    Hello there, GBATemp. It's your buddy Vash, from over at Game-Hackers.com, just filling you in on our latest project! I apologize if this is in the wrong section, and definitely feel free to move it.

    In honor of the US release of New! Super Mario Bros. Wii, we've decided to spill the details on our latest project (and one of our only full collaborations). Tanooki is the first fully-featured level editor for New! Super Mario Bros. Wii, allowing the user to completely customize every aspect of every level.

    Whoa, this could be really awesome.

    I say the first thing that should be done is put Yoshi in every level.

    Forgot to mention that this is just the first BETA release, so it can do a lot but not everything you'd hope for. With user feedback comes improvements. Let's have it!

    Okay, the readme says that you can open stages directly from an ISO of the game. But when I navigate to the directory with the game in it nothing comes up and I can't go any farther.

    The readme says it opens ARC files and tells you how to get to those ARC files. You'll need a program to extract the ISO contents (Trucha Signer!)

    Ah, okay. It's just the way the readme was written seemed to suggest that it would be able to go into the ISO for you. But it's easy enough to do with WiiScrubber, so there ya go.

    Always a possibility. It will at least be color coded to some degree. This is only the first beta release [​IMG]

    This is incredible. Combine this with a file replacement code like Brawl and BAM! Toggle between custom or normal levels by turning a gecko code on or off.

    New Kaizo Mario can't be far off [​IMG]

    Output to Gecko will be in the next beta (it's on the "coming soon" list right in the readme!)

    Epic...

    Seeing that the game is soooooo small, we can fill it up a bit more now

    Caan't wait to see all the youtube vids appearing soon [​IMG]

    I hope in the future there will be the ability to do more than just change the items/enemies.
    Maybe add levels, change the maps or add characters rather than change current ones. (wishful thinking)


    The Read Me
    Warning: Spoilers inside!

    I think this is gonna be popular and with USB loading people don't need to keep reburning to see changes, like they did back in the early days of GH3 customs.

    what will be even faster is when somebody cooks up a variation of the brawl+ code to just load files from sd instead of the game iso. then you just make a new level and slap it on your sd card and play the game however you feel like booting it.

    if that happens, it will make this mario game what it should have been from the start.. if the brawl plus method can work here, it would be insane.. but wouldnt sd code be needed in the game itself for it to read SD.. brawl used sd cards in the game directly to copy level creator levels and such.. mario has no such setup..

    Use WiiScrubber to replace the ARC files in the game image. You might want to keep a backup of the unmodified game before you start messing around with things.
