Opening RCF files

Did your computer fail to open a RCF file? We explain what RCF files are and recommend software that we know can open or convert your RCF files.

What is a RCF file?

Files that contain the .rcf file extension are used for a variety of file formats by a number of different software applications.

The .rcf file extension is most commonly used by the Prototype computer game. These RCF files contain the game files that are referenced by the application during a user’s game play.

The .rcf file extension is also used by the Colin McRae computer gaming application. These RCF files contain the race car configuration files that are referenced by the computer. When a user creates a race car within the game, each race car is saved in a file with the .rcf file suffix.

Try a universal file viewer

In addition to the products listed above, I would suggest that you try a universal file viewer like Free File Viewer. It can open over 200 different types of files - and very likely yours too! Download Free File Viewer.
