Specs: Windows 7 64bit sp1, about 4 gb
i realy wonder what the extension is of a regular folder/map
i think it is a sort of hex code like the godmode map:
folder_name.{hex number}

BTW: this is a question, not a problem, rather help others first, i am just realy wondering about this
to create files witch i can turn into folders(empty files)

Folder names don't have extensions, only filenames have them.

Well that's just not true, is it? Of course a folder can have an extension, if you wish. It can have any extension you care to give it.

Try it: create a new folder and then rename it to "folder.extension".

How a file system implements its directories is dependent on the file system. Since you list your OS as Win7, I assume you're interested in NTFS. You can read more here.

Someone should note directories are a property of the file system. Folders are a construct of the Explorer shell. It's possible to have a directory without a folder, and it's possible to have a folder.
