There is another utility to convert a .fex file to .bin, available as binary executable only. This page has a link to it:

This has a Ruby script to convert the other way: It's obviously some trivial conversion, so I wonder why no one has bothered writing a script for .fex to .bin, rather than rely on the binary...

"Amery has just finished a tool for .fex to .bin and it is in his git repo.
