Notes about the BIF file extension:



Incorrect file associations could be the result of underlying issues within your PC system. As such it is highly recommended to scan your PC for invalid registry entries, unused processes and other unfavourable system settings to identify slowdown issues.

The BIF file type is primarily associated with 'BioWare Infinity Engine' by BioWare Corp.. This is a simple archive format, used both to simplify organization of the files, as well as to group together entire areas. Some BIF files are grouped together because of common functionality; for instance, all the .DLG files are gathered together into a single BIF file in Planescape: Torment. Other BIF files, such as AR4800.BIF represent the entirety of an area's terrain (i.e. not its containers, actors, or items). The file is often indexed by .KEY file. The program WinBiff is a tool to extract data from these files. This file format is used by many different games. It sometimes comes with a .BIFF file extension.

  • WordPerfect (Binary Information File) by Corel CorporationWordPerfect for Windows 6.x used a binary information file (BIF) for storing information. The BIF file was prone to becoming corrupted, and was less capable than the Windows 95 Registry, so starting with WordPerfect for Windows 7 under Win 95, WordPerfect itself no longer used the BIF file. Instead, it stored settings information in the Windows Registry. Later versions of PerfectScript still included commands to write to and read from a BIF file.
