PAC (sometimes called BIN or PAK) is an archive format used in the Persona series. In the PS2 titles, they contain a number of TMX and SPR files which are loaded together (i.e. the Title Screen, Pause Menu, Results Screen, Battle HUD). However, the in-battle RMD models are contained in PAC files because they are also loaded with their respective ACX voice clips archive. In Persona 5, a variant of BIN is used again to contain bustups and various UI elements and scripts (in which case it is referred to as PAK).
