Converting .bcwav files to viewable formats
#1
Hello, first off, I'd like to say this is my first post on VGResource, so if I'm breaking any rules in this post, I apologize and I would greatly appreciate it if you please let me know what I have done wrong.

I am attempting to upload audio files for a 3DS game to the Sounds Resource, and I have successfully obtained access to the location of the audio files, the only problem is that all the files are in .bcwav format, and despite my efforts of searching for a resource on this site and others, I cannot seem to find a way to convert .bcwav files to a viewable format, such as .mp3, .wav, or .ogg. The closest thing I have to a solution is the Foobar2000 program, which I do not know how to use. 

If you happen to know a solution, please answer it on this thread.


Thank you in advance!

You can use Foobar2000 and vgmstream Smile

EDIT: Never mind, I'm dumb. Tongue I just read your post where you said you don't know how.

I'll try to explain:

Foobar is like a Winamp of sorts: If you have VGMstream as a plugin, do File -> Add files/Folder, and select your bcwavs or the folder that has them. You'll get a list of supported files, being your bcwav's. Find the ones you want by playing them back, right-click'em and hit Convert, and choose WAV in the list of formats. VGMstream for Foobar is here:

https://www.foobar2000.org/components/vi..._vgmstream

Just click the download link and hit "open with Foobar2000".

It's that easy. Wink

Thank you! 

But how do I use them? Whenever I try to load a bcwav file in foobar2000, I get an error stating that the program doesn't support .bcwav files, and there doesn't appear to be anywhere to input files in vgmstream, or am I supposed to use them in conjunction? If so, how?
