.CHR file help

I’m not entirely sure where to put this at, so forgive me if this in the wrong spot.

I have some files ripped from a game with the .CHR extension. From the basics of what I know, these contain the model and texture data. I know 3D Max can open them, but they always have an error when I attempt to do so. My real question is, is there a viewer or some way to get these files to show up? Any help is appreciated and thank you for your time.
