.CEF - "Client Effect File" File
  • Client Effect Files are used to bundle Sound (.SND) and Particle Effect (.PRT) files together.
    • File chain:

        • /appearance/<filename>.prt
        • or
        • /sound/<filename>.snd

.EFT - "Effect" File
  • Effect files handle the actual Shaders (Pixel (.PSH) and Vertex (.VSH) Shaders), including shading passes.
    • File chain:
      • /effect/<filename>.eft
        • /pixel_program/<filename>.psh
        • /vertex/_program/<filename>.vsh

.SHT - "Shader" File
  • Shader files link to the Texture (.DDS), the Effect (.EFT), and when required, Palette's (.PAL)
    • File chain:
      • /shader/<filename>.sht

        • /effect/<filename>.eft
