    He says he used NDS_tool but I can't find a download to it... if someone can post a link that'd help. Darigon, if you find one I got time to kill right now and would love to try it.

    NDSTool breaks NSMB and several other games when inserting stuff. For a MUCH MUCH easier program to extract and reinsert files (Even of different sizes!), use Nitro Explorer. The best part? It's made by a 13 year old. And it's stable. @_@

    It's very nice, and me and my friend use it to make our NSMB hack (Along with his NSMB Editor).

    i'm assuming he probably changed the water bombs mesh and textures with a thwomps mesh and textures

    Reading the video description isn't that hard. [​IMG]
    He says he "tricked the game into thinking that king womp was the water bubble"
    Editing the mesh and textures would be over-doing it for a simple hack like this.

    There's a bug in the ndstool in devkitARM, they are aware of it because I've found it, but WntrMute does'nt want to fix it. The support of the fat file system is for them of no use but promotion of piracy...

    That's bullshit. I use ndstool's nitrofat capabilities in my homebrew program, and I'd like for any bugs in that part of ndstool to be fixed!

    I do remember that topic. However, as EFS_lib uses the Nitro-FAT system, maybe we'd have a convincing argument to make them fix it, or use your fix [​IMG]

    If you do so, don't tell them that it's my fix, they seem to really hate me [​IMG]

    Ah, it was SC that gave you all that shit? Nobody likes StoneCypher. Hell, he even made DragonMinded quit for a while.
