Note that a new repack for the frictional games is available here:

All the games were merged in one folder, making the game smaller (many DDS, TGA and ogg files were removed since Amnesia, Soma, Penumbra and the custom stories were using common files). If you are experiencing problems you can tell me. It was pretty difficult because those games were not intended to be used like this.
Compared to the previous repack, which was already 4Gb smaller than the original games (essentially due to the removal of the cache files), Roughly 10 000 files were removed or 2 Gb. This was done using Duplicate Cleaner and Notepad++ (but the repack is only 400 mb smaller due to its compression).
If you already had the former repack, this one is really better. I'm sure that shadow.97 and humbert will enjoy it.

Note that a smaller repack for Amnesia Rebirth is available (only 7.80 Gb).
If you are interested, the link is here:

Many Duplicate files as well as unused files were removed (The game is roughly 500 mb smaller once installed).

For those who are playing Soma and Penumbra on the forum (I think of shadow.97 or Vasudev) , note that new modifications were made here:
https://www.nomaher.com/forum/index.php?topic=833.msg34947#msg34947
In all likelihood, there will not be any new versions.
New size: 7.35 Gb.

Maybe some users of the forum have played Resident Evil 2 remake. I remind you that it's available here:
https://www.nomaher.com/forum/index.php?topic=833.msg35352#msg35352

The version above is compatible with directx 11. And I'm aware that Resident Evil 2, 3, and 7 recently received updated versions on PC which are DirectX 12-only.
For several reasons the repack of RE2 remake won't be updated.
First and foremost, the repack would be bigger. Most importantly, there are several issues with the new versions:
- the update prevented some users from playing the games (those who don't have a recent graphics card?)
- the update breaks existing mods and causes a host of performance problems.
In this context, Capcom even brought back the DirectX-11 version of RE2 on its website.

Given the fact that getting a new graphics card at a reasonable price has become next to impossible, I'm not surprised they'd go back to the older DX-11 version. I've noticed the price has leveled off a bit, but it remains high.
