    Hi guys! I've got something I'd like to share with you that we will benefit greatly from: UESP's EsoExtractData tool. This tool was created and developed by UESP's founder, Dave. He's recently explained to me how to use it and all credit goes to him. The reason behind this quick guide is the hard time I had following UESP's tutorial. While this is in no way criticism, I would like to simplify it so more people will be able to utilize this great tool.

    The tool essentially allows you to unpack ESO's game files and access all the content inside of it—similar to a BSA unpacker but more complex. In this guide, I will simply show you how to access the files. The rest is up to you. Let's start!

    1. Download EsoExtractData from UESP.
    2. Create a folder somewhe…

    Hi all, I wanted to share a very fast method of getting item images for , and .


    1. BSA Browser
    2. NifSkope 2.0
    3. Adobe Photoshop, or GIMP
    4. Morrowind, Oblivion or Skyrim
    BSA Browser

    Start by downloading the BSA browser from the previously shared link. Download it by selecting the "Download (Manual)" button. A file titled "BSA Browser-59553-1-4-2.exe" should start downloading. After it's finished download, install the BSA browser through the installer (the .exe file), and follow the steps provided by the installer.

    Unpacking a BSA file

    BSA files, or "Bethesda Software Archive" files, are essentially compressed archives that contain vast amount of resources. (IE, textures, meshes, etc.) To access the resources inside, we'll have to unpack them. For the item ima…

    Hi everyone, I realize there's already a blog on how to extract audio files. But I'd like to share a method which I personally found a lot easier.


    • The Skyrim Creation Kit, which is free if you own Skyrim on Steam.
    • A BSA Unpacker.
    • The Yakitori Audio Converter

    • Start the Creation Kit
    • Select File and Data...
    • Double click Skyrim.esm, Dawnguard.esm, Dragonborn.esm or HearthFires.esm. Select Set as Active File when wanting to open a DLC .esm file.

    Let's say I'm looking for a piece of dialogue said by Ulfric. In this case, I want the specific piece of dialogue "We're ready to march on Solitude, but the Emperor's cousin is getting married!".

    • Select Edit and Find Text.

    A little screen will pop up, looking like this;


    • In the Search text bar, type; We're ready to march on Solitude,…

    • Get the Oblivion Construction Set
    • Get a BSA Unpacker

    • Start the Construction Set.
    • Select 'File' and 'Data...'
    • Double click 'Oblivion.esm', 'DLCShiveringIsles.esp' or 'Knights.esp'. It depends on the audio you're looking for. With the DLC, however, don't forget to select Set as Active File in the bottom left of the Data screen.

    Note: Importing the data may take a while, give it some time.


    Alright, let's say I'm looking for dialogue from an Oblivion character named 'Pinarus Inventius' His article says he's an Imperial, so that's where we'll be looking first.

    • Select 'Actor', 'NPC' and 'Imperial'.
    • Select 'Imper…
