What is an SNC file?
An SNC file contains game save data used by the PC versions of Sonic Adventure DX. It contains a record of a player's story or minigame progress. The original Sonic Adventure DX's primary SNC file is named SonicDX01.snc; the 2011 re-release's primary SNC file is SonicAdventure01.snc.
Sonic Adventure DX is a remastered version of the original Sonic Adventure. It was released in 2004 and is available for GameCube and Windows. In this 3D platforming game, Sonic and friends must collect the Chaos Emeralds before Dr. Robotnik can use them to unleash Perfect Chaos.
The Windows version of Sonic Adventure DX saves players' game data in SNC files. For example, SonicDX01.snc (and other SNC files whose filename ends in a number) contains a player's story progress. Other SNC files, such as SONICADVENTURE_DX_CHAOGARDEN.snc contain a record of a player's minigame progress or other achievements.
Sonic Adventure DX was itself re-released in 2011. This version of Sonic Adventure DX uses SNC files that are formatted slightly differently and have names like SonicAdventure01.snc and SonicAdventureChaoGarden.snc.
How to open an SNC file
You can use an SNC file to load the game save data it contains in Sonic Adventure DX (Windows). To do so, place the file in the following directory:
- 2004 version: ~/SEGA/Sonic Adventure/savedata
- 2011 version: ~/YourUserName/Documents/SEGA/Sonic Adventure DX/SAVEDATA
Then, open Sonic Adventure DX and resume the game mode to which your SNC file corresponds.
Modders can modify an SNC file's data using SASave, a player-created save editing utility.
