What are INP files and how to open them

Are you having problems opening an INP file or are you simply curious about its contents? We're here to explain the properties of these files and provide you with software that can open or handle your INP files.

What is an INP file?

INP files have multiple uses, and MAME Input is one of them. Read more about the other uses further down the page.

MAME Input File

Files that contain the .inp file extension are most commonly associated with video game replay files. These files are created by the MAME (Multiple Arcade Machine Emulator) arcade emulation software.

The INP files created by the MAME software application store the replay data of a gamer's gameplay using the compressed MAME file format. This allows users to record videos of their gameplay experiences in the INP file format.

Game players often record and playback their recorded gameplay videos and share them online. In addition, INP files are often used when sharing game tips and advice online with other gamers. For example, in World of Warcraft, if a game player wants to show other players how to succeed in end-game content, they could create an INP file that shows how the strategy works.
