Resident Evil 3

Resident Evil 3 (PC version) always uses .DAT as file extension. The zmovie subdirectory contains MPEG audio-video files. The rest of game datas are stored as big file archives.

The Playstation version does not use files for 3D models and their associated textures. Instead the game loads directly the needed data from CD-ROM sectors.
