    Hey everyone! I wrote a little front end for VGMStream, so you can easily select or drag and drop files into it and convert them to WAV files.

    You can use this to quickly convert any 3DS BCSTM audio files you drag into it.

    It uses VGMStream, so all this does is just call the exe a bunch of times.

    I apologize if a similar thing has already been made...

    I'd appreciate any feedback and feature requests! Also it's still kind of in alpha, so bugs might be present.

    EFE has been able to convert wav <--> BCSTM since at least early 2015

    EveryFileExplorer could already do this, but this is pretty neat as it converts multiple files at the same time.

    That's mainly why I wanted to make it in the first place, since EFE couldn't do multiple files at the same time.

    Seeing as VGMStream sounds really shit when you convert (like clicks and stuff, bad quality) Why did you make this? Surely it would be better to contribute to EFE and make sure that can do batch as when I convert with them, the audio sounds superb.

    If it's just clicky for me or something please tell me what I am doing wrong.

    That's a good idea actually, I might just migrate this into EFE under like "Tools -> Batch conversion" or something

    Well, I already implemented a scripting engine for EFE, so just adding bcstm conversion to it would work aswell.

    How come you got BCSTM to work and the others failed? What did you use?

    I have no idea. The others could have looked at the source of EFE on github though.

    Haha great app!
    There may already be a way to convert but with this I can shove a whole folder in and it converts all hundred or so files straight away!
    Now I have a (i think its legal if you own the game lol) dump of all the music from Omega Ruby in a format that can be listened to!
    Thanks! :D
