I can't name this as "information". It's just obvious things. I spent probably 2 FULL days trying to locate code which reads b2index file, but without any success. Delayed research to better times - when I'll be young again and will have a lot of free time Smiley

Would it be possible to look into making UE Viewer work for Gears 5? I figure there might've been development changes / new insights for UE Viewer to possibly extract the assets from Gears 5.

At the moment I can't consider spending any more time with this game. I can't "guess" file formats used there, but doing full research would require fully unprotected and still working game exe file.

Gears Tactics also uses the exact same format as Gears 5 and they both use oodle mermaid. And as far as I know, It doesn't have eac. Working on the Gears Tactics steam version might be an option. Also, I managed to decompress some of the files in the b2container archives with some info that I don't know how accurate is, and the files are somehow odd. I can send some sample files if anyone wants.

Already tried Tactics last Summer, it has the same protection.

Yes, unless some hacker will remove the protection/encryption from exe, and make the game functional with this executable. Otherwise I'll need to spend months just to dig inside the file format used there.
