    Try Every File Explorer. Also it might depend on the game. I had to do extensive research to extract Bravely Default's files (one of the tools had even been removed from the forum for some reason).

    every file explorer seems like it can understand the files, i can see the textures and see export and import options too. looks good for now, ill see if i can replace a resource and recompile the game and if it works.

    no, not EFE but there is a tool that decompresses .bin, lz.bin etc. but it's built for "fire emblem if" only. I didn't know that so I removed the link and just put -snip- since I linked you to a tool that wouldn't work for these game files.
