The end result of your efforts

Courtesy of the users at Brawl Snapshots, I have prepared a little treat for you all. Ever since texture hacks have become widely available, many of the users on this site have made good use of them. Rather than simply fooling around or beating them up, they have implemented their appearances into fitting snapshots. Some represent certain games, some are just artistically placed. Special props go to moderator chaoticcranium for an absurd amount of creative shots that both implement good textures and difficult hacks (that first one is his). But he’s not alone, there are many users that have taken advantage of these masterpieces.

Hit the jump to view hundreds of creative shots that I have tediously assembled over the past few days. Hovering over them will show the author, and you can view the contributor’s full galleries by clicking the links at the end of this post.

  14. 14 foxsleftear 11/29/2009 at 3:56 PM

    Ah, I was waiting for this to be put together. Nice job squid.

    I must point out though, (even though I couldn’t care less), Taj’s “Shadow Mario Steals F.L.U.D.D.” shot, was originally my idea, he took the shot for me. Looking back at this entire thing, I shed a little tear.

  15. 15 chaoticcranium 11/29/2009 at 3:56 PM

    It’s. . .so. . .BEAUTIFUL!!!

    Thank you so much for doing all of this, shadowsquid86, it really came out great and the extra exposure is wonderful. And a huge thank you to all of you awesome texture creators – I hope you enjoy to what end your amazing textures are being used. Believe me, I had a lot of fun donning your textures and making these shots ^_^

    And, of course, to all the texture hackers for making these textures!

  18. 18 darkredscorpio 11/29/2009 at 4:20 PM

    I thank everyone who made these pictures and textures and thank you shadowsquid86 for putting this up.

    Wow, that’s one huge gallery. I bet that it was quite a bit tedious collecting them all.

    Also, it seems that two of my shots are here? Now seeing my Lip picture again reminds me how aweful it came out, texture and shot. I wanted to make a Lip VS Yoshi shot, but had not enough controller.

  22. 22 Chaos the smashtitan 11/29/2009 at 4:51 PM

    I was wondering where did you get the divided heroes (sonic and shadow) texture and the Eggman one and the one with sliver floating (the sonc texture) did you use the one me and kyzon made on the KKCC forums

  23. 23 Calamitas 11/29/2009 at 5:10 PM

    @Chaos the smashtitan:
    The “Divided Heroes” shot contained actually a morph between a Sonic with Shadow texture, and a Sonic in his regular costum. The only thing I did was making them roll towards the edge of Final Destination.
    The pictures with Eggman use what we call a “misplaced texture”, what in this case is a Eggman texture for Wario in Ganondorf’s folder.
    And your guess about the shot with Silver is right.

  24. 24 Unai 11/29/2009 at 5:17 PM

    YESZ, both of my Fierce Deity Links are there, and Ganon Deluxe.

  25. 25 catgowoof 11/29/2009 at 5:39 PM

    These are wicked. And I think 2 of my guys are in there.

  30. 30 wii 11/29/2009 at 6:25 PM

    thank you.

  31. 31 sasook 11/29/2009 at 7:46 PM

    Wow, a lot of those were really creative.

    ..A lot of those textures are also ones I’ve never seen before. Which is surprising, because I scan/scout/lurk/whatever you wanna call it a lot of texture sites.

    Can the DL links to all textures used be found in that list of people after the pictures?

  32. 32 NewAgeRetroGiegue 11/29/2009 at 8:04 PM

    You have to keep in mind that not everyone is a member of texture hacking sites. Maybe many of them are private and were made just for fun.

  33. 33 _Data_Drain_ 11/29/2009 at 8:04 PM

    Which ones do you mean?

  34. 34 starshadow76 11/29/2009 at 9:25 PM

    This was pretty kool, I liked.

  35. 35 Squilliam 11/29/2009 at 9:27 PM

    I feel honored that my Morshu texture was used in this compilation!

  36. 36 Chaos the smashtitan 11/29/2009 at 9:49 PM

    Cool so my and kyzons sonic flying hack is known w00t I feel like a cheery school girl. xD just kidding. With the eggman thats in the ganon folder is it just as simple as putting the texture in ganons folder?

  37. 37 P. Wright 11/29/2009 at 9:51 PM

    I think that Dark Link texture is by Stuff20, he made it a long time ago and that snapshot was made a few months ago.

  38. 38 Charmeleon 11/29/2009 at 9:54 PM

    that’s odd i made one to.
    I did no know he made one.

  39. 39 rawrzilla22 11/29/2009 at 9:55 PM

    Where the hell can I get those size modifiers for Squirtle and Ivysaur?!!!

  40. 40 sasook 11/29/2009 at 11:01 PM

    @Data Drain

    For example, Ronald McDonald for CF.

  41. 41 STUFF2o 11/29/2009 at 11:10 PM

    Wow, my Majora’s Mask Kirby was in there 4 times! XD That means a total of 7 snapshots have my textures when you include Dark Link, Majora’s Destination, and Fixed Bowser. STUFF2o is content. :p

  42. 42 _Data_Drain_ 11/29/2009 at 11:20 PM

    @sasook: That’s a Syntax Error texture… Go here:

    Be careful, that’s a big file…Hope I helped. ^_^

  43. 43 Mario & Sonic Guy 11/29/2009 at 11:40 PM

    It’s quite amusing how texture hacking has evolved over the past year or so. Too bad that none of my textures were featured in that gallery though.

  44. 44 sasook 11/30/2009 at 12:26 AM

    @Data Drain

    I assume this was a texture pack. I dunno what any of these actually are. May I ask where you got this?

  45. 45 Val Halen 11/30/2009 at 12:55 AM

    “Shadow Half”, best pic! XD

  46. 46 _Data_Drain_ 11/30/2009 at 1:18 AM

    At stack Smash…They packaged all of Syntax Errors textures they made.
    Heres a list of whats what: Hope this helps.

  47. 47 _Data_Drain_ 11/30/2009 at 1:21 AM

    …I worded that badly…
    At Stack Smash, they packaged all of the textures Syntax Errors made.

  48. 48 Muigi 11/30/2009 at 2:01 AM

    How hilarious, I didn’t expect any of my snapshots to even make this. XD
    I feel quite honored to have a few of mine show up here. Thanks a lot, guys! =P

  49. 49 Calamitas 11/30/2009 at 2:06 AM

    @Chaos the smashtitan:
    To get this to work, you need to name the Wario texture as though it was one of Ganondorf’s textures, FitGanon00 for example.

    Hehe… well, Majora’s Mask is my favourite Zelda game for a reason.

  50. 50 springboob 11/30/2009 at 3:07 AM

    so much win in one post…

  51. 51 Wave Kusanagi 11/30/2009 at 6:31 AM

    This whole post was amazing…I don’t think I can say much else. XD;

    Oh, and love The Showdown pic. You have no idea how many times I’ve been reliving that experience using hacks. Especially with the new Killable Giga Bowser and the Mewtwo moveset. :3

  52. 52 Chaosofsmashtitans 11/30/2009 at 8:59 AM

    Is it really as simple as that. Makes me wonder why we haven’t tried this out on any other characters before. Huh to tell you the truth I thought doing that would just crash the game big time but I guess it works xD still confuses the hell out of me but I’ll play around with it myself

  53. 53 chaoticcranium 11/30/2009 at 3:13 PM

    @Chaos the smashtitan
    Misplacing textures essentially does the work of combining a texture hack with a moveset swap. So, since some combinations for moveset swapping freeze your game, some combinations for misplacing textures freeze your game too. But some work wonderfully, even though the movements are wonky. Misplacing that Eggman texture as Ganondorf works and gives him a pretty accurate model (although his head is still too big; Taj used partial size modifier to shrink his head in his buddy shot). For another example, I misplaced that Taki texture on Sheik, which removes her gun and gives her a more ninja-like moveset.

    Go check out this thread for more information:

  54. 54 _Data_Drain_ 11/30/2009 at 3:35 PM

    Although…Some misplaced textures look really weird…Like Peach’s model on Zelda. XD

  55. 55 Chaos the smashtitan 11/30/2009 at 4:07 PM

    Thats amazing.

  56. 56 Chaos the smashtitan 11/30/2009 at 4:40 PM

    I just tried wario texture on ganon and it froze…Sniffle sniffle…and tried a mario sonic switch and it didn’t even make it to the stage

  57. 57 _Data_Drain_ 11/30/2009 at 4:49 PM

    Yeah, the Wario Ganondorf swap will freeze if you do certain moves…most texture swaps are not functional enough to play as…Though try Ganondorf on Captain Falcon, that works nicely. πŸ™‚

  58. 58 Chaos the smashtitan 11/30/2009 at 4:52 PM

    LOL that one should work nicely I just wanted my eggman

  59. 59 _Data_Drain_ 11/30/2009 at 4:55 PM

    Well for Eggman, we’re just gonna have to wait for real model hacking…:(

  60. 60 Chaos the smashtitan 11/30/2009 at 4:56 PM


  61. 61 _Data_Drain_ 11/30/2009 at 4:57 PM

    …or maybe some clever use of BrawlBox…

  62. 62 Chaos the smashtitan 11/30/2009 at 6:18 PM

    Ok I’m gonna try brawlbox and edit it like it did for sonic/super sonic but I have one question…which do I edit wario or ganon? I mean editing ganon wouldn’t really work would it and editing wario would take a long time.

  63. 63 _Data_Drain_ 11/30/2009 at 7:38 PM

    I’m not sure…I never really worked with BrawlBox like that…But I would try editing Wario’s animation file, FitWariomotionect.pac and use ganon’s animations…But I don’t know…Maybe someone here can help.

  64. 64 Chaos the smashtitan 11/30/2009 at 7:47 PM

    Ok thanks.

  65. 65 _Data_Drain_ 11/30/2009 at 8:03 PM

  68. 68 CornBread 12/02/2009 at 4:32 PM

    please tell me someone is making a moveset on silver that looks CRAZY

  69. 69 Magikarp 12/02/2009 at 7:18 PM

    Yeeeah, brawl snapshots ftw. ;d

  70. 70 sasook 12/02/2009 at 8:36 PM

    Hmm… looking over this, I’d like to make a request. Does anyone have the DL links for…

    FMA textures (Marth & Ganon)

    Speed Racer Falcon

    Amazon Princess Zelda

    Assass-sin Sheik

    Legendary Knight (cover pic)

    Donald Duck Falco

    Big the Cat Lucario

    Those textures really got my attention. If they’re not released, oh well, I tried. Thanks in advance

  71. 71 chaoticcranium 12/02/2009 at 8:45 PM

    Well, from my shots:

    Edward is a Marth texture from Kitty Corp:

    That Alphonse is actually not a texture! It’s just a metal Ganondorf. But, texture hackers, there’s a good idea for you πŸ™‚

    Speed Racer and Galacta Knight are from Stack Smash, search here:

    (Syntax Error also has a Galacta with a cool logo and, IMHO, better mask. But the wings on Stack Smash’s are better, so I went with those for my shots).

  72. 72 Dotz 12/02/2009 at 10:41 PM

    tabuu falcon? plz tell me he haz the wings the whole time! (hopes its not just good perspective)

  73. 73 fireking220 12/03/2009 at 1:37 AM


    wrong. in order to add tabuus wings u have to code them into the model itself of create wings from various grafical effects

  74. 74 _Data_Drain_ 12/03/2009 at 2:33 AM

    …Which picture are you talking about? if it’s “Sonic the Hedgehog 2006” that’s just the silver in the background of green hill zone, Taj made sonic and the shadow textured sonic move in to the background with a code…

  77. 77 Squilliam 12/04/2009 at 10:29 PM

    Wait, WTF!? my morshu was not credited to MEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!?!?!?!?
