What is a .BMG file?

A .BMG file is a type of file used in some Nintendo video games, including those for the Nintendo DS, GameCube, Wii, and Wii U systems. Games like Mario Kart and Super Mario Sunshine use BMG files to store the text that you see on the screen during the game. This text can include things like the words in menus, the text you read during different levels, and the conversations between characters.

To open a BMG file, you would typically use special software programs that are designed for modifying Nintendo game files. Some of these programs include MKDS Course Modifier, Wiimms SZS Tools, CTools, and SZS Modifier. These tools allow you to view and change the text stored in BMG files.

BMG files are usually found within the game's data files, especially if you are looking into the files of a game that has been copied from its original disc or cartridge. For example, in Mario Kart Wii, the BMG files are located in a specific folder called /messages/ inside a larger file called an .SZS file, which is itself found in the /Scene/UI directory of the game's data.

If you are interested in editing or viewing the messages in a Nintendo game, you would use one of the mentioned programs to open the BMG files. This is something typically done by gamers or modders who like to customize or translate game text.
