What is a .CFORM file?

A .CFORM file is a type of data file used in video games that are developed using the X-Ray Engine by GSC Game World and the OpenXRay engine, which is a fan-made version. These files contain important information for the game, such as maps and levels, and are in a special format that only the game can read.

The .CFORM files are created by game developers when they are building a game. They use special software development kits (SDKs) like the S.T.A.L.K.E.R. Clear Sky SDK or the Call of Pripyat SDK to create these files. These files help the game know where everything in the game world should be placed and how it should behave.

Regular players of the game should not try to open .CFORM files because they are not meant to be opened or edited by users. They are only for the game to use.

If you are a developer working on a game that uses the X-Ray or OpenXRay engines, you might need to work with .CFORM files using the appropriate SDKs.

Games that use .CFORM files include titles from the S.T.A.L.K.E.R. series such as Shadow of Chernobyl, Clear Sky, and Call of Pripyat. These games were developed by GSC Game World using the X-Ray Engine. The fan community has also created games using the OpenXRay engine, like S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Anomaly, which also use .CFORM files.

To summarize, .CFORM files are crucial for the development and functioning of certain video games but are not intended for use by the general player. They are handled and used by game developers through specific development tools.
