General Information[edit]

Chrono Cross[edit]

1. Introduction

The tbt filetype is basically a bunch of strings mashed together with a leading pointer table. There are only four known examples of it on the Cross ~CDs, and the exact details of the format differ from file to file.

2. Pointers

tbt files have no true header—the pointer forest begins immediately. Each pointer indicates the beginning of a string, relative to the beginning of the file. There is an EOF pointer. Pointers are little-endian (surprise, surprise) and usually 2 bytes, although 0018.001 uses 4-byte pointers.

3. Strings

The strings that form the meat of the tbt file may be relative alphabet encoded or plain ASCII, depending on the exact file. They are always null-terminated. Strings may contain line-feeds or other control characters.
