.BIN can be a 3d Mesh file
.BIN can be an archive file
How do i know that these BIN files are archives?
I have Test Drive Off Road 3. It was created by Infogrames in 1999, the same year as driver. All their information on vehicles, music, textures etc. were in .ZIP files that could be easily modified.
We may never extract these files. We may someday. We might not.
Binary files are used for a wide variety of content and can be associated with a great many different programs. In general, a .BIN file will look like garbage when viewed in a file editor and unless there is some clue in the ASCII portion of the file (if any) there is little one can do to determine which program a particular .BIN file goes with. The context of the file (where it is located) may help. Note: This file type can become infected and should be carefully scanned if someone sends you a file with this extension.
