.fpk File Extension

Developer: 2K Games
File type: Civilization 4 Data File
You're here because you have a file that has a file extension ending in .fpk. Files with the file extension .fpk can only be launched by certain applications. It's possible that .fpk files are data files rather than documents or media, which means they're not meant to be viewed at all.

what is a .fpk file?

A Civilization 4 data file is implemented with encoding and compilation specifications of a proprietary game assets file format developed by 2K Games, and these Civilization 4 data files are stored in the FPK format. 2K Games integrated these FPK files into the Sid Meier's Civilization 4 video game to store digital graphics and animated objects used for the visual elements embedded in this video game. These digital graphics and animated sequences or motion graphics can be extracted from the Sid Meier's Civilization 4 video game by using the PakBuild software, and the Macapaka application can also be used to do this. The Macapaka software was particularly developed for Mac platforms, while the PakBuild program can be installed and used in computers running on Microsoft Windows-based systems. The Sid Meier's Pirates video game also implements the FPK file format for storing digital graphics and interactive animated content used in this video game. The PakBuild software and the Macapaka application can also be used for extracting digital graphics and animated clips used in the Sid Meier's Pirates video game.

how to open a .fpk file?

Launch a .fpk file, or any other file on your PC, by double-clicking it. If your file associations are set up correctly, the application that's meant to open your .fpk file will open it.

applications that open a .fpk file



PackBuild is also known as PakBuild and it is an application that is used to unpack files, specifically found in Civilization 4. Civilization 4 is a computer game wherein players are supposed to build an empire and try to expand it while trying to accomplish goals. This game also contains graphics and music as well as animations wherein in order to extract these files, users may need the PakBuild software. PakBuild functions as Civilization 4 unpacker and it allows users to unpack files, specifically Art0.FPK files that are usually located in the assets folder of Civilization 4. PakBuild cannot be compared to typical file extractors and compressors, because this deals mainly with large archives usually found in games. This software is used to unpack or extract archived game files so that users can send the game to a destination on their system. The PakBuild software is 200 kb in size developed by Firaxis and can run on Windows XP and Win2k.

a word of warning

Be careful not to rename the extension on .fpk files, or any other files. This will not change the file type. Only special conversion software can change a file from one file type to another.

what is a file extension?

A file extension is the set of three or four characters at the end of a filename; in this case, .fpk. File extensions tell you what type of file it is, and tell Windows what programs can open it. Windows often associates a default program to each file extension, so that when you double-click the file, the program launches automatically. When that program is no longer on your PC, you can sometimes get an error when you try to open the associated file.
