Title: Smash Wii U Research and Development Thread (Testing possible! Coders needed!)
Post by: Soneek on August 02, 2015, 12:24:36 PM
So, as some of know, I've been successful in loading custom content in Smash U. Dantarion and I are the only people that have been working on the game. If you have any specific questions that aren't in the FAQ, post them here, and I'll answer it if it's impossible for you to find out on your own.

FAQ
Q1: How are you able to load custom files?
A1: There is a program called Cafiine written by Chadderz that can load custom files through a network connection. I'm looking into adding SD card loading support, since Smash seems to be the only game that actually mounts it (for pictures), and because loading through the network takes ages depending on what you're loading. The entire game compressed is under 12 GB, so a 16 GB SD card will be useful in the future. You also need a kernel exploit for your Wii U, which is currently closed source and private. I'm on the testing team for the exploits, and I'm not allowed to hand it off to others right now. Please be patient. I can test hacks for you in the meantime.

Q2: How are you getting around Smash's dt00 and dt01 archives?
A2: I'm using the game's patch engine to do this. I am editing the resource(us_en) file in a Smash update's patch folder to have the correct file sizes, and also flags to load files outside of those "packed" archives. I am also appending the patchlist file with any custom files I'm inserting.

The music was the easy part, and the format has been downloadable on Brawl Custom Music for most of this year (same format in both 3DS and Wii U music). I will write a BRSTM to Smash NUS3Bank converter for (http://i0.kym-cdn.com/photos/images/newsfeed/000/143/193/cad-20080602-358b1.jpg?1309710446)less porting of songs, since that's exactly what I implemented into BCM. Important music notes are below:

Audio notes for Smash U
The music and SFX format for Smash U/3DS is Namco's IDSP variant of Nintendo's DSP ADPCM codec. These IDSP files are all stored in NUS3Bank archives. The music archives contain only 1 IDSP file, but the SFX, Announcer, Palutena's Guidance, and Starfox conversations have multiple IDSP streams contained in one archive. I'm working on a script in Python to inject these NUS3Banks, but I would be more than happy to give specs to someone that wants to work on a GUI for this.

The song IDs are mostly retained from Brawl, so they've been adding onto it. The only huge difference is that Snake's sound ID (S) is now Megaman's.

My Music tables are editable, and there are slots for menus as well. I was able to add a 2nd song to the Results Display Screen table, so I currently have it swapping between the default song, and the new SSB Credits remix with equal probability. The only problem is that it doesn't show up in the My Music display menu, but it takes effect. The music tables are also editable for Master Hand/Master Core in Classic mode. If you delete those table entries, it'll select a normal Final Destination song, and play it without changing music, even when changing from Master Hand all the way to Master Fortress.

Song titles are editable, as well as source games, and sound test descriptions for EVERY song. We don't have to worry about shared source games like we do with Brawl. I would need help creating a GUI for this.

I can edit textures
I did a model swap, placing Chrom's model from Robin's final smash over a Marth slot. It sort of worked, and there's a lot to fix.

One big thing I need to learn about is the model format, and I'm reading RandomTBush's maxscript for importing Smash U models into 3dsmax. I want to start off small, and test vertex hacks. If anyone wants to help out with this, we can work on a vertex injector.

12/13/2015 Notes:
My personal current to-do list, and help is welcomed:

BRSTM to NUS3Bank script
Finish offline NUS3Bank inserter/appender
Add extra SFX clips to voice/SFX NUS3Banks, then load through animcmd/sound.bin files
Add and display song titles, source game, and descriptions for additional song slots (involves sound/config/bgm_property.mpb, ui/message/sound.msbt, and param/ui/ui_sound_db.bin)
Finish patch resource modifier to load any custom file with proper flags
GUI for managing music files, My Music settings, and song titles, etc.
Update Smash Custom Music website to generate sound.msbt file based off template lists

To be done by someone:

Convert models to editable format, modify, then reinsert (use RTB's maxscript (http://smashcustommusic.com/temporarycrap/SuperSmashBros4WiiU_NDP3.zip) as a reference)
Finish subroutine hash table for PSA related stuff (use dantarion's site (http://anonym.to/?http://opensa.dantarion.com/s4/mastercore3/) and Sammi Husky's tool (https://github.com/Sammi-Husky/Sm4sh-Tools/tree/master/AnimCmd) as current reference)
Figure out stage collision data
Animations (.omo files)
GUI for texture editing (for now needs texconv2.exe, but hoping to move to non-SDK tools)

Documentation at OpenSA Wiki (http://anonym.to/?http://opensa.dantarion.com/wiki/Category:SSB4-WiiU_Documentation)

I have a lot of clarifying to do on stuff, since I've mainly been writing scripts with no looking back, just to make sure I can get things working. If anyone has any specific questions, let me know and I'll answer as well as I can.

Speaking of moveset editing, thanks to SammiHusky, it's possible, but I just need testing.

https://www.dropbox.com/s/179zukguna9f9pi/body.zip?dl=0 (https://www.dropbox.com/s/179zukguna9f9pi/body.zip?dl=0)

The character in this test is Captain Falcon. The only edit I made was making the third part of his jab do 10 damage, rather than 5.

If anyone is able to test this for me, please provide results.

I have to wait for my 2nd console to come in the mail before I test, since my current one stopped loading webkit code for some reason.

That's fine. I can wait.

I know you said the exploit is closed source, but is there a page in which we can see/read its progress?


Title: Re: Smash Wii U Research and Development Thread
Post by: Soneek on August 06, 2015, 08:30:38 PM
There's really only the Wii U Hacking and Homebrew Discussion on GBATemp.

One thing I do wanna do with the animcmd files is to try and load non-existent sound IDs. I have a feeling we shoud be able to add IDSP entries to NUS3 archives. I have my IDSP builder finished, and my source will be on Github later for anyone that wants to implement the process. It's easier than the process of building a BRSTM from scratch.


Title: Re: Smash Wii U Research and Development Thread
Post by: ItalianStallion on August 07, 2015, 01:59:36 PM
I don't expect anyone and everyone to follow Soneek on YouTube, but you [censored]ing should! Specially if you're interested in this subject and want to kept in the loop. This is a hacking forum after all.

Anyway, most recent video is below:

http://youtu.be/j8DS99mnQFM (http://youtu.be/j8DS99mnQFM)

It has the general music hacking, as well as some more model hacking/imports.

This time, Chrom is over Ike, and of course that's a much better fit.

In the video you'll find other imports such as Blaziken over Captain Nipple and Shadow over Sonic.

This video answers a let of my questions such as the imports being a 1-slot, and also being able to have the original character at the same time of the import. A resemblance to Brawl hacking.

The legs issue is still at hand, but I'm assuming this can be fixed and it is just a rigging/bones issue with the model.

#Discuss

Post by: KingJigglypuff on August 07, 2015, 02:41:41 PM
Notice how Chrom's legs only mess up when in Idle or similar poses.

It might have something to do with slope events.

As for moveset editing, I would try something more advanced if the Events were further defined. (Looking at you, Sammi. <:v)

One thing to note, most characters will have different models for 4 player matches and 8 player matches by default. I'm researching with Dantarion to see if we can add more music slots, and hopefully costume slots too.

Interesting thread! If you need any help, I know how to script in c# pretty well and I've vertex hacked melee before (which involves some hex editing), so I could try and take a look at these files if you want (not sure I'd know much about them though, lol). I'd also like to ask how you actually get the Smash update's patch folder in order to look at these files (I have an old dump of the files, but that's it)?


Title: Re: Smash Wii U Research and Development Thread
Post by: Large Leader on August 10, 2015, 01:12:11 PM
Something interesting KJP and I have noticed is that IASA frames (or Allow Interrupt) command doesn't seem to actually be there. Either we're bad at finding stuff or...

1. Allow Interrupt hasn't been identified yet
2. Allow Interrupts now are located in other parts of the characters files

That's all we can tell at the moment. I'm pretty sure Sammi/Dant/Soneek/anyone else could find more than we can at the moment.

Also, Soneek, I was wondering if you would be able to test a change I made to Ryu recently. If you aren't to patch to the most recent update, I also have a change I made to Ganondorf from the very first patch (I believe) that I'd like to see if it was edited properly

I'm not able to test any Wii U stuff at the moment. The webkit exploit stopped working on my current console, and I'm waiting for a 2nd console to come in (my eBay seller hasn't shipped in almost 10 days so I'm sorting that out). I'm working on a loading solution for the 3DS version, so I'll update here once I'm able to easily load files other than music there.

Post by: Soneek on August 21, 2015, 07:03:26 AM
Cool. Cafiine hasn't been released officially yet, but that's currently necessary for loading any custom files at all. I've started documenting some stuff on the OpenSA wiki, mainly related to music and sound banks so far. I'm learning about model formats now, since I really wanna test some vertex translations. Of course Shadow would be neat, but a few friends are suggesting to try and vertex hack Ryu into Goku. I can easily change the Hadouken voice clips to Kamehameha, and I understand texture replacements.


Title: Re: Smash Wii U Research and Development Thread
Post by: ItalianStallion on August 21, 2015, 09:32:03 AM
Interesting. Both Goku and Shadow would both attract many "customers" if you will.

Also, I most likely have the most recent firmware, so am I completely [censored]ed?

My Wii U updates automatically, how do I stop that?

Also, aren't there two new DLCs scheduled to come out in October? The ballot winners? That would most likely require a system update, therefore how are we to avoid that in the future?

if you are on 5.5.0 then yup you are most likely screwed since 5.5.0 patched the kernel exploit which is what we will use to ram edit and file replacement. To have your wiiu not auto update on standby you need to turn off the quick start menu thing and the download  stuff while offline also you will need to block nintendo ips with opendns or just delete internet settings.

wiiu future is once we develop an emunand we can simulate we have the latest firmware and not update but that isnt possible yet and nintendo is making sure everyone online gets an update wanting it or not and there is no turning back, i have my wiiu unplugged from the web since 5.3.2 to use future homebrew but most people  prefer internet play to homebrew its their call.

Not currently. Have you been able to load custom music from BCM? Also, I'd like your assistance testing other suff if possible. I'd need to help you create a custom patchlist that the game will load.

im down for testing, im not a codder i dont know how to find  and decifer stuff and such,but like i said im on the mewtwo update only, also brawl vault is extremely slow for me i cant seem to get it working it takes like 20 seconds to load a page and that is if i dont get an 503 error so if you can PM me on gbatemp  im pedro702 there.

When those videos of Ryu were leaked, they replaced Mario's files.

As br3 says, the DLC is in the updates. Once you get the DLC, it will unlock the file. That's why the file size on the on the eShop is so small.

I think what he meant is that whenever there's an update, the files are DL'd to your WiiU, and when you buy it, it's unlocked.

So far I got Falcon saying YES every time he tries the Fair, coins popping up when Mario does up tilt, Attack13, grab hit, flame effect when hitting properly with Fair, and reduced the hit lag from 1 to 0.5. Marth's 3rd side special down hits downwards.

I can do testing on the Wii U version again finally.

You're just now getting your Wii U that you bought on Ebay shipped from somewhere in Asia!? Damn.

I had issues using Animcmd on the latest files, so I'm doing manual edits for now. So far I got Falcon saying YES every time he tries the Fair, coins popping up when Mario does up tilt, Attack13, grab hit, flame effect when hitting properly with Fair, and reduced the hit lag from 1 to 0.5. Marth's 3rd side special down hits downwards.

I can mainly help with trying and documenting stuff for now

Very interesting. Love reading progress like that, and would love to see it live on Youtube even more,

Manual edits as in hex editing?


Title: Re: Smash Wii U Research and Development Thread
Post by: Soneek on December 07, 2015, 02:06:01 AM
It started out manually hex editing, but I wrote a script to modify stuff for me. Right now I've just made every meteor smash in the game have a flame effect, to look like actual falling meteors. I'm actually reducing the hitlag time everywhere. Any move that don't have any effects tied to them are getting some neat effect who's origins I'm unaware of. I'll do a vid if my SD card behaves tonight.

Sources for fighter subaction information are at Dantarion's site (http://anonym.to/?http://opensa.dantarion.com/s4/mastercore). By eyeballing it, the 3DS and Wii U subactions looked identical, aside from reverse endianess. I need to verify this though.

I'm adding more documentation to the main OpenSA wiki, specifically for audio related stuff now. I haven't had a chance to test anything since yesterday, but I'll see if I can do the meteor smash video.

Thanks, and I'll try! I'm finished with exams after next week, so I'll have more time to work on everything. I'm doing a stream tonight with edited attack effects, and hopefully some other neat things. 8 PM EST at  the BrawlBRSTMs Twitch page (http://twitch.tv/brawlbrstms).

If anyone has firmware 5.3.2 and an SD card available, I can help get the testing environment set up for custom patches. It's not fully tested with all files, but I at least know my method breaks right now with extracted param files. I can help you migrate your Brawl BRSTMs to the Sm4sh format.


Title: Re: Smash Wii U Research and Development Thread
Post by: DarkLordRS on December 09, 2015, 09:47:44 PM
It's worth noting that a lot of similar moveset-related stuff has already been done with 3DS ACMDs, including everything Mario can do in the air spiking except for forward air, a glitched DK-to-Pikachu swap, Mii Gunner with an utterly hilarious projectile output, glitchy Foxco (with a fox base), nerfed Greninja (all hitboxes are now weak windboxes), and more utterly stupid things.

there's a melee fox already in progress, as well as halved framedata shulk and melee falco, all by different people. praise sm4shcommand

IIRC SM4SHCOMMAND was built for the 3DS files first anyhow, only to find they're literally the same on both versions.

I [censored] you not on that, really - 3DS still has the params and acmd hashes for swimming, something that you never access on 3DS ever


Title: Re: Smash Wii U Research and Development Thread
Post by: Soneek on December 10, 2015, 03:42:10 PM
Same, with reverse endianness. So it's easy to change moveset params at least to match both versions.

I figured out how to make custom My Music tables. I'm gonna attempt to max out at 40 songs per stage.


Title: Re: Smash Wii U Research and Development Thread
Post by: Tabuu Forte Akugun on December 10, 2015, 04:04:29 PM
Answer's probably no, but I wonder if it's possible to give Omega stages their own soundtracks. Would be effing neat.


Title: Re: Smash Wii U Research and Development Thread

At this point it's not doable. Once the game engine is figured out even more, I'd hope it can be done.


Title: Re: Smash Wii U Research and Development Thread
Post by: Tabuu Forte Akugun on December 10, 2015, 07:33:21 PM
I was just wondering, since Omega stages most likely have their own slots that may technically be used for new stages once the engine is cracked.


Title: Re: Smash Wii U Research and Development Thread
Post by: DarkLordRS on December 10, 2015, 10:16:24 PM
By sharing slots they share music, but yes, stage designs including platforms etc could easily be changed - just look at how different each omega stage is, comparing FD to boxing ring to pac land etc.

ever seen Kapedani's PM build? we can basically do that. but 9 times easier.


Title: Re: Smash Wii U Research and Development Thread
Post by: Soneek on December 11, 2015, 04:53:21 PM
Amazing news. I figured out how to add new music to the game. Specifically, these are in addition to the songs already in the game. I made the game load snd_bgm_CUSTOM01.nus3bank, and also added back 3 songs from Brawl that were cut. I have to try to add song titles and adding them to My Music and the Sound Test, but the fact that the music is expandable makes me extremely excited.

40 songs per stage will be even more customizable. I really will just need help making a GUI for all of this.


Title: Re: Smash Wii U Research and Development Thread

The music expansion should work with the 3DS version as well, as the files I'm modifying are the same format between both versions.

Soneek OP as a mofo. This [censored] hype af.

Y'all mentioned editing moveset params earlier - how, exactly? The main thing used to edit movesets atm (Sm4shcommand over on gbatemp) doesn't have any compatibility with parameters at all, and I'm not sure what to change involving literally staring at the hex values for [censored].

;-;


Title: Re: Smash Wii U Research and Development Thread
Post by: Ricky (Br3) on December 12, 2015, 07:34:09 AM
Yes, I'm quite sure it's hex editing.


Title: Re: Smash Wii U Research and Development Thread
Post by: Soneek on December 12, 2015, 09:32:03 AM
I used dantarion's site as a reference for the hitbox command IDs, then wrote a script to find all of them and change the downwards angled ones to have a flame effect, and everything without any effects to have a coin effect.

Also, 8-Player Smash can be enabled on all stages. Start at 2:53.

I know it's mostly just hex editing atm, but I look through, say, Falco's params for the point where his IASA for a given move would be and cant find anything relating to it.


Title: Re: Smash Wii U Research and Development Thread
Post by: Large Leader on December 12, 2015, 11:42:55 AM
Oddly enough, when checking the scripts with kjp, we couldn't find anything relating to iasa in a majority of moves.

To add to this, I compared a Smash 4 character with their Brawl counterpart for a move I know has IASA, but found jack squat in the Smash 4 character.

Have you guys only looked at the animcmd files? There may be something in the param files for each fighter. I'm not sure though.


Title: Re: Smash Wii U Research and Development Thread
Post by: DarkLordRS on December 12, 2015, 01:44:48 PM
I've mainly been checking the param files, can't find the IASA values I'm looking for. No way it's directly locked to the animations..


Title: Re: Smash Wii U Research and Development Thread
Post by: KingJigglypuff on December 12, 2015, 01:47:27 PM
I'm using AnimCmd, so I have to open the Directory, rather than the files themselves.

I read a mention of another program that edits Smash movesets as well though. Does that open the files themselves?

Though I thought I saw something that related to IASA, but when I went to look again to verify, it wasn't there.


Title: Re: Smash Wii U Research and Development Thread

My personal current to-do list, and help is welcomed:

BRSTM to NUS3Bank script
Finish offline NUS3Bank inserter/appender
Add extra SFX clips to voice/SFX NUS3Banks, then load through animcmd/sound.bin files
Add and display song titles, source game, and descriptions for additional song slots (involves sound/config/bgm_property.mpb, ui/message/sound.msbt, and param/ui/ui_sound_db.bin)
Finish patch resource modifier to load any custom file with proper flags
GUI for managing music files, My Music settings, and song titles, etc.
Update Smash Custom Music website to generate sound.msbt file based off template lists

To be done by someone:

Convert models to editable format, modify, then reinsert (use RTB's maxscript (http://smashcustommusic.com/temporarycrap/SuperSmashBros4WiiU_NDP3.zip) as a reference)
Finish subroutine hash table for PSA related stuff (use dantarion's site (http://anonym.to/?http://opensa.dantarion.com/s4/mastercore3/) and Sammi Husky's tool (https://github.com/Sammi-Husky/Sm4sh-Tools/tree/master/AnimCmd) as current reference)
Figure out stage collision data
Animations (.omo files)
GUI for texture editing (for now needs texconv2.exe, but hoping to move to non-SDK tools)

Documentation at OpenSA Wiki (http://anonym.to/?http://opensa.dantarion.com/wiki/Category:SSB4-WiiU_Documentation)

I have a lot of clarifying to do on stuff, since I've mainly been writing scripts with no looking back, just to make sure I can get things working. If anyone has any specific questions, let me know and I'll answer as well as I can.

Added to OP.

Whoever wants to research something, just call it and we can see if someone already looked into it.

Tried KJP's edits, but there's an issue using AnimCmd with the Wii U files right now. It doesn't save the data properly.

As part of my music expansion project, I'm compiling a list of what I'm including on Google Sheets. Feel free to look at it, and if you wanna start adding personal suggestions to it, let me know and I'll give edit rights.

Super Smash Bros. for Wii U - Custom Music Expansion List (https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1UVZADlNEUVAuZ74eAe7KHtL5CJR1Qo6xvesu7ZYaoOA/edit?usp=sharing)

I'm adding songs from every other version of Smash first, then I'll start appending each series ID with new stuff. I can do the file naming, but anyone else can take care of the other fields.

So, everyone should block updates on their consoles. I'm not 100% sure, but the exploit might be usable on the latest firmware by the end of the year.

If your gateway/router has the ability to block domain names, add these to the block list for now. You will lose eShop for now. OpenDNS is another way to block domains, but make sure you have the OpenDNS updater installed on your local computer, so that your public IP address stays up to date. After turning off your Wii U, do not leave it plugged in. Disable automatic software updates. Unplug your Wii U when not in use as a safety precaution.

nus.c.shop.nintendowifi.net
nus.cdn.c.shop.nintendowifi.net
nus.cdn.shop.wii.com
nus.cdn.wup.shop.nintendo.net
nus.wup.shop.nintendo.net

If you need eShop access, make sure to verify that there isn't a firmware update yet, then change your DNS address temporarily from the OpenDNS stuff.

This. And I plan on downloading Bayonetta and the others, so should we all hold off until that last update, then proceed?

It's possible to manually install updates. I'm on 5.3.2 and able to install updates, and also purchase DLC from the eShop. I'd block stuff now to be safe, and we'll have workarounds later.

Where exactly on the settings do you go to block automatic updates and should it be for Smash Bros or the whole Wii U itself?


Title: Re: Smash Wii U Research and Development Thread (Testing possible! Coders needed!)
Post by: KingJigglypuff on December 18, 2015, 10:41:26 AM
It's Automatic Software Download under Internet Settings, right?

Yeah. Unfortunately, this does not prevent system updates from downloading, only game updates. That's why we need the DNS blocking. :/

As long as we have the latest firmware version (or spoof it), we can use Nintendo Network. I'm able to still go online with my 5.3.2 console since it's spoofing, but the online only works without loading mods. Still, it's great news for anyone still wanting to get the most out of their system.

I'll personally wait until there's an exploit that works with the latest update. As much as I would want to be able to use the mods myself, I don't really have an urge to do so at the moment. Just enjoying the game and using it to come up with ideas for mods.

Thanks for the info anyways, I really appreciate that you put all of it up :)

I'd be cautious just in case there happens to be a new system update before the 5.5.0 exploit is fully functional. There's been research on 5.4.0 for almost 6 months now, and that extended into 5.5.0 since the system didn't change too much. I'm not sure how long it would take if 5.6 or 5.5.2 shows up for an exploit to be finished.

the latest exploit works with the latest update 1.1.3
if you are on 5.5 everyone is suggesting to block updates asap
google tubehax tutorial for an easier dns blocking method


there are zero guarantees hacks will work on 5.5.6
if you block updates you can still play online
using open dns you cannot access eshop
not sure about tubehax though.
but like soneek said
if u really need eshop access, make sure there is no legit nintendo updates before changing your dns

hacks should be available before the end of the year for every firmware below and including 5.5.5
there are already codes out, and couple of good ones too I may say.

Didn't even know there's a "5.5.5". I'm still on 5.5.0

While I am interested in Sm4sh... I hate to admit that I'm also interested in the piracy side of things =\ There has been many cases where I have bought the game afterwards but with myself being locked out of a job, could help me test the waters even better before going for that copy..

I'm just copypasting what I put in a Facepunch thread.

Hi all. I'm having trouble getting the game to load a character texture mod properly. I've replaced the classic and all-star clear textures fine, so the file replacing isn't the real issue. There's another texture for the fighters that I'm unsure what it is, but I think it's preventing the edits from loading as intended.

(http://smashcustommusic.com/temporarycrap/WFT_Color.jpg)

^ What I'm attempting.

(http://smashcustommusic.com/temporarycrap/model.nut23.jpg)

^ What seems to be the key to fixing this. I'm ignorant when it comes to modeling and textures, but if anyone can help shed light on this, I'd be grateful. The texture edits end up underneath the other layer of the model for some reason without modifying this above map or whatever.


Title: Re: Smash Wii U Research and Development Thread (Testing possible! Coders needed!)
Post by: Ricky (Br3) on December 27, 2015, 10:34:31 AM
Isn't that the normal map? Don't quote me on that, I'm also a noob when it comes to 3D modeling/texturing.


Title: Re: Smash Wii U Research and Development Thread (Testing possible! Coders needed!)
Post by: KingJigglypuff on December 27, 2015, 10:48:02 AM
Yes, Br3. That's a Normal Map.

Smash Wii U characters use a Material Map for color alongside a Normal Map for detail. I think they also use Alpha Maps for transparency as well, but don't quote me on that.

I believe you should be able to just edit the Material Map and leave the Normal/Alpha Map alone.


Title: Re: Smash Wii U Research and Development Thread (Testing possible! Coders needed!)
Post by: DSX8 on December 27, 2015, 12:39:34 PM
what KJP said.

pretty much for texture edits for chars, all you have to do is just edit the diffuse texture/map, and it'll work with the material data and normal maps just fine.

Since slot expansion is possible for Sm4sh, I wonder if that part of homebrew will soon be available for games like Mario Kart 8.  Either way, my Wii U is ready for this.


Title: Re: Smash Wii U Research and Development Thread (Testing possible! Coders needed!)
Post by: Soneek on January 06, 2016, 08:19:27 AM
Hopefully people will do more work on MKT8. Bean and Chadderz are attempting a new CTGP iirc.

So music expansion, character slot and costume expansion, and stage expansion with both normal and omega stages is possible. I don't know what our memory limits are yet though, and work still needs to be done for getting the game to load new stages and characters/costumes. Also gotta figure out Kirby hats and stuff.

Also, I took the collisions from 3DS stages and put them in the Wii U version. They worked, but they need to be scaled larger to fit with the Wii U character sizes. Other stuff like stage hazards still need research, but I'd love to have all 3DS stages ported at some point.

You can edit moveset with a tool Sammi made (not to the extent of PSA though), but I believe you have to Hex edit a certain Offset after saving. I believe the offset is 0x0C. After editing, you would take the file you edited into a hex editor and add the amount of commands you added while editing.

I was just coming here to remind before to block updates lol. Thanks!

Also, the music expansion project is nearly complete. I have 1042 songs available in the sound test now, and for stage use on my end. This KEEPS ALL THE ORIGINAL songs, and adds 561 new ones. You can see my Google Sheet with the changes. I added back every song that was in Brawl and exclusive to Smash 3DS to start, then kept going from there.

There's not many people doing research, or even making friendly tools to modify stuff. The music stuff will be polished on my end, but other aspects of the game need work. It's different from Brawl in most aspects of the game.

I have not done it for the others yet, but I think I understand how. It's similar to how I figured out how the game handles the music files. It'll be tedious, but I feel it'll be good to jumpstart this so people can dive in when they're ready. I'm working on getting extra costume slots to load for everyone as well.

So. Cool news.

Still haven't read how to on 5.5.0 dough.

edit: So finally my laptop works again so I looked it up. No 5.5.0 just yet. but did read a good way to block the Updates while still being online and not having to jump through hoops to block it:

Quote
Blocking future updates is critical to retaining exploits on your system. The WiiU automatically downloads and applies updates as it receives them, even in standby mode! You will still be able to play your games online with this, as long as the GAMES THEMSELVES are updated.

Step 1: Power on your system and go to Settings > Internet > Connect to the Internet.

Step 2a: If you don't have a connection already set up, do it now but when it asks if you want DNS to be Automatic or Manual, choose Manual and follow the rest of the steps.

Step 2b: If you have an existing WiFi connection, press X or tap the button in the top right corner to view Existing Connections

Step 3: Choose your connection from the list. I recommend only having 1 at a time so that if you are roaming with your WiiU or have more than one access point it doesn't switch connections and download an update on you.

Step 4: Change Settings > Press the Scroll Arrow on the Right > DNS > Don't Auto Obtain

Step 5: Tap the Primary DNS and set it to 107.211.140.065 -- You can leave the Secondary DNS as 000.000.000.000 (Some people don't know anything about networking and think this could leave their system vulnerable to updates. If you're paranoid, just set the Seconday DNS to 107.211.140.065 as well).

Step 6: Confirm > Save > Save > Quit

I can confirm that this is working as I was able to get online (tested with Mario marker) and in my Downloads is the blocked Update.

Some things I'm writing on my own. The texture thing isn't completely finished though, cause we need to handle mipmaps. Some people are already making neat textures, and I'll leave it to them to showcase it once we get them importing into the game.

Main thing though, we'll be able to handle texturing for new models now. There's someone working on model stuff, but I'll see about getting him help for it since this is high priority. I'm hoping to have an update regarding stage editing in a few weeks also, since I wanna start getting tools out to the current stage creators.

So music is the easy thing that's taken care of, we're almost done getting things ready for model textures, CSP stuff is doable now, and next on the list are stage and character model imports. A couple people are working on animation research as well, so I'm really hoping you guys will have what you need to dive into this soon.

you are aware that the hykem exploit hack will work with 5.5.0 and 5.5.1, right? he said it himself.. u just need to wait till late february or mid march when he releases it.

No, I don't even know what that is... Plus that's pretty late D= I'm going to be behind on Super Mario Maker, Smash, Hyrule Warriors, and Splatoon D= I really want Bayonetta to boot, as she comes out on my birthday T~T

... wait.. you mean I can get 5.5.1 and still use the tool? o.o so there hasn't been any other system updates? o.o

Course I did. I blocked using the special DNS redirect I posted a bit back. But problem is, blocking the console update blocks all other updates, as those updates needs the console updated first =\ So i can't do things like get the update for Smash or Splatoon or even Mario Maker.. which locks me out of online mode for those games. Specially Mario Maker as I can't play other people's stages or even upload ones I've done.

Once the 5.5.x hole punch comes in, we'll be able to manually update the games ourselves. But as it is, blocking the primary console patch pretty much locks us "waiters" out for a good while while the makers sit on the code.
Note: I'm not blaming the coders. Just annoyed that I didn't know about this hole punch before and stuck on a version I can't punch yet.

I'm ready to try out sm4sh modding. Well.. "ready"... need a new freaking pc first.. but yes, I want to bring Kit to the next gen... even though I still have to finish her on Brawl... >.>

yep even if u update, u can still use the tool xP

the 5.5.1 update was just to fix a system glitch and improve performance... but other than that, the coding doesnt block the hykem exploit.

Can't wait until 02/04/16 once I have all characters stages, I will block automatic updates and start the hax process now that I know no further updates will be required!

Stallion, set up the TubeHax DNS in your Internet connection.

Go to your Internet connection, Change Settings, DNS (set to Don't Auto-Obtain) and type in both primary and secondary:

107.211.140.065.

Well, they say you can't run homebrew yet, but this effectively blocks eShop and all update servers.

Hey Tabuu, long time no speak. Thanks for this info, I'll look into it.

Yes, can someone confirm this please?

I have already downloaded both of those hoes, and should have the latest update.

By the way is that Sans brother from Undertale? lol. I forgot his name, I know it starts with a P.

Yes
Apperantly 5.5.1 is still safe
dont forget to disable standby functions and the quick access home option

you can also disconnect ur internet connection all together on your wii u

one more thing
to test you have everything set up
try going to eshop, you should get an error.
you will also see a red x on the download box which is located on the lower right corner

just google tubehax dns if you need more info

Well, this just happened - http://youtu.be/pDPSmKwP9ss (http://youtu.be/pDPSmKwP9ss)

This confirms everything then. So let's figure out a check list to hack SM4SH properly.

I'll probably make a tutorial written thread, since no one else wants to do it lol.

- Ensure you have version 5.5.1
- Ensure you have downloaded all DLC you want prior to disabling and hacking.
- Remove Wifi Completely.
- Try going into Wii Shop and if error message is received, then it was successful.
- Disable Standby Function
- Disable Quick Access Home Option

Did I miss anything? Does it matter what order these are some in?

WiiU. As I explained in the other thread, 5.5.1 hasn't been worked on yet as the most recent closed source version that's being worked on is 5.4.1 (or something, the patch before Cloud). The open source one is 5.3.2 or something, which is the Ryu/Roy update, iirc.

Thanks. We can't recolor hair yet. Stupid reason why. But as soon as we can, we will be.

Most of the models are on the Models Resource. You can recolor any of the diffuse textures (they're flat colors, for the most part). You can send them to me and I can send them to the guy who puts them up on twitter.

I believe that's incorrect because I have seen Soneek's videos where Cloud and later on DLC characters were included and even edited. He has even made music expansion for Cloud and Bayonetta stages, so that confirms that the version with those characters included, can be altered. Now I do not know what version that is.

so does caffiine not read whole 3d models or something?
it just reads texture swaps?


i dont really care for model imports
but more for model editing
is what im trying to get at

but from what im understanding is that the script does not allow to edit model sand repack
which is why i dont  even try


thought this was pretty cool:

in future videos the guy has actually unlocked the whole CSS
making one of the first Custom CSS

I wrote a script that imports new vertex coordinates exported from 3DS Max. I'm too lazy to hex edit all the time, but I do it to test little thinga before going big.

Music expansion works on the 3DS, and the 2000+ songs is possible. Costume specific sound banks, adding voice banks for Mii fighters (not outfit specific unfortunately), adding extra costumes for fighters, adding voice calls for victory screen (losers as well), a lot of stuff has been going on lately. All my audio research is relevant to both versions of Sm4sh. I'm taking a break for the week though, but if peolple wanna do vertex edits in 3DS Max of models imported with RTB's script, I can try importing them to test.

vertex editing through hex editing?
tedious...

I edited the sword in 3ds max. Exported the vertex information using a script. Soneek is a genius, so he did the rest.

Well
looks like the first Vertex Hack has been done
and by KTH
who blames him on doing Shadow tho, i would have done the same
not hating on KTH but i think i would have done a better job at the texture edits
it kinda looks rushed

Also, KJP did some balancing on Corrin, but idk where the video is. He'll probably post it up whenever he remembers this thread exists.

Important: thatsmash4modder (doesn't have a KCMM account, but is on reddit and stuff) found the Allow Interrupt/IASA code. Which is awesome, because we had no idea where to find it before.

So much fun to be had.

im more hype about This then i was with any Smash DLCs
becuase this is basically Free DLCs we self make and we wanted
also filereplacement in the wii u will be more easy
once tools come out
games can be dumped into eshop sorta versions where u can probably add all the Custom DLC u want.
it is already possible to edit these sorta eshop versions to load different content than the original without using a patch process, just rewriting stuff

The best part is that we have so many more things to play with. The only down side is that we'll want more things to play with than we even have now.

It's just amazing. We can make PSAs that revolve around stance switching with attribute changes built-in, thanks to Shulk. We can have PSAs stop a single character and beat them up, thanks to Bayonetta. We have so many unique final smashes that we can repurpose. We have even MORE transformation final smashes that can be customized to our liking. We have Villager with the tree mechanic along with all those projectiles. Heck, we have Corrin with his Dragon Lunge thing to pin a single person. We even have Ryu with Street Fighter inputs!

Smash4 honestly feels like the holy grail with having (mostly) everything we wanted.

I know this thread exists. :v
! No longer available (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qsMWxcMgE0M&feature=youtu.be#)

Here's what's shown.
-Nerfed Counter Surge (reduced knockback and knockback growth).
-Allowed interrupting early with Ground Side Special and Side Special Pin Jump (though I might delay the Pin Jump Interrupt by a few Frames, as the momentum carried is a bit much).
-Buffed Up Special (final hit has increased knockback).
-Buffed Neutral Air (halved startup and earlier autocancel).

I made more edits that weren't shown.
-Forward Air and Up Air can autocancel earlier and interrupt earlier.
-Up Air comes out a Frame earlier and its hitboxes last a Frame longer.
-Back Air has slightly more horizontal momentum and has reduced startup.
-Down Air has a final hit to make the move worth using.

I also made a minor edit to Diddy Kong that gives him back his Hoo Hah (though I slightly nerfed the restored Hah to not be so ridiculous) and made various speed adjustments to Palutena. Neither of these have footage yet though.

Once the Wii U exploit is public, what I want to do is make every character at least viable and not trash. I'll be leaving higher tier characters alone, unless they have something blatantly broken or something I want to adjust.

Yes, especially since one plan is to port all 3DS stages to the Wii U version, as well as cut stages from past games. We'll be fine for 1:1 collision porting at least for the 3DS stages, but we need to get hazards and animations figured out.

Wait what? Why? Aren't they handled the same way as everything else? That's weird to be the one thing we can't do. What characters can we change the hair colour of? (My spelling of colour gives away that I'm British. -_- Why would the spelling be different?)

You'll have to find where the hair color code is located. Like take Skullgirls: The characters has a core pallet. The game reads a file to change the colors around instead of having 22 or so different and separate sprites. So if we can find where the skins read the code, we can easily bend that file to our will then.

When we do achieve modding perfection for Wii U the first big project before PM style stuff has to be Ice Climbers. Who didn't love playing as them?

And if we get them to work in 3DS Nintendo will have some explaining to do.

I just wanna put that thought out there.

Using public resources should yield a few results. The smallest issue is finding a proper .smd importer/exporter for a modeling program. Perhaps Blender or 3DS Max. The latter is ffy for me as that never worked. Now, the largest issue is getting an imported model to load textures. I've yet to go deep into researching such, but I digress as this is for Wii U development :T

So...has all this development been tested on the digital version of Smash Wii U? Not that saying I have the digital version, just curious.

For now u can buy a sole used console on ebay that has firmware 5.4 or below.
They go abot 75 to 100 bucks
Try not to get something with disk errors because u may need certain games to update to certain updates.

Or u can find someone on craigslist and negotiate with them.

Are the higher versions of 3DS or Wii U even hackable anymore?

Lmao. Thanks bro.

Yessir. So there is no software restriction for 3DS?

Is anyone even working on the Wii U version as far as making those versions hackable?

I have money. Take it.

Not anymore. There are various exploits out there. Hell, you can now downgrade withe latest two firmwares, even on New 3DS. Haven't done it yet though with my New 3DS XL.

too bad there is too much drama going on with the WiiU hax for 5.5.1
each time i look on gbatemp
more useless posts about people asking when its released
so it seems like the Devs of those hacks has left gbatemp
so now we know nothing and no update progress or anything
so im guessing the release date of the WiiU 5.5.1 hack is same time as half life/portal 3

I didn't get that Half Life joke, so it's not funny. If this is the same MarioDK from years ago, your English has improved immensely.

Now seriously though, no one is working on the 5.5.1 downgrade? To me it's like "Ok well we are good, so [censored] everyone else" mentality. I will literally pay [censored]s to do it for me. I just don't want to buy a second Wii U, when I already have one...

Soneek, where art thou? :(

Post by: Soneek on March 10, 2016, 11:12:37 AM
Thr current 5.5.1 exploit is currently closed source, since releasing it will 100% yield a system update that patches it. Right now we really just need to force the game to load patched files thru the SD slot, by figuring out how to patch that into the game's RPX, and then load the edited RPX with the 5.5.1 ELF loader. It's easier said than done though, and I have no ETA since I'm not personally working on that.

I am still mostly doing proof of concept stuff, and handing it off for others to finish what I've started for most things. My main focus now is model stuff. I have vertex injection figured out, but I'm working on injecting vertex weights for my primary task. Mainly, my plan is to be able to take existing models in game of assist trophies, Pokémon, and other NPCs, and rig them to the bones of whoever we'd want to do a complete swap over. I'm working on Blaziken, Infernape, Garchomp, and Hydreigon to renew some of my imports from my Brawl days. I'm almost there, but there's something extra rather than just changing the bone IDs and weight ratios for each vertex.

I mainly want to have as much research finished as possible so that everyone can easily transition their experience from Brawl modding over to Smash U.

Other things I've finished are nus3bank injection, IDSP building, someone is writing a tool for music setting edits based on my research for music expansions, costume specific sound banks, costume expansion, CSS repositioning, SSS repositioning, probably some other stuff I'm forgetting.

Soneek, where art thou? :(
Half life 2: Episode 2 left off on a major cliff hanger back in 2007, and valve never once told us if they made episode 3 or Half life 3. It's spawned it's own Meme, "Half Life 3 Confirmed" as it's a joke. Also, it's a joke about Valve and it's "hate" against "3", as almost nothing they've put out was done in 3's, which leads to the "3? it'll never be made" kind of idea

http://knowyourmeme.com/memes/half-life-3-confirmed (http://knowyourmeme.com/memes/half-life-3-confirmed) might help a bit.

and by KTH
who blames him on doing Shadow tho, i would have done the same
not hating on KTH but i think i would have done a better job at the texture edits
it kinda looks rushed

dont expect any 5.5.0 or 5.5.1 the iosu thing is probably gone forever not becuase the trolling of the raid but probably becuase the haker itself kept postponing the hack and im guessing he lost interest and prefered to drop it.

In afew days there will be a new fw released to support the new nintendo account system and im betting 99% of the people didnt blocked their connecting and will go to 6.0.0 or whatever  it will be and i bet most of you will be asking for 6.0.0 support  in afew days.

Yeah right, I highly, highly doubt that. FBI agents? They wouldn't waste their time.

Now this is power to the fact that this is that guy's bull[censored] excuse to stop working on it.

It seems to be a case of "Well, I got my hacks working, who cares about the others." Which [censored]s up many good potential hackers who actually have something of good quality to bring to the table, to be unable to work because of this issue.

While I am also anxious and losing patience, I think it's too soon (for me anyway) to start bashing the guy. My only hope is that if he did stop the project he shared it and his knowledge with another hacker.

how does stopping your wiiu from updating will lead to brick? lol

stopping wiiu from updating is the easiest thing  the only downside is you loose the ability of using youtube and installing game updates.

Go to your internet settings change the dns from auto obtain to
1-107.211.140.065
2-107.211.140.065

done, cant be easier.

Don't lump us into the "stupid" pool.

new account you can pre register on it but the update will be this month for the wiiu and 3ds to incorporate the changes and im saying this in advance becuase alot of you guys leted your wiiu go to 5.5.1, im on 5.3.2 still and i can do everything the wiiu is capable of doing since both 5.3.2 and 5.4.0 have kernel released.

Sonnek was already doing smash stuff like music and posting it here way before 5.5.0  got released and if you had blocked then on 5.4.0 you would have had all the goods now.

Well im just warning  in advance since the wiiu updates automaticaly without anyones  concern, specialy if you have  quick startmenu and standy downloads ON it will update even by being off.

Its up to you guys if you want to block the updates or not.

I and manny people spent like 5 months on 5.3.2 without being able to play online or install gameupdates waiting for the kernel acess and now both 5.3.2 and 5.4.0 can spoof the fw and play online and everything, if you want to hack a console  the first rule is be on the lowest fw possible, this is valid for every hacking scene.

Go to your internet settings change the dns from auto obtain to
1-107.211.140.065
2-107.211.140.065

I heard that setting the second dns to 0.0.0.0 does the same thing. Don't know if it's been tested or not, though.

yeah it does but i always used the two  the same value and im on 5.3.2 still with no change so it works  both ways, to be sure you should still disable the quick start menu and standby downloads options.

Yeah, I turned of QS Menu and standby downloads as well. Hoping the exploit gets out. Don't really care when, just want it sooner or later lol. If not, I guess I'll have to look for a new WiiU

The kernel is private.  If nintendo patches it,  it will become useless to future firmwares therefore no need to keep it private.  I doubt it will get patches tho,  since last firmware only edited the browser.  Perhaps if there is a major firmware change that accomadates for the new nintendo id system, than it may be released.

i follow the wiiu scene since the very beggining on gbatemp, i even beta tested manny wiiu apps, i was the guinea pig for the nnu patcher wish lets you acesss e shop on spoofed 5.3.2 and 5.4.0 and so on, i was one of the first to do the VC injects and such, the devs have the kernel for  the 5.5.1/5.5.0 fw long time ago and they said several times even when people keep begging them, that they will only release it once its patched becuase this is the last kernel they found  and if nintendo sees it and patch's it then all upcoming wiiu fws will never be hackable, not saying there arent anymore kernel entrys on  upcoming fws  but they havent found any extra ones so far.

They are keeping it on check so yeah the sonner nintendo patches it the sooner its released or they will be holding it until the nx launch day most likely.

I also know why iosu wasnt released and it might never be even tough i cant say it, so dont expect the iosu anytime soon if ever to be released just hope for the kernel to be patched by nintendo that is much more likely to happen.

lol im not making anything up if you followed gbatemp wiiu scene you know the devs themselves said they have working 5.5.0 and 5.5.1 kernel the same devs that released 5.3.2 and 5.4.0 kernel, i wont go trough 897 pages to find the several posts the devs made confirming they have 5.5.0 and 5.5.1 kernel acess your free to browse that

if you followed gbatemp wiiu scene you should know this is all true, im not making stuff up, im not rumuring upcoming ssb4 characters its an actual fact that preety much everyone knows on  the wiiu scene like i said go trough that thread and you will find alot of info and confirmation from the devs along with pictures and such they posted, but like i said its buried on 897 pages.

Been talking with a bunch of people and reading a lot. Carnage is preeeetty much on point. Releasing the exploit would allow Nintendo to patch it. If they can't find any more entrypoints (aka, everything is patched out) the WiiU won't be hackable for any firmware after the one that patches it out. They're waiting to see the new patch released and see if there are any vulnerabilities. This is all just an assumption, of course.

But it makes sense.


Title: Re: Smash Wii U Research and Development Thread (Testing possible! Coders needed!)
Post by: Don Jon Bravo on March 21, 2016, 02:56:02 PM
the private kernel is only given to devs atm since they believe they are the only ones who would make good use of it dev-wise.  if its true that there are numerous private kerneks(2-3), than that is why they dont leak any.
users will just acquire it for piracy and many devs are against that too lol.
its probably true tho they forget about modders like us who really need the tools to make magic.
There is a huge ongoing war right now between users and devs pertaining to this situation.

Post by: ShadowLuigi~NG~ on March 22, 2016, 11:59:27 AM
Can you really blame them Don Jon? Most people on the internet don' t know how to act and will willingly spread the exploit out of share enjoyment and "thinking of their fellow man" without thinking about it first. You have to remember that most modders are teenagers who do not think first before unintentionally screwing everyone over with the exploit. The Devs are playing the "Better safe than sorry" roll. Had to really trust anyone on the internet these days.

but that doesnt mean that this is the last "hackable" way. it can possible come that way that in next patch, they [censored] something up and we get our mouse hole for hacking! only problem is how to find it is the biggest question

As for the whole firmware thing. Remember to keep in mind the whole Nintendo might be stopping WiiU production thing. It could drive the price of 5.3.2 wiiUs up (assuming you want to buy one if you have the disposable income).

Hopefully, Nintendo abandons the WiiU without another firmware update leaving 5.5.1 the last firmware and with the entrypoint that people are so desperately hoping for an exploit.

so if we like the Defaults 8 skins on a charater but there is a vertex/texture/model import we like
Not a Problem :D

looks like sm4sh will also be better for modding than Brawl is already(as soon we get the tools & etc. for it and 5.5.1 wiiu hack for us who learned about all of this too late)


Title: Re: Smash Wii U Research and Development Thread (Testing possible! Coders needed!)
Post by: Large Leader on March 28, 2016, 10:42:16 AM
Smash4 definitely looks like it'll be much easier to mod. But imports will be more of a problem (assuming people cater towards both 4p and 8p smash) as 8p smash characters have hand models (open, half open, fist) along with a slightly lower poly count.

Also, making normal maps won't be the most fun thing in the world. Best quality normal maps usually come out of baking a high poly down to a low poly imo (unless you make some reeeeeeally good spec maps and use that as your normal map). You could kinda sorta fake them, but they won't look as good as possible if one goes about texturing them the same way they are textured in smash4.


Title: Re: Smash Wii U Research and Development Thread (Testing possible! Coders needed!)
Post by: BullockDS on March 28, 2016, 11:53:42 AM
Newbie question: would having a proper normal map be a necessity for imported models? I mean, from what I've seen in model rips, assist trophies et al don't all have normal or shade maps, but is that something that IS necessary for player characters?


Title: Re: Smash Wii U Research and Development Thread (Testing possible! Coders needed!)
Post by: Don Jon Bravo on March 28, 2016, 03:33:42 PM
more than likely along the line we will steal shaders and materials from other models that do not require baked normals
hence only normal textures
plus spec textures if desired
but yea, since research is limited due to no access for modding, it will take even longer to jot this down.

another speculation:  due to how dlc works we may be able to import rigged dae models and rename bones or import animations off the fly
just like that kid goku hack was made in brawl back in the days by Mastaklo...
of course it will take some modifications, but importing rigged models may be possible.

There IS a possibility of a WiiU update today (most people are hoping for this), so it would be best to block updates and change your dns to TubeHax in the chance that the entrypoint for the exploit is patched.

If it is, the exploit will most likely be public.
If it isn't, the exploit will most likely stay private until it is.

This is very good news since many, including myself, have been stuck on 5.5.1 for awhile. Even if the exploit is patched, do you think Hykem would even release his work now? I have been lurking on the gbatemp site and he seemed pretty upset about something and hasn't logged in since Feb 1st.
hyken is gona permanently, rumor has it he sold his exploit to some havking team for afew grand and im preety sure this is the real cause that he is gone, the raid thing was a bull[censored] rumor, same way smea sold his iosu exploit to the gateway team and such, most hackers just sell their exploits instead of releasing them, the thing is the wiiu isnt even profitable to make a dongle so the company isnt even gonna develop one to begin with.

Dont wait for hyken he wont come at all, everyone on 5.5.0 and abode their best bet is hopping nintendo patches the kernel exploit for 5.5.0/5.5.1 besides that there is little  hope.

MyNintendo/Miitomo have launched today and no sign of a new patch. Guess everyone will have to wait a bit longer.

At least Loadiine is confirmed to have worked for 5.5.1, if that's any consolation to anyone who knows what I'm talking about.

and other from KTH (saw it on they´s twitter) :

It's not that we can't, it's that it takes time and effort to do something like that.

People want Smash 4 stuff in here handed down on a silver platter, but forget that it takes coding expertise, bugtesting, and patience to deal with the occasional mistake error. It's not an overnight thing, specially not when being done by one person who is being unpaid for their work, and frankly, underappreciated.

So, if anyone wants to whine about how other sites already have Smash 4 mods, let them. But this place was, is, and always will be the place to go when you want to browse through mods due to the fact that we were here when others didn't take notice.

This site by far trumps any other mod hosting pages out there. Organization is key and it's well thought out here. A good bit of the code should be reusable for file sharing, I would assume. Building a mirrored "brawl" vault seems like a logical path to follow. Has anyone thought about opening a new board in the forum for all the smash 4 mod development threads?

Before bringing up such discussion, I would highly suggest waiting to see if the new exploit is released so as to allow more of the population the opportunity to even be able to use the hacks. In the case of Brawl, it was relatively easy to hack/homebrew because it was riddled with holes to exploit. The WiiU isn't in a similar situation.


Title: Re: Smash Wii U Research and Development Thread (Testing possible! Coders needed!)
Post by: Ӄit ßallarɖ on April 05, 2016, 09:12:25 AM
Eh, while true, could also have a "back room" for it, as to have the new vault programmed and ready for public consumption when the hack is finally released.


Title: Re: Smash Wii U Research and Development Thread (Testing possible! Coders needed!)
Post by: GaM3r2Xtreme on April 05, 2016, 10:33:44 AM
Exactly what Kit said. There is an exploit around and everyone is already dying to get their hands on it when released to the public. When its available, the forum might blow up with all sorts of things seeing as the popularity is already growing now. A board has to be in place in case this happens to keep brawl and smash 4 apart, due to further development happening on that front as well.


Title: Re: Smash Wii U Research and Development Thread (Testing possible! Coders needed!)
Post by: Large Leader on April 05, 2016, 04:56:47 PM
I, along with others, are extremely sure that it won't be released any time soon. We're willing to eat our hats if it turns out to be otherwise, but we don't expect the exploit to be available any time soon. No need to rush, let's just take our time.

well im not asking for an entirely new bv or anything, they could just slap the ssbb character template with ssb4 characters added in, they wouldnt even need to code anything, it would be basicaly copy paste and change the pictures.They could just keep it as a placeholder template if they ever want to make it more unique and such they could make it later.

the only new code required would be a button on the main  page to switch between viewing ssb4 and ssbb, like i said a simple placeholder would be enough for now.

You could try blocking the site that hosts the updates.

More than half of the responses are people saying it doesn't work or its "locked" their Wii U.

Is there a safer method such as Settings > Updates > Turn Off, etc. Something of that nature?

Why not connect to the Tubehax DNS server (I think that's what it is called) instead? I would think its the easiest method to block any updates. No setup is needed, just put 107.211.140.065 as the primary DNS server. You can keep the secondary one 0.0.0.0 if you would like.

I can safely say I've been using the custom DNS without a hitch (cept when I want to update a game..), which was the 107.211.140.65 IP. I don't use any other services (other than Miiverse, which loads fine still) so not like I'm missing anything interesting

Hey everyone, thanks much for your responses and help on this scenario. I guess I should have disclosed that I have 0% hacks on my Wii U. Assuming TubeHax is something through Homebrew (or whatever the equivalent is called for this system).

Auto Updates on the Smash 4 settings, or on the Wii U settings?


Title: Re: Smash Wii U Research and Development Thread (Testing possible! Coders needed!)
Post by: GaM3r2Xtreme on April 06, 2016, 06:26:12 PM
Nope, Tubehax is actually nothing more than a DNS server someone made dedicated to blocking Wii U updates. Its not even a homebrew. Just pop that IP in to your internet connection settings and away you go preventing any auto updates. If you already have an existing connection, just edit that and change the DNS settings from auto obtain to manual. A new screen should show up and that's where you put the IP address at.

Never assume, always use google (I googled it myself and it's literally the first search item). Essentially, go to system settings and go to your internet connection. Change it from automatically detect dns (or whatever is automatically detecting under DNS) and change both primary and secondary to the following:

107.211.140.065

and you're done.

Turn off auto updates from WiiU settings. I don't think it's available in Smash4.

Yeah they do, unless you have TubeHax's IP running. It'll block any update, even games. It'll still show up in your download cue, but it'll have an error on it. I revert to my default IP when I need to update a game, like Super Mario Maker, then change the IP back after it's done downloading the game's update. Now, if there's a system update and you try to just update the game, it'll complain that you have to update the system first.... that's where the non-hacked consoles are going to run into issues.

Sp you are on 5.5.1, the highes FW available for wiiu explain to me how can star fox that comes out in like 2 weeks come with a higher fw than what is available? ...

you do realize fw in actual games is always way behind the console online fw distributions right? So far not even a single game has 5.5.1 on it yet, games come with the fw they were developed upon considering star fox has been developing for awhile if it comes with 5.5.0 its already preety  advanced lol it might even come with 5.4.0 like all recent games so far did dispite 5.5.0 and 5.5.1 were released long time ago.

what will never happen is a game releasing with a higher fw than what is available online, that will never happen.

there is no new wiiu update if your using tubehax dns setting or some sort of dns block since the wiiu cant connect with the server to ask if a new update is avalable or not the  X cross will appear being there an update or not.

I was able to see a "System update" for 5.5.1 when I was on 5.5.0 when I was using Tubehax also. It still calls for updates automatically without my say but it gets stopped from downloading (via X'ed out), so it's not making a lick of sense. I've been using TubeHax since I updated to 5.5.1 (cept the few times I changed it to update games) and it never had a "system update" in my cue before. This is the first time I've seen it.

edit: wtf. it's missing now o.o I'M SO CONFUSED

edit 2: After checking I went back into downloads and it's there again... WTF WiiU. Stop [censored]ing with me D= You guys seen my photo >.< It's clearly there in my Downloads! X.x What evs. As long as I'm online, what.... evs...

That system update you saw for 5.5.1 back then, was it possible that the console saw there was a new firmware avalible when you did an update for a game? I remember you mentioned that you turn off Tubehax to update a game, maybe the Wii u did a partial download before you turned Tubehax back on? Gbatemp mentions the red x doesn't directly mean a new firmware is available, but instead it failed to find out if there is one last time it checked.

I will port Tabuu over to Smash U, to answer the question on last page.

Lord Fredrik and K. ROOL will also be made. ^_^

I have a feeling all the big ballot candidates will be created. We don't need Nintendo to create the content we want! We can do it ourselves.

I'm on 5.5.1 =p I can't get any games to update while on 5.5.0. Why I'm freaking out about this phantom patch in my Download Cue.

i already told you its normal... tubehax blocks acces to nintendo update servers and when the console asks thoses ips to see if a new update is available it gets no response so it shows the system update list with a red cross meaning it couldnt verify if one was available or not. that is preety standard stuff ever since tubehax was created long time ago.

Thing that's throwing me off is the fact it didn't do that to me before. As often as I go into my downloads to stop the Demo from downloading, I've never seen the fake system update before today, and I've been using Tubehax midway through 5.5.0. I go in that download cue every time I turn on my WiiU... One of these days I'll let that damn demo finish downloading lol. Still, wigged me out. Uhg.

If thats the case, the hack might need an offline install mode, and require users to disconnect from the internet until the hack is complete. I wonder if the entry point is still through the use of the Wii U browser.

Vertex mods involve editing the original mesh. What you're thinking of is model importing. We aren't there just yet.

UV editing is texture stuff, so yeah skin mods.

uv editing is editing the maps of the texture layout inside 3ds max.
this simplifies custom textures over an edited mesh.

That's awesome! UV and vertex editing at it's finest. I guess that actually answers my next question of how vertex modding work too. I'm assuming Super Mega Buster 123 Win64 Gigabyte (what a mouthful) took the Ryu model and moved the vertices around in order to make a look-a-like goku. I'd assume you can't add new vertex data in or remove any of the edges or faces either. Is it possible smash 4 is looking for the same file sizes similar to how brawl was? For example the sound affects in brawl you couldn't exceed specific sizes otherwise  things started acting weird.

At first I thought there was a move-set edit as well, but it was only another UV edit for the wave.

UV editing wasn't really used for Goku.

I have been kinda curious to know if the devs would be willing to do a partial release of the 5.5.1 exploit to groups in need of it to further their development in mods for games like smash and mario kart. The only issue with this would be a higher chance of it being leaked if it were to fall into the wrong hands.

Well don't give up just yet. We could possibly have the exploit in our hands this weekend. Whoever NWPlayer is talking about "be on" needs to communicate with her with whatever is happening in the background. I don't know what, but it could be good news. Let's hope for this communication to occur, otherwise we might be waiting just as we did before.

To be frank, I don't want Melee 2.0 nor Brawl 2.0, I just want Sm4sh to be its own thing, taking from both Melee and Brawl without being a v2.0 of either.

Once Sm4sh modding picks up and the exploit drops, I'd like to get a group of people to create what would basically be "Patch 1.1.6. The Fan Patch". in which characters would be lightly to heavily changed, depending on where they are on the tier list. I'd also like to remove/fix/adjust the really jank things about Sm4sh (Rage, Footstooling, Glitches, Single Player Item spawning, etc).

My ultimate goal is to make every character at least viable in someway without being either too bad to even use or too broken to even bother with.

I agree wit KJP, balancing characters is ok but don't try to bring back melee or brawl, they already had their time and the reason why the smash bros comunity became so cancerous in some ways was because of how spoiled they became thanks to pm's "stick to the past smash bros instead of moving on" idea.

Let's face it. I'm a Wii U owner, and Nintendo has just given up on the Wii U.You say it's a bad idea, but then you say it's a great thing.
I'm getting mixed messages here.
I want to hack SSB4, but we don´t know if Nintendo is going to do the last patch on Wii U. But I hope they do not that. I Love to hack that game and maybe is to test it today.

Could it be that the floodgates have opened? Are we looking at a new stepping stone, or risking an early release straight into a patch?

Seeing as we've been modding brawl to be more like Sm4sh, do you think some people are going to mod Sm4sh to make it more like brawl?

It'd be amusing I guess, just a random thought that entered my mind.

You're kidding, right? It could be fifty years into the future, and we could be on Smash 12: Electric Boogaloo, with 150 characters and a roster that looks like it came out of MUGEN more than anything, and certain folks would still try to emulate Melee's stuff through modding because to them it's the only 'true' Smash game and anything that isn't a direct sequel to that thing is automatically bad.

Seriously, Nintendo should just release an HD version of the game to sate those guys.

I'm happy it leaked because we can finally get more people involved to mod smash 4. I'm not happy it wasn't the original creator of the exploit to be the one satisfied to open up and give the 5.5.x holy grail to the community.

Leaking also means that there is 99.9% the exploit will not carry over to the next Wii U firmware update now that Nintendo knows where to look (one of the reasons why the exploit was held back in hopes to wait out until this next update comes and passes over fixing the hack).

Either way, the leak will give the developers time to focus on an IOSU exploit instead (if they haven't been already).

Thanks for doing this Kit! I'll check this out thoroughly later tonight and give any input that comes to mind.

You can also download nus3bank music files from Smash Custom Music. They work (replaced the remixed Ken's theme with Guile's SF4 theme). Use the drop down template and choose Smash on Wii U.
It has everything but the Bayonetta music, which I have a pic of.

Everyone has there own image of what smash should and shouldn't be. If one of the games stray away from a vision a group has, this group will speak it's mind. If not that group, then another group would, hence the reason why we had Brawl+, Brawl-, BrawlEX, Project M, ect. in order to satisfy all the different groups of people who wanted different things out of smash.

Anyways, has there been any input on getting a vault setup for smash 4 yet since the new exploit is around? Maybe call it "Sm4sh Vault" to keep individual games of the series separate while keeping a similar naming conventions?

There's been some discussion about it, and progress is moderately slow as Vyse is the sole coder of it. So far I believe we'll be going with Smash Vault and use our actual Vault, but make it so the current submissions are tagged as "Brawl" mods, and so people will have to tag their newest submissions for the game they are (Be it Brawl, Smash U, or Smash 3DS).

The choice to only view selected games' submissions will also be added, so you don't have to browse through the huge amount of mods in the Vault to find the Smash U mods.

This is what's kind of "decided" as of now. We'll be creating the Sm4sh Forum sections sooner than the Vault though.

There is also http://gamebanana.com/games/5547, (http://gamebanana.com/games/5547,) but I haven't seen any new releases of mods.

Sounds like renaming "Brawl Vault" to "Smash Vault" will definitely be easier to do over mirroring the layout of everything and slapping a new logo on top. The only worry that comes to mind is how would stage or character selection work? Characters would be easy since most carried over to the newer version of the game, but the stage list would almost double. All those images would have to be separated with a Brawl and Sm4sh Divider. Just a thought.

Is there a different thread going on where everyone is talking about this? Or just PMs as of now?

We've already got the forum/gallery structure working. No real need to actively separate them, really.
But yeah, with that exploit released, we need to start getting our ass onto it. Feel free to hassle us about it. That's where we get our energy from.

A reminder? I'd say that witnessing a "competitive project" draining creative talents away from the community, only to get them under threats of legal trouble by openly competing with Nintendo would be a good reason not to want a second Project M. Nothing to do with Melee itself, although the love for that game didn't help in the grand scheme of things.
I'm pretty sure any other sort of major transformative hacks would be perfectly fine, though.

EDIT:

Don't use that.

I would highly recommend using GameBanana or directly linking your edits until the Vault gets a Sm4sh update. http://gamebanana.com/games/5547 (http://gamebanana.com/games/5547)

The reason why is because the website host of Sm4shmods (Mastaklo) has been wanting to make a profit off of Sm4sh modding (one sure sign is the use of ad.fly and the whole issue with his Shadow mod on the Vault).

I would LOVE expanded slots for music. I tested a track last night on Suzuku Castle, and it worked.

That, and the ability to have names and such.

Sm4sh will get its own CSS on the Vault, don't worry about that.

anyways another method of injecting hacks is to dump your game via DDD app, and than just replace content in the appropriate area
remember to back up everything always

IDK where else to ask this, and GBATemp isn't helping me that much. To those who have experience already with Smash mods...

1. How would I add on to a patch? I want to use TS4M's mod pack alongside a song titles file I edited, but IDK how to do that. I tried dragging and dropping the packed files from his RAR over the open directories in Sm4shExplorer, but Sm4shExplorer doesn't like that. I feel so limited.
2. When I open an extracted CSP from a .nut file (just to test out the texture extractor), all I get is black with some random pixels. I downloaded the DDS plugin for Photoshop to open the files.

I had trouble with that too at first. Basically, don't replace the file, but the entire folder. Let's say, for example, you wanna replace
palutena -> model -> model.nut & model.nud
you don't drag n' drop the nut/nud files over the ones in the explorer, but you take the "model" folder from the pack you downloaded and drop it into the character (in this case palutena) folder. That will overwrite any files found in there.

In short, replace entire folders, not single files one by one (god, I'm terrible at explaining). Also sorry, can't help you with your second question, didn't do anything with the CSP yet and I don't use Photoshop either.

Ohh, so you're only trying to take bits and pieces from his and put it in your own?

Go ahead and make a backup of the vanilla patch folder from your dump. Then, take TS4M's pack, and replace it in the patch folder that Sm4shEditor reads and overwrite and files that is wants to. Now when you open Sm4shEditor, it wlll think that TS4M's patch folder is vanilla. You can then extrat whatever you want. Then, put the vanilla patch folder (the one you backed up) back in the place that Sm4shEditor reads from (replacing the TS4M patch files). Then add the files you extracted back into the vanilla patch. Then pack it all up and put it on your SD.

I think that will work. It does in my head. I've never tried it.

Oh... I kinda had a brainfart there, my apologies. I thought you were talking about the RAR packed files, not the ones that are actually called "packed".

Well, Sm4shExplorer calls them a, to quote "forbidden extension", so I don't think you'll have much luck there. AS of right now, it seems there's no way to edit already packed files, so you best bet would be to contact him for the actual, unpacked files, if you have the means of doing that, at least.

Nope, I actually just tried that myself. Sm4shEsplorer doesn't care about the "export" folder, it loads the files from the "workspace" folder and everything else from the actual ripped game. The "export" folder doesn't get touched at all.

You need to dump the patch. Use Uwizard or (better) NUSDownloader (https://gbatemp.net/threads/download-the-new-nusgrabbergui.411228/) and dump the latest update. Make sure you check the option to compile the update.

If your dump freezes before getting the Patch folder, just his "enter" in the command prompt window. It should then start going again.

Its an error that some people seem to be getting.

Nano. Do you know if anyone is working on a better way to load Smash files? This process is so tedious (copying everything I want from TS4M's pack to a custom one, editing the parameters, patching everytime I want to change a file, etc.).

It's not freezing, I'm just not sure which file format / structure the updates have to be in for this purpose. There's no "compile update" function in either Uwizard or NUSGrabber, so I just downloaded them without decryption. One gives me no file extensions except "tmd.224", while the other gives me a bunch of files with ".h3" and ".app" files.

The end goal is to make easy tools for texture and model editing, similar to BrawlBox. First, we need more research about the file formats and how they work in the system. Right now we need to just experiment with the different files in the dump an see what happens if we edit certain files.

Its a brand new system compared to Brawl, so the researchers have to start from scratch.

In UWizard, click "Decrypt Contents" to get the folders.

For Sm4shExplorer to read the update, you just need to chose the update folder (which will have the three folders). You should also have the two big archive files and the ls file in the content folder for it to be read.

Also, I'll ask here, because I want to make sure I get an answer.

Been having TexID problems (model turns a weird red), so I decided to use that Python script to fix it. Is it supposed to lag the computer hard when running? It's pretty annoying that it slows down my computer to pretty much frozen.

Not in my experience. It usually takes a few seconds at most, which could also be attributed to my laptop itself.

Could you give specific instructions as to how you set up Python and eventually ran the py file?

I managed to make a new slot for Mario earlier, complete with working cosmetics, so... yay for not having to replace costumes, I guess. Didn't try to make custom stuff, so I just copy + pasted the cosmetics from another costume. After all, I was only testing if i could get it to work. But while browsing through the CCS files and trying to compile a list of what file and folder does what, I found some I just can't find the use for.

Does anyone know what the chrn files in data(eu_en) -> ui -> replace -> chr files are used for, namely 12, 40 and 41? These are obviously names that are used somewhere, but I can't find where.
chr_11 (http://i.imgur.com/NucWWb0.png) This one's the name used on the CSS
chr_12 (http://i.imgur.com/1fyPJiO.png)
chr_40 (http://i.imgur.com/ylAPOJu.png)
chr_41 (http://i.imgur.com/Pjs9vJz.png)
I replaced all the files with others, but couldn't see any difference, besides obviously the chr_11 one. It's also kinda weird how only a handful characters actually have chr_41 files (the clone trio, Mr. G&W, DHD, Falco, ROB and Wario).

I don't know the answer to your first question because I know next to nothing about Smash 4 modding, but I will say that what those characters all have in common is that they are the unlockable fighters. Do Ness, Ganondorf, Bowser Jr., and Jigglypuff also have chr_41 files?

Heh, good eye, they indeed seem to be used for the "x joins the battle" screen after beating them. Looking at this video (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DIb6I50Oj1M) and comparing it with the chrn_41 from above, the letters appear to be identical. Especially with the large "O" sticking out like that.

Also, yes, only the above mentioned 8 and all the DLC characters have those files, so I guess that's solved at least, thanks.

I remember Brawl having already a TON of textures and even some neat PSAs just one year after the release...

Considering that, Smash 4 is taking forever.

Tbf we already have cbliss. We haven't looked into animation swaps ATM but that would help open up PSA making a ton. Otherwise all we can do is make more marth and dark pit clones

Theoretically we could have as many characters as the fan roster pictures that they had for Brawl, and it's no joke. We haven't actually tested the limit. Off the top of my head (because I don't remember) I think the number was in the thousands.

Right now, we can add as many costume slots as we want, as long as the proper files are in place. However, unsure about the adding of characters.

I have all kinds of problems with how many attempts on it there have been with how little we actually have access to and how this has been repeated time after time.

There's not actually much to be done rn for characters like Roy who had fundamental (awful) changes made over the course of time; no matter how hard someone tried atm they could only make a literally half-assed, maybe quarter-assed version of what they want to have as an end product.

This is better.

i wish more mods like this would come (not talking about the model import as is amazing is soon-ish so i can create model import aswell soon-ish)
becuase:
early Brawl modding: awesome Retexture/recolours and vertexs to look like our fav. charaters & etc.  and no "joke" Skins maybe abit bad texture but that was becuase people was newbie not becuase it was meant as a joke

early sm4sh modding: people creating "joke/trash" mods such as:
skins based of toxic of the internet instead of like Skins based on the opposite of toxic of the internet
Those two:
http://gamebanana.com/skins/146884 (http://gamebanana.com/skins/146884)
http://gamebanana.com/skins/146881 (http://gamebanana.com/skins/146881)
and more

i dont mind bad textures if it is the person´s first mod
but This is just Stupid
with those types of mods currently uploaded
even if all the tools is there to nearly make sm4sh open source so everything is possible
i dont see sm4sh modding will kick off like brawl modding once did infact i see sm4sh modding will die off fast becuase people got time to create those joke/trash mods but not time to atleast try to create a "Not Joke" Mod
sadly nothing we can do about it other than (for me) as soon model importing or Animations is a thing i will create "not joke" mods

Are you kidding me?

We have a decent amount of tools to hack the game already. In less than 2 years of the game being released and we are already talking about model imports.

We didn't have Brawl model importing until a few years ago.

i dont talk about we dont have Tools
i talk about the way people using those tools
to create "joke/trash" mods
on the tools part its amazing we are that far
but what we get from those tools Not so amazing compare to early brawl modding
Not even in brawl modding(at any point) did we get mods like those:
http://gamebanana.com/skins/146884 (http://gamebanana.com/skins/146884)
http://gamebanana.com/skins/146881 (http://gamebanana.com/skins/146881)
or skins based on a Cancer Youtuber(will not say the name of that mod but you know when looking at the lastest skins)  and then say its a Joke (instead of use his time to make his fav. youtuber) and stuff like that
(i will prefer 9001 versions of Shadows than this)

Actually Brawl model importing using Brawlbox came to fruition about 5 years ago, 3 years after Brawl was released, and people had already been able to import basic unrigged models a little bit before that. So if you think about it, non-complex model imports after 2 years since Smash 4's release isn't too odd, we're just old af and have been through some [censored].

And from what I've heard, Smash 4's NUD model format is apparently a lot easier to manipulate than MDL0 was.

This will direct you to a GBATemp thread that shows you the tools needed for modding. (https://gbatemp.net/threads/discussion-smash-wiiu-modding-and-help-center.419366/)

This will direct you to the Sm4sh section on GameBanana, where you can download Sm4sh mods. (http://gamebanana.com/games/5547) It's noted that KC-MM will eventually add Sm4sh support to the Vault, so hang tight until then.

This video will show you how to load mods.

If you want to keep your Wii U for mods, do not let the system update. You can do this by going into your Wii U Internet settings, and changing both the Primary and Secondary DNS to 107.211.140.065. An alternative DNS you can use is 104.236.072.203.

There's no need to install that stuff. The browser exploit shown in the video will do it for you.

If you have internet access, then you'll be able to change your DNS.

Update - It worked! Thanks again, KingJigglypuff.

Where can I find a folder directory list? In order to determine what file goes in what folder, and which folder goes inside a specific folder, etc. for the character, stages, music?

I just don't know which files to replace/delete.

Silly question from silly person edited in video related stuff.

I've seen mods that lock the camera facing left and right rather than to the background; is there a mod already available or probable to let you move the camera realtime during gameplay, such as with the C-stick?

It's best for trophies and stages.

For the Pokemon, hats are part of the model, so you'd have to add on to the model. RTB did it with Bill's hat for both Brawl and Smash 4. He had to manually convert it.

We're still trying to figure out how to port Brawl animations onto a smash4 skeleton without some rotations ending up being +-360 for no real reason that we can come up with.

Probably better off to say it here, assuming it wasn't stated before.

The Wii U had a new update, 5.5.2, and Smash 4 had an update of it's own for Amiibo compatibility: 1.1.7. Take the necessary precautions to prevent updating your console and using circumventions to update the game without updating the console if you wish to continue playing online.

Post by: KingJigglypuff on July 23, 2017, 10:06:44 AM
If you didn't update your Wii U, then yes, as the only file changed was the RPX file relating to Amiibo functionality. All you need to do is update your game without updating your system, which requires you to get a decrypted dump of the update (I used JNUS) before using WUPInstaller (through the Homebrew Channel) to install it to the system.
