Thanks.

Also, I think the audio rebuilding in AoE2HD is badly made since it has lower quality overall and the dialogues cut off before ending. I recorded it and compared it to a xatab release by replacing the resources folder with the untouched one.

Edit: Here's a link of the comparison

For me it is a big one. The original folder is 2.7gb and the rebuilt one is 2.0gb so you could just skip encoding the audio files while making the repack slightly larger. Maybe it could be 1GB instead of 747MB unlike xatab's huge 2.64gb installer.

Apparently, other games using the same compression also suffer from this:

Might as well be done with audio entirely and go back to 2009-era rips.

alot of the games in this collection are from before 2009, and most of the audio is already 16khz-22khz so its not going to get much better. all the pack is encoded to the scene standard rip rules so is above board for the intended time period, the pack was always intended to be old skool to squeeze in as many games as possible "like the old days"
your on the wrong post for lossless really, most of our newer stuff outside of this pack is untouched or in some cases encoded at a higher quality with the audio being mostly 44khz-48khz, in most cases now the audio is already encoded by the developers so we leave it alone.

edit:

i just watched those movies on me pc this time, it must be just my old ears but i cant tell any real noticable difference, apart from the couple of cut off ones.

added Forged.Battalion.(2018).REPACK-KaOs not an old game but a nice small enjoyable one using a newer version of the c&c generals engine.
found myself stuck to it for quite sometime wile testing.

removed lotr battle for middle earth
was difficult to get both games running together correctly with all the upto date mods and patches, i may go back to it at a later date and only include the final offical patches if i am ever able to work out what those are.

removed spellforce 2
the game itself has an rts mode with base building but was never really made with that sort of gameplay in mind, its main focus is rpg in my opinion.

removed Parkan.Iron.Strategy.
a good game but leaned to far towards the fps game type, there were also graphical glitches on modern os i was unable to correct.
