Question: What is an Z3 File?

Have you found, downloaded or received an Z3 file, but don't know which software program is required to open it?

Before attempting to open an Z3 file, you'll need to determine what kind of file you are dealing with and whether it is even possible to open or view the file format.

Answer: Files which are given the .Z3 extension are known as Game module files, however other file types may also use this extension. If you are aware of any additional file formats that use the Z3 extension, please let us know.

How to open a Z3 file:

The best way to open an Z3 file is to simply double-click it and let the default assoisated application open the file. If you are unable to open the file this way, it may be because you do not have the correct application associated with the extension to view or edit the Z3 file.

This file format was added to our database by a visitor to this site, but no additional information was provided. We have yet to investigate this file type further, or there was not enough information available at the time to report accurately on the format.

Please check back soon for more information as we are constantly updating our file descriptions based on search frequency.

Tip: Try to open the Z3 file using a text-editor such as Notepad, as many file types contain simply contain unformatted plain-text and can viewed correctly using this method.

The .z3 files are compiled game code to files containing Z-machine instructions (called story files, or Z-code files). Z-code files usually have names ending in .z1, .z2, .z3, .z4, .z5, .z6, .z7 or .z8 (and occasionally .dat), where the number is the version number of the Z-machine on which the file is intended to be run.

Types 1, 2, 4, 6, and 7 are extremely uncommon; most Z-machine data files are types 3, 5, or 8. Type 6 provides some graphics support.

Interpreters for Z-code files are available on a wide variety of platforms - on various old machines (such as the Apple II, TRS-80 and Sinclair), portable machines (such as Palm OS devices and the Nintendo Game Boy) and most modern platforms.
