Hello, I'm new here and I hope I'll do everything right in this topic ^^"

 

I'm not a DirectX developer, but I'd like to know if someone knows how can I edit (or just view) an .ate file used by a game based on DirectX 3D.

Those files are loaded from a directory and are simple images with alpha layer.

 

I can't open that with photoshop, and on Google I can't find informations about .ate extension... I found something about windows backup extension but I think is not what I'm looking for.

 

I ask here because this game uses DirectX and I hope you know if this is an extension used by DirectX like .DDS

 

Thanks!

It's not a DirectX file format, especially since Microsoft already used it for that Office backup file you mentioned. Probably some custom file format made for the game. Open it with an hex editor maybe you'll be able to extract something and make a custom parser.

Thank you for the info, I think is a bitmap without the header (I've found a bitmapheader.txt in another folder, and some .ate are into a folder called bitmaps), maybe I just need to merge them ^^ 

 

Bye
