  • MB - model format, unlike PB it is unpacked
  • AB - animation format, some models have it unpacked, usually in the same folder as MB model
  • TB - textures format container, has TMX textures inside it

Tools[edit]

PB 3DS MAX importer[edit]

TGE created a maxscript that's intended to be used with Autodesk 3DS MAX. It supports importing PB, MB meshes, rigging, materials. You can get it here.
Skinning or texturing information may not always be perfectly retained and models may require manual tweaking.

DDS3-Model-Studio[edit]

DDS3-Model-Studio (or DDS3ModelConverter) is a tool for converting skinned models to formats such as DAE, OBJ, FBX.
Rigging and mesh/texture conversion is currently possible. You can download the latest build here or get a version that includes DniweTamp's windows .bat script for mass converting of PB and MB models to all three formats, DAE, OBJ and FBX, here.
