.WIN File Association 3

A WIN file is an asset package created by GameMaker Studio, a cross-platform game engine. It is distributed with a game developed by GameMaker Studio and contains all the assets for the game, which include code, scripts, sounds, sprites, fonts, shaders, and textures.

More Information

The WIN file type is one of several asset package types that a game developer may choose from to accompany the distribution of his game. The package format is designed to protect assets from being modified by users looking to alter gameplay.

Users playing games that utilize the WIN file type can find the WIN file in the same directory as the .EXE game file. Examples of games developed by GameMaker Studio that utilize the WIN file include Rivals of Aether, IMSCARED, Deltarune, and Undertale.

WIN files are not meant to be opened by a user. They are meant to be referenced by the games for which they contain assets. However, users who enjoy modifying gameplay can open WIN files for the Undertale and Deltarune games (and possibly other GameMaker Studio games) with UndertaleModTool.

NOTE: Users should not modify games that they are legally restricted from modifying.
