ZenKit – Documentation


The ZenKit project aims to re-implement file formats used by the ZenGin made by Piranha Bytes for their early-2000s games Gothic and Gothic II. It is heavily based on ZenLib which is used as an initial reference implementation of the file formats.

Welcome to the joint ZenKit and ZenGin reference documentation. Here you will find information about how to use the ZenKit library to parse ZenGin files as well as in-depth descriptions of the file formats being used.

The Library Reference contains information relevant for users of the ZenKit library while the ZenGin Reference contains detailed information about each file format and the ZenGin itself.
