FC5 just came out, but it seems to use a different version of the fat and dat format than Watch Dogs (the only (kind of) Dunia Engine game I've modded). I was hoping somebody would be up to reverse engineering them, as I have no clue how (-:

Thanks,

I recently dig through the archives and found some information from the new header format of models and file names that are packed into the .dat archive.
  The .xbg header is HSEMG, but unfortunately the importers of the previous headlight parts can not import the .xbg file.
https://drive.google.com/open?id=1WIM6gC09LD11Y6a7YQVZfNfDc4ZixxpY Here is a model from FC5, got from igepack.dat
From one archive it is possible to extract a picture of the map editor by hex by hex, so far everything has been able to find out about this.
Sorry for my clumsy English =)

I can not say exactly which file format, but I'm sure that it's the same as in the other version of FC...


So, as in FC Primal you need a database of files in xml

Unfortunately, I do not know the skill in hex, but I understand some of it, I was convinced that the unpacker FC Primal unpacks the archives of FC5, but at some stage unpacks it crashes, the contents of the files show, but there is no structure in the hex). Game downloaded via torrent

In the Visual Studio 2017 compilation is not possible, only as for educational purposes.
source IGE.WPF.Core64.dll: https://drive.google.com/open?id=15OnWUQX6xdV9meyIjzcLZkVwB0IQ5GiS

The names of the database can be found through hex, but for now I was able to find (хbt/bin), the names of the models themselves (.xbg) are hard to find for me, because some lines are not valid letters, but they can be appended, since most of them are repeated, an example (_textures \ folder\*.xbg/xbt).

Rewrote a small list of data (*.fcb) files.
The archive itself weighs 10.6 GB
