What is an .B file?

.B is Grand Theft Auto 3 Saved Game File

A B file is a saved game file created by Grand Theft Auto III (GTA3), an automotive-based action game. It saves gameplay information so the game can be resumed from the save point at a later time. B files are used by multiple editions of GTA3, including Vice City and San Andreas.

GTA3 saved games are stored in a subdirectory of the My Documents folder by default. For example, GTA3: San Andreas saves "B" files in the following directory:

C:\Documents and Settings\[username]\My Documents\GTA San Andreas User Files\

Common B Filenames
