File type specification:

Game file type icon Game file type

The DLG file extension is also used in Bioware's Aurora game engine and Infinity game engine, which were first used for Neverwinter Nights and Baldur's Gate.

A Conversation is a branching set of predefined text strings ("lines") that a player and one or more NPCs can say to each other, along with the conditions that govern which lines are said and which are not, which are available to say and which are not, and the actions that accompany each line as it is said. Conversations are stored as .dlg files, and may be present in global game resources in BIF files, in the override directory, in a module, or in a savegame. Conversation files use BioWare's Generic File Format (GFF), and it is assumed that the reader of this document is familiar with GFF.

This is usually the case of system, configuration, temporary, or data files containing data exclusive to only one software and used for its own purposes.
