Opening SP3 files

Did your computer fail to open a SP3 file? We explain what SP3 files are and recommend software that we know can open or convert your SP3 files.

What is a SP3 file?

Files with the .sp3 extension contain Quake 2 Sprite Builder files. These files contain sprites that can be loaded in the Quake 2 gaming application. The SP3 files are stored in the PCX file format, allowing the files to take up less disk space without compromising the quality of the file.

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.
