Forza Studio 4.0 – Forza Motorsport 3 & 4 Resource Extraction Tool

About
With school now out of the way, I suppose it’s time for me to get my ass in gear and start finishing up the various side-projects I seemed to have accumulated throughout the years. Starting with the one most recently adopted, I present you a semi-finalized version of Forza Studio. Forza Studio 4.0 should now render all previous versions of my Forza-related utilities obsolete. ¬†Any questions can be directed to the comments section of this post and I’ll happily reply to them as soon as I can.

Features
Forza Studio 4.0 now officially supports the viewing and extraction of most cars (.carbin), wheels, brakes, rotors, calipers, tracks (.rmb.bin), and textures (.xds, .bix) from both versions of Forza 3 and Forza 4.

Controls
Its use is fairly straightforward in my opinion. Right-clicking various sections will bring up a context menu specific to that control. When viewing a model in the viewport, use the WASD keys on your keyboard to move the camera position and IJKL to look around. I’ve also included zip extraction functionality that can be found under the utilities menu for those who wish to use it instead of the usual QuickBMS script.

Requirements
.NET Framework 2.0 (or greater)
XNA Framework 3.1 (4.0 is different)
