Welcome to the XentaxWiki,
the file format library that anyone can edit.
We currently document over 1,167 formats.
This wiki is the home of the most game (archive) file format knowledge in the world.

We are back after an attack on our site. There is lots of information online once again.

You can also try searching for the game name or file extension using the search box in the top-right corner.

The main section is Game Resource Archive Formats, where you'll find detailed specifications of archive formats for an extraordinarily large number of games, a list that grows as new games are released, and old ones rediscovered.

Remember that this is a wiki, so if you have any corrections or additional information then please join the team and share it with the world!

  • December 2010: Back after an attack

We suffered an attack on our site months ago that rendered this wiki to be killed. We had to resort to older backups (much older) to be able to get it back online. We have now the latest Mediawiki code and will build on it to make it become what it once was.
