EP file open in Explore

In 2014, developer powerpoint56 and various helpers created and released Explore, a block-based development environment that is a variant of Scratch 1.0. Explore contains over 200 additional blocks and other features that Scratch 1.0 does not include. For example, Explore allows developers to easily share and edit projects collaboratively, and it allows developers to convert development projects into .EXE files.

Explore development projects are saved as EP files. While EP files are similar to Scratch 1.0's .SB files, Scratch 1.0 cannot open EP files. Explore can, however, import users' SB files and convert them into EP files.

How to open an EP file

You can open an EP file in Explore (Windows). To do so, select File → Open... from Explore's menu bar. Then, navigate to and open your EP file.
