What is a CSB file?

A CSB file is an audio file used by Street Fighter IV, an arcade-style fighting game available for Windows, and the game's various variant editions. It contains background music that is played in the game. CSB files are located in Street Fighter IV's bgm folder.

More Information

Street Fighter IV, Super Street Fighter IV, Super Street Fighter IV Arcade Edition, and Ultra Street Fighter IV are all versions of the fourth entry in Capcom's Street Fighter franchise. Released in 2008, Street Fighter IV is available for a variety of gaming platforms, including Windows.

Windows-based Street Fighter IV players can explore the game's files and investigate the images, music, sound effects, and other resources used to show objects and play sounds in-game. In Street Fighter IV's SFIV/​bgm folder, players will find several CSB files. These files contain the background music played in the game. For example, the file BGM_MAIN.csb contains the music that plays over the game's main menu.

Each CSB file contains an AAX file and two encoded .ADX files. The first ADX file contains a song's unique, introductory measures, and the second ADX file contains the portion of the song that loops as long as a player remains in a menu or stage. Enterprising Street Fighter IV players have created programs to decode, edit, and convert CSB files to other audio formats.

Common CSB Filenames

BGM_MAIN.csb - Contains music that plays over Street Fighter IV's main menu.

BGM_SELECT.csb - Contains music that plays over the game's character select screen.

BGM_TFP.csb - Contains music that plays during the game's end credits.

How to open a CSB file

You can open CSB files and play the music they contain in Goshanes' Street Fighter IV Audio Manager (Windows). You can also use Street Fighter IV Audio Manager to convert the ADX files a CSB file contains into .WAV files, so they can be played in most popular media players.
