-2)[TEMPORARY WORK-AROUND] DataTool's built-in .wem to .ogg conversion does not work properly when extracting sounds with the GUI (It does work without the GUI). It produces .ogg files which are corrupted and cannot be listened to.

Bugs fixed:

-Output path was not displayed in quotation marks and it would cause problems when folder names had spaces in them.
-Leaving the command output window open and then running a command would not update the command output until it was manually closed and opened again.
-Output path was not counted as a setting and therefore it would not be saved or loaded with other settings.
