Chip's Challenge Wiki


A C2H file (having the extension .c2h) is the file format where Chip's Challenge 2 stores the best scores and times for each level.

The file is a binary file consisting of several sections one after the other, terminated by the END section. Each section begins with a section header, which is followed by the section's data. Each level in the set that the player has encountered has its own copy of the FILE, TYPE, NAME and SAVE sections.

All data in the file is little-endian.

4 Four character code identifying the section, see table below. Codes shorter than 4 characters (such as "END") are padded with spaces (making "END " in this case).
