What is an APC file?
An APC file is an audio file used by a CRYO Interactive Entertainment video game. It contains music, sound effects, or dialogue that is played within a game. APC files cannot be played by most popular media players, so if you want to play the files outside the game in which they are used, you may need to convert them to a standard audio format.
In 1990, a group of game developers from French publisher ERE Informatique left that company to form CRYO Interactive Entertainment. CRYO released a number of popular video games, including Dune, Black Moon Chronicles, and Atlantis: The Lost Tales, before filing for bankruptcy in 2002.
Atlantis: The Lost Tales used APC files, as did Egypt II, Odyssey: The Search For Ulysses, China: The Forbidden City, and a handful of other CRYO games. If you've encountered an APC file, it likely came from one of CRYO Interactive's video games.
How do I open an APC file?
Because APC files are so uncommon, most popular media players cannot play them. However, you can play APC files using VLC media player, and you can convert APC files to a more usable audio format using FFmpeg.
