Title: The Complete N00B's Guide to Brawl Hacking
Post by: tjmsrubegoldberg on July 30, 2010, 12:38:09 AM
Hi! If you're brand new to Brawl hacking (or Wii hacking in general), then this is the guide for you. You've probably seen some of the cool hacks around the Internet, and were wondering how you could use them on your Wii. This guide will show you everything, from how to load Homebrew all the way to creating or editing hacks yourself. From start to finish, it should probably take about 30-60 minutes to set everything up. If you have any problems, go ahead and post in the help forum. In order to make the tutorial a little easier to read, I've enclosed a lot of the reference material in spoilers. Click on the "Show Spoiler" button to see these lists.

*Note* There's always a very, very small chance you may brick your Wii. (In other words, break it beyond repair.) This has never happened to me or anyone that I know. Follow the instructions in this tutorial carefully, and nothing should go wrong. However, if something like that happens, neither I nor anyone who helped in creating the tools in this tutorial will be held responsible. If you have any doubts about running hacks on your Wii, don't do it.

1. Popular Homebrew Loading Options

In order to use Brawl hacks such as textures, models hacks, or PSAs, you first have to have some method of loading Homebrew. All of these methods require an SD Card. To see if your SD Card is compatible, check here: http://wiibrew.org/wiki/SD/SDHC_Card_Compatibility_Tests. If you already have Homebrew installed, skip to #2.

*Note* If your Wii has been updated to version 4.3, one of the methods below WILL NOT WORK. In order to check what System Menu you are on, go to Options > Wii Settings and check in the top right corner of the screen. It should say "Ver. _._U", "Ver. _._E", or "Ver. _._J", depending on which region you are in.

A. Homebrew Channel
The Homebrew Channel (HBC) is the most popular way to load Homebrew. It's a channel that you can install to your Wii. (Unlike other methods, you don't have to run this each time you want to load Homebrew. Once you run it, it's installed on your Wii until you uninstall it. You can uninstall it like any other channel on your Wii.) This is the recommended method for most people to use.

1. Go to this site: http://bootmii.org/download/ and download the latest version of the HackMii Installer. The latest version of HackMii (0.7) WILL WORK with Wii System Menu 4.3.
2. Extract it to your computer using a program like WinRAR (http://www.rarlab.com/download.htm).
3. Back up all of the data on your SD Card to your computer by cutting and pasting all of the files to somewhere on your computer.
4. Format your SD Card using the instructions below.

Quote from: WiiBrew
 Windows

   1. Open up My Computer.
   2. Right-click on the drive that contains the SD card and select Format....
   3. Under File system make sure you select FAT.
   4. Click "Start" and let the process finalize.
   5. After the formatting is finished proceed to the next step.

Mac OS

   1. Open up Disk Utility
   2. Find your SD card in the navigation.
   3. Go to the Erase tab.
   4. Change the Volume Format to MS-DOS (FAT).
   5. Click "Erase" and let the process finalize.
   6. After the formatting is finished proceed to the next step.

Linux

   1. Open up a terminal.
   2. Execute the command "mkfs.vfat /dev/<location of your SD card>".
   3. Caution not to reformat your hard disk. Think hard before formatting /dev/sda1, for example.
   4. After the formatting is finished proceed to the next step.


5A. If you are on System Menu 4.3, see step 5B. If you are on Wii System Menu 3.0 - 4.2, go to http://bannerbomb.qoid.us/ and download the version of Bannerbomb for your System Menu. Extract it to your computer.
5B. If you are System Menu 4.3, use Smash Stack instead. Download this file: http://wiibrew.org/w/images/4/4e/Smashstack.zip and extract it to your computer. Move ALL of your custom stages from Brawl onto your SD Card and then from there, back them up to your computer.
6. Copy the "private" folder from whichever tool you used and put it on the root of your blank SD Card. (Ex. X:\private, where X is the letter of the drive your SD Card uses.
7. Copy the "boot.elf" file from your HackMii installer folder and put it on the root of your SD Card.
8. Your SD Card should look like this (Image from WiiBrew): (http://wiibrew.org/w/images/2/23/SD_card_boot_and_private.jpg).
9. Turn on your Wii, but don't put your SD Card in yet.
10A. If you used BannerBomb and you are on System Menu 3.0 - 4.1, go to Options > Data Management > Wii > Channels > SD Card. If you are on 4.2, go to the SD Card menu from the Wii menu. Put in your SD Card and select "Yes" when a pop up appears asking to load boot.dol/elf.
10B. Put your SD Card into the Wii, launch Brawl through the Disc Channel, and go to the Stage Builder.
11. When the HackMii installer shows you what can/can’t be installed, hit continue. Go to Homebrew Channel > Install the Homebrew Channel. Hit “Yes.”
12. You can install DVDX and BootMii if you want, but those are optional and not needed for Brawl hacking.
13. Exit the HackMii Installer, take out your SD Card, and delete everything off of your SD Card. (You don't need any of that stuff anymore.)
14. Create a new folder on your SD Card called "apps".
15. Place the folder(s) for the Homebrew app(s) you want to run inside of that folder.
16. Make sure that the .dol or .elf file for the Homebrew you want to run is named "boot.dol" or "boot.elf".

B. BannerBomb
This method only works with System Menu 3.0 - 4.2. You must load BannerBomb every time you want to load hacks. However, this does not install anything on your Wii.

1. Go to http://bannerbomb.qoid.us/ and download the file for your System Menu.
2. Extract it to your computer using a program like WinRAR (http://www.rarlab.com/download.htm).
3. Format your SD Card using the instructions above.
4. Copy the private folder and move it to the root of your blank SD Card.
5. Put the boot.dol/.elf that you want to run on the root of your SD Card.
6. Your SD Card should look like the picture above.
7. If you are on System Menu 3.0 - 4.1, go to Options > Data Management > Wii > Channels > SD Card. If you are on 4.2, go to the SD Card menu from the Wii menu. Put in your SD Card and select "Yes" when a pop up appears asking to load boot.dol/elf.


C. Smash Stack
This method WILL work with ANY System Menu, including 4.3. Like BannerBomb, you will have to run this every time you want to load Homebrew. It does not install anything on your Wii. You will need the Brawl disc for this, but you probably already have it if you want to use Brawl hacks.

1. Download Smash Stack from here: http://wiibrew.org/w/images/4/4e/Smashstack.zip.
2. Extract it to your computer using a program like WinRAR (http://www.rarlab.com/download.htm).
3. Format your SD Card using the instructions above.
4. Move ALL of the custom stages from Brawl onto your SD Card and then back them up onto your computer.
5. Copy the "private" folder from the Smash Stack folder and put it on the root of your blank SD Card.
6. Put the boot.dol/.elf that you want to run on the root of your SD Card.
7. Your SD Card should look like the picture above.
8. Put the SD Card in your Wii, load Brawl though the Disc Channel, and go to the Stage Builder.


2. Homebrew Applications

Once you have some form of Homebrew loading set up, you'll need some Homebrew apps to use. The Homebrew listed below are some of the most useful ones for Brawl hacking.

A. Gecko OS
This will allow you to load codes for most any Wii game. It is definitely needed if you plan on using the File Patch Code, a popular method of loading Brawl hacks. You can either use this or Riivolution to load files.

1. Download Gecko OS here: http://wiird.l0nk.org/projectfiles/Gecko1931.zip.
2. Extract the file to your computer.
3. Go to Gecko1931 > Gecko1931 > HBC > Gecko1931.
4A. If you are using the Homebrew Channel, copy the last "Gecko1931" folder and paste it into your "apps" folder.
4B. If you are using any other method, copy the "boot.elf" file out of the "Gecko1931" folder and paste it into the root of your SD Card.
5. Create a folder on the root of your SD Card called "codes".
6. Download the Code Manager here: http://www.mediafire.com/?e2dzz7zdmcds252.
7. Extract it somewhere on your computer. I've included a basic .txt file for using the File Patch code. (NTSC-U only though. PAL and NTSC-J users will have to create their own, sorry.)
8. Open the Code Manager. Look to where it says "Game ID". Fill this in with the ID of the game you are making the codes list for. (Ex. Brawl's ID is RSBE01 for NTSC-U, RSBP01 for PAL, and RSBJ01 for NTSC-J) Go to where it says "Game Name" and type in the name of the game.
9. Find the codes that you want to use. A couple of good sites to check out are http://geckocodes.org/ and http://board.gscentral.org/forum.php.
10. To add a code, click on "Add a code/comment/category" and type in a name for the code. It should appear in bold. Click on it, then copy and paste the code into where it says "Code contents". Make sure to click "Store modifications" after you paste in the code.
11. When you are done adding codes, go to File > Save as TXT File. Then, make sure your SD Card is in the computer and click "Export to GCT". Select the drive for your SD Card and click on "Store".

B. Riivolution
This app works like the File Patch code, but it can be used for any game and any file. The only downside is that it is a little more complicated than the File Patch code. You can either use this or the File Patch code to load files for Brawl.
*Note* For Riivolution, ALL files must be named EXACTLY as they are on the ISO. (Ex. For the file "mu_menumain_en.pac", you must remove the "_en" to use it with the File Patch code, but you must keep it to use it with Riivolution.

1. Download the latest version of Riivolution from here: http://rvlution.net/riivolution.zip.
2. Extract it to somewhere on your computer.
3. Download the File Patch XML for Brawl here: http://rvlution.net/riivolution/images/5/5c/SSBBfiles.xml. (This is so that you can place files where they would go if you were using the File Patch code, since most people provide instructions based on that.)
4. Copy the "riivolution" folder out of the "apps" folder on your computer and paste it into the "apps" folder on your SD Card.
5. Create a folder on the root of your SD Card called "riivolution" and copy and paste the File Patch XML into there.
6. If you want to use codes along with Riivolution, follow the steps below. (Skip to step 14 if you've already followed the instructions for Gecko OS above.)
7. Create a folder on the root of your SD Card called "codes".
8. Download the Code Manager here: http://www.mediafire.com/?e2dzz7zdmcds252.
9. Extract it somewhere on your computer.
10. Open the Code Manager. Look to where it says "Game ID". Fill this in with the ID of the game you are making the codes list for. (Ex. Brawl's ID is RSBE01 for NTSC-U, RSBP01 for PAL, and RSBJ01 for NTSC-J) Go to where it says "Game Name" and type in the name of the game.
11. Find the codes that you want to use. A couple of good sites to check out are http://geckocodes.org/ and http://board.gscentral.org/forum.php.
12. To add a code, click on "Add a code/comment/category" and type in a name for the code. It should appear in bold. Click on it, then copy and paste the code into where it says "Code contents". Make sure to click "Store modifications" after you paste in the code.
13. When you are done adding codes, go to File > Save as TXT File. Then, make sure your SD Card is in the computer and click "Export to GCT". Select the drive for your SD Card and click on "Store".
14. Go to here: http://www.mediafire.com/?sharekey=6124ef087d03b5a9819d3eb78bf1479d79557004672710560cf82e11d2b2bd8465b36d064e4faac5a2a7740380de0aff and download the file for your disc region.
15. Extract it onto your computer and move both files to the "riivolution" folder on the root of your SD Card.

C. Homebrew Browser
This app is useful for finding, downloading, and updating Homebrew easily on your SD Card. It only works with the Homebrew Channel.

1. Download the Homebrew Browser here: http://www.codemii.com/wiihomebrew/homebrew_browser_v0.3.8.zip.
2. Extract the file to your computer.
3. Copy the "homebrew_browser" folder and paste it into the "apps" folder on your SD Card.

3. Downloading and Using Brawl Hacks

Now that you have Homebrew set up and an app to load files with, you'll need files to load. Where can you find files? Right here of course! Look around the forums and BrawlVault to find hacks that you like and download them to your computer. All files must be named correctly in order for them to work. Look at the lists below for where to put the files and what to name them. This list works for both the File Patch code and Riivolution, as long as you used the File Patch XML for Riivolution. (Replace the (X)'s in the file locations with the proper SD drive location and disc region.

Characters
Characters belong in the following location:
(X):\private\wii\app\RSB(X)\pf\Fighter\(Character Name)\

Here are the names for each character:

The transforming characters (Zero Suit Samus/Samus, Wario/Wario Man, Bowser/Giga Bowser, Pokemon Trainer/Squirtle/Ivysaur/Charizard) all need .pac files along with .pcs files for textures to work correctly.

Stages
Normal stages belong in the following location:
(X):\private\wii\app\RSB(X)\pf\stage\melee\

SSE stages (NOT MODEL SWAPPED STAGES, only the actual SSE stages) belong in:
(X):\private\wii\app\RSB(X)\pf\stage\adventure\
You'll know if a stage is an actual SSE stage because it's file name will be a bunch of numbers. (Ex. 420101.pac)

Music
Music only works with File Patch code versions over 3.1 (and Riivolution of course).
Songs belong in:
(X):\private\wii\app\RSB(X)\pf\sound\strm\

A full list of songs and what to name them can be found here: http://www.mediafire.com/?jgmd833x1l0bpjn.
(Not made by me, but I forgot who made it... Sorry!)

*Note* If your music sounds like static, or the song cuts off randomly and a new song starts, or the song doesn't sound like it should, first try defragmenting your SD Card. If that doesn't work, back up everything on your SD Card and then format it.

Sound Effects
Sound effects can ONLY be used with Riivolution. The most stable File Patch Code (3.5.1) DOES NOT support sound effects.
The file "smashbros_sound.brsar" is the file used for sound effects in game, such as character/announcer voices. This file is often edited for completely new characters. It belongs in:
(X):\private\wii\app\RSB(X)\pf\sound\

Menus
Most hacks for the menus are in the mu_menumain.pac, sc_selcharacter.pac, and sc_selmap.pac files.

The mu_menumain.pac file belongs in:
(X):\private\wii\app\RSB(X)\pfmenu2\ (Not a typo. Create a new folder in your RSBE folder called "pfmenu2" for the mu_menumain.pac.)

The other files above belong in:
(X):\private\wii\app\RSB(X)\pf\menu2\


System Files
The system files that are most commonly edited are common3.pac and common5.pac

All of the common_.pac files belong in:
(X):\private\wii\app\RSB(X)\pf\system\

Strap Loaders
This is the screen that appears before the opening movie which reminds you to wear the wrist strap/don’t hit people. It’s very popular to edit. It belongs in:
(X):\private\wii\app\RSB(X)\pf\menu\strap\

Rel Files
These files allow you to replace a stage in Brawl with a stage that uses a different Brawl stage as a base. For example, if somebody created a stage based off of Final Destination, you could use a rel file to load it over Hanenbow instead. They belong in:
(X):\private\wii\app\RSB(X)\pf\module\
For help in naming or creating rel files, visit this page: http://ssbbcustom.wikia.com/wiki/Module_files.

4. Making Brawl Hacks

Ok, so you have Homebrew installed and know how to load Brawl hacks. Now, you can learn how to make them.

Making Textures
1. Download BrawlBox, an essential tool for anyone who wants to make any type of Brawl hack. The latest version can be found here: http://brawltools.googlecode.com/files/BrawlBox%20v0.63d.zip.
2. Extract BrawlBox to somewhere on your computer.
3. You will need Brawl's original files to base your hacks off of. All of the files except for the movies can be found here: http://www.mediafire.com/?sharekey=bf68243dc4c908b28d78a0e5552916095d6170349cac00195be6ba49b5870170.
4. Download whatever files you need. They are located in the same way they are placed on the SD Card. (Ex. If you want to download Captain Falcon's main file, go to Data Partition > fighter > captain > FitCaptain00.pac.)
5. Open the file in BrawlBox. If you want to make a simple texture hack, right click on where it says "TextureData[0]" and click on "Export All". Create a folder wherever you want to export the textures to and click Ok.
6. Open the textures in an image editor (Ex. Paint.NET, downloadable here: http://www.dotpdn.com/downloads/pdn.html, or GIMP, downloadable here: http://www.gimp.org/downloads/) and edit them as you wish. Save the edited files over the original files.
7. Open the original file in BrawlBox, right click "TextureData[0]" and click on "Replace All". Find the folder where you have all of your edited files and click Ok.
8. Click on the + sign next to "ModelData[0]" and then the + sign next to "3DModels(NW4R)". Right click the MDL0 (Ex. FitCaptain00) and click on "Preview". If you can't see anything, try zooming out by pulling the mouse wheel backwards. To move around, hold the right mouse button and move the mouse. You'll be able to see what your texture looks like on the character/stage. Exit the preview when you are done looking.
9. Go to File > Save As and save the finished file to wherever you want. If you are making characters, make sure to save as a .pcs file (.pac is optional, unless you are making a texture for one of the transforming characters listed above). If you are making stages, make sure to save as a .pac file.

CSPs (Character Selection Portraits)
If you download a character and you receive a picture file along with it, this is what it is supposed to be used for. CSPs are the pictures of the character that appear on the Character Selection Screen. Note that these are completely optional and don't have to be used along with the character. Here's how to put them into the game.
1. Download the original common5.pac from the link above and open it in BrawlBox.
2. Expand (Click the + button next to) "sc_selcharacter_en" and then "char_bust_tex_lz77".
3. Each of the "MiscData[_]" files contain the CSPs for a different character. Expand the MiscData and then expand the "Textures(NW4R)" within them. Click on each TEX0 file to see the original CSPs for that character.
4. Expand each of the MiscDatas until you find the character you want. Choose the color that you have the file set over and then right click the TEX0. Click on "Replace", and then find the image that came with the downloaded file (or your own image if you are making CSPs). When you are done, save the common5.pac file and put it in your SD Card.
5. If you are using an sc_selcharacter.pac file (Ex. A custom CSS), you'll have to do the following steps for your CSPs to appear.
6. Open your common5.pac in BrawlBox. Expand "sc_selcharacter_en" and right click on "char_bust_tex_lz77". Click "Export" and save it to your computer.
7. Now open up the sc_selcharacter.pac file you downloaded in BrawlBox. Expand it and find "char_bust_tex_lz77". Right click it and hit "Replace". Find the "char_bust_tex_lz77" you exported from your common5.pac.
8. Save the sc_selcharacter.pac file and put it on your SD Card.

Finally got a chance to read this and i must say it's very easy and newbie friendly
But might want to add this in:

5. Downgrading Your Wii

Warning: The following tutorials are the most likely parts of this guide to cause permanent damage to your Wii if not followed properly. Make sure to follow all instructions carefully and if you have any doubts whatsoever, don't do it.

DO NOT UPDATE YOUR WII. I repeat: Do NOT update your Wii! The most recent updates (4.2 and 4.3) have done NOTHING to improve the Wii. Their only purpose was to try to wipe out Homebrew. As such, certain Homebrew applications may not work if you update your Wii.
If you have updated your Wii and a certain Homebrew app doesn't work, downgrade to a more stable version using these tutorials (The tutorials don't only work for the menu versions specified, but it's recommended that you use the tutorial that corresponds with your system menu.):

3.3 or 3.4 to 3.2 (http://www.mediafire.com/?4u6o82c4aqke5od)
I believe this one came from somewhere on GBATemp, but I have not been able to relocate the source, so I'm not sure who to credit. Just note, I did not make the downgrade tutorial.

4.2 or above to 4.1
Quote from: Hells Guardian on GSCentral
I honestly Highly advise that anyone using 4.2 ditch it imeadiately! I say this not because 4.2 is a bad version but rather because it offers no added to functionality AT ALL!! It was nothing but an attack on Homebrew both legit and piracy related!

I appologize for the wait as my system was turned into a paper weight by the 4.2 update. Fortunately I was able to recover it with a Nand programer. I love that damn mod chip. I was able to install a copy of bootmii boot2 back into the nand with the nand flasher and from there fully recover the system menu.

Now for the information all have been waiting for.

It's a simple task really here is the download containing everything you will need.
This download is just Over 76MB So It May Take Awhile! It took me 9 minutes with Low End Cable Internet to download... Also took about the same to upload though. This pack works for NTSC-U. Use at your own risk for the other regions!

[url]http://www.mediafire.com/?tw2nmzkmnjk[/url]

1. (skip this if you already have the HBC and bootmii IOS or boot2 installed on the system) use your preffered exploit to launch the Hackmii installer and install the latest version of bootmii and the HBC. (I personally prefer not to update my HBC as it does cause compatability issues with many of the older apps because of the new Title ID. All apps still function but many will fail to load back into the HBC.) I Recomend BannerBombv2 for this. I can be downloade here. You will also find the instructions on how to use it here. I will not be answering questions on this.

[url]http://bannerbomb.qoid.us/index.new.php[/url]

go here to find the latest version of Team Twiizers Hackmii installer.

[url]http://bootmii.org/[/url]

2. Copy the contents of the download to the root of your SD card. I advise that you use a fresh SD card for this.

3. From the HBC run the Cboot2 installer. This will install a custom version of the bootmii ppc executable file to the SD card.

4. Launch bootmii. Either boot2 or IOS version will work. Instead of loading bootmii you should see in the top left the words cBoot2 dol loader or something similar. After a brief time a version of wad manager will boot.

5. From the cBoot2 loaded wad manager App install CIOSv9.wad followed by IOS60.wad then the System Menu Wad for your region. I have inluded System Menu 4.1 for all three regions.

Thats it. Now you will be on system menu 4.1 with an old version of Waninkoko's CIOS installed. From here install the latest version of Waninkoko's CIOS and any other hacks you may want. I've also included Start patch 4.1 for all three regions. I advise installing at the very least the disk update check block patch. As an added bonus I've also included a CSM theme for NTSC users on System menu 4.1 that can be installed with the included mymenuify app.

6. What to Do If a Game/Channel Requires a Wii System Update

"I just bought [insert name of new game here]! And it says I HAVE to update my Wii! I HAVE to play it!"
or
"I want to go on the Wii Shop Channel, but it says I have to update my Wii!"

^^^ If either (or both) of the above are you, follow this section carefully, and you'll be able to play the game/use the channel without having to update your Wii.

A. Disc Updates for System Menus 4.0 and Above

If you have a Wii on versions 4.0 - 4.3, use the Preloader app to patch the system to skip disc update checks easily. This first tutorial only fixes DISC updates. If you want to access the Wii Shop Channel, use the third tutorial below.

1. Download the most recent version of the Preloader (.30) here: http://www.mediafire.com/?fwxo3qs7nym2353 (http://www.mediafire.com/?fwxo3qs7nym2353).

2. Launch the app through one of the methods explained above. If you're using the Homebrew Channel, rename the .dol file "boot.dol" and place it in a folder called "Preloader" in the "apps" folder of your SD Card. (In other words, your SD Card should look like apps > Preloader > boot.dol)

3. Follow the instructions in the Readme. (Press + to install the Preloader.) Once it's finished installing, you can delete these files off of your SD Card.

4. Use the information found here (http://wiibrew.org/wiki/Preloader/hacks) to create a hacks.ini file. Copy and paste the codes for your system menu into Notepad, then when saving, change "Save as type" to "All files", then name the file "hacks.ini". Place it in the root of your SD Card.

5. Turn on the Wii. The Preloader should launch automatically. Enable the hacks that you want. It is extremely important to enable the "Skip Disc Update Check" if you want it.

6. Once that it is finished, you can delete the Preloader off of your Wii by running the install tool again and hitting - instead of +. You can also leave the Preloader if you want to keep it there. Now, whenever you try to play a game that has a system update on it, it should skip the check, allowing you to play the game without updating your Wii.

7. If the game doesn't seem to be working correctly (refuses to load), run Gecko OS with the disc in the Wii. If the game requires a certain IOS to play, Gecko OS will alert you to that and install it for you. This will not update your entire Wii system menu, but rather just the IOS that is needed.

B. Disc Updates for System Menus Below 4.0

If you are on a system menu below 4.0 and have bought a new game that requires a system update, follow this tutorial.

1. Download the 3.3/3.4 to 3.2 downgrade file located here http://www.mediafire.com/?4u6o82c4aqke5od (http://www.mediafire.com/?4u6o82c4aqke5od).

2. If you are not on system menu 3.2, follow the readme instructions and downgrade to it. Make sure that all of the files in the "Put onto SD Card" are on your SD Card.

3. Load the Starfall app and read the instructions carefully. (Press B + 1, not B + 2)

4. Make sure to apply the "Skip Disc Update Check" patch.

5. After it's done, you can remove these files from your SD Card.

6. If a certain game doesn't seem to be working correctly (refuses to load), run Gecko OS with the disc in the Wii. If the game requires a certain IOS to play, Gecko OS will alert you to that and install it for you. This will not update your entire Wii system menu, but rather just the IOS that is needed.

C. Wii Shop Channel Updates for All System Menus

This tutorial will show you how to update your Wii Shop Channel so that it can be accessed without updating the entire system.

1. Download the latest version of WiiSCU (0.25) here: http://www.mediafire.com/?833v8xzdo5497fg (http://www.mediafire.com/?833v8xzdo5497fg).

2. Extract the folder and place it in the "apps" folder of your SD Card if you're using the Homebrew Channel. (Make sure that your SD Card looks like apps > WiiSCU > boot.dol/icon.png/meta.xml)

3. Run WiiSCU and select the Wii Shop Channel.

4. When it's finished, you can delete the file off of your SD Card.

Done. Now please people, STOP UPDATING THE WII JUST BECAUSE A GAME/CHANNEL WANTS YOU TO. These are very simple workarounds for that.

6. Other Tutorials
Here are some links to other useful tutorials. These are probably more in depth or easier to understand than parts of this post. I've attempted to put them in a relative order from easiest to hardest. If you think there's a good tutorial that I should add to this list, please tell me.

Oh, hey, n00b question right here!

Specifications:
-BrawlBox v0.63d
-AdobePhotoshop CS2
-Microsoft Vista (with updates)
-Brawl Minus v1.0 (NTSC)

I know the process to editing a texture. I exported what I wanted to change, modified them without renaming, replaced, and saved the texture as a .pac AND a .pcs.

Now, that didn't work, and then I found out about texture previews. I can't preview (it freezes) when I try to. No, I am not trying to preview the shadow. That I can do just fine. Other than previewing, a texture'll look fine, til I try it in-game and it doesn't show at all.

Yes, I named all the textures properly, and placed them in the correct folders.

Thanks in adv for any help you can provide

Hmm... That sounds... odd. A couple of questions, though.

1. What are you trying to make a texture for? (A menu/character/stage?)
EDIT: I'm assuming you mean a character, since you said .pcs and .pac. Which character?

2. When you say it freezes when you preview it, you mean BrawlBox, right? What does it tell you? Does it just close or does it give you an error message?

Yup, BrawlBox. Making a texture for Kirby.

I'll try to preview the texture (in the correct and specified way), the preview window opens. All I get is a blank window, and even after waiting 20 mins, it didn't load, and I have a damn fast laptop. Click once on the blank screen, and I get the Vista message saying that the program is not responding; do I want to restart or close program?

Thanks

Hmm... That's odd. That's never happened to me or anyone I've heard about. You have .NET Framework v3.5 SP1 (http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyID=ab99342f-5d1a-413d-8319-81da479ab0d7&displaylang=en=en) and a video card that supports OpenGL 1.1 or higher, right? You probably do, but I'm just making sure.

One more thing, is the Kirby model you are using as a base the original FitKirby00.pac (as in unedited) or one that has like a vertex hack or polygon removal?

It's a regular texture hack, no vertexing, removals, or palette (sp?) overload.
Foxxy's currently trying to help me though, so 's all good, thanks though.

What are you trying to do? If you already have the Homebrew Channel installed, you can run Gecko OS through that. What kind of SD Card do you have? What are you trying to do by going to the Album? I'm not sure I understand.

B. Riivolution
This app works like the File Patch code, but it can be used for any game and any file. The only downside is that it is a little more complicated than the File Patch code. You can either use this or the File Patch code to load files for Brawl.
*Note* For Riivolution, ALL files must be named EXACTLY as they are on the ISO. (Ex. For the file "mu_menumain_en.pac", you must remove the "_en" to use it with the File Patch code, but you must keep it to use it with Riivolution.

1. Download the latest version of Riivolution from here: [url]http://rvlution.net/riivolution.zip.[/url]
2. Extract it to somewhere on your computer.
3. Download the File Patch XML for Brawl here: [url]http://rvlution.net/riivolution/images/5/5c/SSBBfiles.xml.[/url] (This is so that you can place files where they would go if you were using the File Patch code, since most people provide instructions based on that.)
4. Copy the "riivolution" folder out of the "apps" folder on your computer and paste it into the "apps" folder on your SD Card.
5. Create a folder on the root of your SD Card called "riivolution" and copy and paste the File Patch XML into there.
6. If you want to use codes along with Riivolution, follow the steps below. (Skip to step 14 if you've already followed the instructions for Gecko OS above.)
7. Create a folder on the root of your SD Card called "codes".
8. Download the Code Manager here: [url]http://www.mediafire.com/?e2dzz7zdmcds252.[/url]
9. Extract it somewhere on your computer.
10. Open the Code Manager. Look to where it says "Game ID". Fill this in with the ID of the game you are making the codes list for. (Ex. Brawl's ID is RSBE01 for NTSC-U, RSBP01 for PAL, and RSBJ01 for NTSC-J) Go to where it says "Game Name" and type in the name of the game.
11. Find the codes that you want to use. A couple of good sites to check out are [url]http://geckocodes.org/[/url] and [url]http://board.gscentral.org/forum.php.[/url]
12. To add a code, click on "Add a code/comment/category" and type in a name for the code. It should appear in bold. Click on it, then copy and paste the code into where it says "Code contents". Make sure to click "Store modifications" after you paste in the code.
13. When you are done adding codes, go to File > Save as TXT File. Then, make sure your SD Card is in the computer and click "Export to GCT". Select the drive for your SD Card and click on "Store".
14. Go to here: [url]http://www.mediafire.com/?sharekey=6124ef087d03b5a9819d3eb78bf1479d79557004672710560cf82e11d2b2bd8465b36d064e4faac5a2a7740380de0aff[/url] and download the file for your disc region.
15. Extract it onto your computer and move both files to the "riivolution" folder on the root of your SD Card.
On Step 3

The Xml file for Riivolution doesnt work :( sorry to be a troll, thanks a lot for this ;D


Which one? The one for the Brawl file loading or Ocarina? As far as I know, I haven't had any other complaints about this. Are you sure it's the XML? Is it in the right location? Is Riivolution itself working?
No, i mean i cant download it. When i go to the site, it just stays blank


Which one are you trying to download? The site may have been down for a little while. Have you tried to redownload it?


Hi, noob question right here.

i have a PAL 4.3 wii (yes, i update it T.T) it's hacked, with cIOS 249 with IOS 37 as base (REV 19)

so i installed everything i need homebrew, gecko 1.9, etc

my problem is this: when i try to go to the Album (for brawl installation) my wii crashes. =/

PS: i followed this tutorial [url]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rVDttrE6CtQ[/url]

thank you and sorry my Bad english


What are you trying to do? If you already have the Homebrew Channel installed, you can run Gecko OS through that. What kind of SD Card do you have? What are you trying to do by going to the Album? I'm not sure I understand.



i'm trying to install brawl+ to use textures from this wonderfull site =D  (remember i have a PAL wii and PAL SSBB)
I have a 2GB SD card

Are you using Riivolution or the File Patch Code? If you're using the PAL version of the File Patch Code, it's apparently buggy with CSPs and the like. If you're using Riivolution, mu_menumain needs to be named "mu_menumain_en.pac" and placed in "RSBP > pfmenu2" and common5.pac needs to be named "common5_en.pac" and placed in "pf > system".

If you're using the File Patch Code, I'd suggest switching to Riivolution since the PAL File Patch is a little limited.

Whenever I try to make a new .brstm file with BrawlBox, the program only lets me work with the first 1.65 seconds. Obviously, this won't do, so how can I get the program to read data for the whole song?

Using Riivolution and am RSBE01 and got most everything to work last night and got some custom characters and models in and such but today I realized that my codes werent working and realized I had ocarina disabled, but when I enable it and launch the game, I am left with only a blank screen (have tried both VI hook and KPAD hook). 

Have I missed something somewhere?

Since you're PAL, StrapEn.pac may not work. You might want to try renaming it to StrapFr.pac or StrapSp.pac, depending on your language.

Personally, I don't like BrawlBox for making BRSTMs. I use the BCSM-GUI 1.5 (Link is in the first post I think), and make the loops with a separate audio editor (like Audacity).

What codes do you have on? Make sure you don't have the File Patch code in your GCT. It doesn't work with Riivolution.


Title: Re: The Complete N00B's Guide to Brawl Hacking

I don't have the File Patch Code (or at least not anymore, originally I was trying to set up with the gecko OS but I couldn't get that to work so I switched over to Riivolution and took out the File Patch Code.

The codes i'm using are all from a code pack that was on a download link from one of the menu hacks in the brawl vault.  Basic stuff like splitting the pokemon and unlimited replay time.

If needed I can load up the .txt and paste all the codes here if it's possible one of those is messing things up.

Edit: Ok, so I did some more searching and i found I was missing files (don't I just feel like an idiot now), but now my codes won't work.  It loads up the game and all now but its not putting in the unrestricted camera on pause/replay or the greater than 3 minute replay time.  I havn't really tested any other codes yet cause its easiest to just throw on a match for 4 minutes and pause at the beginning to check camera bounds.

I'm not using any brawl+ or anything special like that, just loading up normal ol' brawl (with some modded textures that i've gotten to work) and have the .gct file in the x:/codes folder.  (I also tried x:/data/gecko/codes/  because I was reading through ToonJDub's guide to Riivolution and at some point he said that's where he has to keep his, but that didn't work either)

I put the .pcs file into private/wii/app/rsbe/Fighter/ness/00.pcs and my wii started making this whine when I got to the map selection screen. Then, I realized that my sd card went into the F drive, not the E drive. So I change it to private/wii/app/rsbf/Fighter/ness/00.pcs and run it again, getting that whining sound once again. I copied the code for gecko letter for letter and have the most recent versions of everything, does anyone know what could be wrong?

EDIT: It's NTSC (US) if that helps.

The file should be named FitNess00.pcs. It belongs in private > wii > app > RSBE > pf > Fighter > Ness > FitNess00.pcs.

you are fantastic

edit: wait up, it's still whining

maybe i need to fix the capitalization on the folders?

or maybe it's because i have another file that may not be named right either, but I'm not using that one.

No, it's just that file. I had one for zero suit samus, but that had two files and two files is way too complicated.

It currently resides in F:\private\wii\app\RSBE\pf\Fighter\Ness\FitNess00.pcf

Specifically, what file is it? There might be something wrong with the file that's causing the freezing. Did you download it from BrawlVault? The location of the file is correct, and even if it wasn't, the game wouldn't freeze, it would just not load the file. Does the game freeze without hacks on? What hacks do you have? Just the File Patch code?

Post by: MayaFey on September 04, 2010, 09:24:45 AM
It's a ness recolor straight out of the vault. I can try a different one if you like.
On a side note, the game starts fine without the code, and I only have the file patch code.

You might want to try using Riivolution instead of Gecko OS. You won't have to use the File Patch code, only Riivolution. The guide to setting it up is in the first post. Also, Riivolution will work with SDHC (Bigger than 2 GB) cards, although you won't be able to save replays, snapshots, or stages to your SD card from Brawl while you're using it. (You can just launch Brawl normally if you want to move replays, snapshots, and stages to your SD (not SDHC) card though.)

Question: I'm moving from Gecko to Riivolution so that I may replace the SSBB intro with Star Wars Alpacas (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1gZ0x8AVaBI). I read that the some files need to be named differently, and I was just wondering, which files that I have would I have to rename for them to work? Is it just the ones in the menu folders, or do I have to add "_en" to all of my files? I replace stages, fighter .pac's, fighter .pcs's, and music. The usual.

Also: now that I have a program that can replace the cinematics, what folder do I put the files in and what do I rename them? I can't find anything on that. O_o

I tried updating to a new SD card with more space. I am, in fact, running out of space on mine.

I got an 8 GB SD that is, in fact, compatible with Homebrew. The list said so, so I believed that everything Homebrew uses should be compatible as well.

Everything seems fine until it applies SD codes through Gecko. It SAYS it's applying the codes, but nothing is changed when Brawl actually starts.

All I'm asking is the name of an SD card I can simply order online. One that's larger than 2GB that works perfectly fine for Gecko OS. If one exists, that is.

EDIT: Okay, so apparently I can only use Riivolution for cards larger than 2 GB? If true, how exactly do I go about that for Brawl? Sorry in advance if I'm being a pain.

Now, my problem. I've edited common5.pac and put it in the system folder, but I can't seem to change any of my character select portraits. During fights and on the results screen they have them, but on the menu it still says "Lucario" "Meta Knight" "Donkey Kong" etc. How can I fix this? Am I doing this all wrong?

I am using the newest Riivolution to do this.

The reason that music has static or a new song randomly plays is because you have overwrote on an old brstm and they have fused together. Best thing to do is to make sure the song you are putting in the folder is not already in the folder (eg: A01.BRSTM is already in the folder so you can't put another A01.BRSTM in that same folder.) Delete the old one and put your new song in the folder. Just do not overwrite the songs or you'll technically be fusing them together (in brawl hack retrospective)

This is not true cause of a few things.
1. The files get overwritten not fused.
2. I overwrite every single song i have every time and i have yet had this nor have i ever met someone who had this.
3. Overwriting a file is just saying: i remove this bit and place this bit and that for every bit. So it's not fused in any way.

ok I'm probably retarded, but I still can't figure out some things.
1. whats the difference between a texture and model?
2. whats the difference between a .pac and .pcs?
3.what is Fit(Character)MotionEtc.pac used for? and how is it different from Fit(Character).pac


4.

In general I'm confused about how many file you can put in the pf/character folder in your SD card.

for example in
Quanno's Ichigo V2
http://forums.kc-mm.com/Gallery/BrawlView.php#ByUserID=3024&Moderated=All



what do these files do?

inside is

fitIke0#.pac
fitike0#.pcs
fitike.pac


If I understand correctly, the one without a number is supposed to be the moveset.
But which one is the thing that makes the sword trace red?

If I understand correctly, the one without a number is supposed to be the moveset.
But which one is the thing that makes the sword trace red?

1. A texture is the most basic editable part of Brawl. Textures are generally every visible design, color, or picture found on a character, stage, menu, etc. (For example, on characters, there are generally separate textures for clothes, skin, hair, armor/accessories, eyes, face, etc.) Models are the actual 3D figures that the textures are located on. A character model is usually edited through vertex hacking. (For example, Cloud over Ike has edited hair, an enlarged sword, etc.) Models and textures are both located in the FitCharacter##.pac/.pcs files.

2. A .pcs file is simply a compressed .pac file. The .pac file is used to load the transforming characters and in the single player modes. .pcs files are used in normal matches. For all characters, it's important to have the .pcs file. The .pac file is only needed for transforming characters (listed in the OP) or if you want to have the texture/model visible in other modes besides the normal one.

3. You are correct. The FitIke.pac is the moveset (PSA) file. It also makes the sword trace red, since that is part of the PSA.

Is it possible to have PSAs of a character while not overwriting the original and still being able to choose their other textures? Because every PSA I tried it always comes with a FitCharacter.pac without any numbers so I have to replace the original one meaning I'll never be able to be the original character as long as the PSA is present.

Hey, I'm a bit new to Minus so I'll be asking a lot of stuff here. If anyone can answer as many as they can I'd appreciate it.

1. I downloaded two stages from here: "STGFINAL(HYRULEFIELD).pac" and "Castle Cave (Color).pac". Now I don't know what to do with them. I just want to know what I have to do or where I have to place these files so that I can play on these two stages in Brawl. Picture of files below. Also, the st_plankton.rel that came with Castle Cave is in /module.
([url]http://i52.tinypic.com/nzei42.png[/url])

2. Is it possible to have PSAs of a character while not overwriting the original and still being able to choose their other textures? Because every PSA I tried it always comes with a FitCharacter.pac without any numbers so I have to replace the original one meaning I'll never be able to be the original character as long as the PSA is present.


2. Currently one charcter= one moveset. A couple of people are working on "Clone" engines, but untill they finish, which could be several months from now if ever, each character can only have one moveset. so Unfortunatly, it is impossible to have Naruto over Ike, with his moveset verse the original Ike.

Oh ok I see.

Next question:

With stages, what are .rel files for? I know how to use them and where to put them, but what do they really do? Why do some stages from this site come with them and some don't (and usually don't require them if they don't come with it)?

.rel files are like extra files for a character/stage. If you were able to port a .rel to an alloy for example, in theory, they will be able to ledge grab, do specials guard, dodge, and etc.

I don't quite understand. I thought they were only used to allow you to replace a regular vBrawl stage with a hacked one?

Also, why can't alloys do any of those things? I don't even have the alloys yet.

3. You will need Brawl's original files to base your hacks off of. All of the files except for the movies can be found here: [url]http://www.mediafire.com/?sharekey=bf68243dc4c908b28d78a0e5552916095d6170349cac00195be6ba49b5870170[/url] ([url]http://www.mediafire.com/?sharekey=bf68243dc4c908b28d78a0e5552916095d6170349cac00195be6ba49b5870170[/url]).

.rel files are like extra files for a character/stage. If you were able to port a .rel to an alloy for example, in theory, they will be able to ledge grab, do specials guard, dodge, and etc.

I don't quite understand. I thought they were only used to allow you to replace a regular vBrawl stage with a hacked one?

Also, why can't alloys do any of those things? I don't even have the alloys yet.
As you can see, not ALL stages need a .rel. And alloys can't do those things to make spiking them to submission easier.

/sarcasm.

Open the .pcs file in BrawlBox, then go to File > Save As... Choose "PAC Archive (.pac)" from "Save as type..." and save it.

You don't need HBC to get stages. Anything works: Riivolution, HBC, Gecko, etc. I use Gecko and Stack Smash and I have tons of them.

Also, all you have to do if you want Final Frustration, just download it and rename the .pac file to "STGFINAL" if it already isn't. If it requires a .rel file, make sure you get 'st_final.rel' and you should be good to go. That's all you really need to do to get hacked stages to work.

Where can i get that file?Edit: Solved!
And what would happen if i play a stage on wifi that is not just a skin?

Edit: What to do after being in the StackSmash menu? Do i need Gecko (or something else) or is StackSmash enough for using costum stages from the Brawl Vault?

If the person you're playing with does not have the exact same custom hacked stage as you on Wi-Fi, then you will desync, meaning that both players will not have the same results.

You need Gecko OS. Stack Smash is just this thing that disguises itself in the Stage Builder mode as the Gecko OS loader. Once you get Gecko, every time you enter Stage Builder you should be taken to a black screen with all this text on it, then the screen will turn green and weird, then you will be at the Gecko OS menu, then all you have to do from there is launch the game and it will load up all the stuff you have on your SD card.

It does that sometimes. What you need to do is reboot the Wii and try again. I have this happen to me sometimes and it's so annoying. When this happens just hold the power button for five seconds, then go back to Brawl and try it again. It took me as many as two reboots before I got it to work.

I read all the op, and it seems i cant find where to put the .pac files i downloaded..

I tried to put them into the character folder that should match.. And nothing happened..

The .pac files i downloaded are the ones for the super mewtwo and they are named FitLucarionMewtwo.pac, FitLucarioMotionEtc.pac and FitLucarioNoMewtwo.pac..

So what should i do with those in order to play that super awesome mewtwo ?

Thanks for the help, and sorry if its kinda obivous, but i really couldnt figure it out by myself..

Rename FitLucarioMewtwo.pac to FitLucario.pac. That's all you need to do and it should work. Get rid of FirLucarioNoMewtwo.pac since you do want to use him, so you wouldn't want the file that doesn't let you be him of course.

Just a couple more questions.. I havent try what you told me to do yet, but i was wondering if i need to launch Riivolution to take into consideration the modification from that .pca file or if simply launching the geckos OS thing would allow me to play with mewtwo?

With what i understood in the op, and what i already tried out, i think i need to launch Riivolution, right ? But right now, it tells me i need to reinstall ios37, so i gotta get a network connection.. -.-"

No you don't need Riivolution; it works with anything. I use Smash Stack and Gecko OS and I use that kind of stuff. Riivolution is the same as everything else except you can do movie hacks and sound effect hacks, and it also offers infinite space whereas Gecko/Smash Stack has limits on certain file sizes before it will freeze your game.

OK so basically, I just really want Shadow in Brawl. I got this guy's Shadow thingy and put it in the right place on my SD card. I then put the SD card in my Wii, run Brawl on Gecko with the code you said to put in for NTSC-U (which I have). Then, Gecko reads the code and disk sucsessfully, and then, Brawl starts up, and it's the same old Brawl. No Shadow. The guy's Shadow is over Donkey Kong, and, well DK is still DK. Sonic is still Sonic, and Shadow is nowhere to be found. PLEASE HELP!!

Don't rename it to FitLucario00 if it doesn't already have numbers. If you don't have one with numbers, you should get one. Just open up FitLucario.pac in BrawlBox, and save it as a .pcs file with the number of Lucario's color you want to replace.

Lucario's texture colors:

FitLucario00.pac  =  original
FitLucario01.pac  =  red
FitLucario02.pac  =  green
FitLucario04.pac  =  light blue
FitLucario05.pac  =  black/white/gold


FitLucario.pac is for a moveset.
FitLucaroMotionEtc.pac is to either help a moveset/texture with something.

You may need to have a .pcs with your .pac texture.

Just helping clarify things.

MotionEtc.pac are also for if animations are edited

Only time you should have a pac and pcs pair is if the character they're for can transform, or if you want to use them in single player mode (but I've palyed in single player with only a pcs and it worked).

I'm not really interested in creating my own PSA characters/textures but I just want to download ones everyone else has made (Sephiroth, Shadow, Geno, Cloud, Zero, etc.)

My problem is my psa hacks (i believe it's called) aren't working. Or they work sometimes. Like I start up Brawl with Gecko OS and maybe the first VS. match I do, the hacks seem to be working but then after that, the characters go back to their normal costumes/movesets.

And I also notice sometimes the custom character textures don't always show up but the moves still work even when I have FitCharacterxx files. (i.e. Sonic looks normal but he has the PSA Shadow's moveset.)

I'm certain my files are set up properly: private > wii > app > RSBE > pf > fighter
And within fighter I have all the correct character files (captain, dedede, diddy, donkey, etc.)

But I don't have .pcs/.pac files in all of the fighter files. (i assume the Brawl would just read those files off the disc itself?)

Is the reason my hacks aren't working because I need to have FitCharacterXX.pcs/.pac in EVERY fighter file?

I also have other unused files such as: pfmenu2, info, item, menu2, module, stage, sound, and system. I assume those are for the custom portraits, sounds, names, stage textures, menu backgrounds, etc. but as of right now, I would just like to have the custom characters.

Help would be greatly appreciated,
Windstar.

Do you mean like you play your game then it just puts everything back to normal?
Like i have Ichigo(MetaKnight) then i fight Mewtwo.After the fight is done it goes back to its normal game,and i have everything hacked.

I found out it was my SD card...it wasnt put right,it would slowly eject its self.Check yours.

Yeah, but with me the hacks just disappear. Like the first match I'll be playing as Cloud. And then the next match he's back to just regular Ike.

I'm sure my SD isn't ejecting. I've been constantly going back and forth from my computer to Wii trying to fix this but just couldn't. If my SD was ejecting, I definitely would have noticed.

I've had this happen to my Dark Samus PSA. Sometimes she works but sometimes she doesn't -- it's completely sporadic. My only guess is it's a bug in the PSA.

And I also notice sometimes the custom character textures don't always show up but the moves still work even when I have FitCharacterxx files. (i.e. Sonic looks normal but he has the PSA Shadow's moveset.)

I'm certain my files are set up properly: private > wii > app > RSBE > pf > fighter

Yes; you need to have .pcs files in every folder that contains texture hacks. You don't need .pac files unless it's for a transforming character (i.e. Samus/ZSS, PKMN Trainer, Bowser, Zelda/Sheik).

Brawl cannot read the files off the disc because it uses its own files. What happens is when you download texture hacks and place them in your SD card and run Gecko, it will make Brawl read your files instead of Brawl's.

I also have other unused files such as: pfmenu2, info, item, menu2, module, stage, sound, and system. I assume those are for the custom portraits, sounds, names, stage textures, menu backgrounds, etc. but as of right now, I would just like to have the custom characters.

Help would be greatly appreciated,
Windstar.

I'll give you a rundown of what they're all for:

pfmenu2 contains the main menu and title screen.
info > portrite is where you put your Battle Screen Portraits or HUD (picture of character where damage is displayed)
item not sure what goes in here
menu2 is probably the most commonly hacked folder. It contains the character selection screen (CSS) and stage selection screen (SSS). These two files can be edited to change just about anything on the CSS and SSS.
module is where all your .rel files go. Rel files are the "DNA" of stages. You can hex edit them to make them compatible with other stages. Usually you need .rel files to help use a hacked stage. The Module and Stage folders work together.
stage is the folder you put all your hacked stages in. It contains two child folders: "adventure" and "melee". Put all your hacked stages for vs. mode in "melee", and I think you put all your SSE hacked levels in "adventure".
sound is where all your SFX hacks go. You can only do this with Riivolution, though. It also contains a child folder called "strm" and in there you place all your custom Brawl music, or .brstm files.
system I'm not to entirely sure, but I think you go in here and edit its common3.pac if you're doing item hacks and maybe other types of hacks.

Hope I helped.

Thank you!! I'll try downloading all of the characters original .pcs/.pac files (excluding the FitCharacter00's since I will use those for the psa's) and see if that helps keep my psa characters on.

No problem. Did my folders analysis shed some light?

Well if there were custom textures that came with any of your hacked files you should go back to the Vault and re-download those files to obtain their .pcs or .pac files, or if they're still in your Recycle Bin go retrieve them. Not all PSAs come with custom textures as it all depends if the creator made any for them, but if some of yours did, you should go and get them back.

Oh yes, immense light!! I eventually plan on attempting to get some portraits, voices, and the like. It'll probably be more complicated with the Riivolution and BrawlBox and whatnot but we'll cross that bridge when we get there.

Oh, that's a good idea. Yeah, I actually downloaded 200 mb file. (that was preloaded with custom textures for every characters alt costumes, plus stage textures, and item textures, as well as custom portraits in the Character Select Screen.) Good thing I backed it up! I'll just put those back on my SD (except the FitCharacter00 of for my psa's of course) and I'll report how things work out. Thanks again!

Just remember to put all those hacks in their respective areas. Refer to my folders guide if you need to.

If you need help on how to add CSPs (character selection screen portraits) and name texts just let me know. They can all be accessed in the sc_selcharacter.pac in your menu2 folder. Everything CSS related can be found in sc_selcharacter.pac.

Could be a bad texture or stage? Most likely it's the stage if it freezes after you select it.

Thanks for your suggestion but,I don't think so the only texture i ve only tried running character textures, and one at a time, and i ve tried 3 different popular textures, all of which had the same result of the game freezing as soon as i picked a map

As long as i dont try to use any textures everything works perfectly.  The textures that froze my game were from this site they were: Mario Mafio, the most downloaded mario texture, the carbon alloy rob, and falcon rob v2.  I haven't tried any other kinds of textures.

Wait a second.....I think I might know your problem.

Do you have the code "Disable Custom Stages" on? Because the only time my game froze at the stage select screen was when I didn't have the code, but when I put it on it no longer froze.

Code:
Disable Custom Stages
* 046B841C 48000040

Try it ^ Add it to your GCT.

If you're gonna use Riivolution, why do you have st/st_080805_0933.bin? That's only if you use Smash Stack. If you're using Riivo you don't need that.

Gf...? You mean pf? Anyway, I don't use Riivolution so I don't know why you don't have the pf folder and everything else you need. When I got Smash Stack it came with the 'private' folder and everything in there like 'pf' and all that. Just so you know, you may have to create folders sometimes, too.

Well, you need the 'private' folder with all the folders and files already in it. I think you can get that here (http://www.smashmods.com/forum/misc.php?page=bmdownload). After you have that then all you need to do is just browse through the Brawl Vault and download anything you like in there.

It will say who it goes over in the Brawl Vault. For example, it would say [Character-Texture-Sonic]. With that information, put it in Sonic's folder in pf/fighter.

Are you talking about FitSonic.pac? Yes, do not ever touch that unless you downloaded a Sonic PSA, which you would just replace your old .pac with the one that came in your download. If not, then leave it alone. That file contains the moveset and the guts of the character.

I don't know about the workings of Gecko OS because I don't have Homebrew. The method I use to load my hacks is called Smash Stack which is an exploit. I go into Stage Builder, and it loads Gecko by exploiting a flaw in Brawl's Stage Builder or something. Then I just click launch game and it does.

Lol so you have Smash Stack, didn't know it and tried to install Riivo?

Anyway, I'll give you a guide I made for one of my friends. I think it helped him install it because he never asked me any questions after I gave it to him.

I copied all this from Smash Mods website and re-edited it super macho big time to help you not get confused because I sure as hell was when I did this.
[SIZE="4"]Stack Smash Install Method[/SIZE]

This only works for NTSC games. Sorry PAL.

Step 1: Before you do anything, make sure you go to /private/wii/app/RSBE/st/, and remove all custom stages in there -- copy them to your computer if you want to keep them saved. After that, remove all stages on your Wii's memory -- ultimately you should have no custom stages at all on both your SD card and Wii console.

Step 2: Download the Brawl- official release from here (http://"http://www.mediafire.com/?el8iy3k5l3yh62n") and extract everything in that .zip folder onto your SD card root. Replace your 'private' folder with the one that came with this if you already have an existing one. Everything else stays on the root of your SD card, so don't touch them.

Step 3: Download this GCT (http://"http://ioj.com/v/9tidu") (a GCT contains all the codes for Brawl Minus to run. With the program Code Manager, you can either add codes or remove them as you wish in the future), rename it to RSBE01.gct, and replace the old one in the codes folder with it (rename it to RSBE01.gct obviously).

Step 4: Launch the game normally. Then, go to Stage Builder. You should get a black screen filled with code, and then it should turn green and jump to Gecko OS. Launch game by pressing the A button on the first option. Don't worry about all the other options right now as it's not important. For future reference, the D-Pad is used to move up and down on the menu. Pressing Start will take you back to the Wii menu screen.
After you get it set up and running properly, your good to go.

Read my post I edited it a lot. Also, Step 3's link has the same explanation as Step 2's in which I provided in the edit above.

Here is Step 3's link: http://ioj.com/v/9tidu. This is a GCT made for Smash Stack. Put it in your /codes folder in your SD card root.

They're all still textures. When it has "Model" in the name, I think that means the texture was made using a model from another game. Doesn't affect anything though it's still a plain old texture.

Imports ARE the imports from other games etc.
PSAs are moveset edits.

Model means vertex. It means an altered game model.

I think import is using models from other games to texture a character. But I'm not sure. Anyway, it's still a plain old texture.

PSA aka Project Smash Attack is a character with an altered moveset and hitboxes. This is the only one that's not a texture, but it still goes in the same folder as all your other textures.

Model means vertex. It means an altered game model.

Oh ok; thanks for clearing that up.

Ok I must be doing something wrong when it comes to PSA or the swappingg of characters. I put the file in and replace it with the original but nothing happens. What am I doing wrong? Sometimes even the texture files I put in don't work.

What PSA are you downloading first? Are you putting the files in the character's folder in pf/fighter it's supposed to go in? Are they all named correctly? You should at least have a Fit(character).pac and Fit(character)MotionEtc.pac to make the PSA work.

EDIT: Oh wait. I think I see what your saying. So any of them that I download that doesnt originally have the original name from the file, I have to rename it it to that?

Like this?

FitSonic.pac

Downloaded File: Mephiles FitSonic01.pac

I would take out the Mephiles and it would work?

Exactly.

However, take out the 01 if it's not a .pcs file. Your file should be changed from "Mephiles FitSonic01.pac" to "FitSonic.pac".

I'm curious as to why the .pac came with "01" -- you can't assign a PSA to a costume of a character, that's only for .pcs files.

Well he was just talking about a PSA before that post so I got confused.

Rename Mephiles FitSonic01.pac to FitSonic01.pac. Then, you need to get a .pcs, just use BrawlBox and convert that .pac to .pcs.

Those things come separate; you'll have to go browse through the Brawl Vault for custom stages and audio. And I didn't give you anything; what are you talking about?

Also, I need to know what type of audio you're talking about? Music or SFX? Because only Riivolution can do SFX.

I'm confused...... I know you mean the melee folder, but what I said still stands: download the custom stages from the Brawl Vault to put in that folder. Same with your music. You're not supposed to have anything in those folders at first; you must get them yourself.

Yeah. Just make sure the file that you downloaded is the same name as the level you're replacing -- the same fashion as how you renamed your Mephiles Sonic texture. Example: You download a stage hack that goes over 75m and it is named "STGZONE3.PAC" -- rename that to "STGDONKEY.PAC" as that is the name of 75m's file.

For audio, same thing. Rename your custom music to whatever one in Brawl you want to replace. Example: You download a song from the Black Eyed Peas named "A05.brstm" and you want to replace the Battlefield song with it. Rename this file to "X04.brstm" as that is the name of Battlefield's Battlefield song.

Refer to this guide (http://forums.kc-mm.com/index.php?topic=6.0) for a list of the stages' names.

Rel files just allow you to play a stage over another one. For example, if you get a stage that's based off of Final Destination and you want to play it over Flat Zone 2, you would get Final Destination's .rel (st_final.rel) and use a program called Stage Switcher to convert the st_final.rel into a st_gw.rel (Flat Zone 2's rel), and also make sure the .pac is also named "STGGW.PAC". You can also use HxD to hex edit the rels to get the same result.

To get alloys you'll need ASF1nk's Custom CSS. Go to this thread (http://forums.kc-mm.com/index.php?topic=6201.0), make sure you read it very carefully, then go to the bottom and get the codes that you need for the Alloys.

If you can't find it in the Brawl Vault it doesn't exist; the Brawl Vault is the only place on the web that I know of where you can get hacks.

Technically, the site rules state this: "Necroposting – posting in a thread that’s been dead for over a week." However, I don't believe this applies to stickied threads. Besides, mini-modding is generally frowned upon (Though I don't think it's actually a posted rule here), so you aren't exactly being perfect yourself FlamesuruSen19. I think that posting something completely irrelevant to the topic in order to point out a violation of forum rules is considered spam though.

On a more on topic note: Is there anything (Links, version numbers, information, etc.) that needs to be updated in the guide? It's been a while since I changed anything, so I just want to make sure.

You're not SUPPOSED to rename it private again.

Just follow the tut again to the letter. And try renaming the current private folder (the one that the wii normally puts on your SD card) To "private old" that SHOULD fix it. If my hunch is right lol

You're only supposed to have one GCT file containing all the codes you're using and it should be in your codes folder on your SD card root.

The newer version of Riivolution now runs on Homebrew, so the instructions might need to be updated, as well.

The mediafire link to the two files for riivolution at step 14 isn't working. All it says is engine loading and nothing is happening. Could you give me another link :sonic:

I've looked all over, and I'm sure there is some place that will tell me how to do this if I keep looking, but I'm at my wit's end.

I'm trying to swap an animation for Charizard, specifically his side-b with his f-air. It looks fine in Brawlbox, but his tail, feet, and rear end stick into the ground.

How do I prevent them from doing that? Or can someone point me to a tutorial that will tell me?

Hi i know i'm a noob right now, and i was wondering, is there a way to add an extra slot, because the only thing i can actually do, is to modify characters color slots, but i will like to have more than that amount, for example Link only haz
00-Original
01-Red
03-Blue
04-Dark
05-White/Light Blue
06-Yellow
and after i put an texture for each one of them, i can't add more textures, is there a way to add more slots or more "color slots"?

No. Not yet at least. Dantarion was working on it.

one slot psa's r not possible as of now only the fit(char).pac alters the moveset. the fit(char)##.pac/pcs is only a costume.

Characters belong in the following location:

I don't know if it's just me or not, but I'm not seeing this anywhere on the SD card.
Any ideas?

Code manager is run through the wii in the apps folder on your SD card (if you don't have an apps folder make one)

The first posts explains where to put character files but it doesn't explain where to put CSS, Result Screen Portraits, Battle Portraits etc.. Can anyone help me out?
CSS is the sc_selcharacter.pac file in the menu2 folder or the common5.pac file. Result screen portraits go in menu > common > char_bust_tex.

I don't mean to be overly rude, but if you can't even create folders and put things into them, you shouldn't even bother doing this; you should be researching how to use computers.

And anytime you see a file path that you don't have, of course you have to make it. They don't make themselves.

Basically this, it's common sense nowadays that if a folder isn't there and it's needed then you create it yourself.

so yes Bolt, you make the folders yourself. EVERY folder that you need and that's not there.

My Sd card looks like this
F:\private\wii\app\RSBE\pf\stage\melee
I have named the stage folders exactly like they are listed and i put a pac in STGBATTLEFIEILD.PAC and then i launch gecko (I have 1.9) from homebrew.
It works fine up until i try to load the level. It does not change battle field still looks like normal old battle field. Here is the Pac i am using. Its called Tropical field

A. Gecko OS
This will allow you to load codes for most any Wii game. It is definitely needed if you plan on using the File Patch Code, a popular method of loading Brawl hacks. You can either use this or Riivolution to load files.

1. Download Gecko OS here: [url]http://wiird.l0nk.org/projectfiles/Gecko1931.zip.[/url]
2. Extract the file to your computer.
3. Go to Gecko1931 > Gecko1931 > HBC > Gecko1931.
4A. If you are using the Homebrew Channel, copy the last "Gecko1931" folder and paste it into your "apps" folder.
4B. If you are using any other method, copy the "boot.elf" file out of the "Gecko1931" folder and paste it into the root of your SD Card.
5. Create a folder on the root of your SD Card called "codes".
6. Download the Code Manager here: [url]http://www.mediafire.com/?e2dzz7zdmcds252.[/url]
7. Extract it somewhere on your computer. I've included a basic .txt file for using the File Patch code. (NTSC-U only though. PAL and NTSC-J users will have to create their own, sorry.)
8. Open the Code Manager. Look to where it says "Game ID". Fill this in with the ID of the game you are making the codes list for. (Ex. Brawl's ID is RSBE01 for NTSC-U, RSBP01 for PAL, and RSBJ01 for NTSC-J) Go to where it says "Game Name" and type in the name of the game.
9. Find the codes that you want to use. A couple of good sites to check out are [url]http://geckocodes.org/[/url] and [url]http://board.gscentral.org/forum.php.[/url]
10. To add a code, click on "Add a code/comment/category" and type in a name for the code. It should appear in bold. Click on it, then copy and paste the code into where it says "Code contents". Make sure to click "Store modifications" after you paste in the code.
11. When you are done adding codes, go to File > Save as TXT File. Then, make sure your SD Card is in the computer and click "Export to GCT". Select the drive for your SD Card and click on "Store".

uhm i have a pal wii 3.4
my game freezes when i choose the custom stage i downloaded from this site
to be exact it was the KYUUBI chamber

(i got the code for pal gecko and homebrew character hacks work fine)

Post by: sonic99 on July 07, 2011, 01:02:14 AM
ok, I need some help.
I'm so close I can feel it! lol
I have Homebrew, Riivolution, and I'm pretty sure my SD card is set up properly.
I downloaded law_law's Knuckles over Pikachu. I took every file from that folder and put it in my SDcard under private/wii/app/rsbe/pf/Fighter/pikachu/
You said something about having to change the file names but I don't know what to change them to. Some files include common5_en.pac, FitPikachu1.pac, InfFace074.brref ...

Also, I open the Riivolution channel and have no idea what to do.
What should I set "Ocarina Handler" to? (right now it's on "Disabled")
I assume you set "Codes" to "Enabled."

When I choose a stage, everything freezes before the brawl even starts.

Thanks in advance if you can help me.
and let me know if you need some more information!


Title: Re: The Complete N00B's Guide to Brawl Hacking
Post by: sonic99 on July 08, 2011, 08:37:42 PM
I hope nobody minds a friendly little bump...

In addition, I've noticed in some videos, people have an option in Riivolution called "basic file replacement."
Do I need that?


Title: Re: The Complete N00B's Guide to Brawl Hacking
Post by: sonic99 on July 09, 2011, 06:03:44 PM
I've done alot of reading and managed to fix it myself with the help of some people giving me needed files.
If anyone wants, I can try to break down some instructions into non-hacker talk and send people what they need

In your Riivolution guide this link doesn't work for me.

Is there another link I can use to get the "File Patch XML for Brawl".

These are the ones I used.
they work fine

Put them in the /riivolution on your SD card

Ok, I'm gonna make it reek of annoying nooby here, but can anyone help me with motionetc and effect .pac files? I'm wondering if you can have a motionetc. or effect .pac file apply to only a particular skin. Meaning you would be able to have multiple motionetc and effect .pac files for one character.

Is This Possible? If so, can anyone help me do it?

I have a 4.3 PAL wii. I can only use riivolution for hacks.
I can't get my .GCT to work (with infinite replay code, which is why I hack).
Does anyone know the solution?
I put everything in the correct directory


Title: Re: The Complete N00B's Guide to Brawl Hacking
Post by: Sventhesilent on July 29, 2011, 11:57:09 AM
So, I am wondering, do these hacks conflict at all with hacks like Brawl minus? Because I have done everything this guide said for hacking via SD card and Gecko and nothing seems to work. Trying to do texture stage hacks.


Title: Re: The Complete N00B's Guide to Brawl Hacking
Post by: Flameswy on July 29, 2011, 08:21:15 PM
a complete n00b question...

so, i followed the guide pretty easily ( i hope i didnt make mistakes) but at step three i hit a bump.

Characters belong in the following location:
(X):\private\wii\app\RSB(X)\pf\Fighter\(Character Name)\

i found the private folder, and followed the chain all the way up to RSB(X), which was RSBE for me...

and then there was no pf folder, just one named al.

._.

so i just made a new folder named pf, and one it named fighter, etc...

is this the right thing to do or did something go wrong in a previous step?

please help!


Title: Re: The Complete N00B's Guide to Brawl Hacking
Post by: Tempo_ on July 29, 2011, 10:57:41 PM
Yes. If the folder is not there, of course you have to make it.

You seemed to have set it up properly.


Title: Re: The Complete N00B's Guide to Brawl Hacking
Post by: Tane on July 30, 2011, 09:49:35 AM
Also another noob question: When I'm trying to save a replay (I have the infinite replay hack), after hitting Z after a match, it takes forever for the option to save to come up. When it finally does and I hit save, it takes forever for it to actually save it. Does anyone know why or how to fix it?


Title: Re: The Complete N00B's Guide to Brawl Hacking
Post by: Flameswy on July 30, 2011, 04:44:45 PM
hmm, alright thanks for replying tempo.

im still hitting snags though.

so, im launching the game through gecko OS via home brew channel, and i set the option to auto load SD card codes, but bowser still looks like bowser, not the groundon texture thingy i put under koopa in the fighter folder....

should i be using a different launcher or again did i make a mistake before?

thanks in advance for help....


never mind, i fixed every thing.

Post by: Killapockets on August 04, 2011, 09:40:56 AM
Is there a limit of stage Model Texture files for riivolution? Once I get to a certain number of stages in my melee folder any new ones added after aren't loaded.

For bannerbomb setup, where do I put the boot.dol or boot.elf for homebrew?

"16. Make sure that the .dol or .elf file for the Homebrew you want to run is named "boot.dol" or "boot.elf"."

Where should this be? We were supposed to erase it earilier.

Hey, I just hacked my Wii yesterday, installed the homebrew browser, gecko, and cheatmanager. I have set up all the folders like I was supposed to on my sd card (2GB). I downloaded the CloudStrife DissidiaV1 and tried to put it in the Ike folder that I had created. I renamed the pac and pcs files to "FitIke00".pac. I loaded the game through gecko, it says "sd card found applying", but when I choose Ike he is still Ike. There is no Cloud in any of the colors. I think I'm close, but something is wrong haha. Any help/advice would be really appreciated. Thanks in advance!

Thank you so much. Totally misread that part haha. I got it working. One last question, I see some people have like a picture of Cloud on the character selection screen. What are those called, and they would still go in the Ike folder right? (like the pac and pcs files).

could someone post an example of a file location address? because i have everything installed that i need to but i think either my file locations on my SD card are messed up or im missing something. here is the file location for the Zelda folder on my SD card. if needed/wanted i can post the addresses to the other ones [im only trying to do character mods right now]
here is what the root of my SD card looks like. i already have the homebrew channel, bootmii, and the program that lets you run back up disks from the disk channel [Dark something] installed.

normally the "+" dissappear after the error and I can't expand the tree.
Sometimes if i close and reload the same file, it expande without problems but this is rare.
Anyway sometimes i get to see the "bones" (or incomplete bones) but not the textures but mostly see nothing (yes, i zoom out).


-after making a simple texture hack (see pic below where i just added the 2 black snakes) and trying to save the file as brres, brawlbox is giving me another error:
(http://img818.imageshack.us/img818/7374/error2bq.th.png) (http://imageshack.us/photo/my-images/818/error2bq.png/)

I am on Win XP SP3 x32, and before somebody asks, yes i have .net 3.5 SP1 and graphic card OpenGL 1.3.1
but ok, I admit I am not using it for SSBB but for brres of Final Fantasy Fables Chocobos Dungeon and tried the new Zelda SS demo too. brres viewer can show them both without problems.
Some idea where the problem is??


Then I have a question, are there some tools around to view/edit or at least some specs of the Wii 2D graphics (like your demo pics of the strap for wiimote on start up??

Thanks alot

What is the code manager you choose in the Riivolution setup?  I went through them all and none worked and I need help getting codes.  :(  And what is the setup in Gecko to get the file patch code to work since I can't get any working on Riivo?

NOOB question here: How do I get the items in common3_en to work? it's in the right directory:
D:\private\wii\app\RSBE\pf\system (I use Riivolution) Do I need a certain file in munu2? Just something that I wanted to know recently today.
EDIT: SSBB freezes when I try to load my SD through Riivolution. I have my SSBB hacking files like this:
D:/private/app/pf/menu2/sc_selcharacter_en for that file, and D:/private/app/pf/menu2/sc_selcharacter2_en for that other one, and D:/private/app/pf/menu2/sc_selmap_en for my selmap file. And I have these in the system folder: common3_en, and common5_en
What am I doing wrong?
EDIT2: Items work, it's just the common5 and the cheatcode file's not working. (Meaning I can't get to the CSS or SSSscreens.) I'll try to get things working.
EDIT3: FAIL! I'll try to get Didy Kong to help me with this, hopefully that guy can help.

I'm having trouble with that too! Hopefully someone will come with a help area for stage hacking that clear enough for noobies.

You forgot the "Letter Bomb" method of getting the homebrew channel, which works for system menu ver. 4.3, if you want, I can tell you how it works if you want.

Hey, I know most experienced hackers hate explaining things, and I've self taught myself a ton of hacking in the past few days but now I'm at a real (http://i0.kym-cdn.com/photos/images/newsfeed/000/143/193/cad-20080602-358b1.jpg?1309710446).

Just got some new games and of course the friggin' Wii wants an update. I tried to use that preloader app but it always says "failed to locate root" when I try to install. This may have been answered before but I don't want to go through 24 forum pages looking for it.

I could really use some help here, I've done a lot of hacks to this wii so I'm too scared to put in the update in case it bricks and I just can't for the life of me figure out how to get past it. I'm using wii software 4.3

*EDIT: I should also mention that I have also tried priiloader, and while that did seem to install, nothing changed. I was under the impression that priiloader would activate as soon as I turned on my wii in place of a system menu, was I totally wrong about that?

To get a .pac file from a .pcs (or vice versa), all you need to do is open one of them in Brawlbox, and save it as the other type right? Or is there something else you need to do?

Okay, so I'm having an issue where my brawl crashes after my third match. I'm using Gecko codes and using the File Patch code. I thought it was my common5.pac, but its done the same thing without it.

What happens exactly is:
Third match ends, return to character select screen, and in about 6 or 7 seconds, the game crashes on me with the traditional obnoxious BEEEEP sound. It has done this consecutively the last four times I've run brawl.

I checked that all my *character*.pac files had no compression, and that all of my .pcs files are compressed in LZ77, but it's still doing this. Anyone know what might be causing this?

Try formatting your SD card. Remember to back up everything first as formatting deletes ALL data on the SD card. This is just one idea, and not guaranteed to work, but try it.

Tried it, didn't help. I narrowed it down to a problem with the fighter folder, so I assume that there's a corrupt texture in there somewhere...though it could be something else, I'm not sure.

I'm currently editing a Brawl Iso to use with my USB loader. It seems to be stable so far, but I'm having a bit of trouble with replacing some files. Anyone know of a guide on how to do this?

I have a n00b question. I made a ton of CSP's but I don't understand how to use them. I'm using Gecko. I downloaded common5_en.pac. I went to each of the textures I wanted to change, right click, replace, uploaded my image. Saved the common5_en.pac.

So where in my SD card do I place the common5_en.pac? Or am I supposed to do something different after I save my file? I really want to use my CSP's because I have a ton of characters in my Smash Bros game and I can't remember which texture is which character.

I put the common5_en.pac in pf/system  and the sc_selcharacter_en.pac file in pf/menu2 but the csps I made still aren't showing.

Please help me out, thank you.

So, I used to actively mess around with hacks and I always used Gecko OS to add hacks. It has been a few months since I played Brawl or used any hacks for it, so I decided to play it today... and what do I find? None of my hacks get loaded. I try again and the same thing... I have always used Gecko OS to use hacks, yet it doesn't seem to work. Riivolution seems to work just fine, but I don't like it... whenever I load up something that has been hacked, the light on my Wii blinks this obnoxious blue color... the same light that turns on whenever you have a new message. And Riivolution doesn't load the cheat codes, either. So I can't play and pause the game and spin the camera around the entire character. I have tried pretty much everything, and nothing seems to work right. I just want to be able to use Gecko OS to load my hacks, again. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

So, I'm starting from scratch. When I was moving my programs around...

thumbs. appeared and my computer asked if it was ok (to delete or move.)
 I confirmed yes, and my databank has since ceased to read on brawl.

I tried puting my backup on the card, but that did't work either. This was a while back, so I think I'll start from scratch.

Either my computer was disrespecting me (lol), or divine spirit fixed the next 10 links (and possibly all of them!)

Alright, so I deleted everything and started from scratch.
Everything went smoothly so far. My system is 4.3
On step A12 it mentions bootmii and DVDX. What are those? I installed bootmii as IOS(it gave me another option too.) It didn't even have DVDX.
On step A15 it mentions "Place the folder(s) for the Homebrew app(s) you want to run inside of that folder."
I don't have / know any apps for homebrew yet, right?

Homebrew Step 16 "Make sure that the .dol or .elf file for the Homebrew you want to run is named "boot.dol" or "boot.elf"."
I'm gonna assume that "boot.elf" for hackmii is NOT a homebrew app. I'm NOT gonna place it OR bootmini.elf inside the apps. I tried to read the README for boot.elf, and I was lost.

After further reading it does mention gecko and riivolution being homebrew apps.

Also, wasn't the smashstack mentioned in the homebrew guide?

Can anyone clarify, because I'm just gonna move forward, unless someone says otherwise.

install bootmii as an IOS, install homebrew, screw DVDX (i think lol)

.elf files are homebrew apps
apps go like this:

Wait a sec, are you telling me that letterbomb makes smashstack obsolete?
Should I bother trying to do letterbomb, since I already have and since the tutorial states that my 4.3 version would not work on it? Also, it seems the riivolution would be the better choice because it can modify Sound Effects, right? The HMN seems to have an entire channel - I wonder where to start.

Ok, so I tried it and it....WORKS!! Oh baby I'm happy!

In the riivolution menu(accessed via wii>homebrew) what is the ocarina handler>VI Hook/KPadhook/joypadhook/gxdRawhook/gxFlushHook/OSSleephook/AxNextFrameHook?

Someone asked this question on another forum:

Quote
I've been having a problem quite recently. My camera has been having spasms randomly during matches. One cause I've found is the Halberd stage's laser. I tried the battle with no items and no model imports (I even used original colors of Marth and Mario) and yet, the camera still had problems. My current codes (That would probably have any effect):

EDIT: My memory is getting better, and I thought I'd say that the camera bugs up on Norfair, Halberd, Zebes, and Spear Pillar.


Anyone have any ideas on how to help him?

This is a little bit of a sad thing because I just started homebrewing for the very first time.
What IS a .rel, and do you need to use them for custom characters/textures loaded to Brawlvault?
Because that's pretty much all I want to do so far.

Why is it sad, everybody starts where you are now at some point.

A .rel is a file used to port a character or stage over another. Such as the Scott Pilgrim psa (originally over Lucas) ported to both Jigglypuff, and Mr Game & Watch. You would need a ft_purin.rel for porting Scott to Jigglypuff, or a ft_gamewatch.rel for porting Scott to Game & Watch. In order to actually have Scott over either of these characters you need his psa .pac, and texture .pacs in the character you want him over folder (e.g. over Game & Watch, the pacs would go in the gamewatch folder.

Or as with stages, you'd use (for example) an st_final.rel for porting a stage over Final Destination.

The .rels go in the "private<Wii<App<RSBE(P)(J)<pf<Module" folder

RSBE - NSTC (US)
RSBP - PAL (Europe)
RSBJ - NTSC-J (Japan)

No you dont, if you download the Scott Pilgrim psa for Lucas, all you have to do is put the .pacs and such in his folder. Lucas is the character that Scott was made for, so there are no .rel files needed.

yup, launch gecko (and use file patch code) (http://www.mediafire.com/?xz4qmn4yylm)

or via riivolution (which you can install it AND beyond's XML in one click with my BFC)

This will be a great guide for me. But no offense, telling people to downgrade their Wii is the worst advice ever. Here's what WiiBrew says about downgrading:
"WiiBrew recommends that you run the latest version of the HackMii Installer and then optionally update your Wii to 4.3 using Nintendo's official updater.

Only update using the official update procedure. Downgrading or installing patched updates is unsupported, dangerous, and may permanently brick your Wii." Also, 4.2 and 4.3, as far as I've seen, don't affect brawl hacking at all. The only thing is that you must use the newest version of Riivolution because older versions were blocked.

they are the files in the folder. I've placed the RSBP.xml and RSBE.xml in the config folder.

Also will I have to change my directory and just make a folder called SSBB at the root of my sd card, then put fighter in there?

So it would look like K:\ssbb\fighter\ike Etc etc

After placing the xmls in the Config folder when selecting Ike my game just freezes..

Two questions. 

I tried to change the WarpStar to the Triforce.  One thing led to another and I finally figured out that I need to change it to a triangular shape instead of a star.  Any idea how to do that?

Also, I wanted to put a Pokémon over Mr. Saturn.  I expanded the ItmCommonBrres in the common3 file in BrawlBox, expanded ItmDoseisanBrres, and replaced ModelData0 and TextureData0 with files I took directly from a Pokémon PAC file.  By my uneducated logic, it should have worked.  Instead of working, the game froze at the Strap Menu.  I went back and restored the common3 backup that I had made right before switching Saturn out for a Pokémon and the game worked.  Any idea what I can do to make this work?

Not sure how often these are read..i need some help with some questions
1)As far as i could tell theres 2 main types of hacks skins and psa, from my reading it seems like u cant play online with psas and certain skins does that mean you cant play at all if someone on ur roster has those skins or u cant chose a char with a modded skin.
2)I have seen a few different mod setups which is the best I just want to be able to play with friends online.
3)Do the skins that dont disconect you show then?
4)It seemed like a PSA replaces a character because i saw things like naruto/scizor over X im assuming that means you can no longer play that character its over?
I think thats all for now thanks im brand new hopefully I can buy my sd card tomorrow to start trying it out

Edit/What size sd card X) thanks again

I've edited common3 before (just replacing brres files with other ones from Brawl Vault).  The issue I ran into was I tried to just wing it and see what happens.  I didn't expect it to lock up at the strap menu. 

I have a basic idea of how to fix my issue though.  I think I have to play with the bones.  Joy. 

What have you tried to edit?

PSAs are alternate movesets.  Textures just make the character look different.  Some PSAs just modify a character's attacks like making Samus's fire attacks do Ice damage instead.  Others completely change the character such as turning Toon Link into Skull Kid with a completely different moveset.  A texture is something like making Marth look exactly like Lyndis without changing his attacks.  The only difference is appearance. 

Just so you know, you can mix them.  If you put a PSA on Marth that changes a few of his moves (such as making them a bit stronger), then you could still put a Lyn texture over Marth. 

1. I don't use wifi, so I can't help you much there.  I do know that some mods say they are wifi tested and safe, so you can look for those.  The ones that don't say it are usually "maybes" as far as I know. 

2. I use Brawl Plus with Gecko and it runs nicely.  Again, I can't help much with wifi issues. 

3. Can't help you. 

4. As I said before, some PSAs just alter a few attacks, while others change the character completely.  If Toon Link is changed to Skull Kid, then that means Toon Link was completely replaced with Skull Kid.  As long as Skull Kid is in the game, it's impossible to play as Toon Link. 

There is one exception to that rule.  rel files.  Mewtwo is a good example. 

Mewtwo is designed to go over Lucario.  But some people liked Lucario, so they decided to put Mewtwo with his new moveset over Ness.  This can only work if they also make something called a rel file.  Without that file, the game locks up as soon as it tries to spawn Mewtwo in a match.  I don't know enough people here to recommend anyone, but if you really want to replace a character with a character other than the default (Mewtwo over Ness instead of Lucario), you'd need to get someone to make a rel file for it.  Just a fun fact. 

I believe the best size is 2GB.  I've heard that more than that can crash the game.

I guess I got a question. I already have homebrew on my wii and I've done texture hacks in the past, but now no matter what I can't get them to work. The brawl unlimited pause camera code for gecko works but I can't get any textures or anything else to work.

My wii has been updated to 4.3 [My mom did it when I was at college] but like I said homebrew is on there and works with gecko. I know I got files named right and in the right places. I even downloaded other people's packs of things to double check and even they don't work. I used your updated code as you put it in your tutorial and still nothing. Only thing that 'works' other than the camera is that random doesn't load any stages.

Can anyone help me figure out what's up and what I can do? Nothing freezes, everything still plays just nothing shows up. I've had no crashes or anything the only problems with random stages.

Also I'm using a US disc just in case that's something that needs to be known.

I downloaded V1.0 from here the Cloud: [url]http://www.mediafire.com/?b2hokjs91lpku15[/url] ([url]http://www.mediafire.com/?b2hokjs91lpku15[/url])
after I downloaded the file open and I went to see the instructions
who said this:
If you want to use the version That Spawns a mango instead of a pineapple, simply delete (or move to somewhere else)
FitIke.pac and rename FitIkeMANGO.pac to FitIke.pac
I do not understand anything I ... would you be kind enough to explain?

its saying "if you want..." this means if you want that other version, set it up so the game picks up on that alternate hack watcher than the main one

want the mango?: delete fitike.pac from your SD card and drop in the MANGO one in there , but (so the game does NOT ignore it),  rename it to fitike.pac

Would I be able to do this with Neogamma, if I load the ISO from the SD and use the USB for the cheats?

ni, you can only load mods through the USB if you are using riivolution, otherwise, the mods HAVE to be on an SD card

if you use riivo, you will NOT be allowed to use pirated copies with it

So, how would I go about using mods from the SD since I do not have a usable copy of the game anymore? I looked through the tutorials, and tried things, but still have failed.

Get yourself an external hard drive, download the game from the internet, and use the usbloader (to boot the game) you can use the built in Ocarina to use the file patch code which will load the mods off your SD card like normal. Dont ask where to download the game though, search for it.

[Edit]Looking at your post again, you seem to already have the ISO, in that case just get an external hard drive, get the usbloader program and install it to your wii, and load the mods off your SD card through the built in Ocarina (part of the usbloader)

if you use neogamma or USB loader,  you have to use the file patch code and can ONLY load the mods from the SD card, what I thought you were saying was to have your SD setup on a USB stick instead, which the file patch code does not pick up from (only riivolution does), in USB loader, click brawl>settings>game load>ocarina>on>[start game]

Alright, I tried everything with file patch code and all with the Shadow Final Version, but when I go to Character Select, Sonic is still normal, and when I pick Sonic, the game freezes on Stage Select. Also, the install thing for the Shadow Final thing does not work properly.

the images on the character select do NOT use the models contained in the hack, thats a separete picture to hack on your own, its the in-match results that count

also it appears to have worked and is being recognized by the game because its freezing when loading him, normal brawl doesnt freeze when loading sonic

maybe your download was corrupted? try downloading again, then in
(SD CARD)> private>wii>app>RSBE>pf>fighter>sonic>
extract all the PCS and PAC files you find to there

also is your brawl version, japanese, european, or american? this and the wrong FPC can be the reason...

you are using gecko/file patch code, voice hacks WILL NOT work

also HEX is NOT a file encoding that brawl reads, its a section of one of it's files (smashbros_sound.BRSAR) you have to use hex edit and cram that in in a very specific place for it to work, do it wrong, and you destroy the entire file

you need riivolution to load voice hacks, try that and you might have an additional code that might be causing the freeze

Hey guys, I am completely brand new too this. As Im trying too put in the hacks, it keeps freezing my game as I choose the stage! :(

This is what i have done so far:

I have installed the File Patch code

I am using gecko and the newest updated wii 4.3u

I believe this is where the problem lies (sadly)

Say I am working on a lucario, I downloaded the project m version from this site and this is how I input it.

G:>private>wii>app>rsbe>pf>fighter>lucario>FitLucario00.pac

I just want too add within my lucario folder there is file called FitLucarioMotionEtc.Pac

BronzeGreekGod made this lucario and it comes with 2 files. http://www.mediafire.com/?en6qzyti2qx9vqo (http://www.mediafire.com/?en6qzyti2qx9vqo)

Any ideas guys? :(

if you're using Brawl mods they go in their respective brawl folder check the spoiler

X:/brawlmods/bbrawl/ - Balanced Brawl. RSBE01.gct goes in this folder, as well as all of the other "pf" files.

X:/brawlmods/brawlminus/ - Brawl Minus. RSBE01.gct goes in this folder, as well as all of the other "pf" files.

X:/brawlmods/brawlplus/ - Brawl Plus. RSBE01.gct goes in this folder, as well as all of the other "pf" files.

X:/brawlmods/custom1/ - Custom Set #1. RSBE01.gct goes in the root of this folder. Contains "fighter",
"info", "info2", "menu", "menu2", "module", "stage" and "system" folders as well.

X:/brawlmods/custom2/ - Custom Set #2. RSBE01.gct goes in the root of this folder. Contains "fighter",
"info", "info2", "menu", "menu2", "module", "stage" and "system" folders as well.

X:/brawlmods/projectm/ - Project: M. RSBE01.gct goes in this folder, as well as all of the other "pf" files.

X:/brawlmods/vbrawl/ - Regular Brawl. RSBE01.gct goes in the root of this folder. Contains "fighter",
"info", "info2", "menu", "menu2", "module", "stage" and "system" folders as well.

and like Diddy mentioned it goes in system (Beyond you's) , If you're using the standard  riivolution xml then "ssbb" folder and then "system" folder  hope this helped o:

this is a gouged disc/dying disc drive issue,  if you rub the disc on your cheek and it feels rough, buy this (http://www.amazon.com/SkipDr-DVD-Repair-Cleaning-System/dp/B0041A3JR6/ref=sr_1_4?ie=UTF8&qid=1345526219&sr=8-4&keywords=dvd+dr), run it 2 times through, then try again
if thats NOT the case, then it may be the SD card being weird, or your DVD slot is dying

First off, this is my file location:

now i edited it with BrawlBox, the video told me, grant that i like the image. I replaced the image, factory_background, with the same thing. Then i compressed it and it saved.  btw. i have file code replacement code and common5.pac.

So when i open up brawl with Gecko, it loads and the menu is able to work, BUT! my CSP, CSS, and all that stuff doesn't. But if i use Riivolution, My menu background dissappears and i can't get the CSPs to work. (not concerned about the CSS). what the heck am i doing wrong!

GET FREAKING STAGE MODELS TO WORK.
Sure, textures and models under ~400KB fine, but anything large gives me the dreaded beep of failure, or just doesn't load at all. I'm using Gecko OS with a custom codeset from Project Fast Fall, with custom CSS, PSAs, CSPs, the whole kazoo... EXCEPT FOR F*IN' STAGE MODELS. I've tried Melee FD, KCMM Stadium, Hyrule 64.. All BEEEEP. I need some help.

riivolution is not a gecko loader replacement, you need another file that takes the place of the usual file patch code you are used to seeing, known as an XML

K:\private\wii\app\RSBE\pf\fighter
I know the region matches the game.
It says codes found, all codes work besides the file patch. I've tried one already in a gct, and I tried to add it manually as well and its not working.
Any ideas?

did you add any hacks? are they named right? ( a mario hack with a file named "awesome mario hack (crack edition).pcs" for example,  is not a valid setup )

if ypu are only using pac files, you will ONLY see them when your online opponents pick them

yup about the SDs

if using gecko, you are limited to 2GB (because thats the max brawl supports)
if you use riivolution however,
you can use up to 32 GB SD

freezing on a fitblahblahexex.pcs indicates the hack itself is bad - contact the creator of suspected file

not advisable,  you CANNOT test a hack without running it in the game
because everything will look fine...
until the game tries to use it and freezes because something small was wrong with it...

I assume you pirated brawl and are trying to burn it or are stuck on the oldfut method of modding brawl.... in that case, please buy the game and THEN try testing them on your wii

Well... hello. I'm one more guy seeking for help on how to make the texture hacks work. You see, I already have the Homebrew Channel and tried to install some new textures for SSBB characters, but nothing seems to work for me. Yes, I have already read not only this guide, but many other ones out there. I have even watched a couple of tutorials at Youtube, but I get no results.
I have a NTSC-U Wii and Panasonic SDHC 4GB card. I insterted the latest Gecko OS version in an "apps" folder, made a "codes" folder where I put the "RSBE01.gct" file, made the needed directories "/private/wii/app/RSBE/pf/fighter/(characters". I made a folder for each and every character, downloaded some texture packs for many of them here, at Brawl Vault. I proceeded to extract the respective .pcs files into the corresponding folders, renamed them to the "Fit(character)01.pcs/Fit(character)02.pcs, etc" formula. I put my SD into my Wii, ran the Homebrew Channel, ran Gecko1931, then the SSBB game disc and everything... I even got the message saying "SD Codes found. Applying...", but when I select the characters for which at least a new texture was supposedly added, nothing happens. The fight starts normally, as if nothing was done. Even trying to change the character's costume is useless. The same happens with the stages: downloaded some new textures for a couple of stages, renamed them as the guide said, but nothing...
I honestly don't know what to do anymore, I have been trying to make these work since almost a week ago, with no results. What might I have done wrong?
Thanks in advance!

For Gecko you need to use a 2 GB sd card.  It will not work with 4 GB or higher.  Other than that it looks like you did it right.

So going online and doing wi-fi battles, etc. would be fine, then?

If the people you fight have the same hacks, then yes.  If you are only using texture hacks, then yes.  Otherwise, it causes desync.

For some reason my game starts on gecko, but I can see nothing, just black screen.
Riivolution can't start it at all.
I followed the guide step-by-step.

E0000000 80008000

Well, I know im supposed to change the X es but I don't understand to what. If I want there to be zero frames of buffer, what am I supposed to change them to? Please help.

This is a PAL code for buffer modifying. You'll need it to efficiently use the melee airdodge hack.
If you don't reduce the frames on buffer you'll shield, spotdodge or crouch after you've hit the ground making for bad wavedashing...

Hey, I can't get my textures and CSS to work. I'm using GeckoOS for my Wii, and it's NTSC. I have the Yoko Littner texture for Zero Suit Samus and both the .pac and the .pcs files are in \private\wii\app\RSBE\pf\fighter\szerosuit. The CSS that I have isASF1nk's Dark Flaming Blue CSS and SSS. The files are both in private\wii\app\RSBE\pf\menu2. Is there anything I'm doing wrong?

STGcrayon is the only file in charge of that stage, theres a track in there that uses TWO brstms, one being for winter season, and the other for the rest of the seasons

in winter transition, the game ends brstm1 and loads up brstm 2, when winter ends, it ends brstm 2 and loads up brstm 1 i think the brstm calls are timed by the rel :/
you can use my brstm copier to find out what that other slot is or look up the song IDs and make a copy of the song over that other slot as well, though note, your song will restart when the winter part of the stage hits

I have a question...
Can I use 2 "hitbox.pac" and 2 "MotionEtc.pac" in the same character?
Example: I alredy have a file named FitToonLink.pac, FitToonLinkMotionEtc.pac wich have the mods of the OP(Over Powered) moves like, the ice boomerang, and the toon texture etc.
And I want to put the Skull Kid Final Smash... But the file comes with
FitToonLinkFinal.pac, FitToonLinkMotionEtc.pac, FitToonLink.pac
So I can put the Final.pac with no trouble because i have no more files like it... but when i want to add the motionetc.pac and the fittoonlink.pac... The computer say: they already a file named "fitToonLink.pac" do you want to replace it? and i do not want to... I want to use both files...
It is possible?

no - the game shares ONE for all costumes
if you want to... try modding the game's main code to work the PSA on a costume-per-costume basis which nobody has dug yet


Title: Re: The Complete N00B's Guide to Brawl Hacking
Post by: Dark SharinganX on May 08, 2013, 01:34:49 PM
Oooh... Thank you, that solved one part of the question...
But I may been confuse...
What I'm trying to do, is that i can use the final smash of skull kid and the ice boomerang with all costumes... but both files are named like "FitToonLink.pac"
so i don't want to do it costume per costume...
i want to use both FitToonLink.pacs with all the costumes....
So i can use the ice boomerang and the skull kid final smash with any toon link.

Post Merge: May 08, 2013, 01:46:26 PM
Example: My folders
private/wii/app/RSBE/pf/fighter/ToonLink
FitToonLink.pac (ice boomerang works with every costume) FitToonLink00.pcs (Wind Waker Texture) bla bla

but i want to put, another "FitToonLink.pac"(Skull Kid Final Smash)
and I want it to work with every costume too, but my computer say me; the file already exist, try another name, or you want to replace it?
There is a way ... to use both FitToonLink.pacs??

You'd have to switch off the PSA's whenever you want to use one or the other. Just rename them.

Okay... Thanks...
So, it is not possible to use both mods at the same time?

Because, if I rename the file it is not going to work...
Well, or that's what I think.

I followed this forum exactly how it said to do it, and nothing's happening. I did get the Homebrew Channel, Gecko OS, and Riivolution to work, but the hacks that I've downloaded aren't working. (I've downloaded multiple, from multiple people, so it's not just one hack, or one person.)

I'm using 2 different SD cards: a 256 mb and a 512 mb. (I was informed that these sizes were fine for hacking.) My Wii System Menu is v. 4.3, but I assumed that that wasn't a problem. (If you need anymore info, just message me.)

Please, can anybody help?! I've been trying to get this to work for over a year, and everything I've tried has failed. I'm kinda starting to freak out here!

I've never been too good with the codes and this forum, in my opinion, didn't really do a good job in explaining how to use them. Could you explain too me what exactly the File Patch Code is, and how I'm supposed to use it?

On another note, I tried what the website said. Here are the results:
              The 256 mb sd card: Froze my Wii whenever I tried Training Mode or a normal group Brawl. (I didn't try anything else.) I tried everything: Gecko OS; Riivolution; I changed the settings within both over and over again. With Gecko OS it did say that it found SD Codes, and applied them.
              The 512 mb sd card: Did nothing in Gecko OS (It said that it couldn't find any SD Codes, which doesn't make any sense because both sd cards are exactly the same. (Except for one empty folder on the root that I don't remember putting on there)). With Riivolution, the screen went black when I pressed Launch, and the Wii mote shut off.

I'm lost now. I don't know what else to do.

No, there is nothing that you can do for that.  The only way to have that would to .rel port the character over someone else.

Whenever I click on the link, I am sent to a page, with nothing. Is there anywhere else I can get the original brawl files? Please help.
you ddo not need to fill your sd cards with fresh unmodded brawl files, anything NOT on your SD card loads normally

If they are just textures, then no.
if they both add new moves to sonic then that's a defendant yes.

take the patch code of XML from each one (including codehandlers)
and give wach one its own patch ID , use the same patch ID on the options section name them brawl pluz, brawl less, pee emm, plain hax and relate them to the patch id you gave each configuration, each configuration should use DIFFERENT directories for EACH folder external and file externals and not the same one, because  you dont want to have PM's PSAs loading with brawl plus or such

you can put like

IN THE XML AND LAYOUT ON SD


SD:\PM\pf\the PM crap here
SD:\PLUZ\ the B+ crap here
SD:\lezz\minus crap here
SD:\trololo\plain mods here

SD:\pmcodez\RSBE01.gct
SD:\pluss\RSBE01.GCT
SD:\minus\RSBE01.gct
SD:\LOLOLOL\RSBE01.gct


memory valuefile= (use the above directories for the GCT of each mod pack as part of the patches for each pack)

I wanted to get Mewtwo2ooo version of SM64 Peach's Castle stages:

mediafire.com/?duoxayuua7we8

I tried to do what a lot doing on importing files;

on 120LEDGE files, I did it, the icons and font from tutorial How to hack/mod Super Smash Bros Brawl Stages (& icons) (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LUqK11bJbXE#) are really good with others, but not stages.  when I start to fight as Wario and G&W, the entire screen is black except Wario, G&W, and the battle and time system (I even recorded this!).

And on the SM64 Background, I did it the same thing, except this time, the background is there, but no platforms is visible.

How do I do this stages implant right.

This is the address of your character brawl hacks on the device that you're using. For me it's an SD Card. The first "X" is the name of your drive when you plug it into your computer (or other device). The second "X" is the other letter that's added to "RSB_" depending on your location. I'm in the U.S. so mine is "RSBE" (I don't remember what the others are).

No, 00 is original, 01 is red, 02 is green, and 03 is blue. It's like that for most characters except some characters colors are already the original ie Mario doesn't have 01 because his original is the red team. But I see you get the idea so yes you do that.

Do you mean the recolors? Using Mario as an example, his original color (red Mario) would be named FitMario00.pac. Same with FitMario02.pac, Fit Mario03.pac, etc. The full list of character colors and their order is located on the first page of this forum under "3.

Textures are often just recolors of a character

Model imports are an entire different character model over a character's bones.

Textures just have to be mapped to the current model, while imports have to be rigged using the characters original bones.

You don't need to rig them, the hacks are already done for you. All you have to do is download the hack and place them in the folder.

For the textures, you have to open the files up with BrawlBox and replace textures with your own.

Just a heads up but if it comes with a FitMotionEtc. pac or a FitCharacter.pac (w/o any numbers) it would be wise to be put those in as well as they are often intended for the mod to look its best. Most hacks don't come with these, but these change a character drastically (some even change a character's moveset) and they aren't one-slot meaning they will affect all hacks associated with the aforementioned character.

You're using Gecko, right? You have to specify your launcher because different launchers use different properties to get the hacks into Brawl. Riivolution for example uses .xml files that account for a specific file configuration.

(Forgive me in advance for any stupidity in this question)

Hello, I'd just like to ask a question. I apologize if this has been answered before on this thread, but i personally don't feel like reading 40 pages of responses without even guaranteeing that my question has been asked. Now, I don't know if this was because of something I had done previously, but I can't remember if I have ever done something to cause this. Basically, I have a private folder, and a wii folder inside of that on my SD. but all I have after that is a folder called "TITLE" containing what I believe to be wiiware games (no RSBE though), and two files called "LOC.BAK" and another one called "LOC.DAT" I have everything else necessary in order to put them in the game, but I can't find those folders. Any help is greatly appreciated.

-Camptain0

EDIT: I should also mention that this is NOT the SD card I installed the homebrew channel with, if that makes a difference. Plus, it is SDHC which i have a feeling might be the problem.

Let me help you with that...
If you are saying that the only content of your sd is wiiware games and can't find the brawl data, save a backup of that sd card data to your computer, format the sd and then pass the brawl mod data to the sd.

About the note you mentioned...
The sd doesn't need to be the same one you installed homebrew with.
SDHC may be fine, however... make sure your sd is 2 gigs. (unless you are using riivolution, witch is out of my area)

My SD card is 8 gigs, maybe that's the problem? I might have a 2gb non-sdhc card somewhere, so I might try that. Also what exactly do you mean by, "Pass the brawl mod data"? Sorry for being newbish xD

If you are using gecko, the sd card limit is 2 gigs, more than that will not work.
As for the second question, the brawl mod data is simply all the files you need for your modded brawl to work. For example, in the root of your sd card you have 2-3 folders, two of them are labeled codes and private... the last one contains rsbe with all the music, stages, characters,etc

Alright, but my original problem was that I couldn't FIND the brawl mod data. There was no app folder. I have read from other sources to just take a screenshot with it and it should appear, but from what I saw I can't take snapshots with an SDHC card.

So you are saying that your brawl mod data that you moved to the sd before just... disappeared? I've never faced that before....

Also, If you are taking screen shots, brawl can't read any sd card higher than 2gigs (it doesn't have the capacity), so there's that.

Sorry if I wasn't much help :/

You were a huge help! You may not have completely solved my problem, but I still learned a lot, and understand it a bit more. I could probably fix it on my own, or just find a 2gb non-SDHC SD card.

EDIT: I found a regular 1 GB SD card to use, so im going to try that. I'll let you know how that goes.

EDIT 2: Sooooo.... I set up the files for the Shadow, Wisp, and Silver PSA's using the Riivolution method. I was able to launch the game, but immediately the "make sure you have your wii strap on" appears very faded, and I assume the game crashed because I have to force shut off the wii by holding it for the 10 seconds. Here is what it looks like (approx. 5 secs after I click "launch" on riivolution): http://imgur.com/J8pIV3F,al6eSHW,ojFoTlK,wg7HO2p#2 (http://imgur.com/J8pIV3F,al6eSHW,ojFoTlK,wg7HO2p#2)

Now, I think this is due to my utter stupidity in understanding tutorials (or something along those lines). Here are the files I put in their respective folders. Tell me if I'm missing something, need to add something, or if im completely missing the point.

Wisp (Jigglypuff): http://imgur.com/J8pIV3F,al6eSHW,ojFoTlK,wg7HO2p#1 (http://imgur.com/J8pIV3F,al6eSHW,ojFoTlK,wg7HO2p#1)

Silver (Diddy Kong): http://imgur.com/J8pIV3F,al6eSHW,ojFoTlK,wg7HO2p#0 (http://imgur.com/J8pIV3F,al6eSHW,ojFoTlK,wg7HO2p#0)

Here is what was contained in the files I downloaded.

Wisp: Same as in the wisp image previous.

Silver: Same as in the silver image previous.

Shadow: (The lines show where that file leads)
               Root of downloaded file: http://imgur.com/W0jhiNN,c84YlrN#1 (http://imgur.com/W0jhiNN,c84YlrN#1)

I wanted to ask, I apologize if it's been covered in this topic already, but I have an unhacked Wii without Project M.  I was told on the Smashboards that I don't have to hack my Wii if I want to add in other hacked content.  But I was told on here (I made a topic about it), that the hacked in characters (such as Ridley and Shadow) may not work because the characters in Project M have already been so heavily edited.  I was able to get in different models (or costumes/colors) for a couple characters though.  Can it definitely not be done on an unhacked Wii with Project M?

hacking your wii doesnt add anything to using mods without homebrew
heres what hacking is needed for:
USB loader and pirating
system memory backup
using emulators on the wii


hacking is NOT needed for:
Project M
Custom Tracks World WIde/Custom Tracks GP
gecko cheating in games
Gecko-based brawl modding
Riivolution-based BRawl modding
Riivolution-based any game modding
Mii installer
Mii extractor

installing riivolution counts as hacking the wii but doesnt modify it

heres what your limitations are if you dont hack the wii:
for game mods, you will NOT be able to use a USB flash drive or an SD card bigger than 2GB to load mods or project M off of (installing riivolution)

yes, however, you DO know, project M is a PACK, NOT a loader to get you started with using all these random things on the vault... right? we mod the game the same way... but minus all these heavy codes to make brawl play like melee, you can modify project M to death if you want to, ONLY if you intend to play offline ONLY

Oh yeah I know that.  It's more of I just don't know how.  I got a couple skins/textures for the characters in there fine.  But my thing is trying to get fully made characters by hackers (Shadow, Ridley, etc.), music, and possibly stages in Project M.  That's my concern.  And I just don't wanna mess anything up.

project M inclludes a code that already loads mods, and just replacing the files for say mario  (pf->fighter->mario->fitmario0.pcs) and it will load

when you make a gct with brawlbox's code manager just paste the code into the thing
(if you still are afraid, til i impliment noob mod einto brstm copier or ask someone in the kcmm chat to help you make that gct that will load mods)
because project M is NOT compatable with custom content only custom content you can use in project M without breaking the game is:
music
textures of characters already in project M (no vertex edits)
text hacks
voice hacks

you CANNOT use the following custom content in project M:
stage hacks (PAC AND REL)
movesets
models
animation
THP

I placed them in the projectm folder on my sd card which is probably what you're not supposed to do. Can I use custom skins on Project M and if so where should I put the files? Should a make a new pf folder?

Some of them you can not sure how to tell.

They go in projectm/pf/fighter/"charater folder name"/Fit"character"XX
So for Link:projectm/pf/fighter/link/fitlinkXX

XX means costume id. 00,01,02 etc some characters have more than others like how wario has 12 and other have 6.

I managed to get everything to load right and characters work however their slots on the character select screen show up as Mario rather their given cloned character. Other than that it has worked just fine. I am also playing on my Wii by the way. I can post a video/screen shot if needed, just wondering if anyone knows what might be causing this.

Thanks. I'll check it out. And fyi, axnextframe didn't work.

The CSP's aren't the only things not working though. Most stages and a lot of the characters will make my Wii freeze (Strap Loaders and BRSTM's work just fine, though...). I only get characters that have little to no freeze reports so I don't know what it could be. I thought maybe it could be that I'm using v4.3, but this forum said that that would only effect other Homebrew Applications. ... Does that mean that it would effect Gecko OS and Riivolution? Should I downgrade?

you are failing to compress your texture import at import and you flood the wii's RAM and thats when it freezes, with CSPs, you have like around just under 2MB to be safe withand by failing to index them first and lazily plop stuff in, your one import floods over 2MB and makes the game use more RAM than the wii has, this is when it freezes



Answer: please save your images as indexed color PNG or use CMPR format (this is that RGB dropdown in brawlbox when you click replace, then open a file)

when you say "index" do you mean the format? As in c18 or rgb5a3 or i8? I always save them in c18 format since that's what the original was formatted to. Is that ok? And how would I compress the file? Do you mean the common5.pac file? If so, it says that brawlbox auto compresses it every time I save.

@Jade_Rock
Could you send me a link to the forum you're talking about? I looked and found a lot of them, so I don't know which one to choose.

no,  format CMPR is the like CL btw, CMPR is SMALLER than CL8by 80%ish

compress, your PNG file can be up to 80% smaller

the following belie is what i mean (ONE ONE OR THE OTHER ONLY)

OR, NOT AND

(smaller = BETTER) notice how the CL8 is 21 KB, but the CMPR one is only 10 KB?

Oh! Ok! I think I get it now. So correct me if I'm wrong: I can either put the CSP in Photoshop and set it to Index Color Mode or when putting it into the common5.pac file, I set the format to CMPR? Is that right?

Alright. So doing this should:
a) stop the freezing permanently (unless it's a hack that I have that's freezing the game)?
b) allow the CSP's to actually show up?

Ok. So I tested it and here are my results:

a) No CSP's showed up. At all.

b) Characters kept freezing. Almost never in the same spot. (Usually right before or right as I choose the stage.)

(I tested the characters on a non-hacked stage, just to be safe.) All the CSP's that I put in were formatted to CMPR.

After almost 2 years of doing this and seeing very little results, it's getting very depressing. Yet, I won't quit. :\ Idk Help?

So with normal Brawl not having enough positive results, I decided to finally switch over to Project: M. Finally, everything works and nothing has crashed so far. But being new to P:M, I obviously have a few questions:

1. Is there a reason why Squirtle, Ivysuar, and Charizard lack a Final Smash? Has it just not been coded yet or what?

2. Is there a way to add a new character? Like, say I wanted to get Shadow into P:M, but I still wanted to keep all the original characters. Is there a way that I can have him without porting him over someone else?

3. Like #2, is there a way to add new stages? (Personal opinion: I was greatly disappointed by the small number of stages that were put in.)

Those are all the questions that I can think of for now, but I have no doubt that I'll be back sometime with more. Any help with the current ones though, would be greatly appreciated.

did you know nintendo didnt plan on us modding their game,

the game nor the code will generate stuff for you that you can make yourself by clicking "new folder" and typing "pf"
additionally, the games not going to dump itself to your sd card to edit, you need to get these yourself or download them and  place them on your SD card as if an ordinary document

There is no direct download link. To "acquire" the fighter folder, you click on "New Folder" on your computer. You then make the folder with the appropriate character's "game name" (which are stated on the first page of this forum), and place the file(s) associated with that character in it. The hacks are located right here on the Brawl Vault.

on top of this website is a resources button, and go there and on the bottom is this link: https://drive.google.com/folderview?id=0B4vhNdf69qaSZ0N0MnBjOXFYMU0# (https://drive.google.com/folderview?id=0B4vhNdf69qaSZ0N0MnBjOXFYMU0#)

the original files are only needed if you are CREATING mods

the folder itself is nothing special its just a folder and has no unique things about it that makes it any different from making a folder labeled "fighter" in the "pf" folder


the reason why all tutorials assume you have it is because there's no need to aquire a directory (path) from a disc or download

  Hello, I am having an issue when I try and load a custom character texture on Super Smash Bros Brawl, via both Gecko OS and Riivolution. I have a softmodded Wii, I even have the textures named correctly over which character skin I want it to cover over, I also have the custom textures in the path: private/wii/app/RSBE/pf/fighter/(Name Of Character). Yet, when I load it up, it freezes when I attempt to choose a character or select a stage. I did not try a custom stage yet and sometimes it only loads the original skins for some reason.

  For example, I downloaded a character texture on BrawlVault, which was Karas Knight(Meta Knight Texture), then put it the the path mentioned above, I even renamed it. I also did not modify the skin either. Could the game be freezing because the texture is broken or maybe these textures are patched? I tried making a .gct code file via Code Manager using the file replacement code and put it in the "codes" folder on the root of the SD card. In addition, my SD card does not exceed the 2GB memory limit.

  So the question is, why is this happening? Is my file corrupted, is it patched by Nintendo, or perhaps the texture itself is broken  in general? There could be many possibilities... All I know is that I followed multiple tutorials stating what to do in which I followed every single step. Could someone please assist me in this issue? Many thanks! :)

   Additional Information:

- Wii Menu Version: 4.3U (United States)
- Wii Console State: Softmodded
- Wii Console Softmodded via LetterBomb

  Issues Encountered:

- Wii freezes when selecting a stage or character by loading a custom texture from Gecko OS or Riivolution
- When Wii console freezes it will not allow me to turn the power off unless I unplug the cord. Therefor rendering me to attempt the process all over again.

  File Information:

- The Karas Knight texture is a .pcs file.

Open your texture in brawlbox, save it as a .pair file, and you're done.

I've just recently switched to Project: M (because it works) and everything was going perfectly fine until a couple days ago when I was downloading hacks and downloaded the Shadow over Mr. Game & Watch hack. It was the only one that required me to use a code (something in which I have found I suck at writing...) and a .rel file. I did what I could with the code and placed the provided .rel file in the module folder. Then when I went to test it, it froze! Right at the strap loading screen!

So thinking that it had to have been the Shadow over G&M hack, I immediately went back to my computer and took off the the .pac/.pcs, .rel files, and the code. Guess what? It still didn't work! Same exact spot.

This is the only time when I have had Project: M not work. (Besides it freezing because of other characters, but I took care of those.) If anybody could enlighten me as to why it's not working, I would be most appreciative.

I dunno.

Though it should work, because I recall adding some PSAs made by Amarythe and Kitsu, I deleted all their songs to add mine, and I even added some other SFX so... yea...

I think it might be items, since some hacks that are made for P:M or work for it, come with SFX. Plus, adding in your own music is about the easiest thing to do in Brawl hacking, I don't think that it should be a problem in Project: M.

Oh well. I'm going to go try my theory. Thanks for all your help! (I might be back...)

Ok, so SFX and custom music works fine! I haven't tested items yet. I'll probably do that tomorrow.

Question: Besides using Sawndz (which is currently giving me problems), is there a way to change the victory themes and/or announcer calls? Could it be as simple as dropping in the corresponding .brsar file into the "sounds" folder and renaming it accordingly? Like if I wanted to replace Snake's victory theme, I would put in the .brsar file and name it Z46?

I know that, but just replacing the arc files and brfnt files in system/font doesn't actually change the files unless you can find them in the pac files also. I'm trying to replace the brfnt and arc files with the Korean brfnt and arc files because I'm trying to make a Korean version of PM. Because I'm messing with the .msbin files, I need the font files to be in Korean so they can actually read the Korean on the .msbin files.

you take the stage builder method of installing homebrew, but INSTEAD of having the homebrew installer as the thing to load, we put either gecko, projectM".exe", or riivolution, these are ALL hackless wii loadable homebrew applications

what dictates the app that hackless wii loads?

the app's BOOT.ELF being at the root of your SD card

DESPITE what looks like the same exact file, they are actually different, just LABELD the same because the stage builder thing will be looking for a file in a specific place with that specific name and load the code it happens to contain

you MUST DELETE all your stage buiilder stages through the stage builder  including the SD ones, then exit out and go back to stage builder

if your sibling  doesnt allow you homebrew  then you're screwed and cant play projectM,  you CANNOT use riivo with PM, because they are cheat code happy for everything which bugs me personally that they use codes first, then files if the code cant mod what they need

So if I understand this correctly, to use P:M with a SD card larger than 2 gigs, I need to reinstall Homebrew and run it through what? Gecko OS?

through their app
That's the one that comes with the other two versions, right?

So when I put one of the other versions on the SD card, I would go to the Homebrew Channel and then run P:M through the app that comes with it?

Project: M (in one way or another) is essentially part of, or uses, the Twilight Hack correct? According to http://www.wiibrew.org/wiki/SD/SDHC_Card_Compatibility_Tests (http://www.wiibrew.org/wiki/SD/SDHC_Card_Compatibility_Tests) a SD card thats 4gb or higher (SDHC) does not work with the Twilight Hack.

If that's true, then how am I supposed to use an SD card that's larger than 2gb with P:M?

Currently, I'm using a Transcend 8gb SDHC Class 10 card because my other 2 Transcend 2gb SD cards weren't enough. (I also have both 512mb and 256mb cards, but that's irrelevant right now.) All I did was copy the exact files from one 2gb card to the 8gb card. The 2gb cards worked fine, but as I said, didn't have enough memory. When I use my 8gb, it loads HBC and shows that I have P:M on the card and even loads the P:M menu. But when I press "PLAY", it just goes back to the Wii menu (also if I don't do anything for a while on the P:M menu, everything freezes except the background music).

Can someone please help me out with this? I just spent almost $10 on this card so it's brand new and I don't want to have it be a waste of money.

simple, its not the hackless set that works with larger SD cards

you need to already have used the twilight hack to install either homebrew or the projectM launcher (BOTH of which support cards bigger than 2 GB)

the gateway to starting hackless or installing them to your wii menu hackless does *NOT* support larger than 2 GB

additionally if its something like riivo, you can have a clone of the app  part of the two sd cards, and the bigger one have the mod pack installed on it, and just as the app booots, switch the two sd cards before the app gets a chance to read it

Per your previous suggestion of using the P:M app, that's what I'm using now. I would like to keep everything on one card, if possible.

My 8gb is formatted to FAT32 which I have not used before with Brawl hacking; I've always used the FAT format and I've never had a problem with it. (Note that my 8gb will not allow me to format it to FAT, nor have I found a way for the Wii itself to format my card as a digital camera can.) I don't know if this is the problem, but other than the size of the card, the format, and the class, there's nothing different between my 8gb and my 2gb. Any suggestions?

fat32 has a higher copacity per file and size limit, FAT is i think 2GB capacity max, and fat32 is 32 GB, xfat is 256GB


that doesnt matter on formatting, you will still need the 2 GB to launch the modlauncher from stage builder, then SWITCH sd cards when the app comes up, if this fails, then you HAVE to install the app to the wii menu or install homebrew from the 2GB

I did install the app. I said that in my previous comment; first sentence.

I know that you need a 2gb card to run it from the stage builder. I'm asking how can use a larger card with the app. You said it could be done, but it's not working. What am I doing wrong?

Ok, so i'm a Noob at Brawl Hacks(big surprise, :P), and i plan on doing a machinima in the future. Quick question though, i don't plan on getting a Wii, but i did hear that you could still do Brawl hacks and get Homebrew on a Wii U(well, to hack Wii games anyway). I'd like to know what are the main differences when it comes to the instructions in the Opening post if i decide to hack Brawl with a Wii U rather than a Wii? What would i have to do differently?

no need to pay people now, the code manager doesn't work on a mac, and for the file patch code, as per standard proceedure. I ask to verify a few things:

your SD card, is it a 2 GB or smaller? (without further tinkering with the wii, you cant use a larger SD card and be able to load mods (or codes))

have you installed your mods (if any) in their proper place?

stages for example should be
private/wii/app/RSBE/pf/stage/melee/STGFINAL.pac

for fighters
private/wii/app/RSBE/pf/fighter/diddy/fitdiddy00.pcs

for music
private/wii/app/RSBE/pf/sound/strm/x24.brstm

I'm a 3D modeler, but I'm not too good with rigging, vertex hacking, etc. when it comes to Brawl hacks. (The most I've ever done is make recolors for previously made and textured models.) My question is, is there a place on these forums (or elsewhere) where I can post links to models that I've made (or collected. I would, of course, give credit to the original creator.) so that others who are more experienced can rig them so they can be usable in Brawl?

in any case, it may be a good idea to contact the uploader of the hack and ask what the full setup needs to look like,

There are also region specific things which either dont work, break, or act weird when used in other regions

alright crap had to format my sd card for some reason. now i set it up just the way it was before and when i start brawl through gecko it wont work.
basically after a while of using textures and psas i got tired of always checking if single things worked now when i got the last mod out of about 5 without testing and it required code manager i put the codes in a seperate .gct from the RSBP01 file put the texture and moveset in as normal but it then stopped working. so yeah unable to play modded. any idea whats going on?

for who? sfx ID is either a hexadecimal number of a sawnd intstallation or target

or  a decimal number to name a sawnd file in the gecko modlauncher (BRSTM copier can identify this for you)

you may have some bad GCT in gecko


try this one https://www.dropbox.com/s/l1tqgefs873139a/rsbe01.gct (https://www.dropbox.com/s/l1tqgefs873139a/rsbe01.gct)

in any case, it may be a good idea to contact the uploader of the hack and ask what the full setup needs to look like,

There are also region specific things which either dont work, break, or act weird when used in other regions


like a PAL announcer call wont work on american and vice versa


Hey, do you think you could remake that link and add an unrestricted camera hack? Your code seems to be the only one that seems to work for my Wii :)

RSB?

what they mean, is instead of them listing every combination that last letter can be, they just put X (like in algebra math)


X = either E, P, or J

so
RSBE, RSBJ, or RSBP

if you are using american brawl, its RSBE, if japanese, RSBJ, if european version, RSBP

the game doesn't make folders it doesn't need, the game (without hacking) only needs the AL RP and ST folders

mods use a user-created ddirectory, you need to create the PF/fighter/xxx folders yourself on the computer (right click -> new -> folder) also, unless you are using riivolution from homebrew or already installed on the wiiU, you cannot use an SD card larger than 2 GB or brawl will say the device in the slot cannot be used

remember, you need to have a way of applying mods, booting the game normally wont yield mods

on your 2GB or LESS SD card

private->wii->app->RSBE->pf->fighter->yoshi->fityoshi00.pcs


also, if you are using a european copy, its RSBP (in the codes AND for the folder)
if you are japanese copy, its RSBJ (in the codes and folder)

the one from the link in my last post should work reguardless, if you are using riivo version 1.05, please upgrade it to 1.06, check that your codes on the SD card do NOT have any file patch codes (to be safe, just delete your SD card cheat codes for brawl), or codes that may cause the game to freeze, brawl w/codes (turns on mods and codes), and GXDraw hook (recommended for brawl, another hook is used if you use the online patch code)

im guessing at the strap screen (weather or not you have a strap mod) this means you have 1.05 riivo (1.05 riivo does NOT work with brawl unless you use a console's built in gamecube port and do NOT connect a single wii remote [ original wii only, will crash no matter what on wii U]), update to 1.06

if you have, and its freezing somewhere else, the mod is bad or you installed the mod wrong and/or forgot something (i do not recommend brawlex mods or slot ports to anyone just starting to get into mods or not experienced to the point they can make their own character mods from scratch)

the xml will never have any role in crashing, DELETE fityoshi.pac and fityoshimotionetc.pac from your sd card if you have those file(s), delete common5.pac and mu_menumain.pac from your SD card,

the following files can crash if they are corrupt or bad (only accountign what you are testing and up to that point):
strapen.pac, OPMovie.thp, sc_title, mu_menumain.pac, common5.pac, ft_yoshi.rel, fityoshi.pac, fityoshimotionetc.pac, fityoshixx.pac (all costume files in PAC form), info.pac

if you can supply video of the game crashing starting from the riivolution boot all l the way up to the crash, i can detect why exactly it may be crashing

you either deleted important files from your ISO or have bad mods (or missing or not applying, codes needed to avoid the crash ( files MUST be named after their disc counterparts (eg: common5.pac MUST be named common5_en.pac)

if its codes like "ex has Wy's IC constant" ones, those are required or it will crash, riivolution only directly replaces files, it does not alter what's not present, with gecko, its got a code that directly alters sections in memory and replaces them with ones from the files on the SD card (the codes that stablize are still required when they are noted or supplied)

a mod at the boot sequence or GCT code is either bad, or for the wrong region (main.dol mods are not compatable with brawl under riivo), its worth checking that you don't have a GCT loaded in the codes folder for brawl and that all strapen and sc_title files be removed from your SD card and test again, this is a first that I'm seeing the game fail to boot outside of riivo 1.05 or a main.dol mod

Codes go in "X:\codes\"
You only have to create separate character and stage folders (named accordingly) if you're planning on modifying the corresponding character/stage.

Here's the correct link for the original Brawl files: https://drive.google.com/folderview?id=0B4vhNdf69qaSZ0N0MnBjOXFYMU0# (https://drive.google.com/folderview?id=0B4vhNdf69qaSZ0N0MnBjOXFYMU0#)

Concerning the Wii U question, I don't really know since that's not how i do it, but from what i've heard, you should just treat it like the latest Wii version (4.3).

I downloaded the file for the PSA and looked at the files inside, but IDK where to go from here, and i don't want to try putting it in my SD card without knowing where it should go. Can someone help?

Here's the hack in question BTW: [url]http://forums.kc-mm.com/Gallery/BrawlView.php?Number=203267[/url] ([url]http://forums.kc-mm.com/Gallery/BrawlView.php?Number=203267[/url])
Everything in the "Fighter" folder goes into the "fighter" folder on your SD card. More specifically "X:/private/wii/app/RSBE/pf/fighter/ike/".
The easiest way to install it would be to copy the "Ike" folder from the archive and paste it in the "fighter" folder on your SD card.

There are also SFX that are included with this hack which may be needed to ensure it doesn't crash. (Some need it, some don't. idk It's not my area. I do mainly visuals.) Unless you're using Project: M, I'm not too sure on how to install them, but I would try it out without the SFX to see if it works anyways.
If you're really desperate for the SFX, there's a ton of tutorials on here, YouTube, and Smashboards that take nothing more than a quick Google search.

Everything else in the .zip are just visuals which are not required to make the hack work. But those are easy enough to install anyways.

Hope that helps!

This has probably been a problem before and likely has solutions on here already, but I haven't come across it while reading through the posts on this thread (I'm only a few pages in.)

I'm new to modding/hacks and I just want to add new characters and stages to play the game with some friends. I downloaded Nebulon's Smash 4 All mod following all the, limited, instructions provided. I figured out I needed to start it through the Homebrew channel though some trial and error, but when I went to select a character no new characters where present. Also, when I went to the select a stage area, the stages were all out of order and there were multiple versions of Hanenbow and Pokemon Stadium all over the place.

Can anyone tell me what I did wrong and how to fix it or lead me to another post that will help?

I have a few questions regarding PSA editing. (Haven't done this in a while.)

Can you make an event trigger:

A.) When hit by being hit by a specific damage type?
B.) When playing on a specific stage?
C.) When fighting specific characters?

Also, is it possible for Ice Climber type characters to have the second character only appear when a specific skin is selected?

The download is broken on Gecko OS
I just got a new computer a month ago and decided to get back into SSBB Hacks and noticed the link is broken, I couldn't find any other one like it.

If anybody can help me out getting Gecko Manager I would appreciate it.

Hello, and thanks for the guide.

I am trying to apply the steps under section 6 A for disc updates. All of the instructions are pretty clear but I am missing something here:

2. Launch the app through one of the methods explained above. If you're using the Homebrew Channel, rename the .dol file "boot.dol" and place it in a folder called "Preloader" in the "apps" folder of your SD Card. (In other words, your SD Card should look like apps > Preloader > boot.dol)

I am using Homebrew. I downloaded the Preloader and have in it the "apps" folder in the root of the SD card (looks like SD card>apps>Preloader (folder)>Preloader (.rar), but I don't see any .dol file to modify. The Preloader file is a .rar and this is where my confusion lies. Can someone clear this up for me?

Nice guide. Very good grammar. The tip about the Wii bricking is very helpful and strongly noted. So I need to install the 'HBC' before starting the game. Nice & simple guide, I will be returning here if I have any problems to check if I made a mistake.

I downloaded Homebrew, I now have it on my Wii as a full channel, but which application should I use to put in some of the many hacks I downloaded in a physical, unaltered copy of the game?

EDIT: I got Gecko to register on Homebrew. I'm still not sure how to get my characters and stages in from that point, though...

DOUBLE EDIT: Turns out I needed to be using Riivolution for the type of modding I was interested in, so I went and got that. I got SMBZ Mario, Bomberman, and Charlotte in, but how do I put in Bomberman's portraits and character-specific sounds.

Also, I got a shield mod, to make the shields all bubbly and stuff. I got a common3.pac, but if I put that in the System folder, it would overwrite another one I got with a Crash Bandicoot PSA. Do I need to make a sub-folder inside the System folder?

I also downloaded the Smash 4 HUD. Where would I put that at?

So I'm not exactly sure where I'm going wrong, I followed the guide to a tee Gecko OS, Softmodding and all. Everything works fine softmod wise but no matter what I do it's like the Wii Just ignores the brawl mods the names are all set correctly. I put my disc in the drive gecko loads the file patcher code and says it applied it the game starts, but nothing in game changes at all. I was attempting to use a texture mod for Lucas but it simply doesn't load the mod and keeps Lucas at his default look.

The SD card I'm using is 2GB, the directories and everything are all set correctly last I checked.

This is my directory setup.

your path is Private > wii >app > RSBE01 > pf > fighter > lucas

it should be private > wii > app > RSBE > PF > fighter > lucas

you just need to remove the text in red from the RSBE folder's name and they will work

pretty good for a first shot at mods, usually first timers are way off  in their placement

riivolution uses an XML to program the changes or swaps to be made and all without a GCT, for cheats in the mix, codehandler.bin and an xml to account for the gct must be added to the riivolution folder on the SD root, try downloading either riivo for gecko users, or one of the riivo for gecko users based hack packs then try again

Hey, does anyone have the last version of the ocarina code manager? The link on the resources page is dead and all other links I've found, including the one here, is of an old version that still has the 256 line limit which prevents exporting to GCT. Also I know that Brawlbox has it's own code manager but it has been giving me trouble so I'd rather just get what I am used to and hasn't failed me. Lost my files due to data corruption on my old HD. Tried going to the Wiird site but it keeps giving DNS errors, probably dead.

Edit: Found a version (Though I'm unsure if its newer or older due to have been on a Japanese site without any version numbers) that does what I want it to!  :D

Title: Wanna hack but on an emulator
Post by: Magicthunder on October 17, 2016, 08:53:58 PM
So I've been wanting to hack Super Smash Bros. Brawl too, but I use an emulator to play it. I own two physical copies of the game and everything but I like having it on the go is all so I use Dolphin Emulator on my laptop to play. The thing is, as far as I know, it is possible to hack an emulated wii as you would a real one, though it is MUCH more complicated. I know my request my be a bit difficult or stupid but I really just want to know how to add songs into the game at the very least. A lesson on adding in characters and stages through cloning would be greatly appreciated as well, but really the only thing I completely want out of this is new music. Preferably without replacing any of the songs already in the game, so also through cloning if that's even possible... I just realized how difficult and demanding my request sounds, its not necessary for it to be accomplished, I realize this is a VERY complicated thing to ask and I was just shooting to see if I hit a mark. Just to summarize, I would like to be taught how to add music, characters, and stages (but mostly music) into brawl without replacing any of the main assets while also using an emulator as a wii instead of an actual wii. I have downloaded the Gecko OS, I can create virtual SD cards at will, the current one I use being 2 GB in size but I can create a smaller one if necessary, and I know how to run the Gecko OS in my emulator. Thank you for taking the time to read this, I hope someone can help me out here, or at least let me know if my extremely demanding request is a lost cause. Once again, thank you very much

Alright so, i've had this problem ever since i started using GeckoOS, but it's pretty trivial, so, i haven't said anything of it up until now.

Whenever i start up Gecko OS and Brawl with Hacks enabled, compared to when i start up Brawl normally in the Wii Menu, i notice something happens. Everytime i start it up with Gecko OS, the screen gains these Big Black Bars on the sides of the screen. When i start up normal Brawl, it just has the entirety of the game take up my screen, no bars or anything.

This really bothers me because when i try to capture the footage and edit it, i have to zoom in the camera to not show the black bars and it hurts my overall quality because the pixels get blown up.

They're really huge Black Bars on the sides too, each one makes up about an inch of length on either side, and from what i've scoured from the internet, no one seems to know of a way to fix this or if there's a version of GeckoOS that fixes it. So, i was hoping you guys could help. If i could even just reduce the length of the bars by half, i'm sure the quality would improve drastically. Can anyone help me?
