Terminal Velocity is a first-person aerial shooter. The later Fury3 engine is backwards compatible enough that it can run Terminal Velocity without modification.

File formats

This section lists the major file formats used in the game.

All text files are in DOS format (CRLF line endings).

  • POD Format - group file storing most of the game data.
  • WAV Format - The RemoteRidicule and other game sounds are stored in .WAV files.
  • VOX Format - The level order seems to be stored in these files, as well as the audio config file VOX.INI.
  • INI Format - Used for POD mounting and configuration. The file POD.INI starts with a number specifying the number of PODs to mount, subsequent lines are the file names of the PODs to load. The configuration file SETUP.CFG seems to be in standard .INI format.
