Tiberian Sun Save Game Format

1 post in this topic

Does anyone have any details about the save game format for Tiberian Sun?  From a brief look it has an outer container that's loosely based on the FAT file-system, with file names such as:

  • Root Entry,
  • SummaryInformation,
  • Scenario Description,
  • Player House,
  • Version,
  • Internal Version,
  • Start Time,
  • Last Save Time,
  • Play Time,
  • Executable Name,
  • Player Name,
  • Player Name2,
  • Scenario Number,
  • Campaign,
  • GameType,
  • CONTENTS

Some really wide Google searches around these various terms doesn't bring up anything of relevance.  In all the years since it was released, has no-one made any progress with this?

More than happy to carry on poking around to break out more details, but I don't want to be duplicating someone else's effort.

Any insights appreciated.  Thanks in advance.

      Back in February, GVMERS posted a video that looked at what happened to the cancelled Tiberium FPS. Today, they have new Command & Conquer video that dives into the entire franchise. The Command & Conquer franchise helped shape the identity of RTS games during the 1990's and would influence the designs of countless similar strategy titles in later years. Even though the franchise ended with a whimper instead of a bang, it managed to create an indelible impact on the history of videogames. Join the team from GVMERS as they take a look at the rise and fall of Command & Conquer.

      In this week's Throwback Thursday, we continue with the "Ladies of C&C" series. Oxanna Kristos from C&C Tiberian Sun, played by Monika Schnarre, brought the "Nod blonde" trope to the Tiberium universe, which was started by Nadia Zelenkov from the first Red Alert. During Nod's trying times, Oxanna infiltrated Hassan's propaganda machine, seen in her involvement in the morbid "Today's Execution" live television show. However, she remained loyal to the Black Hand and Kane himself, rescuing Anton Slavik from his death sentence and joining him on the Montauk. She was as ruthless as she was seductive, showing contempt for the Forgotten, causing Jake McNeil to defect to Nod, and even killing her former TV colleague on air.

      Remember, you can click on the preview to see a larger and more detailed image. Don't forget to check out the Throwback Thursdays archives if you've missed a week. Check back again next Thursday for another Throwback. Send in your ideas for future instalments.
