CategoryGame Files
File Format Description

Game data file used by the Midtown Madness and Midtown Madness 2 racing games; stores data referenced by the game in a compressed format; includes in-game menus, car models, textures, tracks, and 3D objects.

AR files are referenced by the Midtown Madness games and are not meant to be opened manually. However, the contents of AR files can be extracted using a third-party utility, such as deAR for the original Midtown Madness and deAR2 for Midtown Madness 2. They may also be extracted using a Zip decompression utility since they are saved in the .ZIP format.
