Content.mgcb is a content reference file included in a video game developed using the MonoGame game development framework. It contains references to images and audio files used in the game. You can open and edit a Content.mgcb file in MonoGame's MGCB Editor.

More Information

MonoGame is a free, cross-platform C# video game development framework that allows developers to create games for PCs, video game consoles, and mobile devices. When you create a new MonoGame development project in Microsoft Visual Studio, the program automatically creates an associated Content.mgcb file, stored in the project's Content directory.

Content.mgcb stores references to the images and audio files a developer plans to include in their video game. While developers can manually open and edit Content.mgcb as a text file, they most often open the file in MonoGame's MGCB Editor. MGCB Editor is a tool used specifically to add image and audio file references to a game's Content.mgcb file, and to place images and audio files in the correct game project directory.

How to open an MGCB file

You can open an MGCB file in MonoGame's MGCB Editor. The MGCB Editor is published as a .NET tool, which can be installed using the NuGet .NET package manager.
