Definition

Bitmap image used for storing textures; can create the appearance of different surfaces and can be applied to both 2D and 3D objects; often used in video games (such as first person shooters) that support 3D texture-mapping.

More Information

Example video games that use TEX files include Avalon Heroes (which actually uses the .DDS format for its TEX files), Serious Sam, and Dead Rising 2. To open the TEX files used by Dead Rising 2, first rename them to have the ".big" extension, and then open them with Gibbed's DeadRising2 Tools.

TEX files can be opened by some programs that reference textures or use texture-mapping. They may possibly be opened with a generic image editor.
