A TVM file may also be a game data file used by Tribes: Vengeance, a video game developed by Irrational Games and published by Vivendi Universal. It contains data that Tribes: Vengeance uses to load a game map. TVM files are saved in a proprietary format.

More Information

Tribes: Vengeance is a first-person shooter in which players use power armor, jetpacks, frictionless skis, and a variety of weapons to fight enemies and each other. The game features both a single player campaign mode and five multiplayer modes. Both modes are played on a variety of game maps.

Each game map is associated with a TVM file, which Tribes: Vengeance uses to load that map and its related assets (saved in a PKG file). Single player TVM files' names start with SM. Multiplayer TVM files' names start with MP. Players can find all of Tribes: Vengeance's TVM files in the following directory:
