File Format Description

Game data file used by some games that utilize Criterion Software's RenderWare engine; often contains audio data although the binary format supports various kinds of game data including models and textures.

RenderWare games that use the ".rws" extension may use a file format specific to the particular game. Therefore, some RWS utilities, such as RWS2WAV, may be able to open a file type that other utilities cannot. Examples of games that use RWS files are Burnout 2: Point of Impact and Broken Sword: The Sleeping Dragon.

NOTE: The RWS extension is not used for all RenderWare games that include RenderWare stream data. For example, Grand Theft Auto games do not use the ".rws" extension, but use the .DFF and .TXD extensions instead.
