NOVA - High Performance Data Compressor

Home Info Downloads

Nova9 is a high performance compression algorithm specially designed for good compression ratios in combination with the highest possible decompression speed.

  • compresses about as good a zip
  • decompresses many times faster
  • can decompress in place without any extra buffers
Nova9 was mainly designed to allow compression of game data files without performance degration. Most demos, games and commercial applications developed by myself make use of this algorithm.

On the dowload page you can find a Nova9 decompressor that will allow you the extraction of compressed game files.
