Hey,
How would I add in a working boss (e.g. Giga-Lakitu BossJugem)?

I've tried a few times
But the boss doesn't appear and the star has already spawned.

Welcome to the board!

I would recommend simply copying the entire zone which contains the boss in the retail game and placing it into your galaxy. Mainly because bosses require many parameters and it can be easy to miss one, which would result in them not working properly. You could just take the zone that Giga Lakitu appears in during Yoshi Star, and either rename it to an existing zone in your galaxy to replace, or add a new zone entirely.

Could you walk me through this (or give me a link to the steps)?

Where's the full model importer? It's not in the downloads section and I can't find it with Google.

Quick question, where is the thread which has a tutorial on how to make .obj files created with SketchUp appear in Whitehole? And the tools for it, I can't find it.

I can help you.

Do you have SketchUp pro?
If not, you need a way to export .OBJ's.

Then, you need a tool called obj2bdl. I can link you it if you need it.
Run
obj2bdl.py input.obj
in cmd to convert your model.

Use KCL Create (I can link you that, too, if you can't find it) and run it on your OBJ.

Place the BDL, KCL, and PA in a folder with the same name as the files.

Drag the folder into arcPacker (link if needed), then the .ARC that gets created into yaz0Enc.

Delete the first .arc, and rename the .yaz0 to .arc.

Place that file in ObjectData.

Open ProductMapObjDataTable (from the BCSV editor) and add an entry. The first field is your object name, the second is the type (usually SimpleMapObj).

Write your object's name in the 'Select' field in Whitehole to place it.

Hope I helped!

Yes, but you should use the python one. If you really want it, PM me and I'll send it to you.

There are no advantages in any of these versions. Just stick to the ones you are comfortable with.

A question: When modding Starship Mario for the first time, I put a Bowser Meteor in the Engine Room. On my Wii, it worked. Since then I have put lots of powerups and other stuff and removed the Bowser Meteor. It worked. When I tried to put the Bowser Meteor back, game crash? Why? Do I put it on seperate layers or is there an object limit?

Are you sure it's because of the Bowser Meteor? And when exactly does it crash? when starting the level or starting the game? And does the game drop to 0 fps or is it something different?

1. Yes, must be because of Bowser Meteor (ground spawning). But it worked before I put loads of other objects in.

2. When I select the save file, and the screen goes black, it goes 0 FPS. This is because Starship Mario is loaded at save file load.

3. I have 'crash debugger' enabled and after waiting 5 minutes nothing appears on screen.
