Black Book Browser  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)
Version: 4.2.0
by: sirinsidiator [More]
A windows program to browse and extract files from the ESO game data archives (only works for the new format introduced in Update 5.3). May or may not contain bugs. Use this program at your own risk.

Simply start bbb.exe, click the big blue plus button on the bottom left and select the game install directory (containing the depot, game and vo_* folders).
The arrow keys can be used to quickly navigate file trees and search results, space can be used to toggle checkboxes in the extract dialog, ctrl+1/2/3 switches tabs in the main navigation and ctrl+f also goes to the search tab.

Short History:
v1 - An unreleased node.js program called "esoextract" written between the last beta and early access in 2014.
v2 - Still unreleased, but switched to nwjs in 2017 for better ease of use.
v3 - Rewrote it in TypeScript and implemented a proper UI. First public release under the name "Black Book Browser" in 2020.
v4 - Rewrote pretty much everything again using ionic-svelte and tauri, after v3 was broken beyond repair and could no longer extract files from eso.mnf starting with live version 9.3.9 and pts version 10.0.1.

The source code can be found on GitHub.
v4.2.0
- added button to open the target folder to the extraction dialog
- added ignore pattern option to the extraction dialog

- added file search
- added file list display and save button to archives and folders

v3.0.1
- added tooltip to "Add Game" button to explain which folder to select
- changed filenames for unmapped files without an id to use hex notation for the offset

- updated dependencies

Did you check the eso.mnf file? The /esoui/art/icon folder is located in there. It's more than 250MB in 30k files, so they probably didn't want to weight down the game.mnf with something that rarely changes.
Thank you so much! It works! I was confused that it not displayed in search results.
Search results only include already loaded mnf files, because it takes a while to open eso.mnf and I was too lazy to make additional UI to choose which archives to include on the search screen.

No longer works

Hello! I'm assuming this isn't supported anymore, but I prefer this over other datamining tools and I'd love if a fix could be made.
As of this recent PTS cycle, trying to scan the depot\eso.mnf of the PTS results in the following error:

"The value of "offset" is out of range. It must be > = 0 and < = 26961360. Received 285217326"

I understand if this isn't in your to-do list, but I'd really appreciate being able to use this great tool still!
