9 hours to decompress.is they realy work ?or these websites are doing this to increase their rapid points because lower the file size,maximum will download.

so if anybody come acrosss these ,discuss about it,
also be careful using these files
thanks

compression by kgb
by siddharthku / April 30, 2011 1:56 AM PDT

i have mentioned that all these things are done with kgb archiever.i just saying that all the game which are compressedby kgb archiever will not work because games all already compressed .exe files.so there is always a possibility of errors.although winzip and other compressing tools are much successful but kgb is in testing period.
also games demand a very high graphic so will their compression work correctly?
i downloaded more than 20 files from rapidshare and decompressing them will took around 10-11 hours although i have a 4 gb ram and core2duo machine.but still there is problem.this is not my own problem but the same happens with many of my friend.
is the claim made by some website that they can compress a executable of 6.7 gb to 64 kb is correct.will these files ever work correctly will anyone in reality ?

This title has been discussed before. As you can see this title was abandoned years ago. It's claims are false.

But you will find folk drag it up again for discussion. If it did this so well, we would all be using it.

It's easy enough

It's easy enough if I have a 6GB text file with a lot of repeating patterns. That could easily be compressed down to a miniscule size. Won't help you a bit if you're trying to pirate a game however.

People would be well advised to stay away from pirated software to begin with. There's no telling what may or may not have been added to bypass any security checks in the program. Maybe nothing, maybe some nasty virus or malware. Is it really worth the risk?
