Hello,

 

PBO Viewer is an open-source project to interact with PBO files. It is a substitute for the old Pbo Manager that everyone knows.

Moreover, PBO Viewer is the only cross-platform PBO tool with a graphic interface. A CLI interface is also available.

 

Features:

  • Cross-platform support: works on Linux, macOS, and Windows thanks to .Net 5
  • No dependencies needed, everything is shipped in the .zip
  • PBO pack / unpack
  • Add file or folder, delete file or folder, rename file or folder, copy file or folder, and open file directly in a PBO
  • File Explorer graphic interface
  • Windows integration (right-click menu, double click to open a PBO file)

 

This project uses a modified version of PBO Sharp: https://github.com/Paton7/PBOSharp

You can find the project here on GitHub: https://github.com/SteezCram/PboViewer

The binaries are here: https://github.com/SteezCram/PboViewer/releases

 

I hope you will enjoy my project. You can open an issue, start it if you like it or create a pull request to improve it!

Nice! I just tried it out and looks really good. I really like to open pbos without having to unpack them 🙂 I also left some comments over on GitHub 😉

I think you copied the dot after the URL. I have removed it!

Works very well. Keep up the good work. 

 

With the demise of Armaholic today, the stock of this app has risen.

 

Try and find a simple PBO manager with a GUI on the internet from a trusted source.

I tried to use this tool so I checked all the checkboxes in the settings menu, and I still have nothing when I right click on a pbo 

even after a reboot 

and I don't have the icon on my files

Hello, it should launch a batch in administration mode. You need to accept it to have the effect since I don't provide any installer to do it.

yeah but when I say "yes" to start the batch in admin mode, nothing happens

If you have already PBO Manager installed, it can cause some conflicts, you can find the batch, modify it to never close it, execute it through the CMD, and see if you already the registry key and confirm.

 

If I remember I change my .bat to erase all the previous registry keys. But they will be available in a future version. I will also complete the wiki too 🙂

Hello, a new version is available,

 

The new version of PBO Viewer brings some fixes, MD5 hash support, and a home button. An installer is now available on Windows.

I have also repair the OS integration for Windows, I have forgotten to include some DLL.

 

The link is here: https://github.com/SteezCram/PboViewer/releases/tag/v1.4.2

Hello,

 

Having issues unpacking the pbo from missions I have made.

 

it is adding this to the start of the mission.sqm and it should not be there or at least commented out. Problem is the ediotr will not open the file and lists the errors below.

 

sable random button and shortcut keys
LARs_overrideVA_random = 1;

 

 

it is not adding the end of the file either and cuts it off. Example below

 

};
            class Item112
            {
                linkID=112;
                item0=4129;
                item1=4113;
                class Cu

 

it is missing this last part to end the file

 

class CustomData
                {
                    type="Sync";
                };
            };

        };

    };

 

I would love to use this as Mikeros tools have crapped the bed and no longer work no matter what i do.

 

thanks!
