What is a GLA file?

Project file created by Sothink SWF Easy, a program used for developing Web banners for Flash, HTML5, .AVI, and .GIF formats; supports text, images, audio, video, and animation settings; also supports multiple animated "scenes," which can be thought of as slides in a slideshow.

More Information

Several project template GLA files are included with the Sothink SWF Easy installation. These templates can be used as a starting point for building banners.

Gameloft Archive

A GLA file may also be an archive used by a Gameloft video game. It contains meshes, models, textures, or other game assets. Gameloft's The Dark Knight Rises, 9mm, and N.O.V.A. mobile games all use GLA files.

More Information

All Gameloft games that contain GLA files were developed using the Glitch game engine. While most players will never encounter a game's GLA files, modders and other interested parties have created tools that allow them to extract the assets that GLA files contain.

NOTE: Some Gameloft Archives use the .gla2 extension and file format. GLA2 files are compressed slightly differently than GLA files.

How to open a GLA file

You can use the QuickBMS extraction tool (Windows) and custom, player-created QuickBMS scripts to extract the game assets that a GLA file contains. You can then open and edit those assets in other associated programs and player-created tools.
