.GRP File Association 4

A GRP file is a game data file used by games that are built with Ken Silverman's Build Engine. Example games include Duke Nukem 3D and Shadow Warrior. GRP files can store various kinds of game data, such as graphics, audio, and map information. They are saved in a simple uncompressed format and therefore can easily be modified to change gameplay.

More Information

The group format is an older format and therefore support for it is limited. There are still tools such as kgroup and kextract which can be used for extracting the contents of the files and for repacking the files with updated content. These programs are part of Ken Silverman's Build Engine.

NOTE: Since there are several branches of Ken Silverman's engine, there may be slight variations in GRP files. Therefore, you should look into the group file format documentation for the specific game you have.
