BFRES Wii U to Switch Converter
A Modding Tool for The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild (Switch)
Fix material animation saving for some BFRES files.
Add support for converting bounding trees to normal boundings.
An automatic BFRES converter to convert Wii U models, animations and textures to Switch. If you plan to post these conversions, please make sure you have the proper permissions from the original author of the mod to do so.
Supports converting from files with .bfres and .sbfres.
Files will output to the SwitchConverted folder. Note: Switch to Wii U does not work yet!
For textures with mipmaps, you must include .Tex2.sbfres aswell! These are either in the game update's Model folder or the Pack files like Pack/TitleBG.pack or Pack/Dungeon###.pack if it's a dungeon.
Also very important, make sure you adjust the RSTB table if you get invisible models or crashes. Some mods require this to be edited.
If editing the RSTB crashes, you may need to alter the decompressed file size of the mod. Switch handles resources differently than Wii U so it's difficult to automatically convert mods with size alterations due to this issue.
Currently supports BOTW. Plan to add more supported games in the future.
Excellent tool, used it to convert the Zelda's Ballad .sbfres files and the .bitemico files. Is there some method to convert .sbactorpack files I'm not aware of? I'm not sure the mod will function without them. Google's not being much help.
Nevermind. So much is broken and I just. Nope.
Just gonna have to wait for them to convert it to Switch which they dont seem super eager about doing. Still have no idea why there is a modding scene for the Wii U at all, Switch version's been out for years now. Get with the program guys.
Hey, thanks for the tool but I'm running into an issue: When I try to convert both .sbfres and .Tex1.sbfres (for example Armor_009.sbfres and Armor_009.Tex1.sbfres), the tool doesn't touch the .Tex1.sbfres file so what should I do?
I tried to rename it into Tex.sbfres and that obviously make my game crashes all the time when I try to equip said armor xd
