I love SMG2 and would love to hack it. How could I get started making custom levels? What files do I need?

Sorry if this is the wrong section, I am new to here.

You need the extracted game files (CleanRip) and use Whitehole to edit them.

I have similar question. So, can anyone teach me ASM hacking for SMG2?

You will need to PowerPC and edit memory values. I only know that..

ASM is hard.

Through CleanRip (or you can extract a downlooaded ROM, but you'll have to figure that out by yourself).

TheSunCat there is a better way, WiiXplorer can extract only the files that you need, StageData. ObjectData and SystemData. This makes sure those usless update files/.dol files do not take up space and time. Later when you get better at hacking, you should extract the rest of the files for ASM, etc. I hope that I helped!

I take all files because I like to test w/ Dolphin when I need to do a quick test. Of course, you need a pretty good PC to do that. I think an i5 will do the trick though.


My WiiU is on the latest update, which makes Riivo act weird. It takes very long for it to load.

Thanks! I will try to install bot CleanRip and WiiXplorer. Where can I find them?

I also read about something called Captain Grabbin' somewhere.. Is that useful?

you've asked that twice now, and you've gotten the same response twice.

Anyway, there's a bunch of threads on setting up the basics for SMG modding in the Tutorials section.
