Thank you for this awesome contribution, but im having trouble figuring out how to get access to the assets, scripts or even editor (if included), but i really cant open anything.
Im using udk 2013 and the only thing that comes to mind was go to the CookedXbox360 folder and try to open those files in udk. For some reason udk does appear to open stuff(but they are not shown in the content browser,no name of folder or package,nothing).I also tried to change the .xxx extension of the packages to .upk but the same thing.

So do I have to use udk 2011-09 which is the September build or what am I missing?

Thank you again.

In order to open through editor launch ‘Unreal Frontend’ in this directories, by default select pc target and launch editor it work for me.

For some reason im missing something or probably not doing it right so here is step by step of what I did.Please correct me when you have the time, for me to see where im making the mistake.

1:Unrar everything and I placed the folder named GoW3land XBOX_20120514I790FG in C>UDK (where I have my other separate udk builds installed)

2:You say to open the editor trough launch Unreal Front end, but the the extracted folder GoW3land XBOX_20120514I790FG in its Binaries directory only has 1 file and that is called

So i copy the content from Binaries folder of a random UDK build i have at hand and pasted it in the Binaries folder of GoW3land XBOX_20120514I790FG.(not overwriting the file ).

3:Than I launched the Unreal Front End(here is a screenshot) ,

and I only pressed the Launch Unreal Ed button and nothing happens.I get a message below that says
Starting win32 GearGame.exe editor but nothing happens.

Now in WIN32 folder I do have a UDK exe and not a GearGame exe so I renamed the UDK exe to GearGame but its still the same.

I think i made this more complicated that it should be.

Could you please share step by step from unraring to opening the editor (when you have the time) how you opened the gears editor?


Thank yor !!! :slightly_smiling_face: :slightly_smiling_face: :slightly_smiling_face:

I finished downloading everything but there are problems.After extracting everything from the rars
it looks like the file UnrealEngine3_[2011-01-24_02.00].7z.001 is missing.
Also are these 7zip files?
Keehoon_Ahn, did you managed to download it and open the gears editor?
