What is a PMP file?

A PMP file is a development project created by PenguinMod, a modified version of MIT Scratch. It is a renamed .ZIP file that contains all of the project's assets. Typically, these assets consist of a .JSON file (e.g., project.json), one or more .SVG files, and additional image and audio files.

PenguinMod is a block-based development tool based on both MIT Scratch and TurboWarp (another modified version of Scratch). Using PenguinMod, developers can create animations, games, and other simple programs by dragging, dropping, and connecting code blocks.

At any time, developers can save their in-process PenguinMod development project as a PMP file. PMP files are similar to Scratch 3.0's .SB3 files, except that they may contain data created and used by custom PenguinMod extensions. For this reason, it's best to open PMP files in PenguinMod, rather than Scratch or TurboWarp.

How to open a PMP file

You can open a PMP file with PenguinMod. To do so, select File → Load from your computer from the program's menu bar. Then, navigate to and open your PMP file.

If you want to view or extract the assets a PMP file contains, you can do so by renaming the file's extension to .zip and opening it as you would any .ZIP file.

How to convert a PMP file

You can use PenguinMod Packager to convert a PMP file to an executable format, so you can run the program the file contains on a PC or in a web browser. PenguinMod Packager can export PMP files in the following formats:

  • .EXE - Windows Application
  • .APP - macOS Application Bundle
  • .ELF - Executable and Linkable Format
  • .HTML - Hypertext Markup Language
  • .ZIP - Zipped File
