NuGet Discord

An LZO compression plugin for GBX.NET to allow de/serialization of compressed Gbx bodies. This official implementation uses minilzo 2.06.

The compression logic is split up from the read/write logic to allow GBX.NET 2 library to be distributed under the MIT license, as Oberhumer distributes the open source version of LZO under the GNU GPL v3. Therefore, using GBX.NET.LZO 2 requires you to license your project under the GNU GPL v3, see License.

Gbx header is not compressed and can contain useful information (icon data, replay time, ...), and also many of the internal Gbx files from Pak files are not compressed, so you can avoid LZO for these purposes.


At the beginning of your program execution, you add the Gbx.LZO = new MiniLZO(); to prepare the LZO compression. It should be run only once.

This project example expects you to have <ImplicitUsings>enable</ImplicitUsings>. If this does not work for you, add using System.Linq;.

using GBX.NET;
using GBX.NET.Engines.Game;
using GBX.NET.LZO; // Add this

Gbx.LZO = new MiniLZO(); // Add this ONLY ONCE and before you start using Parse methods

var map = Gbx.ParseNode<CGameCtnChallenge>("Path/To/My.Map.Gbx");

Console.WriteLine($"Block count: {map.GetBlocks().Count()}");

You should not get the LZO exception anymore when you read a compressed Gbx file.


GBX.NET.LZO library is GNU GPL v3 Licensed.

If you use the LZO compression library, you must license your project under the GNU GPL v3.
