Delete an unneeded page

Can one of the moderators please delete the following page? Its content was moved to another one so that page is empty and useless now. MKWii_Network_Protocol/EVENTDATA Leseratte (talk) 07:08, 13 June 2015 (UTC)

Name Change

Do You have to be a Member for a year to get a New Name Jax53000VR (talk) 21:50, 1 August 2015 (UTC)

Yes, it is written right here.

Broken download links

I have recently been reuploading broken download links as some of you may have noticed via the recent changes page. At the same time, I also compiled a big list of pages where the download link was down and I didn't happen to have a file on hand. I just wanted to put that list here for all to see. For the benefit of the wiiki, I will put it in a spoiler.

Also, I am in no way asking that every single link here should be deleted, I understand that some of these links are historically significant in the Custom Mario Kart community. I'm also not asking to be a moderator for this, I'm just, as they say, raising awareness. If anyone has the files to these downloads please put them in their respective pages too.

No download link


Huili (talk) 23:02, 28 August 2015 (UTC)

I already made a hidden category named Category:Misc-Info/No Download, though it doesn't show texture hacks currently; I need to edit that.
Also, don't forget to remove broken links and add Category:Broken Downloads to the page.

Adding a Custom Track Distribution to Main Page?

Hello I have just released a new custom track pack distribution: MiniGeek2000's Custom Track Pack. How is it added to the Main Page list of new releases? Is it controlled by the moderators? --MiniGeek2000 (talk) 17:56, 6 May 2016 (UTC)

Add it to News 2016 -- Wiimm (talk) 18:19, 6 May 2016 (UTC)

Broken Wiiki Themes

User:ALPHAMARIOX tried to change his theme to "Nostalgia", but now he gets HTTP Error 500 upon trying to load any page. I did a small test and it appears the "Classic" theme is also not working.
He needs to be reverted to a working theme. Perhaps MonoBook?
Also, can these broken themes either be removed from the list or be fixed? It's too easy to permanently lock yourself out of the Wiiki by changing your account to a broken theme.
Thanks, --Guilmon35249vr (talk) 21:32, 8 August 2016 (UTC)

Send him this link. It will override the broken theme with the MonoBook theme so he can reset the theme setting.
--maczkopeti (talk) 22:03, 8 August 2016 (UTC)
Awesome. It seems to work. Thanks! --Guilmon35249vr (talk) 23:11, 8 August 2016 (UTC)

Epilepsy

Can anyone (native english speaker) create a good Epilepsy warning, that can be included into ct pages. Color Dimension is e.g. a track, that shall include this warning.

-- Wiimm (talk) 16:02, 23 December 2016 (UTC)

Isn't there already a template for it? → {{seizure warning}} —Atlas (talk) 16:13, 23 December 2016 (UTC)
In deed ;) I think, it needs some reformatting. -- Wiimm (talk) 16:25, 23 December 2016 (UTC)

Mario Kart 7 Wiki?

Is it possible for us to make an MK7 wiki, like the MK8 and MKWii CT wikis? Just an idea, since CTGP-7 is officially a thing and the modding scene for Mario Kart 7 (and the 3DS in general) is starting to take off. Aplumafreak500 (talk) 12:29, 19 April 2017 (UTC)

There is, at mk7.tock.eu. 3hunts (talk) 19:41, 19 March 2020 (UTC)

Shouldn't the Mario Kart 7 Wiki be listed in the toolbar on the left, since it from Tock? MarkAlbertsma03 (talk) 12:37, 13 August 2020 (UTC)

Added. --KantoEpic (talk) 18:21, 13 August 2020 (UTC)

A Useless Page

Hello I would like a moderator to delete a useless page please. File:Coin Cup.png --MiniGeek2000 (talk) 09:34, 30 May 2017 (UTC)

Done.
--Wexos (Talk | Contribs) 09:58, 30 May 2017 (UTC)

Deleting another useless page

Hello,

I would like an administrator to delete File:Super Mario Kart Wii Coin Cup.png --MiniGeek2000 (talk) 08:34, 31 May 2017 (UTC)

Standard way is to add »[[category:delete]]« at the end of the article or image description. All so marked pages are here visible: Category:Delete.
-- Wiimm (talk) 10:12, 31 May 2017 (UTC)
The file is in use. See Special:WhatLinksHere/File:Super Mario Kart Wii Coin Cup.png.
--Wexos (Talk | Contribs) 10:17, 31 May 2017 (UTC)
And here you see unused files: Special:UnusedFiles -- Wiimm (talk) 10:56, 31 May 2017 (UTC)
I have unlinked File:Super Mario Kart Wii Coin Cup.png --MiniGeek2000 (talk) 11:43, 31 May 2017 (UTC)

Lost downloads

All of the downloads for my tracks seem to have vanished, and unfortunately I no longer have any of the original files. If anyone has backups, preferably WBZ, please add them back. --SuperMario64DS (talk) 06:47, 19 October 2017 (UTC)

As you can see on the "recent changes" page, I'm already going through the track list, updating all tracks (in alphabetical order) with new download links if the old one is down, but that will take a long while. If you want, you can check Wiimms track archive (http://wiimm.de/r/d/mkw-track-archive) if your tracks are there, and if so, add that link to the track page(s). -- Leseratte (talk) 06:49, 19 October 2017 (UTC)
I wrote the above message blissfully unaware of what had occurred... I lost the files awhile ago and I knew someone created MEGA mirrors, and today I wished to acquire a few of them. Thank you for that resource. --SuperMario64DS (talk) 06:52, 19 October 2017 (UTC)

A "Ghost" Problem

I don't know if this is the place to write this, but I have this problem: I have a SNES Rainbow Road 4 ghost (from CTGP) in my SD Card. The problem is that I don't know how to put it in the MKWII ISO to make the game play it (Dolphin Emulator). What do I do? Rubén (talk) 16:14, 3 December 2017 (UTC)

Changing name of a page

Can someone change the name of the page Super Mario Kart Wii to Super Mario Kart Wii (MiniGeek2000) --MiniGeek2000 (talk) 13:58, 11 February 2018 (UTC)

You can change it from the "move" tab at the top of the page. --Caron (talk) 15:24, 11 February 2018 (UTC)
Move it, then edit all pages that link to it by checking this.
--Wexos (Talk | Contribs) – CT/MK8 Wiki Admin 08:11, 12 February 2018 (UTC)

Mixed up talk page

The talk page on Talk:DS Shroom Ridge contains a small section relevant to the article that used to be on that page, DS Shroom Ridge (SuperMario64DS). However, the first entry on the subsection is dually relevant - it specifies my version, but in relation to its time on the article titled DS Shroom Ridge. So I have two questions - first, should this small section of the talk page be moved to Talk: DS Shroom Ridge (SuperMario64DS), and second, if so, should the first part relevant to the article title stay behind? --SuperMario64DS (talk) 06:46, 7 August 2018 (UTC)

KMP Cloud Download Broken

Hi there. I recently tried to download KMP_Cloud. The link is now unusable due to the owner's mediafire account being suspended. I cannot find a mirror. I hope I have posted this correctly! --User:Teramiiko (talk) 11:35, 12 September 2018 (UTC)

Porting TF2 Files into Mario Kart Wii?

I apologize if this isn't the right place to ask this :/ I am new to making custom tracks, and I was thinking of turning the track used in the Duck Collectors minigame in TF2 into a map. However, IDK how I would port it from the source files inside my TF2 folder into the game itself. Is it even possible? Also, how do I go about porting the textures? --Unsigned comment by 404 (talk).

A File that I am need to replace

Hello,

I need someone to delete this file: File:Boo.png

I wanted to swap the same file but with a different name but I can't. I tried what it said me to do.

It would be very much appreciated. --MiniGeek2000 (talk) 17:10, 26 June 2019 (UTC)

What exactly are you trying to do? If you want to upload a new version of that file, click "Upload a new version of this file". If you want to rename it, click "Move". What's the problem? -- Leseratte (talk) 17:12, 26 June 2019 (UTC)

I was trying to upload a file with a different name which looks exactly the same as the Boo.png with a different name. The website detected it to be identical to said file and I was trying to find a way to delete it.--MiniGeek2000 (talk) 17:23, 26 June 2019 (UTC)

Well then why do you need to reupload it if it is identical? Why not use the existing name, or move the file to its new name? -- Leseratte (talk) 17:25, 26 June 2019 (UTC)
I wanted to make it a name for a cup but someone else has used a file with the name I was going to intentionally use so I named it Boo.png then I tried naming it with the name of my custom track pack with the name MiniGeek2000's Custom Track Pack Boo Cup.png because I wanted to have the name Boo Cup displayed on my custom track distribution without having to deal with any file conflicts. I was trying to rename the file but I don't know how to do it.--MiniGeek2000 (talk) 17:50, 26 June 2019 (UTC)
I moved the file name to its new name like you told me. This move to a new name feature I didn't see at first but thanks for helping me.--MiniGeek2000 (talk) 18:01, 26 June 2019 (UTC)

2 Questions about Texture Hack Distribution

Hello, I wanted to release my own Texture Hack Distribution but I have two concerns about it.

1. Can I release the texture pack with no announcement whatsoever?

2. Do I need to ask permission from the creator of the texture hack of that track?

Thanks in advance! and sorry If I posted this in the wrong place to ask. --SnorgUp (talk) 09:46, 23 February 2020 (UTC)

For the first one, I don't know, I suggest doing the thing anyways.
For the second one, that depends of the creator of the texture hack. Most are fine with just crediting but few may want permission. --FancyDoesCustomTracks (talk) 14:13, 23 February 2020 (UTC)
The Wiki rules explicitly allow you to include content from the Wiki in your distribution (as long as that's released on the Wiki, too), so there is no need to ask creators for permission as long as the tracks you are using are available on this wiki. -- Leseratte (talk) 16:02, 23 February 2020 (UTC)

Help with Brawlbox Character Texture Import

I am making a custom character model by importing a DAE into Brawlbox. The geometry is fine, but I can't get the textures to work. There are multiple materials in the DAE, and in Brawlbox they are all there, but only one of the materials will show. Is there anyone who is willing to help me out on this? --ecumber (talk) 03:04, 16 May 2020 (UTC)

I remember dealing with a similar issue with the lack of materials, but this was a while ago and I do not remember how I fixed it.
Also, I think the talk page for BrawlBox would be more appropriate than here. Just to let you know. --KantoEpic (talk) 07:29, 16 May 2020 (UTC)
Alright, should I remove this and put it in the BrawlBox talk page? Ecumber (talk) 04:02, 17 May 2020 (UTC)
I would not worry about that. Just leave it. --KantoEpic (talk) 04:58, 17 May 2020 (UTC)

Custom Music Distribution Page?

Since more and more people are making music distributions, shouldn't there be a wiiki page for it? 3hunts (talk) 19:34, 3 June 2020 (UTC)

Cedric made one yesterday. You can find it here. It needs a lot of work, considering there is a bunch of custom music distributions that never made it on this website. --KantoEpic (talk) 22:26, 3 June 2020 (UTC)
Shouldn't it be on the front page then? 3hunts (talk) 01:09, 4 June 2020 (UTC)
I will try to get input from the other staff members. --KantoEpic (talk) 01:35, 4 June 2020 (UTC)

I made a music pack myself and I would like to make it public. Is it ok for me to add my pack on that page myself or do you have to fill in an application or something? MarkAlbertsma03 (talk) 13:33, 7 June 2020 (UTC)

Feel free to release it, Mark. Just follow this on the bottom of the main page and make the article for your distribution. --KantoEpic (talk) 02:41, 8 June 2020 (UTC)
Alright thanks I'll get to it. :) MarkAlbertsma03 (talk) 06:27, 8 June 2020 (UTC)

CTGP-R Bug Tracker

Is there a CTGP-R bug tracker? MarkAlbertsma03 (talk) 02:46, 9 June 2020 (UTC)

Not that I know of. This fits better under the CTGP Revolution talk page, just for future reference. --KantoEpic (talk) 05:31, 10 June 2020 (UTC)

CTGP Bronze, silver and gold stars

What are the conditions to get these? MarkAlbertsma03 (talk) 05:23, 10 June 2020 (UTC)

Like the post I made above, this discussion fits better under the talk page for CTGP Revolution. Regardless, I might as well tell you about those stars. Bronze means you have not beaten the easy staff ghost (this one I am not too sure of myself considering I have never gotten this kind of star when I used to set times on a bunch of tracks, but it would probably make the most sense), silver means you beat the easy staff ghost, but not the expert staff ghost, and gold means you beat the expert staff ghost. --KantoEpic (talk) 05:31, 10 June 2020 (UTC)
Thanks for answering! Next time ill head to the CTGP talk page. MarkAlbertsma03 (talk) 07:12, 10 June 2020 (UTC)

Track Directory

Add the "Mario Kart Tour Custom tracks" as an option to here. GuidedByVoices (talk) 18:58, 19 June 2020 (UTC)

The page has been made. I can find it, but why is it not on the main one? MarkAlbertsma03 (talk) 06:10, 25 July 2020 (UTC)

Double naming of pages

Hi, I just made a Gold Mario texture with an additional .brsar-file so Gold Mario actually sounds like him. There are already two versions and I now don't know what to name the page because the correct name for this texture hack is already taken. Can anybody help me with that? MarkAlbertsma03 (talk) 06:55, 19 July 2020 (UTC)

Seems like Cederic did not rename the page for iSlime's mod. Regardless, your mod would be named "Gold Mario (MarkAlbertsma03)" without the quotation marks. --KantoEpic (talk) 13:32, 19 July 2020 (UTC)

Contradictory rules

Looking at the template, which is above every month's news entry. It's the green attention box. Anyway, the 1st and 3rd rule of Posting rules are contradictory rules, as it is not clear which newsitem goes on top. Do newer entries go on top or older ones? Here's a link --> Template:News Month 08 --Unsigned comment by MarkAlbertsma03 (talk).

The first rule refers to the actual dates; the third rule refers to the news entries. It does not have the best wording, but it is not contradictory. --KantoEpic (talk) 06:05, 14 August 2020 (UTC)

Adding a new page

Should I add a new page about the Wuphax exploit for the wii u? Thanks. Visu33 (talk) 17:44, 28 August 2020 (UTC)

Personally, I do not see the point in making a page for it. --KantoEpic (talk) 04:40, 29 August 2020 (UTC)

Signature Change

Hey there, CM333 here. Was wondering, if I wished to change my signature, would my account have to be a certain age? -CM333 (talk) 16:09, 5 October 2020 (UTC)

You can go to your preferences and add a signature under the section 'Signature'. MarkAlbertsma03 (talk) 18:44, 5 October 2020 (UTC)
Thanks, wanted to know. --Bye from, CM333 (talk) 14:58, 7 October 2020 (UTC)

Just a question

Is there a timeline of the history of the Mario Kart Wii modding community? I want to see that. Elemental (talk) 15:41, 23 November 2020 (UTC)

I mean, you can check all the pages from News 2011 to News 2020. The earlier pages aren't as complete but I don't think there's anything more than that. Trainiax/SwampyGator (talk) 15:43, 23 November 2020 (UTC)
