Files

Level files

These files are in bb's root directory.

  • #ar.0 files contain spline, SceneEffect, stage collision, SET data, culling and terrain parameters. Collision is in HKX format, parameters are in XML format.
  • stg_cmn.ar.0 files contain SET object textures, materials, and models. If you are editing Green Hill's and Chemical Plant's textures, you will need to copy and paste the corresponding textures into the cmn ar files, as the game will sometimes read textures from these archives instead of the Packed ar files for the terrain.
