Basic Customizing Tools

These are all the utilities you need to download to get started editing Infinity Engine games. These files will allow you to extract the data files out of the large BIF files and edit them individually to aide in making new things or to learn how things were made in the games originally as well as allowing you to edit items (*.itm files), spells (*.spl files) and stores/inns/taverns/temples/containers (*.sto files).

Note also that the exporting and importing features of these editors are for allowing you to share your creations with people. You do NOT need to export/import for your new creations to work on your own machine. Exporting attaches the texts (names and descriptions) to the ITM/SPL/STO files so that when another person imports the files (*.tbg files...yes, tbg means TeamBG File) the ITM/SPL/STO file will get automatically placed inside their game's "Override" folder and the texts (names and descriptions) will get inserted into their game properly. Without this process, your custom files will NOT have any names/descriptions on any other machine.

NOTE: IAP files are used to package many TBG files and other non exported files into one file so that the person who downloads a package only needs to do a single import action. Please use IAP's where you have a package containing more than one file. ALSO...*always* ZIP your files so that web browsers won't mess up the files or their names (which can happen if you put up normally unknown file types for download...zips are common and safe).

TBG = TeamBG Exported File
IAP = Infinity Add-on Patcher File

TeamBG VB6 Package

DLL and OCX files required for our utilities written in VB6 (msvbvm60.dll, other dll's and ocx's).

You cannot use any other VB6 DLL pack, this is a pack containing the DLL's and OCX's we use at TeamBG, other packs may not have all of the files we use.

WinBiff v1.2.2

This tool will allow extraction from biff files or making new biff files and has been tested on BG2, BG1 and IWD (it should also work for PST). Using this program for anything other than extracting data files from biff files is an advanced activity and you should be sure to make backups before trying...this biff creation and editing functionality is meant for MODs and NOT item packs or other minor downloads (as there still needs to be a way for people to get texts...thus use TBG and IAP files for this still). Now you can add replacement files in new BIF's as well as extract from CBF or BFC files. Additionally there is a BIF sharing file format that can be distributed with a new BIF to allow another user to use WinBiff to import the new BIF index data into their KEY file.

Note: WinBiff now has two modes of use.

IWD players should be able now to use the program properly too.

IAP SFX Creator v1.1

This utility allows you to create normal IAP's as well as self-extracting IAP's. IAP's can be loaded or created from scratch and can then be converted to a self-extracting archive. There's no need for another program anymore to import them into a game install. Everything needed will be done by the SFX program.

Uninstall support is now available to uninstall addons. TXT and RTF files can be chosen now to auto-launch after installation. Users can choose to create Start Menu items for an uninstall link as well as readme files for their addon (Auto-launched TXT and RTF files are used for this).

Note that this tool will not work with NPC TBG (*-n.tbg) files at this time.
