WinBiff v1.2.2 by Theo 578kb Download
This tool allows for extraction from biff files or making new biff files and has been tested with 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. The 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.

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.
