1. Introduction
===============================================================================================================================

Hi there.

First, I’m not an English native speaker, sorry about poor English πŸ˜‰

This tool is “Yet Another” audio converter. This tool can convert an audio file such as fuz, xwm, wav, mp3 mutually.
By default, tool can handle fuz and xwm files. By separately download and install the following tools, more sound file formats will be available: Microsoft xWMAEncoder, LAME, FFmpeg

I have not played Fallout4, but perhaps fuze file format is same as skyrim. So it should work with Fallout4 audio files.

ENJOY!!

NOTE: This tool development for skyrim, but probabry also work with Fallout4. So the same file as for skyrim uploaded here as well. Skyrim mod page is here

TO MODERATOR: Please contact if there is a problem with this act (same mods post to multi game pages). I will delete immediately.

===============================================================================================================================
2. Motivation and purpose
===============================================================================================================================

I’m a translator of mod, so convert sound file of mod into a general format (wav, mp3), and playback by Media Player and confirm speech of actors.
For this kind of work, Skyrim Audio Converter by JohnB met comparative requirements. I was using all the way this tool, but often crashed when convert a large number of files.
Therefore I decided to development this tool, serve as the study of the audio files.
So, I want to emphasize that Skyrim Audio Converter gave big inspiration on developing this tool. JohnB, Thank you very much!

3. Major features
===============================================================================================================================

Selection of conversion files:
– Select the file you want to convert using the menu or drag and drop. The selected file will be added to the file list.
– You can select single files, folders, also bsa files. When you select a bsa files, you can handle the audio files that is included in bsa file.
– Use the check box of the file list, you can choose the file you want to convert.

Conversion of audio files:
– By default, you can convert between fuz and xwm. Also handled lip file.
– If you install Microsoft xWMAEncode, you can convert between xwm and wav.
– If you install LAME, you can convert between wav and mp3.
– If you install FFmpeg, you can convert between wav and general audio formats (mp3, ogg, flac, aiff, etc.).
– Converted files can be output to the same as input folder, or the specified folder.
– When the conversion using the FFmpeg, you can change sound volume. (v1.0.1 feature)

User Interface:
– Convenient file list. Audio files are categorized depending on the status. The success of the conversion, or whether lip file exists is obvious. Of course, you can also sort the list in your favorite conditions.
– Without complicated settings of audio conversion tool-specific, can be easily converted by default settings.
– Only necessary conversion settings are dynamically displayed.
– To merge xwm file and lip file to fuz file is very easy. You can includes the same name of the lip file in the same folder as the xwm file.
– Multi-language support. Currently supports English and Japanese. If you modify the resource files, can support another language.

Performance:
– ListView of Windows (.NET?) is very slow and buggy, So I was as much as possible tweak and tuning.
– Conversion process is multiplexed by the multi-process, multi-thread. Depending on your CPU, you can also change the multiplicity in the UI.

9. Notes / Limitation / Known issues
===============================================================================================================================

– There may be a bug in this tool. Please be sure to MAKE A BACKUP of the original audio files.

– Bad English. I’m not an English native speaker. Improvement suggestion of the sentences is a welcome.

– Conversion result depends on the external tools. Depending on the combination of options chosen in the UI, may become the error by a external commands. Please refer to the command log that displayed in the log window.

– If the number of lines of log window is too large, it will affect performance. Please clear it regularly.

– I have priority to the stability and usability, so conversion performance may not be said to be the best. But practicality is considered good enough.

– ListView of Windows (.NET?) is very slow and buggy, So I was as much as possible tweak and tuning. But I have not tested with any OS. Once if the file list is no longer being re-drawn, show “About” dialog (File – About menu). This should be reset. If such a problem occurs frequently, please report to Nexus page.

– It is free to enjoy the converted files private, but if you want to distribute or publish audio files to other people, please be aware of the copyright of music.

– ba2 file is not supported. I don’t know the format of ba2 file, and not yet purchased Fallout4.
