This is a fairly little-appreciated facet of Brawl hacking, but it's very possible to add new marks (also called franchise icons, but they're called marks internally, so I use that term instead) into the game, even modeled ones like used on the results screen.

Now, keeping with BrawlEx's theme of 'easily-aligned slots', best practices say start with mark 24. This is because 21 to 23 are spoken for by sc_selmap.pac (I've actually got 21 assigned in one of these packs, but that's because it matches 21 in sc_selmap.pac).

Just click a mark below to download the pack that has everything you need and instructions to add them.






As you can see, the last one is actually custom, a 'generic Nintendo' mark that might fit for more traditional Miis and maybe R.O.B., being that he's actually hardware, and not from any game.

Now, because of space limitations, you may need some room made in the various info files. Don't worry. I've got you covered. Get your reduced-size info files here.

If there's any questions or issues not covered by the troubleshooter, or requests for custom marks, post up.

Well, since I got half of 'em, why not finish up the rest of the Smash 4 marks? Like usual, just click the image to download it:




Edit: Since there were 5 imports and an original, have an original to complement this set and make it an even dozen.

    Also, is the process for making these simple? I may try a few.

    I've managed to get a workable 'flow' going, so I could probably write up a tutorial, but it's a bit goofy and uses Blender (as I'm more familiar with it) to create the geometry, and then 3DS Max to import the geometry and the bones you need to rig to. It also uses Photoshop (again, 'cause I have it handy) to make the texture from Blender's viewport (again, simply because I find that pretty easy to work with for doing this).

    After that, it's a matter of messing with it in BrawlBox until it shows properly in there, where it'll show properly in Brawl itself.

    Oh wow, sounds like that tutorial may be somewhat difficult to write then! If you did decide to make one I'd be interested in reading it but feel free to take your time with it.

    Well, it seems complicated, but it really isn't. I really only use 3DS Max to 'rig' to the mark skeleton and export a .dae that BrawlBox will import properly.

    One thing I do do, however, is work on the new mark in its own .brres until it works, so I can export a proper .mdl0. It's a little goofy, but it works.

    The idea is for me to expose my flow, even if it's inefficient, so that maybe it could be streamlined for a better tutorial.

    Edit: I forgot to mention that this flow I came up with gets everything necessary for the mark, including creation of textures (in both sizes, no less), so you don't have to go back and make them later.

    So, I've gotten all the images I need to make the full tutorial. The main question now, is should this go into the Tutorials forum, or in this thread?

    Well, the tutorial is designed with BrawlEx in mind. Otherwise, you'll have to just replace one, and there are few marks that aren't assigned to multiple characters.

    is the code some where on reddit or on the internet? because i tried to look for it but i cant find it (i need that code so badly).
    before you go write:"stop with everything and use brawlex or pmex" here is a reason why i dont use them.
    the reason is that my modpack is going to be on an iso file and im using wit to make it happen,now it works really nice like almost the entire game is customized.
