File Extension DSS

.DSS File

File extension: DSS
File type: Saved Game File

Notes about the DSS file extension:

To open this file type, a required software must be installed. Without it you only see a Windows message "The following file cannot be opened" (Windows 7) or "How do you want to open this file?" (Windows 10) if you double-click the file. There click on "More apps" and choose a suitable software to view such files on your PC or from email attachments.

The DSS file type is primarily associated with 'Action Replay' by Datel Ltd.. Action Replay is the brand name of a series of devices created by Datel, primarily used for changing the behavior of video games. Currently, Action Replay is available for the Nintendo GameCube, Game Boy Advance, PlayStation 2, Xbox, Nintendo DS, and PlayStation Portable (PSP). Codejunkies sells the Action Replay hardware. Shuny's Savegames Converter will convert the files to other, perhaps more useful, formats. The DSS file is an older format; newer will have the extension DUC.
