winbif bif cbf uncompress extract

WinBif is a small utility program for handling Infinity Engine bif files.
  • View bif file contents, showing the resource name, type, index, locator and offset to data for file and tile entries.
  • Extract single or multiple selections of files stored in bif file to a specified folder.
  • Will try to automatically link to a chitin.key file to read resource name entries for a particular bif file.
  • Filter current list view by resource types.
  • Simulates file names for bif files that don't have a corresponding chitin.key file (or one that can't be located)
  • Opens compressed bifs/cbfs. Supports BIF V1.0 and BIFCV1.0 compression formats, automatically decompressing files as they are opened.
  • Windows explorer shell context menus for opening & extracting bif files.
Thanks to Sam for his help and patience with testing WinBif. Any bugs/problems/issues, please let me know. Also any comments and/or feature requests are welcome. I consider this a 'lite' version, i may get round to doing a more advanced version at some point.

  • v1.0.0.6 Bugfix: Resolved crash related to opening a bif file from explorer.
  • v1.0.0.6 Bugfix: bif opened via command line showed other toolbar buttons that normally are disabled (extract button for example) whilst opening & processing bif, this could allow user to try to extract bif and possibly crash as a result.
