The .fxt file extension used for files containing the game texts. These files have two different meanings explained below.

GTA 1

GTA 1 used FXT files to store all the game texts. The original installation contained five .FXT files with different translations:

\GTADATA\ENGLISH.FXT
\GTADATA\FRENCH.FXT
\GTADATA\GERMAN.FXT
\GTADATA\ITALIAN.FXT
\GTADATA\SPECIAL.FXT

Since GTA 2 this format was replaced with the more advanced GXT format.

CLEO

GXTHook reintroduced FXT files to store text messages that are being displayed in game instead of the original ones. A new format was much simplier. A GXTHook's fxt file contains a list of plain text entries in the following format:

<GXTENTRY> <TEXT>

Since CLEO 4, GXTHook was built in the library, so now CLEO continues using FXT files in GTA 3, GTA VC, GTA SA.
