a super fast installer creator(NSISFAST64)

Based on the previous article, nsis64. this version is also a 32bit program, also supports 4GB single installer, and supports data files(the final installer size is almost unlimited when used with data file).

Beside the super large installer support, this version replaced crc32 with xxhash, replaced lzma with lz4, and reconstruct the lower level nsis file layout. It’s amazing fast! very fast to pack, very fast to self check, and very fast to install!

Very suitable for game installers, and patchers, because usually, games have compressed their resources with zlib or similar tools. Based on this theory, games don’t need to high compression installers, instead, they need a faster compression and decompression installer.

please remove the .pdf extension after download, it’s a zip file.
