Sonic Heroes/Spline Editing
From Sonic Retro
|SCHG: Sonic Heroes|
SPL splines are found in many places in Sonic Heroes. Splines such as rails and autoloops are not in SPL format, those instead are in the executable; paths used for Falcos (similar to splines) are animations found in every stage flyer archives. SPLs are found directly in the dvdroot folder or in ONE archives, and contain data for special stage splines, automated camera sections, and many objects such as flowers/propellers and the alligator in Frog Forest and Lost Jungle.
The file is little endian. It's a Renderware binary stream file with just one section.
