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?

Thanks!

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)

Wiimmfi

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)

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)

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)

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)

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.

CT-CODE

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.

Common.css

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.

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 donÄt 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)

A ban problem.

Hey Wiimm. I have a small problem about playing online on Mario Kart Wii (CTGP). And for you to fully understand this problem, I guess I have to start from the beginning.

So, a few years ago I was using cheat codes online on Mario Kart Wii (not anymore though, I swear about that) and came across a VR/BR Modifier code. As the lazy guy I am, I tried to use it to get 9999 VR online (it didn't work, but that's just because I suck at stuff like that, so there's no point in talking about it). Then I also thought, "Hmm, I don't really like Battle mode so much so I think I'll just set my BR to 0, as a joke.", and so I did.

And then something happened.

The BR got stuck at 0 even after I turned off the cheat codes. The VR was totally fine, it reset itself, but the BR was saved permanently. At the time it wasn't a big deal for me because I didn't care about it, but this was all before Wiimmfi existed. So, cut to the release of CTGP-R and, later, Wiimmfi. When I first got Wiimmfi everything was working as it should have, I could race online and nothing unusual would happen, it never registered that I had 0 BR. Conutdown mode is released, BR and Battle mode gets thrown out the window, but everything's still working normally.

Up until today.

Today when I tried to get online it gave me the error code 23917 (= Wiimmfi access denied), so I went to check out what was wrong. I saw that I had been banned for, quote: "Invalid VR or BR (6701,0)." and "Kicked because of VR/BR cheats. Ban for 30 minutes.". Now, suddenly, my 0 BR has been noticed and as soon as I try to search for players online it bans me, for something I CAN'T REMOVE. Even though Countdown mode has taken the place of Battle, Wiimmfi still recognizes the BR and kicks me out.

Just to be clear, i'm not mad at you or anyone else, I just want to know why this happened NOW and if it can be fixed without me needing to make a new license, or something like that.

Thank you for your time. /Darkie

You can just use a Modifier cheat code again to set your BR back to a "normal" value. -- Leseratte (talk) 20:35, 24 June 2015 (UTC)
There's no way for me to use cheats while being able to connect to the servers at the same time. I just tried with no luck. -- Darkie 20:49, 24 June 2015 (UTC)
Well, it seems I fixed the problem by searching around a bit. Though it's still strange that it didn't notice I had 0 BR until now... -- Darkie 13:00, 25 June 2015 (UTC)

Why am I banned?!

Wiimm this 4tbMyles8110mkwii telling you that you're permenantly banning me from Wiimmfi (23915:Banned Forever:Abusive use of Console Identifiers) why the heck am I banned I don't even know what a console identifier or maybe it has something to do with installing iOS 249 and 250.Please give a respectful response and please unban me. MKWII Liscence:4tbMyles. 4tbMyles8110mkwii (talk) 1:20 4 July 2015 (UTC)

23915 means you are using a MAC changer or a modified ISO including a MAC changer. If you enabled any kind of cheats, disable them. If you downloaded an ISO from the internet, remove it and create your own one (the ones on the internet sometimes contain mac changers). Then wait 15 days without using any kind of MAC changer and you are unbanned -- Leseratte (talk) 07:17, 4 July 2015 (UTC)
"23915:Banned Forever:" is not a Wiimmfi error, but polemic. -- Wiimm (talk) 14:01, 4 July 2015 (UTC)

I Installed iOS 249 and 250 and was fine. Maybe You formatted Your wii? Jax53000VR (talk) 00:07, 11 July 2015 (UTC)Jax53000VR
