.UMX File Extension

Unreal Game Data File

Question: What is an UMX File?

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

Before attempting to open an UMX 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 .UMX extension are known as Unreal Game Data files, however other file types may also use this extension. If you are aware of any additional file formats that use the UMX extension, please let us know.

How to open a UMX file:

The best way to open an UMX 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 UMX 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 UMX 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.

Hello Folks,

well, umx is the file type of the background music for all games using the Unral Tournament (UT99) Engine. I'm realy not sure witch audio parameters umx finally supports...

Using the Unreal Tournament Editor you can extract every .umx to .s3m, then you are also able to edit the .s3m File as usual. You are also able to import .mod, .s3m, .stm, .it, .xm, .far and .669 Files to buld a .umx, all with the UT-Editor. But the UT-Ed is not very handy...

The Unreal Editor is located in your UnralTounament System Folder (if you have installed Unreal Tournament...) "UnrealEd.exe" if you run the Programm you can see in the menu bar a "note" Button, the Music Browser will open if you clic on it, there you can export all the music or just listen to it. If you don't hear anything start the game and set the Volume for the music cos the Editor use the Game settings to play the Music...

For all who only want to listen to umx files without the Editor:
The Spider-Player supports UMX

And now you say okay, I have a s3m File, what now?
you can get a .s3m to .wav converter.

Finally there is WinAmp. For all who like this "thing"

Anything else?

umx Files are the Music Files of UT99.

You can Play them with the Spyder-Player or a WinAmp Plugin.

Both Player are, afaik, also able to convert the Files in the better known wav or mp3.

I only tested the Spyder Player and that's verry fast and verry good, at playing and also at converting songs into mp3 or wav. The Spyder Player also convert into ogg, wma flac and WavPack!

You are also able to open and export the files with the UT-Editor, you regulary will find the tool in you UT99 System Folder called UnrealEd.exe.
If you start the Editor, Click on the Note Icon to open the Music Browser, there you can export and listen to any umx File, but notice, the Volume is set from the Game Options, if you don't hear any Music you may need to run the game and switch the volume...

Hope it Helps!
