What is a CIN file?

A CIN file is a video used in the MS-DOS version of the video game Fade to Black. It contains a scene played within the game. CIN files are quite uncommon, so most popular media players cannot play them.

More Information

Fade to Black was a third-person shooter and puzzle-solving game produced by Delphine Software International, a French video game developer. It was a sequel to Flashback: The Quest for Identity, and it starred that game's protagonist, Conrad B. Hart. In Fade to Black, Conrad must reclaim Earth from the alien Morphs.

Fade to Black was released for MS-DOS, PlayStation, and Dreamcast, but only the MS-DOS version used CIN videos.
