You will have to create particle effects in another program and find a way to import into GDK OR create a plane and give it an animated texture with the explosion and face it towards the player. Option 2 is much easier but won't look as good, although it is possible to pull off decently.

Explosions are special effects, you have to program them into your game. You could include them by creating a file along with your .dbo map that contains the explosions name and positions, you would load that data into your game and create the explosion effect from there.

Check out Magic Particles, it is a particle engine with a GDK wrapper: http://www.astralax.com/projects/particles/dev

.DBO file is a 3D mesh, it is a collection of vertices and lines and faces. To add an explosion you must program them into your game. If you want to add them in an editor create your own or find one that supports entities. The entities won't be included in the .DBO, they will usually be in another file you have to parse seperatly.

How are you making your maps and explosions?
