WinBif is a small utility program for handling Infinity Engine bif files.
 
Features:
  • 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.

As fearless's website seems to have gone down, here is the latest version I have.  I believe it is Version 1.0.1.2 which is newer than what has been uploaded here at SHS.

I moved WinBif to github as I got rid of the website (not working so had to cut costs).

 

I had planned to open source the whole program at some point, but that would require a rewrite of sorts, as the base libraries I originally used have changed slightly - however the newer versions of those libraries are now on github, although I would consider them work in progress as some stuff hasn't been tested: https://github.com/m...ngineLibraries. And some libraries have been tested though, with little utilities to test the library functions, like TlkViewer: https://github.com/m...rless/TlkViewer and MOSViewer: https://github.com/m...rless/MOSViewer - which required me to start porting some of the libraries to x64 (https://github.com/m...gineLibraries64)

 

Anyhow the last version of WinBif (1.0.1.2) which Sam has linked above is also available from my github page:
