1  Super Smash Bros. Brawl Hacking / General Hacking Discussion / Repository of Modding Tips on: August 21, 2014, 12:03:29 AM
Hello everyone.

I'm making this thread as a place for people to just drop some general tips for others. It's not meant to be a "ask for help" type of thing, but more of a "This is useful to know" kind of place. It's meant to cover pretty much every aspect of modding, right down to interacting with other users so if you've got something useful to share please do.

I'm not trying to write tutorials here, just give folks a platform to spout random modding tips.

As a general house rule, if you disagree with a tip for whatever reason just post your own tip on the same topic. No need to call people out on their methods, and who knows? Both tips might end up helping different people.

I'll begin with a few myself to get the ball rolling.

Giving advice
A good thing to remember is that we all have very different taste in things. Try to get an idea for what someone is trying to accomplish with their mod and suggest things that'd help them do that. It can be difficult sometimes, especially if you don't particularly like the direction a mod is going in, but feedback from people who don't like what you're doing, but understand what you're trying to do can be really helpful.

Texture degradation
A good thing to be aware of is that the more you edit a texture via hue/saturation, the more it'll degrade. It'll lose details and become muddy which doesn't look good. So what I like to do is experiment a lot with colors until I find ones I like, then redo the whole thing from scratch using the "right" colors the first time.

The color white
Just try to stick to a level the same as Peach or Marth's white costumes to be safe.

No need to follow this format for posting tips, just post something you think will help someone out.
2  Super Smash Bros. Brawl Hacking / Character Vertexes and Textures / Shun's House of Pancakes - Closed. What you see is what you get on: August 31, 2013, 06:00:54 PM

Welcome hungry folk! I'm Shun_One, but feel free to call me Shun. In here you'll find plenty of pancakes to sate your appetite.

...Actually, you'll just find a bunch of textures and stuff that I've put together for my own personal use. I'll be constantly updating as I make stuff for myself, so keep an eye out. I'm on the road to imrpovement so if you've got some feed-back, spill it!

For the most part, I'm solely a texture guy, but I dabble into sfx, HUDs, and menu edits on occasion. Got an interesting idea? Drop it by me. No guarantee's I'll use it, but it's always good to hear what other folks are thinking about.

I do have some plans to revamp some of my old stuff, so keep a sharp eye. I'll mention it when I do, but for the most part I'll just do things stealthily at my own pace. If you see something you like, have a concern, or just want to chat a bit, do drop a comment off.

Or don't comment. That's fine too.

Thanks SJS for the CSPs you'll see in the fancy graphics

Welcome to the pancake house. I've got some small things to help you spruce up the appearance of your Smashing experience and even some things to help you customize it to your liking. Enjoy what you find inside!

Clicking the images will take you to it's Brawl Vault entry.

Want to make your own icon for this CSS?

Be warned when modding it, I was really close the file size limit. Indexing your CSPs will help you there.

The Download will give you a choice for which version you'd like to use. The only difference is song titles.
4  Super Smash Bros. Brawl Hacking / Music & SFX / Kid Icarus Uprising Pit [v.1] on: November 09, 2012, 09:23:30 AM
So, anyone enjoy KIU Pit? Me too.

Enjoy him in Brawl now:


To those of you with the game, play through it and tell me some notable quotes that'd make good taunts/victory quotes! And someone, if you find something that'd sound good for his final smash, tell me!

What I need from you guys trying to help?
- The Quote you think sounds good
- The Chapter it's found at (if you put where at in the chapter, that'd be a big help for me)

Thanks, and enjoy KIU Pit.
5  Help & Tutorials / Help / SSE stock icons on: April 30, 2012, 05:36:06 PM
I'm trying to replace the stock icons for SSE's character line-up during gameplay. Specifically, while playing a stage the character you'll become next is listed to the left as a Stock. What file do I need to edit to replace these?
