About Wiimmfi

Use User talk:Wiimm/Wiimmfi for discussions about Wiimmfi.

Are you serious?

So, I edited this place of this thread : http://wiki.tockdom.com/wiki/User_talk:Wiimm/Archive/2014-01-21#TheMygoshi_alias_Proround Because I don't want to share my IP right now, so why do you share my IP in public? I know I did it but now I don't want to share this.

You should know that it's prohibited to have more than one account in the Wiiki. Why do you use this second account instead? —Atlas (talk) 19:41, 15 August 2016 (UTC)
  1. Yes, I'm serious!
  2. Are you the one who edited the page and destroyed not only an ip address (=vandalism)? (rhetoric question)
  3. I didn't reverted your edits -- so I'm the wrong address for this aggressive question.
  4. However, I find that the revert was right, because
    • You hide not only an ip address.
    • You are not the person, who inserted the ip address.

"You are not the person, who inserted the ip address."
Actually, he is.
--maczkopeti (talk) 10:06, 16 August 2016 (UTC)
Don't need to be rude, I didn't want to be agressive. Just I don't want to share infos like this in public now, I know it's possible to get my IP just here but I don't want to have this written in a page.. Thanks for removing my Skype on my THeMygoshi profile.

Countdown Worldwide POC (patched for test.wiimmfi.de)

I am traveling for a few days. So don't expect anything from me in the week. -- Wiimm (talk) 23:13, 15 October 2016 (UTC)
OK Aplumafreak500 (talk) 23:15, 15 October 2016 (UTC)
Is this a new version of countdown capable of running on the battle "slot" so you could have regional VS and regional countdown both in one distribution? Or is this just the old (already known) patch which replaces VS? -- Leseratte (talk) 08:46, 16 October 2016 (UTC)
Unfortunately I don't know how to replace battle with Countdown. Also, this patch is meant to allow Worldwide and Regional play on Countdown Mode (read: not CTWW) Aplumafreak500 (talk) 16:06, 16 October 2016 (UTC)

About custom tracks not available for download

Star Slope as of v1.0 and onwards is not available for download. The only way to play the track is downloading CTGP Revolution and using a "cheat code" to add the track to a cup. From what I've interpreted of the Wiiki rules, this is not allowed here, as all content should be directly available for everyone. Is the Wiiki allowed to host a custom track page and distribution like that? Aside from that, it is true that more than 6 months had passed after the release of the previous version of the track, and I as the original creator had allowed Torran to remake it, but I got no saying on the fact the track is not available for download. --Igorseabra4 (talk) 03:44, 13 November 2016 (UTC)

This is a difficult topic. On the one hand, this wiki is a kind of an encyclopedia with all malformations about MKW. On the other hand we have the rule of an existing download link (current or past) to avoid announcements of vaporware. So I'm not sure, if we should remove the newer versions. But it is maczkopetis choice. He replaced me as Wiki administrator. If we remove the updates, we should leave at least a notification like "Torran made private updates."
About Torran: In the past he was a nice guy and helped others. Meanwhile he is a very egoistic man and do many things only for CTGP. I read statements of him like "I know the problem, but I don't tell you". And Only-CTGP tracks is the another unfriendly action by him. Leseratte talked with MrBean about this months ago. And he said, he will make public all tracks in CTGP.
Best is to ask him directly for the current version! And if this fails, ask MrBean.
-- Wiimm (talk) 11:06, 13 November 2016 (UTC)
I'm not interested in having the file myself, I'm just concerned about if it's right or not to have the track like that. I guess I'll just ask Bean about it then. --Igorseabra4 (talk) 02:35, 14 November 2016 (UTC)

Lap & Speed Modifier

Hello Wiimm!

I contacted you a while back with questions about your Lap & Speed Modifier, and how to use it. If this is a more appropriate venue to get assistance, and if you are not too busy, any other assistance would be fantastic!

Also, is there a convenient way to donate to you and/or other custom MK content creators for your work? I'd certainly like to support all this cool stuff, and I've only just begun to enjoy it!

Thanks!
--Unsigned comment by Lsh4 (talk).

I personally do not accept donations. However, we have some problems to finance the Wiimmfi server in the next year. We will discuss it in the next week. So simply wait a while. -- Wiimm (talk) 15:06, 19 December 2016 (UTC)
Okay, I understand. Thanks!

Page deletion

Hey Wiimm! Can you delete the page Inkling35000vr's CT Pack please? I don't need the page anymore since I canceled it. Inkling35000vr (talk) 20:10, 21 January 2017 (EST)

Done. Next time you should put "[[Category:Delete]]" on the page that you want to delete.
--Wexos (Talk | Contribs) 10:17, 22 January 2017 (UTC)
And what's about the reserved regions (174,628-665)?
-- Wiimm (talk) 11:21, 22 January 2017 (UTC)
Thanks! I think I'll use region 174 for testing and I'll use regions 628-665 for future projects. Inkling35000vr (talk) 08:58, 22 January 2017 (EST)

Custom Track Regions

Hello Wiimm, may I please reserve the region 7777?

Thank you, Dogma (talk) 15:25, 7 February 2017 (UTC)

What does the Region table tell you? -- Wiimm (talk) 18:26, 7 February 2017 (UTC)
1001-8898 | 7898 free regions ? Sorry if I've missed something, I'm new to this and I got told to ask you on here.
-- Dogma (talk) 02:32, 8 February 2017 (UTC)
First, reserve a region by yourself by editing that page - but please pick a region at the beginning or end of a range and do not "split" a free slot - so I'd recommend 1001 or 8898.
Then, ask Wiimm to activate the region on Wiimmfi. -- Leseratte (talk) 10:44, 9 February 2017 (UTC)
Thank you Leseratte, I appreciate your help! :)
-- Dogma (talk) 12:05, 9 February 2017 (UTC)


Hey Wiimm, could I reserve region 815? From region 815-898 they're free so yea. It's for a hack pack in progress that i'm creating, Dank Kart Wii.

Thanks, SpartaYoshi (talk) 20:22, 24 April 2017 (UTC)

User names and redirects

Hello Wiimm, I don't understand why you revert my edits to leave the long username with "User:". Isn't the purpose of user redirects to have less letters in the pages? If it isn't, why aren't then all user redirects removed? I'm confused now. —Atlas (talk) 20:29, 14 February 2017 (UTC)

user:Wiimm is a user of this wiki, but Wiimm is an article about the human Wiimm. And the article is only needed, if the user is important enough for the community (author of a track, distribution, software, ...). Articles should tell in third person like other articles, and user pages in first person. Sadly, the articles are redirected to the users because of laziness (maybe a fault of me and other moderators in the past). Years ago I planned to split both entries for the most important people and to revert the redirects, but I haven't time for it.
As summary, a redirect from Wiimm to user:Wiimm is illogical and should not be forced, but fixed.
So it is not needed to add a redirect for new users.
-- Wiimm (talk) 23:18, 14 February 2017 (UTC)
I understand now, thanks. —Atlas (talk) 23:32, 14 February 2017 (UTC)

Custom tracks disappearing from track selection screen

Hi Wiimm, really enjoying the huge collection of custom tracks in MKW-Fun 2016-10. However, I'm encountering an issue in VS mode. I choose a course, play through it, and then when the game returns to the track selection screen, it only shows the original 8 cups from Mario Kart Wii. The left and right arrows are still there but after the crown/lightning cups it just loops around to the mushroom/shell cups. Here's what I'm seeing. The cups with custom tracks appear again after quitting VS and starting VS again. This happens in all player modes (1 player, 2 player, etc.) I've worked around this by choosing random track selection, which at least lets me play custom tracks without having to quit VS after every race, but of course I can't choose which tracks to play. I have the same problem with MKW-Fun 2016-07. I'm using the English version on Dolphin 5. Mindnight (talk) 17:53, 2 April 2017 (UTC)

Never heard about it before. maybe a distrib-creation bug. So only help I can give:
  1. Try at a real Wii
  2. Re-create the image again.
-- Wiimm (talk) 22:01, 8 April 2017 (UTC)
It works fine on a real Wii. Strange. I recreated the image and still have the issue on Dolphin. Mindnight (talk) 05:51, 10 April 2017 (UTC)
Dolphin is not perfect! -- Wiimm (talk) 21:29, 10 April 2017 (UTC)
This post on the Dolphin Emulator's blog has a couple paragraphs about this. The CT-CODE does not properly clear the icache and instead relies on a quirk of the Wii's processor to do the job. If this were to be emulated, it would cause extreme (14x, apparently) performance drops, so it isn't. The task is (probably) simple (for a programmer): edit the CT-CODE's source code to properly clear the icache.
(also, lol, that post refers to Wiimms MKW Fun as "Wiimm's Mario Kart Wii More Fun"
--Cotni (talk|contribs) 22:19, 10 April 2017 (UTC)
Here is the source code if a programmer wants to fix this: https://github.com/Wiimm/wii-ct-code/blob/master/bad1/bad1Data/mod/filter.mod
Neither Wiimm nor me know the internals of Dolphin.
Either a developer more experienced with the dolphin internals fixes this - the CT-CODE source code version used in MKW Fun is available - or the Dolphin developers fix that in dolphin.
If someone tells me the exact instruction(s) we'd need to clear from the instruction cache, I could try to implement it. A general "clear the cache" does not help with solving the problem.

Severe Wiimmfi Lag

Hi! I'm a new member of this wiki. I just wanted to ask for help with my Wiimmfi connection, as it seems to be very laggy in both CTGP (where I get kicked out of the room before even starting the race) and Hack Pack (where it doesn't even let me access). Since I always get error codes like 20100 or 61070, I tried to check my connection settings and everything seems OK, but I still can't solve the problem. Can you help me please? --Unsigned comment by TheChibiKing (talk).

No private support. Ask one of the forums, there many helpers with more experience in network problems.

Renaming User

Idea

Since the number of CT slots is limited to 248 tracks (including originals), do ypu think it would be possible to merge the CT Code edits with CTGP 4.4's layer system ? It would bring the total possible track number to 744. I'm asking you since you know a lot about MKW and actually reply to people. -Dswii3ds (talk) 19:59, 18 August 2017 (UTC)

Leseratte is working at another technical solution. But it will take a long time -- Wiimm (talk) 21:03, 18 August 2017 (UTC)
The layer system is only a substitute for the track selection menu. It doesn't give us more slots. The online mode is the problem since the track selection online and the winning vote selection only use one byte for the track ID. -- Leseratte (talk) 21:24, 18 August 2017 (UTC)


A quetsion about Wiimmfi

Hello Wiimm! I have a question regarding Wiimmfi. How do I use my reigons (1112-1119) on distributions like CTGPR?

File Hosting

Would it matter if i made a site to host MKW related files ? It has no limits except file formats. Would you be interested ? -Dswii3ds (talk) 11:06, 19 October 2017 (UTC)

The more people host all the files, the more difficult it is for Nintendo. Therefore, it is a good idea.

CT Archive author name mixup

It appears that everything that should say "Ermelber" says "Cotni" instead. For example, Ermelber Circuit by Ermelber is named Cotni Circuit by Cotni, and GCN Yoshi Circuit is attributed to Yoshidude4 and Cotni. Did you intend to rename "Emergamer02"? --Cotni (talk|contribs) 23:40, 18 November 2017 (UTC)

I wanted to rename Emergamer02 to Cotni, and then I renamed Ermelber. I fixed all now. If you find errors, please tell me. -- Wiimm (talk) 00:08, 19 November 2017 (UTC)
Thanks. 3DS Wuhu Loop is attributed to me and Rukasudo instead of just Rukasudo. --Cotni (talk|contribs) 00:13, 19 November 2017 (UTC)
Fixed too -- Wiimm (talk) 00:19, 19 November 2017 (UTC)
