This tutorial will teach you how to convert Wwise sound files used by Overwatch into Ogg files.

Software Needed


  • An audio player capable of playing Ogg files, such as Winamp.


  1. Follow the Extracting Tutorial to pull out all of the files from the 03F folder for music and sound effects, and/or the 0B2 folder for voices. I'll be pulling out the 0B2 files and putting them into F:\Overwatch\Data.
  2. Extract ww2ogg024.zip into it's own folder.
  3. Copy ww2ogg.exe and packed_codebooks_aoTuV_603.bin into your 0B2 folder.
  4. Copy the revorb.exe into your 0B2 folder.
  5. Click the address bar for your 0B2 folder, and type cmd. Alternatively, open your Start Menu, type cmd, press enter, then type f:, then cd F:\Overwatch\Data\files\0B2
  6. In your command window, type for /f "delims=" %f in ('dir /s/b/a-d "*.wem" "*.03F" "*.0B2"') do (ww2ogg.exe --pcb packed_codebooks_aoTuV_603.bin "%f").
  7. When those files finish processing, type for /f "delims=" %f in ('dir /s/b/a-d "*.ogg"') do (revorb.exe "%f").
  8. Enjoy your converted Ogg files!

Batch file method

Alternatively, you can write both step 6 and 7 into a batch file. It would look like this:

@echo off

for /f "delims=" %%f in ('dir /s/b/a-d "*.wem" "*.03F" "*.0B2"') do (ww2ogg.exe --pcb packed_codebooks_aoTuV_603.bin "%%f")
for /f "delims=" %%f in ('dir /s/b/a-d "*.ogg"') do (revorb.exe "%%f")

echo Job Complete!

Save that into batch.bat and double-click it to process it.


Problem Solution
I'm getting some Parse errors at the end! This is normal. The files in question are the exe files and other files we copied in earlier. These files don't contain Wwise sounds in them, so naturally, the program wouldn't be able to parse them.
