What is a .TOR file?

The .TOR file extension is used for a special type of file called a Star Wars: The Old Republic Asset File. These files are like big boxes that hold different pieces of the video game Star Wars: The Old Republic (SWTOR). Inside these "boxes," you can find all sorts of game-related stuff such as the maps where the action happens, the characters that players can be or meet, the weapons they use, and even the music that plays in the background. These files are saved in a specific way known as the MYP archive format.

If you're playing Star Wars: The Old Republic on your computer, the game uses these .TOR files to access all the game data it needs. Normally, you'll find these files in a special folder called /Assets, which is inside the main game folder where SWTOR is installed on your computer.

Even though these files are very important for the game, they're not meant to be changed by players. However, if someone is curious and wants to see what's inside these .TOR files, they can use a program called EasyMYP. This program lets you open up the .TOR file and look at or take out the contents, like getting a peek behind the scenes of the game. Another way to access the game is through the LucasArts Star Wars: The Old Republic game itself, which naturally knows how to read and use these files since they're an essential part of how the game operates.
