How Do We Extract Bar Files?

The normal AoE3 bar extractor does not work.
Neither does the Age of Empires Online bar extractor.


AoE3ED doesn’t work?
I hope they provide some new official tools for this if it doesn’t.

by the way do the xmb files convert to xml?

I have not seen any .xmb files, only .xml files

You´d need a new bar extractor and XMB is also changed.
The old CC tools do not work on these.

Hi, if this is still of interest, VladTheJr has created a tool that is compatiable with AOE3DE. Resource Manager - Viewing, comparing, creating and extracting files from Age of Empires III .BAR archive
