File Format Description

File used by Fallout 1 and 2, which are two installments of the post-apocalyptic open world video game series; contains character and item dialogues and in-game messages that are referenced when interacting with characters and items during gameplay.

MSG files are located in the text\english\dialog and text\english\game directories of your game.

Each indexed line of text has three sets of {}. The first set indicates the line index, which is represented by a number. The second set indicates the name of an optional associated .ACM sound file. The third set contains the text that is displayed, whether it be for an observation window or dialogue box.

NOTE: Interplay and Black Isle Studios originally developed Fallout 1 and 2 before Bethesda Softworks acquired the rights.
