TFTD has 94 research projects so the first 188 bytes (94 little endian words) are the days remaining and the last 94 bytes are for the number of scientists assigned. Each base uses 284 bytes to represent the research project state for a total file size of 2256 bytes (282×8).

A zero for scientist-days merely means that the project is not actively being researched. It may have been not started, or have been completed.

Project names are elsewhere in ENGLISH.DAT. Offsets are solely in hexadecimal for this iteration. The first offset is for scientist-days (2 Bytes), the second is for number of scientists allocated.

From an "ask the machine" savegame, in order, for the first base:
