GDB Dump by sven (on old forum...)
to dump gdb files
you will need some HEX-editor to edit gdb
and this dump file -- it's something like a map
use: drag&drop files on .bat file and select dump method

GDBEditor by Keshire
to edit gdb files directly
use: should be placed in the same directory as gdb file
it's simple way to edit gdb files, but it's not showing all hashes, so something you can't edit with it
you can write string to find some element, but best way is use hash directly like #65D9C904

Loopy is created weapons info list (see attachment Fable3WeaponModification.ods) you will need OpenOffice to open it
it may be very useful if you want mod weapons

I've started writing a new gdb tool. I've uploaded the source to github.

v0.01

Something that will need to be done is being able to load both multiple .gdb and .save files. They share objects and Strings between them all, including hierarchy (parents and children can be located in other files). That's one of the reasons that a lot of these objects are missing names (as seen from the screenshot above).

gdb dumper got around this by just reusing the name of a previous object that had a name if they share a template. "Position" = (x,y,z,parent) for example.

Getting there

Once I get multiple file loading, and .save loading I'll put up a new version here. Or you can compile it yourself from github now.

I've always kinda suspected it, there's also probably a header file that we don't have. Because there's a lua FNVHash function used every once in awhile in the scripts and I doubt they want to load up whatever gdb thing they use to track down an object.

That's always a possibility. I'll take a look and make sure it's not set to 32 bit or something.

Edit: yep, default to .net 4.6.1 and prefered 32bit.

Try this one.

Lazy loading hierarchy to prevent stack overflow on global.gdb from circular parenting....
Opens multiple gdbs (does not cross reference objects or hashes yet)
.net 4.6.1 x64

v0.03
.save loading into string list (see above image)
Cross referencing labels (not objects yet)
Object and label search filter (again, see above image)
.net 4.6.1 x64

I'm getting closer to the point where we can edit data.
Adding new items will be an issue until I know what the 2 bytes are for that seem to be separating everything into folders or categories.
