Please post the text here - it is unlikely that people will download an arbitrary binary file.

Also tell us more about the problem: where does it come from, what are the constraints, whet else do you know about it, what have tried so far, etc.

The file is likely in a raw binary format. In other words, it's not text.

If the makers of the game didn't release a specification on the file format, then you need to figure it out by careful analysis of the binary contents of the file. A hex editor can help with this. This is difficult and time-consuming work though. If you're lucky, other people that are involved in the game may already have found out what the format of the data is.

Please don't refer to me as Bro, you can call me Stephan.

Hex editors are easy to come by. Just Google and you'll find a whole bunch of them. In the past I've used WinHex, but it's proprietary and you pay for a license. I'm sure you can easily find a free one somewhere.
