All of the presented models are described in Wiktorowicz et al. 2017. Total simulated stellar mass is 2.9e8 solar masses.
Files are named in the following way: zZZZ_mMM_dD.dat
ZZZ represents a mantissa of metallicity (e.g. 02 refers to metallicity equal 0.02)
MM is the deconfinement mass multiplied by 10, e.g. 15 means deconfinement mass of 1.5 Msun (see Wiktorowicz et al. 2017 for details).
D is the data type: 0 - NS/QS in binaries; 1 - QS formation.
For example, if you wish to see QS formation information for solar metallicity (Z=0.02) and lower value of deconfinement mass 1.5 Msun you should choose z02_m15_d1.dat file.
Each line of the files for which D equals 0 contains information about one evolutionary timestep of a binary with NS/QS component. The format is as follows:

The list of phases used to describe evolutionary history (evroute):
MTx - stands for non-conservative mass transfer through Roche lobe overflow. "x" indicates the donor: 1-primary, 2-secondary.
SNx - stands for a supernovae explosion.
CEx(a0-b0:a1-b1) - stands for a common envelope events. "x" indicates the donor star: 1-primary, 2-secondary or 12-both components are donors.
"a0-b0" are integer numbers indicating stellar types (explained below) of the primary-secondary components, respectively, at the start of the CE.
Analogously "a1-b1" indicate stellar types at the outcome of the CE. For example "CE2(14-2:14-7)" means that a CE was initiated by the secondary component ("CE2"), which was a Hertzsprung gap star ("-2:"), onto the primary, which was a black hole ("14-").
In the outcome, the secondary ejected its hydrogen envelope and became a Wolf-Rayet star ("-7"), while the primary remained a black hole (":14-").
AICtypex indicates an accretion induced core collapse.
"type" describes the compact object to which the progenitor has collapsed and "x" - the relevant component: 1-primary, 2-secondary. For example "AICQS1" means that the accreting primary star ("1") has collapsed into a quark star ("QS").
