Savestate and savefile compression on older files

Hello all.

Regarding the new compressed format introduced in v1.8.6 for savestates, savefiles and playlists, is there a way to compress an existing library of savefiles and savestates without re-creating them?

I’m hoping there’s a tool that uses the same format. Nothing that I use recognizes the compression type. I also tried rzip without luck.


I don’t think so, as it’s using some compression stuff from libretro-common, which isn’t “homegrown” exactly, but may not translate exactly to anything standalone. Not sure.

I’ll ask jdgleaver, who added it, if there’s anything you can use to squish the old ones down.
