If you could explain more, send me a PM. Thanks.
I don't know what Captain-Captain may be encountering, but .gca4base *is* a valid type of GCA4 character file. It's actually a standard character file, but is intended as more of a "base" character from which you'd expand and complete things--a lot like a base character template of sorts. GCA opens a file with the .gca4base extension as a new character containing all the info from the file, and would later prompt for a new file name when saving it.

So, there's that.
