What is a .SPZ file?

The file extension .SPZ refers to a specific type of file used in the PlayStation 2 version of the video game Half-Life. These files are known as Half-Life PS2 Sprites. An SPZ file contains one or more two-dimensional images. These images are used to cover the surfaces of objects within the game, such as weapons, visual effects, or elements of the user interface. This is similar to how .SPR files function in other versions of the Half-Life game, where they also represent sprite files but may be used on different gaming platforms or systems.

To open or work with an SPZ file, you would typically use a specialized tool designed for PlayStation 2 game development or modification. One such tool is the PS2 HL TOOLS, which is specifically tailored for handling files and resources associated with the PlayStation 2 version of Half-Life. This tool allows users to view, modify, or manage the SPZ sprite files to customize game elements or develop new game content.
