Private paid pack?

Hi, Where would I be able to buy a copy of your pack? --PokeAcer (talk) 22:03, 15 February 2016 (UTC)

PayPal only. Please check this video's description: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fZxfjaMawAUAtlas (talk) 4:20, 16 February 2016 (UTC)

Publishing updates and alterations on the wiki?

Hi atlas, I made some fixes and changes to 3DS Shy Guy Basar 1.8 and 3DS Daisy Hills 1.7b for the next version of Wiimms Mario Kart Fun. Is it okay for you if i publish those versions on the wiki.
On 3DS Shy Guy Basar i added a lot of missing item routes, improved enemy routes, added more respawns.
On 3DS Daisy Hills i added missing item routes. I also altered the track concept and openend the way over the houses on the left side as a shortcut. So this one is not only a fix but an alteration of your original concept. I would mark it as such.
Cheers, suchti --Sucht93a (talk) 16:06, 1 June 2016 (UTC)

Sure, feel free to change it. —Atlas (talk) 22:11, 1 June 2016 (UTC)
Have you seen my PM at wii-homebrew.com? -- Wiimm (talk) 07:01, 12 October 2016 (UTC)
Sorry, I was pretty inactive there. Now I see. —Atlas (talk) 10:22, 12 October 2016 (UTC)

DL

Instead removing invalid DL, you can replace them by http://wiimm.de/r/d/mkw-track-archive (tracks only).

-- Wiimm (talk) 09:42, 22 June 2016 (UTC)

Some of them aren't there, but I'll look there next time before removing, thanks. —Atlas (talk) 11:41, 22 June 2016 (UTC)

Editing your Tracks

Hi Atlas, I fixed a small KCL bug in 3DS Daisy Hills (Atlas) v1.7d (new version 1.7e). Sniki and I scaled PMWR Cloud Garden to 120% and fixed item routes (new version 1.07). Both edits are for my coming MKW-Fun distrib. Is it ok to release it here?

-- Wiimm (talk) 08:27, 25 June 2016 (UTC)

Sure, and thanks for your contributions. —Atlas (talk) 12:13, 25 June 2016 (UTC)

User Page

You forgot the KMG file format (only file is minigame.kmg in Common.szs) :P -Dswii3ds (talk) 08:26, 8 September 2016 (UTC)

No, it's there. —Atlas (talk) 09:34, 8 September 2016 (UTC)
Well, do you know anything about those ? I'm curious... -Dswii3ds (talk) 13:00, 8 September 2016 (UTC)
KMG is unused. Mario Kart Wii has lot of unused entries related to "Minigame", including UI elements, and an extra button for 1P Menu for an unused section named "Minigame", that seems to be like a leftover from MKDS. It would be nice if someone manages to implement it back with the few resources that are left in the data. —Atlas (talk) 14:30, 8 September 2016 (UTC)
Do you think it could be possible to use competitions as actual missions ? It would obviously require many more edits to code and such, but Mr Bean could easily do that imo -Dswii3ds (talk) 15:07, 8 September 2016 (UTC)

Banning for Usernames

Don't you think it's a bit excessive to ban people with simple commas in their name ? Or even ()&$ ? -Dswii3ds (talk) 14:36, 4 October 2016 (UTC)

That's what the rules said, I discussed it with Maczkopeti before to follow the rules more like Wikipedia does. —Atlas (talk) 19:05, 4 October 2016 (UTC)

Mario Kart 8 Ported Stuff

Sorry if i constantly annoy you, but i'm very impressed by your work recently.

I just noticed you have made tons of ports from Mario Kart 8, mostly Karts and Characters. Could you give them to me or are they private/paid ? If the latter, i'm willing to pay you. I also noticed you made a new UI (item roulette and such) and Items based off MK8. Do you have them too ? I wanted to make my game more similar to MK8 to spice it up and make it less boring.

What sound effects do you think i could import from MK8 ? I don't know any filename. I need the track intro, terrain sounds, character sounds, and the boost sound. Can you help me on these ?

Thanks a lot, i don't have words at the amount of mods you've done for this game. -Dswii3ds (talk) 13:00, 23 October 2016 (UTC)

For this, please contact me via Skype: kyros2110 —Atlas (talk) 13:46, 23 October 2016 (UTC)

Re: Pages with no download link

It wasn't written in the rules so i didn't know. Sorry man ! -Dswii3ds (talk) 12:29, 27 November 2016 (UTC)

Files

Hi, What are the files called that make the numbers from Mario kart wii you know 1st place 2nd place etc. Where is a download to that. I'm the dev of Mario kart 7 wii btw. Can you also compile more Mario kart 8 texture for use in Mario kart 7 wii -Phanegan3

They are TPL files found into Race_*.szs (where * is the letter depending on your game's language). If you want to get an original copy of this file, you can't ask for that here in the Wiiki because unmodified files can't be posted (that's illegal), so you must find it yourself or extract it from your game/ISO. And no, I don't take modding requests for free anymore. —Atlas (talk) 12:46, 28 November 2016 (UTC)

Vehicles you made lack pages

A lot of slots for retro karts have you as the author (specifically Mario Kart 7), but lack a page. Is there a specific reason, or...? ThatPlanet (talk) 18:23, 3 December 2016 (UTC)

Yep, I'm finishing them soon and uploading them all together in a pack. —Atlas (talk) 18:37, 3 December 2016 (UTC)

Custom elettric Propeller Object

Hello. Is a problem for you if use your custom elettric propeller from your Blooper Surfing Safari for a track? —Bulzeeb (talk) 18:34, 05 January 2017 (UTC)

You can use it with no problem. —Atlas (talk) 20:52, 5 January 2017 (UTC)
Thanks :) —Bulzeeb (talk) 19:28, 06 January 2017 (UTC)
Can I use other your custom objects for a custom track? —Bulzeeb (talk) 19:28, 19 April 2017 (UTC)
Yes, you can. Just give credit. -Atlas (talk) 18:38, 19 April 2017 (UTC)
Thank you very much. Are you good to create animated custom objects? —Bulzeeb (talk) 13:30, 20 April 2017 (UTC)

Edit War

Why are you reverting my edits on Darkness Power Plant? You entered a wrong release date. The track was released on the 17th, not the 16th. I should know better because it is my own track. Please stop doing an edit war out of this and leave the release date be. I don't know where you got the info from that it was released on the 16th. The online test took place on the 16th but I've actually set the download up 1 day later.--Buschkling (talk) 17:51, 18 July 2017 (UTC)

No, you should stop the edit war. Any non-registered user and any registered user who didn't change the default timezone, uses the wiki's default time zone, and it shows that it was released on 16:th at 22:12 (when the page was saved). The news uses the wiki's default time zone. That edit included a download link => released. However, in +2 (like Germany has) it would be released on the 17:th.
--Wexos (Talk | Contribs) – CT/MK8 Wiki Admin 18:20, 18 July 2017 (UTC)
The wiki's server is located in germany, so it would use the german time, which is the one I have set it to now. So it was released on the 17th at 0:12 AM.--Buschkling (talk) 19:31, 18 July 2017 (UTC)
You should look here, "Time offset".

PM at Wii-Homebrew.com

Have you noticed my PM at Wii-Homebrew.com -- Wiimm (talk) 12:02, 4 February 2017 (UTC)

Now I did —Atlas (talk) 12:27, 4 February 2017 (UTC)

Pianta

You removed a video of the model. Videos are better than pictures in that case. Why? Because I didn't know how to embed it?

Also, the article says "this char. is not animated". It is animated. I'm kinda too scared to edit that now too because you'll ban me or something. --Unsigned comment by Rhodechill (talk).

First and foremost; Please ensure you sign your responses with 4 tilde (~) marks so that it's more obvious whom said what. Secondly, if it's on a Wiki, users cannot ban for contributing to the wiki, so please do edit to correct issues you may find. PokeAcer (talk) 14:49, 17 July 2017 (UTC)
  • 1. You haven't posted the video link correctly.
  • 2. The video is not focused on the custom character but in an entire Custom Track cup, which makes it so long and unrelated.
  • 3. As PokeAcer said, you cannot get banned for contributing on the wiki. Read the rules and if you follow them, you won't get banned.
Atlas (talk) – CT/MK8 Wiki Admin 19:21, 17 July 2017 (UTC)
Also, I've just checked and no, it's not animated. You might have another version. —Atlas (talk) – CT/MK8 Wiki Admin 19:25, 17 July 2017 (UTC)

Deleted Pages with Downloads

I'm concerned about the pages for CT and Texture Hack Distributions that were released, mainly the outdated ones from 2011-2013, but I'm not sure if they had working download links before they were deleted. Bri (talk) 16:20, 24 July 2017 (UTC)

Any concrete example?
I handle this wiki as a kind of an encyclopedia, that provides information and download links. An download link, that becomes invalid, is not a reason to delete an article. But a never existing download is a reason: No Vaporware!
-- Wiimm (talk) 17:47, 24 July 2017 (UTC)

Question about your Sans mod

Hey, Atlas, mind if I edit the Sans mod over Wario on the Mach Bike? I'll give you credit. Also it's on Gamebanana. --Unsigned comment by TriforceCrimson (talk).

Sure, go ahead. —Atlas (talk) – CT/MK8 Wiki Admin 13:26, 25 July 2017 (UTC)

Delete old account?

Hi I have an old account here named MrBean35000VRJr. Can you please delete it? --TheRealBeanJR (talk) 01:05, 14 August 2017 (UTC)

We can't delete accounts, only ban/rename them. —Atlas (talk) – CT/MK8 Wiki Admin 01:17, 14 August 2017 (UTC)

List of Custom Missions

Could it possibly be a wiki page ? -Dswii3ds (talk) 12:56, 23 August 2017 (UTC)

Probably, but not yet. —Atlas (talk) – CT/MK8 Wiki Admin 14:11, 23 August 2017 (UTC)

Padding

Sorry if i'm annoying you again. Is it possible to add padding with an hex editor between subfiles in an SZS file ? Can i do this with BMG entries too ? -Dswii3ds (talk) 10:10, 3 September 2017 (UTC)

Workarounds:
But I don't see the advantage of padding.
-- Wiimm (talk) 11:07, 3 September 2017 (UTC)
It allows me to make a customizable Common.szs. I take every subfile and for each i use the biggest custom file size as a reference. With the smaller files, i calculate how much padding is needed to reach the reference size. This allows me to calculate exact offsets and file lengths, so i can add them to my Riivolution XML and only replace the correct part of the file with the item i selected. This also could work with character selection (Driver, Award and stuff). And i can edit BMG entries on the fly with the same method, allowing me to have CT customization and the correct track names. -Dswii3ds (talk) 12:10, 3 September 2017 (UTC)
Then extract the szs, enlarge all subfiles by appending NULL bytes and re-create the szs.
I personally prefer: extract, patch and re-create by a batch file.
-- Wiimm (talk) 15:02, 3 September 2017 (UTC)

Bot

I'm seeing that you and Leseratte are currently editing pages to remove dead download links, but isnt there a bot we could use for that? I remember when 2shared had a virus we had a bot that hid those links. So far, MEGA, Sendspace and 2shared links are affected by Nintendo copyright strikes. It'd be much more time consuming to do it for each page manually.--Buschkling (talk) 16:57, 18 October 2017 (UTC)

I'm not actually removing, but replacing the links of my downloads with new ones. A bot for removing the current broken download links would be possible. —Atlas (talk) – CT/MK8 Wiki Admin 16:59, 18 October 2017 (UTC)
For 2shared, Maczkopeti edited the CT template, there was no bot involved. But yeah, a bot would be possible, and better. I think Wiimm would be the one who would create one.
--Wexos (Talk | Contribs) – CT/MK8 Wiki Admin 17:06, 18 October 2017 (UTC)
This could inadvertently delete valid download links for content that somehow didn't get affected (for example Huili's music pack collection). I advise you double-check these. Aplumafreak500 (talk) 19:57, 18 October 2017 (UTC)
I would not remove MEGA links with a bot. Having no download link has no advantage over having a broken download link, a few files are not affected, and it helps to difference between old tracks with no download and relatively new tracks which had one. We need to replace the download links anyways at some point, so no need to do a bot cleanup first in my opinion. -- Leseratte (talk) 20:13, 18 October 2017 (UTC)

Permission for use in a Modpack

Hi Atlas, I love your work and I was wondering if I could use some of your texture hacks/model hacks for a mod pack that I am putting together? The hacks that I am asking about if I could put in are: TF2 Heavy on the Flame Runner, SM64 Metal Mario on MK8 Comet, Ronald McDonald on Spear, and Sledge Bro on Flame Runner. I might put in more of your hacks into the mod pack later on, but I will consult you on those here. --DragonMaster537 (talk) 3:27, 4 March 2018 (CST)

Sure, you can add any of my characters as long as they are all released. —Atlas (talk) – CT/MK8 Wiki Admin 12:10, 5 March 2018 (UTC)

My talk page restriction

Hi Atlas, I'm sorry I wasn't expecting that I couldn't remove moderator messages and I'm sadly having a restriction that I agree, but I'm new and I don't know all here because I made a mistake and didn't read the rules and the "Welcome to mario kart wiki" talk page ! I will remove this of your talk page after getting your answer, don't worry ! --Gold'N Zic 23 (talk) 18:34, 4 August 2018 (UTC)Gold'N Zic 23

I have lowered the restriction time to one week now. Don't delete anything from my talk page.
Atlas (talk) – CT/MK8 Wiki Admin 11:35, 5 August 2018 (UTC)

Excuse me?

I don't know why you removed the SlipperyMac redirect page when I cleared up the whole situation with KantoEpic before I did it. He said it was fine to change all the redirects, and since that's my preferred name, I'd appreciate it if you reverted all changes you made with the SlipperyMac redirect page. I'd also appreciate it if you removed the ToadBrawler redirect page since I wasn't planning on keeping that. Thanks. --SlipperyMac (talk) 12:33, 26 August 2018 (UTC)

Nevermind, didn't see your message on the history of News 2018. Sorry for the misunderstanding. --SlipperyMac (talk) 12:48, 26 August 2018 (UTC)

A few questions

Hi Atlas!! First of all, lemme just say i'm new here, so sorry if i'm not meant to be doing it this way haha (all of my questions are gonna make me look stupid haha sorry :P).

1. How would you add a dl to a pack?

2. Im making a pack with both textures & custom tracks. What distribution page would I put it in?

3. How would you add a pack to the Texture Pack/Custom Track distribution section?

Many Thanks!! Graciie (talk) 11:29, 1 September 2018 (UTC)

  • 1. The download is added into the download section from the table. Follow the Distribution tutorial to use the template.
  • 2. It should go into the Custom Track Distribution page.
  • 3. In that page, you should add your distribution into the table, following the template by any other entry from it. Remember to read the Custom Track Distribution rules.

Uploading Image Error

Hey Atlas, I got this error while trying to upload an image: "File extension ".jpg" does not match the detected MIME type of the file (image/png)." I got the same error after changing the file to .png. what should i do? Graciie (talk) 14:19, 3 September 2018 (UTC)

Nevermind I got it to work haha :) Graciie (talk) 14:38, 3 September 2018 (UTC)

I want to store multiple images into 4 different categories, but I don't know how.

Hi (again), I just want to show multiple images to an user. However, I don't want to show them all at once in order to not clog their entire talk page. Instead, I want to split them into 4 different categories, in which each one contains a different number of images. However, I don't know how to do that. Sarantis (talk) 20:18, 8 September 2018 (UTC)

You can probably use different galleries like this:
First set:
  • A

  • B

  • C

  • Second set:
  • D

  • E

  • ...etc
    Atlas (talk) – CT/MK8 Wiki Admin 20:54, 8 September 2018 (UTC)
    Well, I have 48 images for the first set, 25 images for the second set, 12 images for the third set, and only 2 images for the fourth set. Sarantis (talk) 21:01, 8 September 2018 (UTC)
    That's a lot of images. You should consider contacting this user via mail or any other social media instead.
    Atlas (talk) – CT/MK8 Wiki Admin 21:22, 8 September 2018 (UTC)
    Took me a while to think of that, but what do you think of inserting just their links? Sarantis (talk) 22:00, 8 September 2018 (UTC) EDIT: Never mind, I'll find another way.

    I got an edit conflict... THREE TIMES!

    Sorry if I got rude, but I literally busted my ass trying to do a lenghty edit, only for you to stop me... three times. *cries in Greek* OK, seriosuly, after an agreement with GDias, I decided to make European Portuguese use the Spanish font for the in-game positions, as it's more used than the Italian one in Portugal. However I couldn't because I got three edit conflicts. *sigh* What can I do about that? Sarantis (talk) 21:37, 9 September 2018 (UTC)

    Whenever there's an edit conflict you get two texts, yours and the new one. In most of the cases, what you need to do is pick up the new one and add the content you added to it. I'm done editing the graphics translation page, so feel free to make your edits now.

    Track Wishlist

    Hi, how would you make a track wishlist page? would you just create it or do you have to use a certain command? sorry if i come across a bit dumb haha - Graciie (talk) 13:39, 2 October 2018 (UTC)

    There is no template for this kind of page, so I recommend you copy the source from an existing one and work from there. —Atlas (talk) – CT/MK8 Wiki Admin 15:52, 2 October 2018 (UTC)
    Ah okay, thank you - Graciie (talk) 15:32, 3 October 2018 (UTC)

    I'm curious if the "η" should be added to the extended font...

    I saw that Syara had made a font that adds various characters not present in the base game. One of these is the "ος", and after asking her, I found out that you were the one who told him/her to add it. After some thinking, do you think that the "η" be added to the extended font too? Just so you know, it appears exclusively in the Friend Roster option when showing a friend that is in the middle of the first, second, or third Balloon Battle or Coin Runners in Friend Rooms. It plays the same role as the "ος" in this case. Sarantis (talk) 10:51, 18 October 2018 (UTC)

    I have just messaged him about it. —Atlas (talk) – CT/MK8 Wiki Admin 12:38, 18 October 2018 (UTC)

    Tools

    Hi Atlas, I hope you are well. I saw your tool ItemSlot Editor (I like it) then my question is: why did you keep it private if you finished it in 2017? I hope your answer. --MrDark35000vr (talk) 22:24, 28 November 2018 (UTC)

    The only reason was because there's potential of other people using it to cheat online. But since you released yours there's no point anymore so I decided to release mine as well. You should probably add a disclaimer to not use the tool to cheat online as well. —Atlas (talk) – CT/MK8 Wiki Admin 23:41, 28 November 2018 (UTC)
    I get it, makes sense. I add a disclaimer right now. Thank you for reply. --MrDark35000vr (talk) 00:05, 29 November 2018 (UTC)
    Atlas, you made so many small tools. Why not creating a page (e.g. "Atlas's Tools") to present all tools with 1-2 sentences and a link to the page. -- Wiimm (talk) 15:43, 29 November 2018 (UTC)
    A link to the tools page or a link to the download link page? If it's to the download page, should I delete the pages then?
    Atlas (talk) – CT/MK8 Wiki Admin 20:11, 29 November 2018 (UTC)
    My idea was an overview page like the tutorials overview. With links to the other existing pages.
    Another idea: A tools summary for all tools like the software category, but with small comments.
    -- Wiimm (talk) 21:00, 29 November 2018 (UTC)
    I'd do that, but I'm not sure if it would look good or not (and I'm not really good at summarizing the existing tools' overviews).
