What is a .SMDL file?

An SMDL file is a type of 3D model file specifically used in the video game Donkey Kong Country Tropical Freeze. This file format includes various components such as a mesh, which is the framework of the model showing the shape of the object; skin, which covers the mesh and gives the model its texture and appearance; and animations, which are the movements that the model can perform.

The SMDL file helps in displaying the characters and other elements within the game, making them appear lifelike and allowing them to move. These files are crucial for the game's visual and interactive aspects, contributing to the overall gaming experience.

As of now, there are no widely available programs that can directly open or edit SMDL files. These files are typically used and manipulated by the game developers and the game engine itself during the creation and running of Donkey Kong Country Tropical Freeze. If you need to work with these files, you might require specialized tools or software specifically designed for game development or possibly proprietary tools used by the developers of the game.
