The WT format is closely associated with WildTangent, a company renowned for its expertise in developing online games and game technology. These files typically contain 3D models utilised in various WildTangent games, such as Fate, Polar Bowler, and Penguins.

However, unlike human-readable text files, WT files are binary, meaning their data can only be comprehended by specific software designed for their interpretation.

In this article, we’ll delve into more features of the WT format files.

Identifying WT files

WT files can be distinguished by their signature: 41 D8 01 00 01 00 00 00 D8 08 23 B7.

However, it’s essential to recognise that not all WT files share the same structure. Some WT files adopt ZIP compression, housing one or more compressed files.

Notably, these files often bear names such as dictionary.txt and removed.txt, and they can be extracted by renaming the WT file to .zip and utilizing a ZIP utility to access their contents.

Other WT files may feature diverse formats, such as XML, config, or Comments.
