Asset Browser

Live archive explorer

What is the Asset Browser?

The Asset Browser is used to navigate, search and filter Cyberpunk 2077 game files so you can transfer these to the Project Explorer. The Asset Browser eliminates the need for uncooking the entire game installation, as individual files can be pulled directly from archive files.

Where is it?

In the default view (as of 8.11), you will find it pinned to the right side of the viewport.

If it isn't there, check the View menu and make sure that it's enabled.

Using the Asset Browser

Wolvenkit Search has its own sub-page: Wolvenkit Search: Finding files

The left-side breadcrumb navigator can be used to quickly navigate through game directories. Game files are displayed in the right-side panel, in addition to folders. Folders in the file list can also be navigated by double-clicking.

Mod Browser

You can switch the Asset Browser to Mod Browsing mode via button. The search will no longer consider base game files and search in your loaded .archives instead.

Adding files to projects

  • Double-click files to add them directly to the Project Explorer

  • To select multiple files hold shift and then left click two separate files. These two files and all files between them will be selected. Right-click any of the highlighted files to open the context menu. Then choose Add Selected Item(s) to Project.

Files added to the Project Explorer with the Asset Browser will not include external buffer files. Buffers are stored within the main file.

Context Menu

As of 8.11.1, the context menu has the following entries:

Add selected items to project

See Adding files to projects above

Open without adding to project

What it says — you can browse a file in the File Editor without adding it to your project. Saving (Hotkey: Ctrl+S) lets you save it to disk, though.

Find used files

Will make the Asset Browser display a list of everything your current file is linking to.

Find files using this

Like Find used files, but the opposite: will make the Asset Browser display a list of everything that links to your current file.

Browse to asset folder

Will navigate the asset browser to the current selection's path in the game files (if it is a game file).

Copy Relative Path

Copies the selection's relative path to clipboard.
