Opening SPV files

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

What is a SPV file?

The .spv file extension is used for a data file format that was created by Electronic Arts, Inc. for one of their computer game products. These SPV files are also known as American McGee's Alice saved game files. This software was developed for Windows PCs using the id Tech 3 game engine, which was created by id Software. These .spv files are also classified as game files.

The data that is stored in an SPV file is associated with game positions and other relevant details that have been saved by the user during gameplay. These .spv files are in the same format that is used in games based on the id Tech 3 engine, but other games use different file extensions for its saved game files. The American McGee's Alice game is based on the classic Alice in Wonderland story by Lewis Carroll.

Only the American McGee's Alice game software is recommended to be used to open these .spv files. This is to ensure that the saved game data that is stored in these SPV files will work properly when loaded in the American McGee's Alice game.

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.
