Yes I said that but I fixed the problem and now it works, also I've only deleted movies that they're not used in the game. Have a look at Lifepod_FullScene.bik, dlcmiddle.bik and flashback1.bik, they are just a pre-rendered useless videos.

@mnn, can you send me your repacker? Please. I guess, I'm missing something.

Well, that's rather unsatisfying solution.

I know, until I find a solution to why the lzma.dll doesn't compress properly, I've switched to a C# function. It works but it's not compatible with the decompress function of Rick's SFXArchiveUnpack.
