Saved game file created by various games, including Quake III: Team Arena, Return to Castle Wolfenstein, and Grand Theft Auto 2 (GTA2); saves player progress in a game and allows progress to be resumed; typically saved by the game without the user having to manually access the actual file itself.

Because different games use different formats for SVG files, you may have to try multiple programs before being able to open them. For example, GTA2 Saved Game Editor can edit SVG files created by GTA2 but not SVG files created by Quake III: Team Arena.

NOTE: If you don't have a program that opens or edits SVG files, try opening your SVG file in a text editor such as Notepad.
