    Can you help me, please? When I try to pack the NSMB2 files to a romfs, romfsbuilder doesn't work. It just says "Romfs Stopped Working" What do I do? :unsure:

    It wasn't an error. It said, "The program stopped working" I wish I knew what to do.

    Is there an alternative to Romfs Builder?

    You don't wanna know. :P
    Maybe I should update my guide then.

    If CoinKiller is new, what ELSE is new? Just tell me and I'll maybe update my guide. :P

    3dstools or ctrtool, but keep in mind ctrtool does not read unicode properly, so if there's any files with Japanese characters for example, it won't extract or build it properly.

    The romfs builder works on wine! :D For those who don't know, wine is an os x download that runs MOST windows downloads.

    Made an account just to say this, but there's a version of CoinKiller at http://kuribo64.net/board/thread.php?id=2323&page=22 if you scroll down to the post by TheKoopaKingdom. I can confirm CoinKiller saves entrances, exits, and zone changes. I'm not sure about other things, but when used with reggie you don't have many limits to what you can do. You might want to add this to your guide so people know. :D

    EDIT: Background changing, palette changing, and pretty much everything works! The only reason to use reggie is for block placement, as it's not the best in coinkiller.

    EDIT2: Paths are not in CoinKiller, but you can use reggie for those.

    Just an FYI. If the user changes the size of the file, or the size of a string relative to another one in any way, various bugs/crashes will happen. I do not recommend hex editing MSBT files in any way! Especially when the user doesn't know the format by heart.
