Introduction

In this tutorial, you will find out how to rip track models with textures from Mario Kart Wii and other Wii games that use BRRES archives. Before we get started, make sure you have all the software listed above.

Getting Started

First, make sure you have an ISO. If you don't, look here to help you.

Step 1

First you need to make a folder called "courses". This is where you will save all the track SZS'.

Using Dolphin

  1. Open up Dolphin.
  2. Right-click on the MKWii ISO, and then click on "Properties".
  3. Click on the top tab that says "Filesystem"
  4. Then open up Partition 1>Race>Course and then extract the course you want the model from. Remember to add the extension "szs" to the file so it saves as an SZS rather than a raw data file. Save in "courses" folder.

Using Wiimms ISO Tools

  1. Look here for info on how to do this.

Using WiiScrubber

  1. Open up WiiScrubber
  2. Click on "Load ISO" and load in the MKWii ISO
  3. Then open up Partition 1>Race>Course and then extract the course you want the model from. Save in "courses" folder

Step 2

Using BRRES Viewer

  1. Extract the BRRES Viewer files into a folder.
  2. Once your course is saved in the "courses" folder, open it with SZS Explorer. Right click on the course_model.brres or the object you want to rip and
  3. then click "Export". Save in the same folder as the BRRES Viewer.
  4. Drag the course_model into the BRRES Viewer. Then right click on the model and then click "Load and Display" or double click on it.
  5. Click FileExport All Files..... Choose OBJ instead of PSK. The textures MUST be exported as TGA, or else it won't work. Then click OK. (Depending on the model, this may take a long time) The problem now is that you only have an OBJ file and the textures, you don't have a MTL that contains the texture mapping.
  6. If you have closed BRRES Viewer, drag the same file (BRRES) into the BRRES Viewer. Right click on the model and then click "Load and Display" or double click on it.
  7. Click on ModelExport....OBJ. Export it to the same location as when you exported earlier. Replace the OBJ file. Now you should have an MTL file there so now you can import it to your editor.

The most recent version of BRRES Viewer is no longer able to export as OBJ. The tutorial will only work if you have the old version, v1.3.1. You can get the old version here.

Using BrawlBox

This section has yet to be done.

Step 3

Using SketchUp

Using an Intermediate tool

  1. Using Wings 3D, Blender, Meshlab, 3ds Max, or FBX converter, convert the model from .obj back to .obj or a different file formant
    1. If you have 3ds Max, follow the steps in the Using 3ds Max section, and then follow step 7.
  2. In Sketchup, use FileImport and select OBJ (QuadFace Tools) or the different file format you exported.

Sketchup's default OBJ Importer is faulty, and can make you lose UV mapping or polygons, when importing the model

Using 3ds Max

  1. Open 3ds Max
  2. Click on the Autodesk icon in the top left corner
  3. Click Import and then import the OBJ.
