What is a GMD file?

A GMD file contains information about how text is displayed in Nintendo 3DS games. It stores information about dialogs that appear during the game, such as the actual text and the appearance of the dialog.

More Information

GMD files are typically packaged in .ARC Nintendo archive files and distributed with games. The files are not meant to be manually opened. Instead, the files are referenced during gameplay.

However, some 3DS gamers enjoy modifying gameplay and editing GMD files. These users extract GMD files from ARC files using utilities like ARCTool and convert the files to editable text files.
