Sorry, I'm late (very busy last weeks). I added you distribution now: https://ct.wiimm.de/dis/109 -- Wiimm (talk) 12:23, 4 January 2020 (UTC)

_d files

In talk:Intermezzo you provided many _d files. Are that really tracks to reduce a slow motion bug? And if yes: where are the non _d versions? -- Wiimm (talk) 13:34, 24 January 2020 (UTC)

Updating tracks

Hi there, I recently noticed that you had updated my Lavaflow Volcano remake without my knowledge and consent.
I have recently been working on an update to fix said issue, and you should have asked me on Discord before doing so, because now this makes this update pretty pointless and I don't appreciate you editing my things without my knowledge.
Regardless of that, you should really be asking the authors before updating their tracks, as I'd rather know what people are doing with my stuff before anyone does anything with it, and I'm pretty sure that goes for many other authors.

-- Jasperr (talk) 16:01, 11 February 2020 (BST)

Sorry, I was just doing this because Huili asked me to. I can delete it if you wish. Trainiax/SwampyGator (talk) 16:14, 11 February 2020 (UTC)
Updates cannot be removed, but all I am asking of you is that you contact me and ask me about an update before releasing it without me knowing.
But thank you for responding.
-- Jasperr (talk) 16:26, 11 February 2020 (BST)
My notes about this:
  1. Adding the LEX file doesn't change any other aspects of the track than the expanse of the item range online. The normal user will not notice any modification. So it is not an alternative version, but a bug fix.
  2. A LEX file is not necessary here. Centering the track around the origin will fix this bug too.
-- Wiimm (talk) 16:46, 11 February 2020 (UTC)
Thank you both for this. I am very new to the track sharing section of the community instead of just playing tracks. I will keep all these notes. Trainiax/SwampyGator (talk) 17:50, 11 February 2020 (UTC)

Trial Moderator Role

Hi. Would you be up to be a trial moderator? Considering we could use a few more members on the Wiiki staff, I think you would be a decent candidate. --KantoEpic (talk) 06:27, 12 October 2020 (UTC)

Thank you! Yes, I would be most willing. Trainiax/SwampyGator (talk) 12:42, 12 October 2020 (UTC)
Alright. I have given you the role. If you continue to be active and make consistently good edits within one week from now, I will make you a moderator. --KantoEpic (talk) 14:17, 12 October 2020 (UTC)

Introducing Users

Quick reminder that you do not / should not introduce the rules to a new user if they have not made a single edit on the Wiki yet.
You are free to do so after they have made an edit of course. I was told this by Kanto himself, so just try to remember.
-- Jasperr β˜… Talk 11:26, 21 September 2020 (NZST)

Huh. I just thought that was back a while ago when spambots were constantly joining. Thanks for letting me know. Trainiax/SwampyGator (talk) 22:28, 20 October 2020 (UTC)

Download Links

Hi Trainiax can you add download links to autumn raceway, riverview square, and rocrygma mines? Blake (talk) 13:05, 21 October 2020 (UTC)

I will get to them eventually. I have been very busy the past couple of days. Trainiax/SwampyGator (talk) 13:12, 21 October 2020 (UTC)
OkBlake (talk) 13:13, 21 October 2020 (UTC)
Oh and also can you add download links to remiland aka desert cross as well Blake (talk) 00:18, 22 October 2020 (UTC)
When are you gonna add download links to Autumn Raceway, Riverview Square, Remiland aka Desert Cross, & Rocrygma Mines? Blake (talk) 21:37, 3 November 2020 (UTC)
Cam you add download links to GCN Bowser's Castle (Baoulettes) & GCN Daisy Cruiser (Super-Daisy55) Blake (talk) 19:36, 19 December 2020 (UTC)
Can you also put in download links for GCN Bowser's Castle (Tock) Blake (talk) 22:20, 19 December 2020 (UTC)
Can you also add download links for SNES Bowser Castle 3 (Tock) --Unsigned comment by Blake (talk).
He will put download links to them when he gets to them. In the meanwhile, you can take download links from Wiimm's CT-Archive. You can search for every single track and arena there. After you have downloaded your selection, convert the .wbz files with a WBZ Converter, created by Wiimm. If you have any other questions, please head to my talk page. 🏁_____πŸŽ„______πŸš—_____πŸŽ„ Krummers (talk) 07:25, 20 December 2020 (UTC)
I don't mind this, honestly. I've had more time lately and downloading the files to upload also helps me with my track archive. Trainiax/SwampyGator (talk) 07:51, 20 December 2020 (UTC)
Can you add download links to GCN Baby Park (Tock), GCN Baby Park (maczkopeti), & Sandcastle Park Blake (talk) 22:47, 21 December 2020 (UTC)
I dealt with those tracks this time. --KantoEpic (talk) 04:30, 22 December 2020 (UTC)
Can you add download links to DKR Ancient Lake --Unsigned comment by Blake (talk).

Can you add download links to Sunset Forest (Luigi45000vr) and Aura Metropolis Blake (talk) 21:33, 7 January 2021 (UTC)
Aura Metropolis is added. For Sunset Forest, RC3 is the only version of Wiimm's archive, so I can't access the other ones. Trainiax/SwampyGator (talk) 05:00, 9 January 2021 (UTC)
ok but in the Wiimm's archive how come i saw something before version RC3 that says Forest Way what does that mean? Blake (talk) 19:11, 9 January 2021 (UTC)
Forest Way is a track edit of Sunset Ridge that was created for Teknik Kart Wii, that you can find here. Trainiax/SwampyGator (talk) 19:52, 9 January 2021 (UTC)

Can you send the download link for Icy Vulcan Valley RC3.ctgp because all I can find is the wbz file of it Blake (talk) 01:41, 19 January 2021 (UTC)

I have moved you up from a trial moderator to a moderator, as you continued to make good edits consistently and you are active. --KantoEpic (talk) 02:32, 24 October 2020 (UTC)

Thank you so much! Trainiax/SwampyGator (talk) 04:37, 24 October 2020 (UTC)

Blocking Users

Hey, I seen on the recent changes page that Sergio Gimenez Alcaraz was again blocked. He/she edited one page and created one prior to getting blocked. I just checked through the revisions of those two pages and I don't think those edits he/she did looked sufficient at all to warrant a block. The decision for you to block Sergio Gimenez Alcaraz this time has angered me and it's also left me to criticise the decision because the the decision to block is "manifestly excessive" and he/she did not deserve it at all for those two simple edits. -- Octanevinny (talk) 01:48, 4 November 2020 (UTC)

I didn't even know he was blocked, but I agree with Octanevinny. Blocking a person who doesn't know a lot about wiki editing doesn't deserve a ban, but requires help. I will unban him later this day, after you've seen and reacted to this message. πŸš— MarkAlbertsma03 (talk) 05:57, 4 November 2020 (UTC)
I agree with MarkAlbertsma03's comment about blocking someone that doesn't know enough about wiiki editing does not deserve a suspension. meanwhile, I unblocked Sergio Gimenez Alcaraz earlier. -- Octanevinny (talk) 10:01, 4 November 2020 (UTC)
The decision to block Sergio the first time was something I discussed a lot with Kanto, and we both agreed that he should've been blocked earlier the first time. The point of that block was for him to finally read the messages on his talk page about using the proper page format. Since his initial block ended, he had not made any changes in the way that he was creating pages. I personally believe that he had been given more than enough chances, and that the block was justified. Trainiax/SwampyGator (talk) 13:00, 4 November 2020 (UTC)

Even though AlmostTWD98 was blocked earlier, There was no need to block him earlier because he may of been not aware of it at all. You could of chosen to instead leave a message on his talk page about creating new pages. I don't think he deserved to be blocked at all because of simply not being aware of something; like creating new pages, for instance. --PeachKia52250vr (talk) 03:59, 23 July 2021 (UTC)

As I said in the block message itself, it was not meant to be a permanent solution. I wanted to make sure that he saw the message before continuing on and creating more work for us. It was a 30 minute block in itself and I revoked it earlier than that. Trainiax/SwampyGator (talk) 06:35, 23 July 2021 (UTC)

Distribution Help

So, I want to make a CT distributon but have no idea how. Can you help? XanderKartWii (talk) 05:51, 29 November 2020 (USA)

How?

How do you import models into the Common.szs file? I want to create some item hacks. - XanderKartWii (talk) 05:25, 30 November 2020 (USA)

Importing existing mods? Extracting the Common.szs with wszst and replacing the brres. Making new models? Same way as making a character. Trainiax/SwampyGator (talk) 02:11, 1 December 2020 (UTC)
Okay. Hey, just wondering, since I don't know how to make custom characters do you think you can ask Atlas if he can make some for me? He doesn't need to make vehicle textures because I'll do them. He just needs to put the characters over the Flame Runner/Mach Bike/ Bullet bike. If I release it, I'll say that it was made by me and Atlas. XanderKartWii (talk) 07:50, 30 November 2020 (USA)
As far as I know, Atlas doesn't do mods for free, although you can check over Discord if his commissions are open and you may be able to pay for a mod (although I believe the policy is that you're not supposed to release) Trainiax/SwampyGator (talk) 04:50, 1 December 2020 (UTC)
Can you ask anybody if they will make custom characters for me? XanderKartWii (talk) 07:20, 1 December 2020 (USA)

Fonts

How do you make custom fonts? XanderKartWii (talk) 09:23, 6 December 2020 (USA)

I've never made one, but I'd probably try Brfnt2tpl. Trainiax/SwampyGator (talk) 18:20, 6 December 2020 (UTC)
Okay. Can you ask all the custom character creators if they could make custom characters for me? XanderKartWii (talk) 05:19, 6 December 2020 (USA)
I'm not going to even begin to explain how ridiculous that is, so instead I'll just say this: no. Trainiax/SwampyGator (talk) 01:49, 7 December 2020 (UTC)
Okay. Sorry for bothering you. XanderKartWii (talk) 03:09, 7 December 2020 (USA)

WBZ Converter

I would like to know more about how to use the wbz converter so i installed it so whats the next step? Blake (talk) 20:32, 9 January 2021 (UTC)

I never use WBZ Converter. I always just use Wiimms SZS Tools with the command:
wszst compress --szs FILENAME.wbz
Trainiax/SwampyGator (talk) 22:58, 9 January 2021 (UTC)
Oh ok but how do you use the wiimms szs tools that converts wbz files to szs files
Blake (talk) 00:18, 15 January 2021 (UTC)
By using the exact command I sent in command prompt. Trainiax/SwampyGator (talk) 00:23, 15 January 2021 (UTC)
I tried doing that and this is what happened
https://drive.google.com/file/d/1ENfmtRLtT78zXVGrFRpl-eXF32aVQc4U/view Blake (talk) 01:33, 15 January 2021 (UTC)
Try replacing "Forsaken Mansion Beta (SpyKid) [r53]" for the designated file name with "*" instead. Using an asterisk can also allow you to convert multiple files at once. --KantoEpic (talk) 02:43, 15 January 2021 (UTC)
Alternatively, if there is one file you want to convert and it contains spaces in the filename you need to put it in quotation marks. Trainiax/SwampyGator (talk) 02:48, 15 January 2021 (UTC)
Ok what happens if I do that Blake (talk) 02:54, 15 January 2021 (UTC)
I just tried it and this happened what does it mean https://drive.google.com/file/d/1ET1AWkalrDNpdQ1RXXVXStGZHCJVKThE/view Blake (talk) 03:39, 15 January 2021 (UTC)
It should be "*.wbz", not just the asterisk. I forgot to mention that. Otherwise, it reads too much stuff from your computer and not what you want. --KantoEpic (talk) 03:46, 15 January 2021 (UTC)
https://drive.google.com/file/d/1E_mOCEHbNpdFAg5v2btSuMBSqeRlpQv7/view?
This is what happened Blake (talk) 04:00, 15 January 2021 (UTC)
Is the WBZ file in the same directory from where you are running Command Prompt? --KantoEpic (talk) 04:08, 15 January 2021 (UTC)

I used the search bar to find command prompt and I'm not sure about that the command prompt I'm using is the one in I searched for in apps of my computer Blake (talk) 04:12, 15 January 2021 (UTC)

Go into the folder that has the WBZ file and in the address bar type "cmd". Trainiax/SwampyGator (talk) 12:56, 15 January 2021 (UTC)
I just tried going to cmd and this is what happened I didnt search it in the address bar this time I just went to convert to szs and this is what happened https://drive.google.com/file/d/1F6jP4VEsBXtkBZX8Njio_bXzUQw7sGW8/view Blake (talk) 13:25, 15 January 2021 (UTC)
Try dragging the WBZ into that file. I don't really know though, I've never tried those. Trainiax/SwampyGator (talk) 14:02, 15 January 2021 (UTC)
I tried doing that and it didnt work Blake (talk) 14:58, 15 January 2021 (UTC)
I have no idea for that program then. Trainiax/SwampyGator (talk) 14:58, 15 January 2021 (UTC)
Ok so when you convert wbz files how do you do it? Blake (talk) 15:01, 15 January 2021 (UTC)
With the command you were using before. Trainiax/SwampyGator (talk) 15:22, 15 January 2021 (UTC)
But why does it work for you and not for me Blake (talk) 15:24, 15 January 2021 (UTC)
Because you're not doing it right. Do exactly what I said: go into the folder that has the file, type "cmd" into the Windows Explorer address bar, and it'll load command prompt set to run in that folder. Then again run "wszst compress --szs *.wbz" Trainiax/SwampyGator (talk) 17:50, 15 January 2021 (UTC)
I just tried that and this happened https://drive.google.com/file/d/1FZ-1-WokbQvtkdHGaN0cLH8OIacW0WS9/view Blake (talk) 22:00, 15 January 2021 (UTC)

Only include the filename in quotes. Trainiax/SwampyGator (talk) 22:18, 15 January 2021 (UTC)

Can you send a picture of what it should look like Blake (talk) 22:32, 15 January 2021 (UTC)
Here. Trainiax/SwampyGator (talk) 01:23, 16 January 2021 (UTC)
I just tried it and it didnt work Blake (talk) 03:05, 16 January 2021 (UTC)
I really don't know how to help you then, I've given you exact directions multiple times. Trainiax/SwampyGator (talk) 03:36, 16 January 2021 (UTC)
Ok but is there any other way to convert wbz files Blake (talk) 03:43, 16 January 2021 (UTC)
If you have Discord there's this bot that will convert them, I'm not sure if it's still up however. Trainiax/SwampyGator (talk) 03:59, 16 January 2021 (UTC)
Can you send the link for the converter on discord Blake (talk) 04:08, 16 January 2021 (UTC)
Now I can't find it. Trainiax/SwampyGator (talk) 04:42, 16 January 2021 (UTC)

Riivolution IDs

So I want to mod other games but all games have a specific ID.

Screenshot 2021-01-29 104426.png

Is there a way to know all these IDs? XanderKartWii (talk) 18:48, 29 January 2021 (UTC)

Type in the name of the game here. Then take the first three letters/digits (for example, Smash Brawl would be "RSB"). Trainiax/SwampyGator (talk) 19:00, 29 January 2021 (UTC)
Okay. Also, can you send a tutorial on how to make Wii Sports/New Super Mario Bros. Wii mods? I can't find any. XanderKartWii (talk) 22:30, 29 January 2021 (UTC)
I can't really help you there, I've never done anything with either. Trainiax/SwampyGator (talk) 22:35, 29 January 2021 (UTC)
Okay. Also just wondering, do you want to make a LE-CODE distribution with me? XanderKartWii (talk) 22:37, 29 January 2021 (UTC)

Best ISO Man

Hi, I've noticed that on the CT Jam Discord Server you always make ISO patches and are regarded as the Best ISO Man. I'm here to ask you if you have written a program that lets you automatically create an ISO with LE-CODE from the various szs files. If you have, I think your program might be better than the scripts I included in my CT downloader, so I might wanna remove those and use your program as a dependency instead. I hope I explained myself well (although to be honest I don't think I have, so feel free to ask questions). Cheers -- Cealgair (talk|contribs) 23:04, 6 February 2021 (UTC)

Yes, I wrote a Python script that handles the building of a LE-CODE distribution. It takes tracks from a folder, parses their names, and sets up one of Wiimm's ISO Patchers to be used. I do plan to release at some point, however there are more things that I want to do with it before I release. I don't have a lot of time with school, so if I'm being honest I wouldn't expect to finish it until around June, however I do plan on releasing it to the public at some point, and I would be fine with you including it in your program. I hope this answers your question, and if not feel free to ask more. Trainiax/SwampyGator (talk) 03:45, 7 February 2021 (UTC)
That's exactly the answer I was looking for. I think it's useless if we two develop two programs that do the same thing, so I think we should merge our works eventually. I think I'll wait for your release before further discussion, which will probably be about small edits to your code in order to work well with mine and vice versa -- Cealgair (talk|contribs) 08:05, 7 February 2021 (UTC)

BrawlCrate

Does BrawlCrate work on Linux? XanderKartWii (talk) 00:16, 22 February 2021 (UTC)

You might be able to get it to work on Wine, but I have absolutely no idea. Trainiax/SwampyGator (talk) 01:34, 22 February 2021 (UTC)

Uploading Kustom Mario Kart Wii Tracks to The Wiki Help Request

Would you mind helping me upload atleast 1/4 of the tracks? I know I was quick in uploading Mario Kart Black's tracks but it takes away hours of my time to upload them and then create wiki pages for them to which I also have to add them to the "List of Texture Hacked Tracks' page. By the way, shouldn't Mario Kart Black be considered a successor to the Kustom Mario Kart Wii pack? If it does, lets add that to MKB's page. -Jim Fitzgerald (talk) 12:53, 26 February 2021 (UTC)

ISOs

When I extract ISOs using CleanRip but it extracts them into parts. How do I make them into 1 single ISO? XanderKartWii (talk) 16:57, 9 March 2021 (UTC)

Open Command Prompt and run the command "copy file1.iso file2.iso > file.iso" (but replace "file1.iso file2.iso" with all of the parts you have). Trainiax/SwampyGator (talk) 12:55, 10 March 2021 (UTC)
What program should I use because I don't have WSZST. XanderKartWii (talk) 14:49, 10 March 2021 (UTC)
You don't need WSZST. It's a base command built into the Windows terminal. Trainiax/SwampyGator (talk) 18:14, 10 March 2021 (UTC)
