    Just use https://github.com/nicoboss/nsz which is written in python and so compatible with any operating system.
    NSZ is the successor of the NSPZ file format and so there’s no reason to even use nsZip until NSZ support is added.

    NSZP is depreciated so use NSZ instead: https://github.com/nicoboss/nsz - it's Python and so works on every platform once you install https://www.python.org/downloads/.
    If you can't get it to work here an unofficial Windows executable I made last Sunday: http://www.nicobosshard.ch/nsz/nsz_nuitka_17f153d_portable.zip
    The next NSZ release will most likely contain windows binaries.

    Currently it's command line only. GUI will be implemented soon. Until then just use command line arguments. Use '.\nsz.exe --help' too see how to use it. You probably want to use it like '.\nsz.exe -C --level 22 --threads 8 "game.nsp"' to compress and '.\nsz.exe -D "game.nsz"' to decompress. Instead of "game.nsp" and "game.nsz" you can also specify a folder path containing multiple games.

    I've used it. Yet still encounter another issue... With this, I even can't pass the requirements installation sessions. I hope someday, you or anyone can make such kind of program than just need click and run so we can use it for much easier, especially for know nothing about programming just like me. I'll appreciate it so much. Hehehe.

    Will this reduce the file size to the point I can move it to my SD Card with a USB connection (under 4 GB)? How much space does this method save?

    it's probably different from game to game, depends on if the assets are already compressed or not.

    Use ryjin https://gbatemp.net/threads/ryjin-a-nsz-converter-mod.550174/page-7 look for the portable version. It uses the same nsz.exe of nicoboss

    I tried installing nszgui from pip, but it doesn't seem to exist on PyPi. Has it been removed?

    Sorry that's a mistake in the readme. It's "pip install nsz[gui]". Untill the next release "pip install nsz" will install the GUI too as since the change of making GUI optional no new version of nsz got released.

    Just for clarification: NSZ/XCZ are not really compressing things so if SX OS would ever support mounting XCZ files it wouldn't necessarily lead to longer loading times, right?

    Hi,
    What would be the best settings for a high compression ratio ?
    And what are the differences between solid and block compression ?

    Afair it "only" cuts unneeded things from the NCAs within the NSPs/XCIs, that's why I'm asking.
