Q: Omg omg omg guys guys guys can u make (name here) plz plz or i will hate you forever lololol!

A. Depends. We now have a suggestions page so feel free to ask what texture you would like to see.

A. First of all, this is not fake. If you still think so, then get lost. Second, we made this using Pharrox’s guide (Not anymore, ASH is used now). (Actually, now we use BrawlBox)

Q. How did you make those textures?

A. It’s quite…long to explain so if you have a specific question about how to do a certain thing related to texture hacking, feel free to ask me or any other members of the team.

Q. Will these textures ever be released someday?

A. Check the roster. Most have downloads.

Q. If I get your textures, will they work online? I want to own my friends as (name here) so badly!

A. Yes, they will perfectly work online. The only thing is that only you will see them, unless the person you are brawling with also has the texture(s).

Q. Will this brick my Wii?

A. Short answer: no. There’s no way this can brick your Wii.

Q. Do I need a modchip to use the textures? If no, what do I need?

A. No, you do not need any modchip but that doesn’t mean you cannot use one  to texture hack. What you need though, is the homebrew channel, an ISO of brawl and the backup loader. (You just use an SD Card and File Patch code) For more information about how to install/get those, ask me.

Q. My question is not here! Help me!

A. If you have a question that is not located in this FAQ, then you can always ask the team about it in the comments below or in our IRC Channel.

Q. Do you have a IRC Channel?

A. If you did read the previous question, you would know the answer. Yes, we do have one.  Go to http://esper.net/pjirc/. When you’re there, type /join #elitesmashhackers.

Hope I helped you guys!

  5. 5 SuperCoins 12/16/2008 at 10:19 PM

    Now i’ve got a bigger problem. After doing the hex editing i have got this problem with ntcompress.

    It just gives me this box when i enter in the needed things.
    It would be nice if you could help.

  6. 6 Kyotita 12/16/2008 at 11:25 PM

    LOL its a good idea if you want to scare the shit outta people….but I was hoping for nude Snake *mumble*

    XD jk

  7. 7 xeroforever 12/17/2008 at 1:59 PM


    Okay coins I know your problem. Had the same problem. But what you wanna do is go back into the guide where it tells you type everything for ntcompress copy that, open up note pad, backspace until there all on the sam line and space to make sure that its all spaced on the same line. Example:

    ntcompress -l -o Link.txt -A4 -t1 -s -H FitLink00new.pac

    ^ Just like that only insert your characters name and stuff it.
    Hope it Helps!

  8. 8 SuperCoins 12/17/2008 at 5:00 PM

    I’ll try that. But do i copy and paste the text into the command box after?

  9. 9 supercoins 12/17/2008 at 6:38 PM

    Wait, it worked. Cool.
    You guys have helped me out the most.
    If i have anymore problems i hope you can help.

  10. 10 supercoins 12/17/2008 at 10:31 PM

    Do you know how to make the converted Brawl models work? I can convert them but the wireframe is messed up and scrambled. Any help?

  11. 11 xeroforever 12/17/2008 at 10:59 PM

    @ coins

    Brawl Models??


  12. 12 SuperCoins 12/17/2008 at 11:35 PM

    You know when you use SSBExtract and in the end you can have 3 folder. Texture, palletes and 3DModels.
    I have already got some 3D models ffrom the internet and i’m looking on obtaining the other ones.
    I want to use 3D models so i can preview my textures before i go though all the hassle of putting them in the game.


  13. 13 SuperCoins 12/17/2008 at 11:40 PM

    Also may i suggest adding a Recent Comments widget(i think thats what there called)

    When i try to convert the .tcs files to .tpl it tells me that there is no alpha layer. How do i make one?

  17. 17 Hyper Jacob 12/20/2008 at 10:35 PM

    use photoshop ;P

  18. 18 SuperCoins 12/22/2008 at 9:26 PM

    @Hyper Jacob
    I do!!!
    Also i figured out the problem, you have to save it as 32 bit.

  19. 19 XeroForever 12/24/2008 at 7:57 PM


    Email BigSharkZ, unfortunately I can’t help you with that, because I have never ran into the problem. I use Corel Paint Shop Pro XI, so I guess it does it for me or something. But, fortunately for you BigSharkZ had the same problem so here is his email: GokuSSJ15@live.com

  20. 20 SuperCoins 12/24/2008 at 11:23 PM

    It’s ok. I figured out how to do it. I’m even a member of Kitty corp. now. Just incase you hadn’t checked.

  21. 21 the smasher 12/26/2008 at 3:48 PM

    hey everybody! i have got my team together only got three people tho and ]EE[ was havin probs with that i can only imagin how many we will have 😦 but at least i got a team now XD

  22. 22 fortyniner235 12/27/2008 at 6:38 AM

    The ]EE[ guide says that there was a “TCS Guide”

    Before we can convert the images back into .tpl files, we have to create a file telling TexConv how to convert each texture. Released with this tutorial was a .txt file named “TCS Guide”. Open it. It should contain the following:

    There wasn’t. Does anybody know how I can get around this?

    Also, the guide says you can skip this I think if you have TCS Edit. Does anybody know where I can get this?

  23. 23 BigSharkZ 12/27/2008 at 5:01 PM


    Making a .tcs is a piece of cake.

    Just copy paste this in notepad

    file 0 = Location of the .tga file
    image 0 = 0, 0, CMPR
    texture 0 = 0, x

    For me it would be, for the eyes opened texture:

    file 0 = C:\Brawl ISO\BigSharkZ’s textures\SHOOP DA WOOP KIRBY!\Eyes1\tex#00_14.tga
    image 0 = 0, 0, CMPR
    texture 0 = 0, x

    Then, save it as a .tcs file.

    Keep the notepad window opened, just change the location and save it as another .tcs, until you’re done doing all of them.

    To convert them, use TexConv.exe. Remember to put it in the same folder as your .tcs files.

    It will ask you for the name of the file, type “name here”.tcs and press Y to confirm.

    Hope I helped.

  24. 24 fortyniner235 12/29/2008 at 6:53 PM

    THANKS! I’ll try this!

  25. 25 BigSharkZ 12/30/2008 at 5:35 AM


    You’re welcome!

  26. 26 wojogamer 01/02/2009 at 2:17 PM

    Where can i find pharrox’es guide?

  27. 27 BigSharkZ 01/02/2009 at 6:29 PM


    On smashboards.

    EDIT: I got the direct link, here it is: http://rapidshare.com/files/127432832/Texture_guide.rar.html

  28. 28 shadowsquid86 01/07/2009 at 3:20 AM

    I’m not sure if this is the best place to put this, but either it’s a site glitch or maybe it’s just me. It says every comment was posted at 6:16, every comment on the site. The date changes, but the time is always 6:16. Is this happening to anyone else, or is it just on my computer?

  29. 29 BigSharkZ 01/07/2009 at 10:47 AM


    You’re right o.o

    I’ll try to see what is doing that..

  30. 30 shadowsquid86 01/07/2009 at 7:24 PM


    Q1 is incorrect as you now have a suggestions page.


    omg cud u do nekked jiglipuf ololol!!1!!!11??!1?

  31. 31 Xpwnage123 01/09/2009 at 2:48 AM

    Um, my game freezes when I load my textures. Any reasons on why this might be? Also, where can I get a copy of WiiScrubber 1.21

  32. 32 XeroForever 01/09/2009 at 1:44 PM


    That means you did something wrong when hexing. As, in you accidently deleted part of the .pac that you shouldn’t of. XD! Hope this helps!

  33. 33 Xpwnage123 01/10/2009 at 1:18 PM


    Any way to tell what I did wrong on the pac? Like the words on the side or something?

  34. 34 Megaron 01/10/2009 at 4:33 PM

    Can’t you manage it so we can use the textures without a backup of the game? Like with a texture swapper, Ocarina, or something like that?

  35. 35 BigSharkZ 01/13/2009 at 6:12 AM


    It’s being worked.

    You can use a USB Gecko to do it but a way to use Gecko OS only is being worked on.

  36. 36 wojogamer 01/19/2009 at 10:16 PM

    i’m in double debt to you guys for leading me to pharrox’s guide and letting us make textures with USB gecko.

  37. 37 Malumvolo 01/20/2009 at 9:41 PM

    There is a program called ASH, it makes this whole process a lot easier. look it up =D

  38. 38 BigSharkZ 01/20/2009 at 10:02 PM


    We already know about it xD.

  39. 39 hackingideas 01/23/2009 at 4:47 PM

    it is possible to replace the 3D models from Brawl instead of texture hacking?
    like replacing Brawl’s Snake with Gordon Freeman, or even using the Mario 64 DS instead of the Mario From Brawl?just a question, because i noticed something, in garry’s mod, the characters use the same type file. that would be the BIGGEST step in hackig history!

  40. 40 SuperCoins 01/23/2009 at 5:15 PM

    I highly doubt that would work because all the animations would be messed up.

  41. 41 LeadofDestruction 01/23/2009 at 5:30 PM

    Is there a tutorial on using ASH? Or is it a self-learning process? I know how to texture using Pharrox’s guide but I heard ASH was a lot easier. Is that true?

  42. 42 SuperCoins 01/23/2009 at 7:16 PM

    ASH is easier but ASH 2.0 doesn’t work that well on some characters. Also it’s easy to use.

  43. 43 LeadofDestruction 01/23/2009 at 9:25 PM

    Is there a tutorial on using ASH?

  44. 44 SuperCoins 01/24/2009 at 9:29 AM

    I think there is a text file included with it on how to use it.

  45. 45 LeadofDestruction 01/24/2009 at 5:03 PM

    Ok, thanks.

  46. 46 Bonzai 01/28/2009 at 1:48 PM

    I need help hacking kirby. I am following ]EE[‘s guide and at the “Repacking the textures without TCS Editor portion. When I make the .tpl files for kirby’s normal eyes they are 9 kb, instead of the normal 3kb. His skin went from 1kb to 16kb. Is he mipmapped or did I make a mistake?

  47. 47 SuperCoins 01/28/2009 at 3:26 PM

    You are 100% doing it wrong. It only has mipmaps if it is SMALLER.

    Also why are you doing it manually? Just use ASH. It’s works perfectly for kirby.

    I’m sure that the only character it doesn’t work for is Sonic and Toon Link.

  48. 48 Bonzai 01/28/2009 at 3:52 PM

    I got the pacs from pharrox and SSBExtract already seperated them. Ash won’t let me skip the first step.

  49. 49 SuperCoins 01/28/2009 at 4:40 PM

    I know, you have to let it do it all for you.

  50. 50 Mystery Artist 01/29/2009 at 8:42 AM

    You are gonna have to help me set up the irc. I have no idea what I am doing at all. I will be on later.

  51. 51 SuperCoins 01/29/2009 at 9:46 AM

    @Mystery Artist
    Sure, i’ve never done it before but i’m sure it’s not that hard.

  52. 52 LeadofDestruction 01/29/2009 at 3:18 PM

    Are you serious? God, Sonic was the person I wanted to do most of my textures for. damn

  53. 53 Bonzai 01/29/2009 at 3:41 PM

    Q. Will these textures ever be released someday?

    A. We will in the future.

    I thought you weren’t going to after ]EE[ shut down. Did I mention epic and/or win?

  54. 54 SuperCoins 01/29/2009 at 4:12 PM

    Well i plan on realising mine. No matter what.

    @One Questione

    You can get the ISO by using the Wii HTTPd webserver, or just download a torrent of it. You can get Pharrox’s guide on Smashboards.

    Or, if you’re too lazy: http://rapidshare.com/files/127432832/Texture_guide.rar.html

  57. 57 One Questione 01/30/2009 at 6:52 PM

  66. 66 Bonzai 01/31/2009 at 3:25 PM

    Igglyboo, you said you could upload textures via the USB Gecko. How do you do this? I cannot wait for Gecko OS 2.0.

  67. 67 One Anwer 01/31/2009 at 3:36 PM

    You cacn find igglyboo here

  68. 68 RoyMaster4 02/03/2009 at 11:04 AM

    You guys could pretty easily release .pcs files like Stack Smash did. We know where to put them now, and how to convert some to .pac and such. (You’ll need to release a couple .pac files, for Pokemon Trainer FS and such…) It should be very easy to use wiiscrubber and right click a pcs file, hit save, and put it somewhere, then upload onto a site and put the link here.

  69. 69 starshadow76 02/03/2009 at 12:56 PM

    Though there’s been a large threat against the community lately were generally not too scared.

    Were moving to a new server just like Stack Smash has. There we should be safe from any server owners getting scared.

    But if worst comes to worst you can always find me at Yourtube or DeviantArt.

    I want to reframe from giving my textures until they’re done. Even if Shark would like me to do otherwise.

    We haven’t even begun to really introduce you guys to what we have in store for you. So it’d be a but weird just throwing out everything we have now…. unfinished…

    I’ll release them when I’m ready.

  70. 70 Ninja / one answer 02/03/2009 at 4:12 PM

    i know i already askes bigsharkz on youtube…

  71. 71 Marcov15 02/06/2009 at 3:31 PM

    One question, when you did the update of Metal Sonic, you said that the only way of fixing his chest was removing the reflection… how do you remove the reflection?

  72. 72 starshadow76 02/06/2009 at 4:30 PM

    You can’t really get rid of it. Sure you can get rid of the reflection but the chest will still show up with an outline.

    You can use transparency on things to make them seem “removed”.

  73. 73 Kr!sp 02/10/2009 at 7:59 PM

    FAQ. where’s a guide.

    srsly everyone who wants these but doesn’t know how wants a guide right? can someone point me in the direction of a guide cause i’ve looked everywhere most sites don’t have them and google just show you pictures of people on forums saying look at t3h pretty texture. i do want these but i have no idea how to get them. help plz?

  74. 74 Tom Gibbons 02/17/2009 at 5:41 PM

    I have a question:

    How do you upload these to the wii? i got textures, brawl iso(domi need to burn it onto a disk?), wiiscrubber1.21

  75. 75 Sonicbje 02/17/2009 at 8:34 PM

    I don’t have a question……..for now.

  76. 76 Sonicbje 02/17/2009 at 8:37 PM

    They removed the websight for the homebrew channel. Now how am I going to get it? I WANT TO MAKE SONIC LOOK LIKE SHADOW. please, is there any other way to get the homebrew channel?

  77. 77 BigSharkZ 02/17/2009 at 10:09 PM


    Talking about a guide, I’m going to upload one on YouTube soon! (It currently has problems but I’ll upload it once it will be fixed)

    @Tom Gibbons

    Just open Wii Scrubber 1.21, be sure to have they key.bin, find your character’s pac and pcs, right-click them, replace them with your own .pac and .pcs, close Wii Scrubber, burn your ISO, play it with CIOSCORP or the backup launcher.


    I’m sorry I don’t really know. I’m sure you will find out another place to get it, just search on google.

  78. 78 stickman 02/18/2009 at 6:10 AM

    Hey SuperCoins, did you ever figure out the 3D Model editing?
    (I sent an e-mail)

  79. 79 Tom Gibbons 02/18/2009 at 7:13 PM


    What kind of disk do i use to burn the iso?

  80. 80 BigSharkZ 02/18/2009 at 7:37 PM

    @Tom Gibbons

    Well I use Fujifilm DVD-R DVDs. It depends. Just don’t use cheap ones.

  81. 81 LVL 58 02/18/2009 at 10:52 PM

    WOO!!! I use the same ones! lol

    They work great!

    By the way, I was wondering if I can join? I really want to be in a group where I can learn/create original texture hacks for brawl, and this seems like the best one I’ve been to. Please?

  82. 82 BigSharkZ 02/19/2009 at 7:09 AM

    XD Nice to see that we use the same epic DVDs.

    As for joining, we currently don’t really need members. But I do need someone who is ready to hex something from 3:30 pm to 10:30 pm, at any time between those hours. ASH seems to hate me and creates a wrong file, apparently (That’s what Star said). I would lol hard if I did create the good files and he could just not test them correctly.

  83. 83 LVL 58 02/19/2009 at 7:50 AM

    Well I got a job interview in a couple hours for a job on the first. I’ll most likely be working from 8-4, then from 4:30 on I should be good to work, just give me a kink to learn to hex and in a few days I should be good to go. !,,!. o(>.<)o

  84. 84 LVL 58 02/19/2009 at 7:52 AM

    my bad… freaking wiimote. You should know what I mean, I know your gonna have a great time making fun of that… lol

  85. 85 LVL 58 02/19/2009 at 2:24 PM

    I got a question. I know brawl needs a double layer DVD-R to put it on, but is it possible to use a double layer DVD+RW so that you can make textures, and re-write the game on the DVD+RW instead of burning a new double layer DVD-R each time?

  86. 86 BigSharkZ 02/19/2009 at 3:47 PM

    Uhh no need to use double-layered dics btw.

    Anyway, you can do that, but a few types of RW work.

    As for the work…I’m sorry but I got a hexer…crap. I apologize.

    But, if you have good art skills, who knows?

  87. 87 LVL 58 02/19/2009 at 5:22 PM

    Eh… its cool, I’ll look around…

  88. 88 LVL 58 02/19/2009 at 5:31 PM

    But its not like your paying me or anything, like everyone else we hack/texture hack for our love of the game. What would one more person hurt? it doesnt really, unless they dont to their part. I’d do my part, buts its cool. I could ask around I suppose…

  89. 89 Bonzai 02/19/2009 at 6:53 PM

    Hey ASH v. 2.2 says that some textures have erronuous colors. What does that mean? It occurs for Toon Link, Metaknight’s eyes and Sonic. I am using Gimp 2.

  90. 90 BigSharkZ 02/20/2009 at 7:13 AM


    Do you save your textures in 32-bit? And by the way, Toon Link’s face, Metaknight’s eyes and Sonic are in +2. Maybe you messed up something about that.

  91. 91 Bonzai 02/20/2009 at 3:48 PM


    Ike’s Hair is +2, and that worked. Lucas’s stick doesn’t work either. I am on XP, if that matters.

  92. 92 Bonzai 02/22/2009 at 10:01 AM

    Then again ]EE[ got Ike’s hair to work before knowing how XD. What are the steps again for +2?

  93. 93 Tom Gibbons 02/22/2009 at 7:52 PM

    Can you put a link for the ISO?

  94. 94 starshadow76 02/22/2009 at 8:30 PM

    No we may certainly not. Were in no way going to simple give out Nintendo’s hard work.

  95. 95 Bonzai 02/23/2009 at 6:34 PM

    Actually I think it may be the lack of a 32-bit texture that is causing the problem. Thank you for answering my question.

  96. 96 Davyinatoga 02/23/2009 at 10:37 PM

    Darn, so you guys haven’t found a way to change actual models and animation/there isn’t a way/ it’ll just be too much work?

  97. 97 Omega Ridley 02/24/2009 at 10:37 AM

    how do you edit stages? thanks in advance

  98. 98 BigSharkZ 02/24/2009 at 4:00 PM

    @Omega Ridley

    Same way you hoax characters.

    Get the .pac, drag on lz77ex, get the .out, rename to .pac, use ASH, get the tga, edit them, and so on.

    i get it now. thanks again.

  100. 100 BigSharkZ 02/25/2009 at 6:35 PM

    @Omega Ridley

    No problem.

  101. 101 Len-Sho 03/05/2009 at 7:04 PM

    Hi, I would like to know how to get some Textures you have created and how can I actually use them in Brawl. What software/hardware do I need and how to use it (for both: using textures and create textures)? I would like to have Fierce Deity Link, Shadow Queen, Ganon’s Puppet Zelda, Dry Bowser, Mr. L, Shadow Mario (with red eyes), Shadow, Metal Sonic, Sonic the Werehog, Shiny Charizard, Shadow Lugia, Dark MetaKnight, Dark Samus, SA-X, Palutena (on Peach or Zelda), Omega Ridley (on Ridley), Shiny Rayquaza. You don’t have some of these yet tough. Your help will be highly appreciated

  102. 102 BigSharkZ 03/05/2009 at 8:25 PM


    Go on my YouTube channel and look at my tutorial 😛

  103. 103 Len-Sho 03/05/2009 at 8:37 PM

    Ok, Thanks!

  104. 104 starshadow76 03/05/2009 at 8:53 PM

    Major Spoilerz in your post I see.

  105. 105 Moosehuntr 03/05/2009 at 10:09 PM


    Same way you hoax characters.

    Get the .pac, drag on lz77ex, get the .out, rename to .pac, –>use ASH,<– get the tga, edit them, and so on.

    you can’t use ash on stages

  106. 106 Bodyc 03/07/2009 at 8:26 AM

    this is very useful to us.

    Thank you

  107. 107 galacticknight 03/14/2009 at 6:37 PM

    can someone give me a link to an iso of brawl? and the key.bin for wiiscrubber 1.21?

  108. 108 KingKombat 03/15/2009 at 10:35 AM

    Hey, how did you guys get sonic’s eyes to work properly? I mean like I tried tex hacking Sonic, and everything else ws fine except his eyes, when the whites of his eyes were just…black. How can I fix that?

  109. 109 BigSharkZ 03/15/2009 at 12:16 PM


    I’m not sure, since I never changed his eyes. Sorry. I could always ask for someone else.

  110. 110 KingKombat 03/15/2009 at 3:44 PM

    Someone actually told me I shouldn’t be doing this If I need help…
    But I just wanted to fix up my texture, so I do need some sort of help. Thanks for responding, anyways.

  111. 111 BigSharkZ 03/15/2009 at 4:52 PM


    No problem.

  112. 112 LVL 58 03/20/2009 at 4:09 PM

    I got a question about sub space emmissary textures, I cant get them to work, I’m trying to get shiny rayquaza, and I put it in Adventure, and it wont load it, so what am I doing wrong?

    Here is the name of the file I’m using 920101.pac, If its wrong let me know.

  113. 113 BigSharkZ 03/20/2009 at 4:23 PM

    @LVL 58

    Wtf is that name? XD.

    I never did bosses but that name looks weird.

  114. 114 LVL 58 03/20/2009 at 4:29 PM


    Its supposed to be the sub space emissary texture file for Rayquaza in the lake stage, at least that’s what it said when I downloaded it.

    it said Shiny Rayquaza, and I extracted it, and it has that, so I just put it on my SD card in the place it said to put it, and it doesn’t work.

    Everything else works fine, all the characters, item textures. just the boss textures don’t work for some reason.

  115. 115 BigSharkZ 03/20/2009 at 4:37 PM

    @LVL 58

    I dunno. Do you have the latest version of the codes?

  116. 116 LVL 58 03/20/2009 at 4:38 PM


    its just the series of 3 or 4 codes that works for all the textures on the SD card.

    so idk whats up, I dont got a list of the files that are in RSBE iso so i cant cross reference it and fix it if its wrong.

  117. 117 BigSharkZ 03/20/2009 at 4:39 PM

    @LVL 58

    I’ll look in the ISO to see if I can find the name of the file.

  118. 118 BigSharkZ 03/20/2009 at 4:40 PM

    @LVL 58

    Wait, in what directory is your pac? It would help me to know where it is xD.

  119. 119 LVL 58 03/20/2009 at 4:42 PM

    Cool, thanks a ton.

    Oh by the way, I got the texture files, but they are all in .TGA format and separated into a different parts, like legs, face, body, all that

    so how do I make them into a .pcs file?

    I’d really like to start texture hacking brawl since I noone has to burn an iso anymore.

  120. 120 BigSharkZ 03/20/2009 at 4:43 PM

    @LVL 58

    Meh, I don’t even know if ASH can do bosses.

    Could you answer my previous question?

  121. 121 starshadow76 03/20/2009 at 4:48 PM

    This is what the IRC is for >_>

    Constant post.

  122. 122 BigSharkZ 03/20/2009 at 4:49 PM


    Why do you come in here just to complain?

    I’m just answering people. This is the FAQ question and I made it so I could help out people.

    No one goes on the IRC so I don’t care.

  123. 123 LVL 58 03/20/2009 at 4:54 PM

    I’ll put up a picture link, sorry I was browsing for a fix.

  124. 124 LVL 58 03/20/2009 at 4:58 PM

  125. 125 BigSharkZ 03/20/2009 at 4:59 PM

    @LVL 58

    The directory seems to be good.

    I have no idea, sorry.

  126. 126 LVL 58 03/20/2009 at 5:03 PM

    Would the file be corrupt? I got it from Stack Smash’s database.

  127. 127 LVL 58 03/20/2009 at 5:11 PM

    Hey, can you Ctrl+F the iso and search for the file name? and it should come up with any that has that number order in it no matter where it is in the file name.

    Just to check if its different then whats there.

  128. 128 BigSharkZ 03/20/2009 at 5:26 PM

    @LVL 58

    I know where the file is and there’s no such thing as Ctrl+F the ISO XD.

  129. 129 LVL 58 03/20/2009 at 5:34 PM

    You cant crack it open and search the files inside it? I can do it with iso’s on my comp.

  130. 130 starshadow76 03/20/2009 at 6:10 PM

    not complaining, telling it is. 😛

  131. 131 LVL 58 03/20/2009 at 6:15 PM

    Well… I don’t do IRC, I hate IRC in fact.

    And an FAQ isn’t only for posted questions, its to take questions that haven’t been asked as well.

  132. 132 starshadow76 03/20/2009 at 6:32 PM

    Yeah but this is a wordpress. Not an IRC 😛

    So if you want your answers lrn to luv.

  133. 133 LVL 58 03/20/2009 at 6:34 PM


    I luv you starshadow76! ❤ =D

    XD lmao.

  134. 134 Weegee 03/20/2009 at 7:38 PM

    does F.A.Q. stands for ”Fucking Ask Questions”???

  135. 135 LVL 58 03/20/2009 at 7:39 PM

    Yes, yes it does!

  136. 136 BigSharkZ 03/20/2009 at 7:40 PM


    No, it stands for Fuck Ass Q-cucumber.

  137. 137 LVL 58 03/20/2009 at 7:41 PM

  140. 140 Omega Ridley 03/21/2009 at 9:00 AM

    when are you guys gonna release more textures?

  141. 141 Bonzai 03/21/2009 at 11:05 AM

    You might want to update this, as you have made a naked texture.
    Also, how do you use Paint.NET to add pallettes?

  142. 142 BigSharkZ 03/21/2009 at 12:13 PM

    I will update it.

    And I index with photoshop.

  143. 143 Bonzai 03/21/2009 at 12:18 PM

    Oh, I see.

  144. 144 Weegee 03/22/2009 at 9:19 PM

    does tabuu has any textures?
    if it does, make a red Tabuu and his stage (change the blue to red)
    and you have an ault Giygas
    BTW : did you know the similarities of the ”Ungraspable attack” of giygas
    and the ”Wave attack” of Tabuu???

  145. 145 BigSharkZ 03/22/2009 at 9:35 PM


    Lol, he does have a texture.

    If ASH can make bosses, then I’ll try to see if I can edit him.

  146. 146 ChReNiC 03/25/2009 at 10:38 PM

    Hey, uh, I may sound like an idiot, but, are all these textures supported by the GeckoOS 1.7. method?

  147. 147 BigSharkZ 03/26/2009 at 5:12 AM

    Yes ChReNiC.

  148. 148 ChReNiC 03/26/2009 at 3:40 PM

    And the music? ’cause I can’t seem to get it working.

  149. 149 BigSharkZ 03/26/2009 at 8:22 PM


    No, obviously.

  150. 150 ChReNiC 03/26/2009 at 10:03 PM

    Blar, then how do I get the music working?

    I have it in this:


    What am I doing wrong?

  151. 151 ChReNiC 03/31/2009 at 11:26 AM

    The code manager doesn’t let me use trhe texture combo because it is too “long”. Help?

  152. 152 TehHock513 03/31/2009 at 5:35 PM

    Um, this may sound n00bish, but, where is your download page. I don’t see any tab that says downloads.

  153. 153 ChReNiC 03/31/2009 at 5:41 PM


    It’s right under the Blog Tab.

  154. 154 quik2288 04/04/2009 at 6:24 PM

    hey guys me n my friend have the textures hacks but we cant see eachother online with them. do we both have to have the same exact codes? example if im shadow(sonic) and he is roy(ike) do i have to have the roy(ike) code on my wii as well to see his? or does both of us having gecko n homebrew enough? cuz we cant see eachother

  155. 155 Bonzai 04/04/2009 at 6:45 PM

    I think someone said you needed the .PAC files as well

  156. 156 quik2288 04/04/2009 at 9:37 PM

    we both need it?

  157. 157 quik2288 04/04/2009 at 10:10 PM

    cuz u kno not every character has a pac file so idk were to get it

  158. 158 Bonzai 04/05/2009 at 6:19 PM

    For that, you need Iz77ex
    Drag the pcs onto the program and wait.I’d assume you would both need it.
    Sorry for the late reply.

  159. 159 Bonzai 04/05/2009 at 6:20 PM

    sorry wrong link

  160. 160 Bonzai 04/06/2009 at 6:35 PM

    Hey, I am trying to create a stage. I have the 001.bin.out and am trying to use ntcompress to compress it to 001.bin. Problem is, I can’t get it to work. I followed the ]EE[ guide and even tried to convert a .pac to a .pcs. No file shows up.

  161. 161 Omega Ridley 04/06/2009 at 10:09 PM


    here just use this little tool:


  162. 162 Bonzai 04/07/2009 at 6:56 AM

    No, I am using it to hex. Anyways Stickman helped me.

  163. 163 TehHock 04/12/2009 at 2:42 AM


    Thanks, garg, I’m such an idiot…

  164. 164 person 04/13/2009 at 7:32 PM

    Can somebody give me a list of everything I would need to hack textures? I am thinking about starting.

  165. 165 omgitsns9 04/26/2009 at 7:49 PM

    i need a guide on hwo to use stage texture hacks

  166. 166 Omega Ridley 04/28/2009 at 10:47 PM

    how did you guys edit the title screen in brawl to clash?

  167. 167 fortyniner235 05/02/2009 at 7:15 PM

    Hey guys. I was wondering if one of you could tell me how to put custom music in brawl. Thanks.

  168. 168 BigSharkZ 05/02/2009 at 7:59 PM


    Look at my tutorial on YouTube.


    It’s like characters.

    @Omega Ridley

    I forgot which pac it is. I think it’s in common5.pac.


    You convert MP3s to BRSTMs then you put them on your ISO.

  169. 169 fortyniner235 05/03/2009 at 10:13 AM

    1. How do you do that?
    2. more importantly, what do you name the brstms? I think they’re all named something like A12, so how do I know where to put it?

  170. 170 neontogepi 05/03/2009 at 1:33 PM

    @ fortyniner235.
    bigsharkz did a video on how to, check his youtube account.

  171. 171 sonicfreak360 05/06/2009 at 10:24 PM

    err, i think this is a stupid question, but can anyone join ur website?

  172. 172 falcon pawnch 05/27/2009 at 10:25 PM

    This is a stupid question, but where do i put final smash textures?

  173. 173 Guest 05/28/2009 at 12:47 AM

    @ Falcon Pawnch

    In the character folders. Be sure they’re named as Fit(charactername)Final.pac

  174. 174 Yoshi6852 06/05/2009 at 3:39 PM

    I don’t know why but the gimp does not work on my computer. I konw i’m using the right one for my computer (i’ve got vista and the one i’m using says it’s for XP and up) and it frezes every time I try to load it while it’s starting up

  175. 175 Yoshi6852 06/05/2009 at 4:06 PM

    Nevermind I’m using paint.NET now works better. After I make the texture how do I make it useable?

  176. 176 Yoshi6852 06/05/2009 at 7:07 PM

    Grrrrrr. I’m using paint.net and i’ve edited a kirby but I keep getting a message that says: “Error: The image you have provided isn’t valid. It will be ignored.”
    What do I do now did I make a texture that dosen’t work?

  177. 177 Bonzai 06/08/2009 at 6:33 PM

    A. Some are already are.

    Please omit one of the “ares”

  178. 178 shukakusand 06/09/2009 at 7:19 PM

    Does anyone know what file Meta Ridley or Ridley is called?
    I know its in the stages directory but which file?

  179. 179 stickman 06/13/2009 at 11:27 PM

    My last attempt lol.
    Can we exchange links? You may already be familiar with my old stuff and know who I am. I can make sure you have a spot to advertise on my site.

  180. 180 BigSharkZ 06/14/2009 at 12:10 AM


    Sure, sorry if I haven’t seen all your messages. We may be many but only I care about most comments. Reading thousands of them is kind of hard, though XD.

    I’ll add the link.

  181. 181 Bonzai 06/14/2009 at 7:48 AM

    Actually, most of his messages were caught in the spam filter. Regardless, yay!

  182. 182 stickman 06/14/2009 at 8:43 AM

    Thanks, I’ll add you right away as well. And don’t worry about it. I forget sometimes how big your site really is. 😀

  183. 183 thor 06/14/2009 at 5:07 PM

    i tried to use the giygas final destination and it froze the game and corrupted the wii memory so i dont have luigi’s mansion anymore. how do i fix it?

  184. 184 yoshi6852 06/17/2009 at 5:07 PM

    Luigi’s mantion wont load for you too?

  185. 185 Tony Wolf 06/17/2009 at 5:28 PM

    @ thor

    This happened to me too (not with giygas final destination) , I used the Luigi’s Mansion My Music Reset code and worked again perfectly.

  186. 186 yoshi6852 06/18/2009 at 8:48 PM

    First off My music reset code?

    Seccondly also delfino plaza works but has no music should the same code worke for that?

  187. 187 Tony Wolf 06/18/2009 at 10:32 PM


    Yes, My music reset code for Luigi´s Mansion.

    The same goes for Delfino Plaza.

    Can I post the codes here? (I´m kinda new :S)

  188. 188 Jamie 06/19/2009 at 1:15 PM

    Have the naruto and akatsuki textures ever been released?
    If so where can I find them?

  189. 189 Shukakusand 06/19/2009 at 1:22 PM


    No, not yet but they will be sometime next week.

  190. 190 yoshi6852 06/19/2009 at 6:55 PM

    Yeah I don’t know the two codes if He can’t post them here then i’ll have him e-mail me them

  191. 191 yoshi6852 06/21/2009 at 1:10 PM

    I ofund the codes on my own and they worked. Does anyone konw why luigi’s mantion delphino plaza and newly descovered mushroomy kingdome can be glitiched by Texture hacks?

  192. 192 thor 06/21/2009 at 4:53 PM

    yeah i need the codes too

  193. 193 thor 06/21/2009 at 4:54 PM

    whered you find them?

  194. 194 Tony Wolf 06/22/2009 at 1:20 AM


    Not only texture codes, any kind of code may glitch the levels.


    I found them on WiiPals, in the ocarina codes section, page 23 😀

  195. 195 Lincolns Beard 06/23/2009 at 12:53 AM

    Okay, so, is there anyway to do this on a Mac? I enjoy doing all this homebrewy stuff, but so far I haven’t found a way to do this on Mac. Probably ’cause I haven’t actually looked, but if I tried to figure it out by myself, I would probably inadvertently asplode my Wii. Thanks much!

  196. 196 SUP3R64 06/23/2009 at 4:28 PM

    Sorry to ask but i was being Luigi in classic mode and i put the difficulty on hard and i had 5 stock when i got to master hand i vs crazy hand at the same time does anyone know how this hppend
    note: i didnt die until i got to master hand and crazy hand

  197. 197 BigSharkZ 06/23/2009 at 4:34 PM


    Lmao, you never knew about this? It’s like in melee. If you finish the mode on normal/hard/intense without losing a life or under a set time, you will get to battle both.

  198. 198 SUP3R64 06/23/2009 at 4:44 PM

    OK cool thanks for telling me. 😀

  199. 199 thor 06/23/2009 at 7:34 PM

    @Tony wolf

    I dont see an ocarina codes section on the wii pals site. Is it in the forums, or am i just on the wrong site?

  200. 200 Tony Wolf 06/23/2009 at 8:35 PM


    In the forums (my bad) Super Smash Brothers Brawl/Ocarina Codes (Pg. 23)

  201. 201 thor 06/23/2009 at 9:00 PM

    YES!!! Thanks! now i can get luigi’s mansion back. BTW, if everybody is getting codes from phantomwings, then what is his site?

  202. 202 yoshi6852 06/24/2009 at 12:20 PM

    thor I searched on google and I found the codes on smashboards.

    Also back on to texture hacking i’m using ash and have made my file but I can’t figure out how to make the files useable with the seccond part. It keeps telling me that the file is not correct or something like that what do I do?

  203. 203 Kiwi 06/24/2009 at 1:40 PM

    Wait… does this mean you have to have the Homebrew chanell for all these texture hacks? =(

  204. 204 SUP3R64 06/25/2009 at 7:14 PM

    @ Kiwi
    Yes, without homebrew channel you can’t do anything but play super smash bros brawl and try glitches.

  205. 205 Maya 06/26/2009 at 1:58 PM

    Alright I have a problem. How do you change Ike’s eye color? I keep getting an errorneous colors error or w/e.

  206. 206 omgitsns9 06/26/2009 at 2:07 PM


    when u open the file does it have a +2 or +1 at teh end of it? if so, you’ll have to color the area around the eye magenta. 1st go to image > Color table and enter in this for the color red-255 green-0 blue-255, then you you have to select teh black part of teh image with teh magic wand tool, and color it in with that color using the paintbrush. then when youre done, go to Image > indexed color and when teh window comes up, click okay. then that should work

  207. 207 nuclear432 07/15/2009 at 12:43 PM

    The second question is just dawm STUPID……

  208. 208 nuclear432 07/15/2009 at 1:00 PM

    Can someone tell me how to do the strap loader texures?

  209. 209 yoshi6852 07/15/2009 at 7:05 PM

    Hey i’m having real problems with my texture hack i’ve created it but I can’t get step two of ASH to work i’ve tried everything I could think of. If no one can figure out what’s wrong with it can I e-mail the texture to someone and see if they can fix the problem?

  210. 210 Bonzai 07/15/2009 at 7:32 PM

    Get StrapEn.pac (Fit Artifex and Power Nation have one available) and run it through ASH like normal. (Directory is menu > strap > StrapEn.pac)

    What’s it telling you? Who are you editing anyway?

  211. 211 yoshi6852 07/16/2009 at 10:19 AM

    I’m doing a kirby edit and it’s saying the image you provided is not vaid and therfor wiill be ignored. I was able to do step one find but step 2 will not work.

  212. 212 yoshi6852 07/17/2009 at 8:14 PM

    I’ve also tried editing custom stage set 01 but it is not working either same message idk what i’m doing wrong

  213. 213 yoshi6852 07/19/2009 at 11:22 PM

    i fixed it. I was missing a program and had the files in the wrong set up

  214. 214 Puflwiz 07/20/2009 at 4:57 PM

    Ya i wanna do this but i have no idea how… i have the homebrew, SSBB (legit) but i dont know what else to do

    There´s a guide steb by step in MeowMix.

  216. 216 Pocho guy 07/22/2009 at 1:30 PM

    hey guys, im new to making my own textures. id like to know how you put a design on a character. like for example, on olimars arm, is his hocotate stamp thing. now id like to put a different design in its place. how do i do so?

  217. 217 Puflwiz 07/26/2009 at 7:46 PM

    im trying to find this guide you speak of but no luck

  218. 218 yoshi6852 07/31/2009 at 8:56 PM

    Where do you put Kirby Hat textures?

  219. 219 Wtfxup 07/31/2009 at 11:23 PM

    The FAQ says I do not need a modded Wii… But the Texture guide says I do. So which is is?

  220. 220 yoshi6852 08/01/2009 at 12:35 PM

    @ Wtfxup

    you need the HBC and gecko os neither require you to open up the system

  221. 221 CouldUseSomeHelp 08/01/2009 at 1:51 PM

    Your textures are making me relive brawl and I’m happy for ever touching my wii again…, but a major problem I have is some situation with random freezing in the game due to these textures. I DO rename the files according to the costume value i wanted and as wished, all the textures show perfectly with the choices I made. With all the freezing going on, I followed this really hassling method of avoiding it (played with one texture per map, waited 5 seconds per character choice and 30 seconds before each match), but the frozen screen and awful sound would show up eventually.

    This also happens with a friend I have, so I’m sure we’re not the only ones with this problem. I don’t have “an ISO of brawl and the backup loader” and do not know what they are or why i need them. I also did not use this Wiiscrubber 1.21 and Lz77Ex I hear about. Seems like nobody has explained the full purposes of these apps and i don’t want to waste time getting them for no solution.

    It’s a lot to read but I’d be grateful if anybody would help me through this situation. This texture thing really helps me love the game. Thanks.

  222. 222 yoshi6852 08/01/2009 at 3:25 PM

    Assuming all the files are 100% correct make sure the file is compatiable with Gecko os. Becuse Stages like Gygas Destanation will freeze and can mess up the game but that can be fixed. Go into my music and click on every single stage if the game frezes when you click on a stage it means the music was messed up and can be fiexed by using the My music reset codes (I posted them on the music page) If that does not work make sure the files are set up like this (i’ll use ike as an example)


    Make sure ur not naming it fitike00.pac.pac if it’s allready a .pac file type you don’t allways need to put the .pac at the end.

  223. 223 CouldUseSomeHelp 08/01/2009 at 5:58 PM

    Thanks, but the my music idea didn’t seem to work. I had never hacked any music files if that was what you thought. Just several characters, a few stages, and a stage builder stage and parts. No file extensions were repeated btw. I sometimes could get through a full match with textures on and other times I can’t. It is just random freezing here and there.

    I tried something new by removing all the TGA files on the card, but I had the same results if not worse results than before. I’ve only tested them in basic brawl matches and in the training room. What I’ve noticed is that some of my texture files are PAC files despite being on characters that supposedly do not need them (Snake and Link). Could that be part of the problem? Or could it be the 3.5.1 file patch–should I use an earlier file patch if I’m not interested in hacking music?

    GeckoOS 1.9.1
    2gig sd card
    gct with replay codes and stage builder codes

  224. 224 CouldUseSomeHelp 08/01/2009 at 6:36 PM

    But like I mentioned, should I get Lz77ex and Wii Scrubber 1.2.1 or will this be a waste of my time. Also despite this FAQ telling me that I need an “ISO of brawl and the backup loader” I never found these requirements on other guides. Is this just an alternative method to Gecko or is this a need in itself?

  225. 225 CouldUseSomeHelp 08/01/2009 at 6:45 PM

    Wait I’m guessing the wiiscrubber, iso, lz77ex and the backup loader is just for creating the textures. If so, sorry for that double post. Better yet, sorry for this triple post…

  226. 226 sparky 08/01/2009 at 7:21 PM

    lol how do you do attack effects ex. link electric slash

  227. 227 yoshi6852 08/02/2009 at 9:51 PM

    If it’s textures you made that are freezing the game then it’s most likely something wrong with the textures

  228. 228 hallowvortex 08/06/2009 at 9:18 PM

    how would I put a Kirby hat in the game?

    It’s about the Brawl+
    who is the . pac coming in each character along with the brawl +? if i deleted will occur something?


  232. 232 fireking220 10/22/2009 at 11:07 PM

    the .pac file for every character contains there moveset data and physics for that character. They r altered in a way so the character has less landing lag and moves faster. Attacks flow more smoothly also. So in short no don’t remove them.

    Hi, I wanted to ask about the names on the textures. Sometimes, when I name them (Fit______XX.psc), the numbers don’t correspond to the correct placements. I’m not exactly sure why, but some go where they are supposed to, and some just don’t. I was wondering if every character is slightly different, or if I’m doing something wrong.

    Thank you for any help.

  240. 240 TheGreenAlloy 11/24/2009 at 1:44 PM

    Check here when you insert new ones ^,^ : http://kittycorp.freecp.net/index.php?topic=6.0
    Just CTRL-F and type in the character. Hope this helps.

  244. 244 Isaac 12/08/2009 at 5:00 PM

    And how do you convert from .pac to .pcs.???

    I’,m using a tool called Iz77ex in order to get a pac from a pcs, but it doesn’t work creating pcs files.

    You can download brawlbox and open the file and resave it

    how to download texture

  248. 248 Eva 12/26/2009 at 4:47 PM

    hey guys I was hoping to get information on how to do this.

    Q. Do I need a modchip to use the textures? If no, what do I need?

    A. No, you do not need any modchip but that doesn’t mean you cannot use one to texture hack. What you need though, is the homebrew channel, an ISO of brawl and the backup loader. For more information about how to install/get those, ask me.

    I need that more information please!!!

    send to evasothrowed@gmail.com if you get the chance. Much Appreciated

  250. 250 skactus 01/04/2010 at 5:33 PM

    i cant seem to get my wii to read the texture hacks. my code manager has the only downloaded code i can find for brawl, but the code doesnt include texture hacks. it has texture swapping, character/texture swapping, and costume replacement. i tried the first two, and they did not work. does the last one sound like the right one? its really confusing to me and i cant get it to work.

  251. 251 Kangaroogreen 01/07/2010 at 9:19 PM

    just wondering but in Brawlbox I was trying to make a playable koopa and it works but whenever I try to make it walk it just plays the walking animation and it dosent go anywhere. any help?

    I have a problem…
    The textures work perfectly, they look awesome, but after a match, it just crashes, and gives a black screen. Please help! 😮

  253. 253 Lexx 01/16/2010 at 6:40 AM

    @ Dawngaward

    If I recall correctly, that’s a CSS problem.

  254. 254 Dawngaward 01/16/2010 at 10:29 AM

    @ Lexx
    Oh ok. What can I do about it? 😮

  255. 255 Zeldakid 01/17/2010 at 11:08 AM

    I’m having the same problem but instead of a black screen it freezes at “Ready for next brawl” and I have to do the force shut-down thing (hold power button for 5 seconds). I’ve been searching the net for about month but I got nothing, can someone have any theories of what’s wrong.

  256. 256 epicZERO 01/18/2010 at 7:36 PM

    Hey, im not asking much, but i need a favor. If someone can get ike to have brown hair and green eyes, then i can handle the rest.

    now i have read most of this faq, and saw you can convert pcs files to pac, but the website was down. if you cant do the above, then i need you to download and convert the pcs file in this website. i can work around my normal problems if you can do this.


    might not be much of a request for some of you, but if you can do it, it will be very apreciated.

    my youtube account is ZEROxRisingChaos. i will be awaiting responces…


  257. 257 epicZERO 01/19/2010 at 1:52 PM

    different question though… How do you create a CSS? I got bored and created a prototype on my laptop. a direct url would be nice, but if not possible, ill take whatever hints you got.

    thanks in advance,

    Hi, since this the F.A.Q section, I would like to ask, is there a way to put a moveset hack seperated to one color change of a character? Or does it have to be used by all color changes. Let’s say I have a textureof Fierce Deity Marth and I want to seperate the moveset I downloaded from here called Assassin Marth I think it was, just for him and not the other textures. Is that possible?

  259. 259 fat kirby 01/30/2010 at 3:46 PM

    @ fireking220 u helped me last time can u tell me how 2 texture hack and change other characters moves

  260. 260 fat kirby 01/30/2010 at 5:37 PM

    @shark, can u teach me how to texture hack

  261. 261 epicZERO 02/03/2010 at 8:52 PM

    i would like a favor done. I know its not right to take from other people and change it, but i would like someone to edit a moveset for sonic that i have. If i remember right, its called “Chaos Controll” something or other, and its really cool and all, but there are 2 things i want changed. i want the taunts not to summon items, and the spikes done like shadow. there may be a few of the same name, so if you can edit these 2 things and would like to help, ill upload it to my mediafire account. everything else is fine, but for machinima purposes, these 2 things would help. write me back on my youtube account. ZEROxRisingChaos

    thanks in advance.

  264. 264 fireking220 02/10/2010 at 11:44 AM

    u cant, some textures, especially face textures (except snakes), r mirrored. There is a way to make it not miror but it is complicated and involves hexing and crap and even if u manage to do it the other half of his face will just be white and have no textures on it.

    so no

  283. 283 Escargot 02/16/2010 at 3:05 PM

    @XZedkiel: With Player X Character Modifier. Change XX to one of this to play as them.

    2E ZakoRed (Red Alloy)
    2F ZakoBlue (Blue Alloy)
    30 ZakoYellow (Yellow Alloy)
    31 ZakoGreen (Green Alloy)

    You´ll also need this code: 0477F8EC 60000000
    It allows the alloys to have victory poses, but it doesn´t work on PAL.

    My question: I gave FitSheik00.pac Link’s model and textures and it works if I start with Sheik. I can also change to Zelda without problems, but if I change from Sheik to Zelda the game freezes. Help please!

  284. 284 Escargot 02/16/2010 at 3:06 PM

    Sorry, mistake; the game freezes if I change from Zelda to Sheik. Sheik to Zelda works.

    @Escargot and xANDER
    this is not a “talk to eachother” section. this is a faq. ask questions on “how to”, or “what is” crap. no one else wants to see your email or know that your adding eachother. no one gives a fuck. your takin up space, so take your conversation elsewhere.

    now my faq question.
    I got smash attacks the other day and have no clue what im doing. is there anyway possible to do a “Frame by Frame” PSA?
    that would be a hell of alot easier than punching in numbers and selections if i cant see what im doing.

    I added textures for the firstime in a big pack,

    I’m not well conditioned in this practice, but I’ve been using brawlbox and have ran into a snag. I can’t seem to get any texture to work with Bowser that I make. Anything I make doesn’t show up on Brawl even though most others that I’ve downloaded work. Is there some prejudice concerning Bowser that I’m unaware of?

  295. 295 Yoshi6852 02/20/2010 at 4:52 PM

    Is there a guide out there for how to make the stages like this?

    i got it to appear in brawlbox, but my friend tested it for me and it was pure white, i tested it and it froze. i just want the character to appear without motionect or psa to go with it. what do i need to do? do i need to rename bones or something like that?

  307. 307 fireking220 03/11/2010 at 2:40 PM


    use the bone adder tool to add bones to the model ur putting over the character so the number of bones exceeds the number of bones for the character the model will go over.

    like for my Deoxys I added bones to that model so it surpasses the number of jiggs bones (76 bones to 70 bones)

    here is the page with a link to the bone added http://www.smashboards.com/showthread.php?t=263127

    the bone adder has been known to cause texture problems too just an fyi.

    say i want sonic’s model to be sonic and shadow to have a shadow model so i can pose them at the same time?

  309. 309 fireking220 03/13/2010 at 2:22 AM

    yes there is a way but u have to edit the vertex points for the costume to do so. So in ur case u will have to edit sonics spines to look like shadows spines on one costume then u can pose them together.

  310. 310 galacticknight 03/13/2010 at 12:17 PM


    you mean the vertex points in sonic.pac be cause i downloaded rosalina.pac and in brawl box it looks like her but when i put it in brawl it was still peach not even the texture changed after wards i added the motion file and it till wasn’t working any idea what went wrong?

  311. 311 galacticknight 03/14/2010 at 8:20 PM

    never mind about my peach/rosalina problem i fixed that. i under stan how it works now so i all i gotta do is wait for a vertex edited shadow .pac and .pcs to be released

    Is there a way to replace Marth’s sword with Peach’s umbrella?

    Hey, I’m new to replacing files on the SD card. Right now, I’m trying to replace a Viewtiful Joe vertex hack over Captain Falcon, but it only came with the .pcs . I tried putting it in Captain Falcon’s folder, but when I loaded up the game, the regular Captain Falcon came up. How do I apply the vertex hack to Captain Falcon? Please help.

  318. 318 Maverick-Pro 03/27/2010 at 5:35 PM

    Also, I wouold like to know how to set different PSA characters to different character slots (AKA character colors) I’ve seen it done before on Youtube, but someone told me coding is required to do this. I am not experienced in coding, so I would like help on this problem too.

    did you rename it, FitCaptain00.pac or 01.pac or whatever?

    must… learn… how… to texture hack…

  322. 322 Escargot 04/04/2010 at 12:40 PM

    The game freezes if I replace Pokémon Trainer´s model with Ike´s model. What do I have to do? I use BrawlBox by the way.

  323. 323 Toupe454 04/06/2010 at 4:06 PM

    When using textures do you need both the .pcs and .pac. I downloaded a Mr. L texture that came with both, used just the pcs, and it worked fine.

  324. 324 epicZERO 04/09/2010 at 4:06 PM

    lulz! someone make a noobsmashhackers.com!

  325. 325 galacticknight 04/11/2010 at 8:43 PM

    what program do u guyz use for the vertex hacks?
    I tried to use blender but the set up is too hard for me to use.

    i’d do 3ds max but it to much info to fill in just to get a demo.

    i have another program called gamestudio a6 which can edit 3ds files but the das donkey program always screws up when i use it and blender.

  326. 326 BlameCanada 04/12/2010 at 11:54 PM

    how do u put models and textures in brawl? please tell me preferablly by pming me on my youtube- DelonAwesome or just on here

  327. 327 Lexx 04/13/2010 at 10:47 AM

    BlameCanada, just put the file into the same folder that you put textures. (Although vertex hacks belong on only one costume.)

  328. 328 BlameCanada 04/13/2010 at 4:36 PM

    do i have to rename the file for models? should i delete the original character? for example delete sonic and the put in maskelos shadow file (then rename file?) ugh this would be much simpilar if i saw a video =/

  329. 329 zigheart 04/24/2010 at 8:30 AM

    i’m new to verticing, i found out how to open the files in blender and move the vertices, (kinda :/, can’t find an actuall tutorial for that part) but when i finnish with the vertice hack and insert it on the model it explodes with infinate lines! i don’t know what i’m doing wrong, can any one help? if u need me to i can send a pic of the problem.

  333. 333 epicZERO 04/28/2010 at 11:32 AM

    Everyone knows of the Ichigo port on Mk, right? anyone know how to make the mask visible with his hallow eyes? remove the polygons 4,6,and 20.
    also, without the psa, his hands and feet are invisible (if i remember right. might need to test that to be sure). anyone know how to fix that?

  334. 334 epicZERO 08/10/2010 at 7:29 PM

    wow… its been a while and im still the last one to post something here.

    ok, im going to ask the most stupid question that i might get yelled at for, but i have to ask… there are wii emulators out there, is there a way to activate hacks in an emulator? or is there a separate emulator, specificly for hacking?
    (currently no access to wii, that is why im asking)

  335. 335 Sunshine Man 08/24/2010 at 9:48 PM

    Hey, I downloaded MASTERLINKX’S brawl texture pack, and his brtsms, installed homebrew channel on my friends wii. Now, I’m just confused on where to place the files on my SD Card. Like where i do put Gecko, or the other rar files?

  336. 336 Irock 08/30/2010 at 6:48 PM

    Could you make a tab on this website to watch images of your work? So I don’t have to search your whole blog

  337. 337 kingofsoulsfromboomansion 10/28/2010 at 12:42 AM

    Question: WIll this in any way shape or form affect anything else on my SD card, i.e Wiiware, photos, etc.

  338. 338 Raszagal 02/10/2011 at 7:27 PM

    Good question as I have a minimum I can put these characters into the game erases

  339. 339 Volpe 01/07/2012 at 5:24 PM

  340. 340 Justina 05/02/2013 at 9:19 AM

    Good day! I know this is kind of off topic but I was wondering which
    blog platform are you using for this site? I’m getting tired of WordPress because I’ve had issues with hackers and I’m looking at options for another platform. I would be awesome if you could point me in the direction of a good platform.

  341. 341 dave 01/04/2014 at 8:49 PM

    post some way to install the hack.

    here is a hint, if anyone posts ANYTHING about how to install homebrew, then get naked wario and make it their screen saver. since they have to be incompetent, they will never figure out how to change it. going over homebrew installation is about as intelligent as telling people how to use their mouse.

    it seems that everyone thinks that installing homebrew gets Dark Link to battle fully clothed Kirby.

    second suggestion, put a read-me in the zip folder.

    third suggestion, go read project m and see how they explain how to install.

  342. 342 hello hero Cheats 04/21/2014 at 6:01 AM

    Also, once you have completed a mission enough times, the boss battles
    get harder, slowing this process down further.
    Sonya: Fatality 1 (360) – Down, Down, Back, Forward, X (sweep) Fatality 1 (PS3) – Down, Down, Back,
    Forward, Square (sweep) Fatality 2 (360) – Down, Back,
    Forward, Forward, B (one step back) Fatality 2 (PS3) – Down, Back,
    Forward, Forward, Circle (one step back). To get XBOX ones I
    used this website: but I can not guarantee that they work even though I assume they are equivalent.

    What i do not realize is in truth how you’re no
    longer really a lot more smartly-liked than you may be right now.
    You are very intelligent. You know thus considerably with regards to this matter, made me in
    my view believe it from so many various angles. Its like women and men aren’t
    interested unless it is one thing to do with Lady gaga!
    Your personal stuffs nice. At all times maintain
    it up!
