You may want zlib: http://www.zlib.net/

I believe the Quake series of games used zlib for packet compression (on top of their own delta compression in the case of Quake 3, if I remember correctly).

Subject: [ENet-discuss] Compression algorithm


I'm currently thinking of what compression algorithm would be best to implement into a ENet based game?
Compression algorithms like ZIP would couse to much overhead. Algorithms like ZIP are designed for compressing huge files and not small network packets. What algorithm can be used for this?
What are you guys using in your projects?

Thanks for your help!
