    A bank file in SC2 terms is the file generated by SC2 when a map loaded in the game runs some form of banking triggers to store values for future use in later games.

    They are in some standard file format so hardly need explaining.

    If you mean "How to use Banks", then you will have to wait many weeks and ask again when multiplayer custom maps are launched (even if that means waiting to release) as currently only the single player use of banks can be tested. As far as single player goes it is like using a gamecache although perhaps simpler.

    Multiplayer use is unknown as there is no facility to test this (third party systems violate ToU and might mess up the banks to exibit different behaviours than the real game). Basically there will have to be some form of syncronization inorder for any data to be loaded and how this is carried out is still a mystery.
