.BSA file extraction for Skyrim modding
Anyone have any suggestions of a good program to extract the .BSA files in Skyrim? I haven't been able to get a copy of BSAopt to work and was wondering if there was something else I could use. Is it possible to extract the files manually? I've been able to use the creation kit to change stats on weapons and place them in game, but I would like to be able to remesh/retexture the items I create and know that in order to do that I need to extract the .BSA files to get to the NIF files. Any help in this would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

you could use FOMM (fallout mod manager) since it works similar to BSAopt. another program i found on the nexus was BSA Unpacker, though i last tried that over a year ago, and don't remember a thing about it

Thanks very much I will give FOMM a try first!

FOMM didn't recognize Skyrim, but BSA Unpacker works perfectly and is very easy to use. Thank you so much!

Oh, my bad. I kind of skimmed through the post.

That's okay for some reason when I downloaded BSAopt from nexus the archive showed a file size of 1kb and said it was corrupted. I tried it several times from multiple servers with the same issue. BSA unpacker works great though, now I'm closer to realizing my sword mod! :)
