Hello everyone, I'm DryBowser, better known as Man-O-Wii, an American who loves Wii Modding! If you want to update any of my creations, check the "My Creations" section. If you would like to collaborate on a track, be sure to let me know, although I have a lot of current projects and I may not be able to collab. I also strongly suggest getting to know me before you ask to collab, because I generally only collaborate with people I can trust.
As stated before my current name is Man-O-Wii, however, I have to wait until my account is old enough for the name change to be approved. The name Man-O-Wii is derived from Man-O'-War, a venomous marine hydrozoan often mistaken for a type of jellyfish.
Believe it or not, even though I play MKWii more than any other wii game, the Super Mario Galaxy series will always be my favorite games.
Besides Mario Kart Wii, I'm also working on a NSMBW mod that will replace (hopefully) all of the levels. I can't say for sure though, because i've only got two levels done. The hack will be very low effort, as the levels are meant to look bad. The idea came to me while watching Mayro's NSMBW-2, when she kept talking about "bad-tiling". So, naturally, I had the thought; "I bet I can fuck up a level worse than that." Thus, the hack was born.
My start on the Wiiki wasn't great. I did some My Stuff distributions. I now focus on custom tracks and minor track edits, with the occasional texture hack, character hack, and distribution (the distributions are now through Riivolution with Custom BMGs).
My favourite thing i've made on the Wiiki is my custom track 39 Days, because it was my first working custom track and features the theme of Survivor, my favourite television show.
I’m working on a texture hack distribution that will feature 32 texture hacks as well as character textures made entirely by myself.
Be sure to check out my Youtube channel. I have a lot of Mario Kart Wii stuff on there, including showcases. However, I also do some videos on SMG modding. I have a pretty interesting series on there called "Exploring Super Mario Galaxy," where I use flying hacks to explore every galaxy in SMG. I also plan to do a texture hack/character texture tutorial at some point.

Want to update something i've made (no distributions, sorry), look no further. Use this table as a reference on what can be updated and what can't.
This describes the legend for the “Can you update it?” section of each table.
|Yes||You can update the mod without asking me for permission.|
|Requires Permission||You can update the mod, but you have to ask for my permission to update it first.|
|No||You cannot update the mod and I will not give permission to update it. I don't want unofficial updates either, however, if you really want to update it at least title it an -alt version of the current version and leave it out of the Misc-Info box. This cannot be enforced obviously but if possible I ask that you oblige by these recommendations.|
|Name||Version||Update Planned?||Can you update it?||Notes|
|39 Days||RC1||Yes||No||This is a track that I want to be completely made by me for personal reasons. Sorry, I'm not allowing any updates on this one. And if absolutely possible I don't want any unofficial updates either due to personal reasons I do not wish to disclose. I do plan on doing a full remake at some point, perhaps with a few others.|

Me and a few others have decided to start a brand new project known as the SMG Custom Tracks Project! This project will create custom tracks based around Galaxies from Super Mario Galaxy 1 and 2. If you would like to help, hop on the discord server featured on the page, and let us know that you want to help out with creating the tracks!
I am currently working on a custom track distribution known as the Community Controlled Collection. It is a distribution that relies entirely on user submissions! If you would like to submit a track, check out the track wishlist which is linked there.
In addition, I may need help with the pack, so if you'd like to help with either testing or putting together the track, let me know on the discord server!
I have some plans for future things I'd like to do.
Old Track Remakes - Let’s be honest. There’s countless old tracks out there that need a remake. I have already done four of these and I plan to do more.
Retro Game Track - A currently unnamed custom track that will take you through numerous retro games. These games will be Minesweeper, Snake, New Rally X, Dig Dug, Xevious, and finally Pac-Man.
3D Warehouse Releases - Upon looking in the 3D Warehouse in Sketchup, I discovered a few unfinished custom track models. I’m hoping to complete some of them.
Arcade Ports - If I can get my hands on some models I’d like to port some Arcade Tracks into MKWii.
Super Mario Galaxy Ports - As a huge SMG fan, I love combining MKWii and SMG. Though I’ve already ported a few tracks, why stop there?
Lmao Pack - Placeholder name. You will only get the meaning behind the name if you are active on the Custom Track Jams discord server. A pack that will feature my best CTs. My hope is to use this as a test of LE-CODE. I am waiting on creating this one until I have enough worthy CTs, because let’s be honest, a lot of my CTs aren’t that great lmao.
39 Days Remake - A remake of my CT, 39 Days. I am waiting until I learn blender to make this. It may be a collab with someone else, not really sure.
In addition, there are a few things that are more than just an idea that I have already begun working on
Man-O-Wii's Custom Pack - A personal custom track pack that will use CT-CODE. It is not far into development as the tracklist is not complete yet. I have some tracks in mind though. I’ll most likely include all of my playable tracks along with all released tracks from the Custom Track Jam. I do have the Wiimmfi region selected though, #6008. Though it is a personal pack, it will be released publicly.
Slot Car Rivals! Tutorial Track - A port of the tutorial track from Slot Car Rivals!.
Glitterland Pass - Also known as James Charles Circuit. This track will feature sparkles all around.
Rainbow Funky Texture - A Funky Kong on Flame Runner texture that is actually complete. Not sure when I’m going to release it though.
Secret Remake - A remake of a certain track. This remake will be a collaboration with Toxic Prime.
