How to open BMS files

Did your computer fail to open a BMS file? We explain what BMS files are and recommend software that we know can open or convert your files.

What is a BMS file?

We know of 2 different uses of the BMS file type, one of them being QuickBMS script. Read the details below.

The BMS file extension indicates to your device which app can open the file. However, different apps may use the same file extension for different types of data. So a BMS opener may not be able to open all kinds of BMS files. In this case, look through both formats to make sure you find the best suited BMS viewer.

QuickBMS script

These BMS files are archive files created in QuickBMS, a tool used for faster file extracting and importing, archiving, and file format parser. QuickBMS uses minimal GUI (Graphical User Interface) if you run a program normally (Double-clicking the file) or by using a command-line. This is a faster program when it comes to handling archives used by the majority of games.
