Region issues

Hi. I did some tests of my Ct Pack online recently, and even though I'm using a region I reserved on this page, Wiimmfi bans anyone that attempts to search on it, even myself. What should I do?

I'm new to creating custom tracks, and would like some help

Hey Wiimm, I'm new to creating custom tracks, and would like someone to guide me in making them. Knowing you've made so many custom tracks and helped so many people, can you help me to make some custom tracks? So far I've stuck to texture hacking, as my first texture hack, Alien Run, will be released later this week, but I want to make custom tracks as well. So can you help me create some please?

Take a look here: Custom Track Tutorial. --NewSuperMoiWii (talk) 23:06, 14 November 2014 (UTC)
Perfect answer -- Wiimm (talk) 23:47, 14 November 2014 (UTC)
I understand that, but I more want a partner to make custom tracks with, and I need some things the tutorial doesn't cover, such as how to take a sketchup model and import it into a szs -- Ark9026 (talk) 01:05, 15 November 2014 (UTC)
Then ask the forums for help. -- Wiimm (talk) 19:39, 16 November 2014 (UTC)


Hello Wiimm. I'm going to try to create a download site you have your creation. I'm in trouble for directory. Tell me the way of directory access restrictions. --AC (talk) 22:48, 20 November 2014 (UTC)

For the logo, is it okay if I recolor it, or does it have to be the original colors? --Michael (talk) 01:31, 30 November 2014 (UTC)

We talk about the Wiimmfi logo? Why will you edit it? -- Wiimm (talk) 12:00, 30 November 2014 (UTC)
At the time I was helping Huili with his cover of MKW Hack Pack. After he checked, the edited Wiimmfi logo was one of the things he kindly asked to be removed. I did that, and one of his friends helped with the cover and putted the finishing touches on it. --Michael (talk) 22:57, 30 November 2014 (UTC)
This is no longer needed, as I already got the Wiimmfi logo on my cover in the original color scheme. I never intended to have it a different color. Unless there is something else you have in mind, I'm done. Thanks in advance for your consideration. Huili (talk) 20:38, 1 December 2014 (UTC)
ok and closed ;) -- Wiimm (talk) 22:18, 1 December 2014 (UTC)

Words cannot describe how thankful I am for (you and Leseratte) making this possible. I am lost in joyness. --Michael (talk) 17:53, 30 December 2014 (UTC)

Help with Wiimm's SZS Tools

My custom track will not load. I tried replacing the water_course.szs's kcl with my tracks, and it loaded. The same happened with the kmp and course_model.brres, but when I added my model, Koopa Cape would not load. Is there any way to use Wiim's SZS Tools to fix this?

--Yoshinator (talk) 17:36, 30 November 2014 (UTC)

Try wszst check TRACK.szs and read the output. -- Wiimm (talk) 22:18, 1 December 2014 (UTC)
  Thanks.  --Yoshinator (talk) 02:30, 2 December 2014 (UTC)

User Page

Your links to your CT collections are switched around. Your "Archive" is the one with all working tracks, while your other one is contained with ones you created/modified. --Michael (talk) 17:58, 6 December 2014 (UTC)

The user page is correct -- irritated .. -- Wiimm (talk) 23:58, 6 December 2014 (UTC)
Good to known, that we are all humans ;) -- Wiimm (talk) 20:42, 7 December 2014 (UTC)

Music and Track Slots

I have been looking at this page for help figuring out what music slot I want my track on. However, I want to use certain songs that are not on this list, and they include Galaxy Colosseum and the Ending Demo (for the track SADX Twinkle Circuit of course). I was wondering if you knew what those values are. I was assuming they would be GC and ED but I'm not sure. - Thank you in advance for reading this. Huili (talk) 18:51, 19 December 2014 (UTC)

The music slot of Galaxy Colosseum is 0xC9.
--maczkopeti (talk) 18:59, 19 December 2014 (UTC)
Thank you Maczkopeti, but that is not the answer I want to be honest. Allow me to rephrase it this way: I know that if I put LC down, that would mean I'm putting Luigi Circuit on any track/slot combination. I want to know what that is for Galaxy Colosseum and Ending Demo. -- Huili
I know only the values of the table (indeed, I know nothing except the lookup-place) -- Wiimm (talk) 21:33, 19 December 2014 (UTC)
Sorry for the inconvenice, I just realized I said value when I meant name, but it doesn't matter now I suppose. - Thanks for the response though, I appreciate it, Huili (talk) 22:21, 19 December 2014 (UTC)

Can't edit ISO

Hello Wiimm, I have a 100% workinking iso. BUT when i try to use it in wiiscrubber it says all partitions are invalid. Your great with isos. Help? [User:Jax53000VR]

Since 2010 I use only my WIT to modify ISO images. So I can't help you with wiiscrubber.

Media Wiki Template "Extract-Server"

Hi, Wiimm. I template in MKW Hack Pack Wiki: want to use the Extract-Server. However, when you save a template bug would occur as image. Do you need such as another template? or CSS? Plugins? http://puu.sh/g23PZ/0da8449c22.png --AC (talk) 09:04, 18 February 2015 (UTC)

It needs the string+parser functions. See the wiki version page. -- Wiimm (talk) 22:10, 20 February 2015 (UTC)


Yes I need help exending the code so my distribution has 16 cups. Can you do it for me cause I got no idea how to use wszst -- Jax53000VR (talk) 02:21, 4 March 2015 (UTC)Jax53000VR

Track Facepoints

Hi Wiimm, How do I know all facepoints of a track? --Super-Mario68 (talk) 23:47, 27 March 2015 (UTC)

Adding Accounts from an Existing Account

I was wondering how a new account was able to do that too. I looked around a bit and found this on special pages section: Special:UserLogin/signup. This needs to be disabled for normal users. --Jefe (talk) 19:11, 7 April 2015 (UTC)

Thanx, I have deactivated the page now. -- Wiimm (talk) 20:00, 7 April 2015 (UTC)
You just disabled logging in. I tried to log in with my other computer, but it said I was not allowed to log in (invalid special page). I had to switch to this computer, where I marked always log in. I bet if I logout here now, I can't get back on. You should undo that.
--Buschkling (talk) 10:41, 8 April 2015 (UTC)
Reset to previous state. Perhaps its not so bad, that one user can add another one. But we should watch this kind of account creation.
Wiimm (talk) 11:19, 8 April 2015 (UTC)

Can you edit that page to add a warning about creating multiple accounts? --Jefe (talk) 06:47, 9 April 2015 (UTC)

First I will try to disable the page after an update. I have found hints about the right "CREATE2", but I have not found it at the current config files.

noticed now -- Wiimm (talk) 19:26, 29 April 2015 (UTC)


Your CT-CODE page says that the music slot for Koopa Cape is 167/0xa7. It's actually 133/0x85.
--maczkopeti (talk) 21:30, 3 May 2015 (UTC)

Only Docu was wrong, tools use the correct value 0x85. Thanx -- Wiimm (talk) 22:40, 4 May 2015 (UTC)

Bug track

I'm working on a update of SNES Bowser Castle 1 and there is a bug I have never seen. Sometimes I can drive through some item boxes and sometimes I can't. I can also drive through other items like cpus, dussonc, red shells, green shells, bananas and F.I.B. The difference between the versions are that I have adjust the Y-value (from around 4000 to 5000) and made a new course.kcl and course_model.brres and adjusted the Y-values in the KMP. I think something has happened in the kmp. What should I do? Can I read about this somewhere?
Wexosmk (talk) 14:59, 3 June 2015 (UTC)

Only some guesses:
  • What are the settings for special items (players and compis)? Set them to 0.
  • Adjusting the height may change the position of a hidden item box (and other objects) to a reachable place.
Wiimm (talk) 11:59, 4 June 2015 (UTC)
I have no special items (settings are 0) and the height is set to 5300 which is the right y-posision. I think I'm going to make a completly new KMP File. That will take time but I'm not going to solve this.
Wexosmk (talk) 18:18, 4 June 2015 (UTC)
When I made a new file the same thing happened again but I have found an error. It's the f_itembox that causes all that, I have tested. I load the track over Grumble Volcano. f_itembox settings are:
1: A
2: 0
3: 0
4: 1
5: 6 or 0, depends on delay.
6: 0

The route settings Smooth and Cyclic are set to 0. Route settings are exactly like in bc3, the itemboxes that goes up and down in the ramp section. I don't see a problem, do you?
Wexosmk (talk) 17:54, 5 June 2015 (UTC)
I can't see a problem. How long is the route (in points)? The start point (setting #5) must be smaller than the number of points.
-- Wiimm (talk) 22:25, 5 June 2015 (UTC)
The routes has 12 (0-B) points each. And I don't think it's a problem on the slot because I have tested it on N64 Bowser's Castle too.
Wexosmk (talk) 08:18, 6 June 2015 (UTC)


In the Common.css, you should make the following changes:

  • Remove the width, color, padding and margin from .textbox.nobox, as they're already part of .textbox.
  • Set the margin for .textbox to 1em 0. It gives a better spacing.
  • Set the margin for .multi-col to -1em 0. It fixes the spacing on the main page.

--maczkopeti (talk) 19:14, 13 June 2015 (UTC)

First, the common.css is generated by script. I declare the colors and names of the schemes by a table. So the attributes of nobox don't bother. And I don't remember, if there are important for other combinations.
I don't think, that your margins are really better. Continues drift away. However, I can reduce the multi col top margin to 0em, but it bad if used in other contexts.
-- Wiimm (talk) 06:48, 14 June 2015 (UTC)
The margin settings i gave are the same as the ones used in wikitables. Compare the current settings with my settings.
As for .multi-col, I found the solution by adding a margin modifier to the template.
--maczkopeti (talk) 10:50, 14 June 2015 (UTC)

I made new settings for multi column: Show text

It removes all of the unnecessary settings and fixes the padding on the columns (currently, they have an unneeded 1px padding).
--maczkopeti (talk) 22:52, 21 June 2015 (UTC)

A general note:
At the moment I'm working very hard to improve Wiimmfi and mkw-ana. So I reduced my wiki administration to nearly null. css and also the external translation script is on my todo list.
-- Wiimm (talk) 09:44, 22 June 2015 (UTC)

KCL Index + Lower walls

What is a KCL index? Don't know what to put at settings 1 in KMP on pochaYogan? I have two different Y-position, 0 and 12114,97. If I have two pochaYogan object, then only one works.

Also: How do I lower walls in ? I have looked here but how do I create the text file lower-walls.txt?
Wexosmk (talk) 16:24, 19 June 2015 (UTC)

About "KCL index": I don't understand what you mean.
You can create a text file using any text editor and copy+paste, or you simply use the file of the distribution found in subdirectory ./scprits/kcl/
-- Wiimm (talk) 17:29, 19 June 2015 (UTC)
The KCL index is the ID of the respawn point -- Leseratte (talk) 19:04, 19 June 2015 (UTC)
Where should I put the file. I have it in Program Files(x64)\Wiimm\SZS where I have all the program files and it can't find the file. Have I even installed it correctly?
Wexosmk (talk) 10:12, 22 June 2015 (UTC)

Installation Problem


This pops up after running windows-install.exe. I even ran sendto-install.bat which also gave the same error. I also tried moving the installation setup to a different folder, and deleted my existing version which, once again gave the same error. Failed with SZS 1.40a r6162. --Michael (talk) 17:55, 19 July 2015 (UTC)

Since some Cygwin releases I'm in war with Cygwin. My patcher didn't work because files becomes unreadable (can't be opened by any program) after using bash and some commands. So the only help I can give:
  • Goto C:/programs/wiimm/<tool>
  • Remove all files
  • Copy all files from the installation directory to here.

-- Wiimm (talk) 10:56, 21 July 2015 (UTC)

This should be a warning in advance for these versions until you can get the issue solved. --Michael (talk) 03:56, 27 July 2015 (UTC)

Lap count modifier

Why don't you use the lap count modifier code for your distributions? It is available in the CTT Pack. You could have proper 7 laps for GCN Baby Park without the checkpoint workaround.
--maczkopeti (talk) 22:16, 11 August 2015 (UTC)

Simple reason: No time. My to-do lists for mkw-ana and Wiimmfi are really full. So I decided to only exchange tracks for the mkw-fun series and sometimes to modify a tracks. And all CTGP stuff is delayed.
About 3x3 instead of 7: It's very easy to change it to 3x3. And in out tournaments we like it.
-- Wiimm (talk) 22:36, 11 August 2015 (UTC)
The Problem is that you can't insert the max lap count modifier in a iso. The users have to add the codes manually what means that some people play with 3 laps (they not activated the max lap count modiifer) or 7 laps (they ::activated them) The could also simple add other cheats to the cheat file. The cheat protection would be then also gone, because the unedited main.dol blocks the max lap count modifier cheat.
Wiimm need to insert the code into the CTGP_CODe, but like he said he haven't enough time + chadderz anounnched it but he also not have time.

Wikitables (if that's what you meant by "lists") have never worked inside templates because "|" and "=" are mistaken for template parameters. However, there is a workaroud to use "{{!}}" and "{{=}}" respectively.
--maczkopeti (talk) 18:24, 16 August 2015 (UTC)

I tried a simple list with "*" → fail. Then I used HTML tags for a list → fail
-- Wiimm (talk) 18:28, 16 August 2015 (UTC)
You mean like this?
  • this
  • that
It works for me.
--maczkopeti (talk) 18:32, 16 August 2015 (UTC)
I believed there is no "!" and no "=". I have overseen the equal sign in the link. Thanx for discussion that opened my eyes. Ans the {{=}} works perfect in links too.

Undiscovered Offlimit

Can you please restore the page for Undiscovered Offlimit? It was deleted because of author request. However, author's permission is not needed to create a Wiiki page, especially when the track is already in an open distribution (Wine's CT Pack).

Done! It's also included in my MKW-Fun. -- Wiimm (talk) 20:35, 15 December 2015 (UTC)

Lower Walls

Sucht93a said that he asked you about lowering walls in track. I couldn't lower the in 3DS Cheep Cheep Lagoon since some walls got buggy when I did that. What do I need to change in lower-walls.txt?
Wexos (talk) 15:18, 17 December 2015 (UTC)

He told me, that you have especially problems with non vertical walls. You can edit the script at 2 places to filter A) only some kind of walls and B) only with almost vertical walls:
# Setup
@def start	= mSec()	# start time, for the status line
@def mod_count	= 0		# modification counter

# Get the value for lowering the walls.
# If 'lower' is defined as number by option --const, use it.
# Otherwise use the default of 30.
@def lower = isNumeric(lower) ? lower : 30

# Define a function to test the KCL flag for walls
@function isWall # flag
    @pdef t = $1 & 0x1f
# A1) remove unwanted wall types
#   @return t == 0x0c || t == 0x0d || t == 0x0f || t == 0x14 || t == 0x1e || t == 0x1f
# A2) or replace KCL types by complete types
    @return $1 == 0x0c12 || $1 == 0x0d14  # <<<<< EDIT HERE

# Main loop: Iterate through all triangles
@for t=0;tri$n()-1
    @if isWall(tri$flag(t))
    	@def norm = tri$normal(t,0) #  get the first normal
# B) replace the value to filter vertical walls
#    	@if abs(norm.y) < 0.707 # 45 degree   <<<<< old
    	@if abs(norm.y) < sin(10) # 10 degree <<<<< new
	    # Is it a wall? If yes, lower the wall & increment counter
	    @def status = tri$shift(t,-vy(lower))
	    @def mod_count = mod_count+1

# Print a little status line
@echo "  - " mod_count " of " tri$n() " triangles lowered by " lower
	> " in " (mSec()-start) " msec."
-- Wiimm (talk) 16:57, 17 December 2015 (UTC)
Thanks, that works. Could I use any value I want at B)?
Wexos (talk) 13:40, 18 December 2015 (UTC)
Yes! And If you understand scripting you can do much more. -- Wiimm (talk) 14:32, 18 December 2015 (UTC)
