Hey, Heroic! Been a minute since you were active. So, how is the update patch for Mii Survivor Party goin? It's gonna be AMAZING! Just wonderin. Also, if you don't know already, the next mod the MS Cast will be in is a WSR mod. (That is after the WP mod doesn't need updates at the moment.)
Since you're the wiki's modding expert on all Wii games and Wii U, do you know if Na-rae is actually an opponent in the sports? While she can appear as a spectator in Tennis and as a coach in Boxing, I've never seen her myself in any of the sports, well for boxing at least. Her page says she is a Level ★10, and so am I but she doesn't show up, no matter how many times I restart. All the others show up fine, just her. I understand you're busy, but I'd appreciate it when you have time :) Also, here's a pic to prove that I'm ★10:
i'm not actually sure - honestly, i haven't dug into the CPU skills of Wii Sports Club. i looked around a little bit, but i'm not familiar enough with the game to be able to understand the CPU skills file. sorry i couldn't answer your question.
1. First of all, thanks a million for helping with this mod! Now Wii Party will be even more fun! However, it is far from perfect. Why? Because I messed up '26'of the Miis. Luckily, I already fixed them, and have the link below. (PS: If I missed any, let me know)
Also, I put photos in the zipped folder, so you could see if they were still incorrect, as well as so you would know what to expect (I did edit some, just small touch ups):
1. sure, i'll do it soon. do you need me to change any of the names?
2. unlikely. at least, for now. the Mii data files for Wii Party U are just.. somewhere i can't find. i don't know where they're at, and honestly they're probably stored in the hard code of the game at this point.
She's obviously either an sock or impersonator of Elisa Wuhu. Plus, she's posting rude stuff on people's walls and in comments. Or, since Elisa Wuhu is inactive, she could have made a sock because she forgot her password. I'm blocking her now.

well... how else would i change them?

CRY BABIES BABIES:
Ray, Shaun, Skye, Clara, Maria (the child/young teen miis)
here's the thing: the Miis have to stay the same difficulty. take a look at the official Wii Party rankings image i made. essentially, what i'm doing is simply swapping each of those Miis out with a Mii from the mod. if you mark all the Cry Babies Miis on that image, whoever they get swapped out with will also be a Cry Babies Mii, if that makes sense.
basically, Cry Babies works the same way the difficulty does. i can't change the rankings, but i can change the Miis themselves. if you can find a Cry Babies Mii from the original game that matches the same difficulty as a Cry Babies Mii you want in your mod, then that can be arranged.
yeah, i already knew about the oddities in what gets removed and what stays from the Wii Party Sort mod. some Miis even have a beard, but that gets removed in baby form. i've kinda been sitting on making that post for a while.
Well, there were no babies with a beard in my mod. Anyway, I'm excited for this update! I also want the Mii Survivor crew in another game/mod after I get the update prepped. Not sure what game though...
i'm currently working on a complete Wii Sports Resort mod that replaces every CPU Mii with a Mii from another game. i would suggest Wii Sports Resort, but by then i'll be charging commissions and stuff for these mods instead of just letting anyone ask me to do it for free since it's kinda a lot of work, at least for the other games.
well i'd allow Wii Sports, Wii Sports Resort, Wii Party, and even Wii Music to be available. though, only Wii Sports Resort and Wii Party allows all 100 Miis. Wii Sports can only do 60, and Wii Music can only do 10 main Miis and 60 background audience Miis.
i saw your mod and it looks really well. great job on doing that, it must've been very time-consuming but it was well worth it. i just have some questions:
1. do you need to have the physical disc to play it? I have a modded wii u and i was thinking if it was possible to use the mod in some way if you would know. i have the wii party installed to my wii u menu, that's it. but maybe it's possible to do it through the vWii or wii u homebrew launcher?
2. would it be possible to mod wii party u? like the sort you did, but also like changing miis by replacing them with the original miis from the wii. it would be more convenient if you'd just show me some guides since i understand you're busy.
Anyway, thank you for that mod, it looks great. :)
1. yes, you need the physical disc to play it on console. Wii and Wii U need the disc, while emulator can be done with just a .iso file. i suppose if you don't have the disc, you could perhaps build the .iso file and use a .iso or .wbfs loader on your Wii to run the mod off your USB.
2. technically, yes. the only issue with Wii Party U specifically is that it seems like it has hidden away its Miis somewhere. every other game, i can easily find where the Mii data files are, but Wii Party U just doesn't have them anywhere i can find. also, replacing the Wii U/3DS CPU Miis with the Wii CPU Miis in Wii Party U would be impossible for the most part as there are 111 of the Wii U/3DS CPU Miis and only 100 of the Wii CPU Miis, and you can't add or remove Miis in these games.
Most likely but i wouldn't know for sure. So I have the code, content, and meta folders extracted for WPU. Is it possible to start modding from there? I don't have any programs to open the files, and none of the file names help locating where the Miis are located. I know that it's got to be in the content > common folder but from there I'm confused lol.

no, that won't be possible without ASM patches (mods that change the hard code of the game - MUCH more difficult than simply replacing files)

yes, actually. that's pretty much it. there aren't really any tools for Wii Party U specifically, so your best bet is to use Wexos Toolbox (Google it) and throw any file you can find in there. for .msbt files specifically, use an editor like Kuriimu. for anything else, Google it, and if you can't find anything, use a HEX editor. if it still looks jumbled, it's not able to be edited yet and will require a lot of testing and reverse engineering.
Wexos Toolbox can also decompress many files.

no, there's nothing saying it will be in the /content/common/ folder. the /content/ folder is the game files. the /code/ folder is exactly what it says, the code. and honestly, i've probably spent hours looking for the Mii data files in that game. our best bet is it's going to be in the /code/ folder and replacing Miis for that game will require ASM patches (explained above) unfortunately.
no, i haven't. i don't really know too much about the Wii U model file format, but a Google search could tell you all you need. unless you mean to find the Miis, then no, it's not really necessary. i'm very familiar with the file structure of the Wii series games, and never have there been Miis inside files like a model file, or a file that's unrelated or not properly named.
So I've been trying to install Homebrew on my Wii so that I can play Storm Island and/or get ROMs for dolphin. I know which program I am going to use for ROMs (CleanRip), but what is a safe/reliable option for installing the homebrew channel? (The only thing I could find is LetterBomb, is that a good option?)
I'm kinda scared to mess with it, seeing how things usually go with me :p
so i just wanted to make sure I have a good chance for success
okay, so you want to follow this guide (just replace "New Super Mario Bros. Wii disc" with the disc of whatever game you want to mod, Wii Sports Resort for Storm Island, and replace "Newer Super Mario Bros. Wii mod" with "Storm Island mod" or whatever mod you're going to play.)
also keep in mind, it sometimes mentions that Nintendo might be able to detect if you install channels to your Wii and could do something about it: that is no longer true. it was maybe possible many years ago, but the Wii is long dead now and Nintendo has literally no way of knowing if you modded your Wii.
Ok so I got Riivolution and Storm Island to work fine, but when I plug in my usb drive with CleanRip on it nothing happens. I formatted it to NTFS just like the Dolphin guide said. Do you kinow what the issue is?
(Btw the letterbomb letter is gone, not sure if that makes any difference but idk)
Ok so now I have both parts of the iso, I tried entering the code to join the files but it didn't work. How do I join the files? (I've been doing everything on a Mac so far, but if necessary I can switch to my dad's windows pc)
I am using a Wii Remote with the external MotionPlus attachment, and I did select the Real Wiimote option in the menu.
Now that I think about it, the Wii MotionPlus might be the problem. I played both Wii Sports and Wii Party on there and everything worked fine, including motion-based games like Baseball, Flap Hurdles and Paddle Pals.
I should also probably mention that I have the sensor bar plugged into the Wii and sitting on top of the monitor. While that setup does work on Dolphin, could that be the problem?
having the sensor bar plugged into the Wii is the same thing i do, that shouldn't be the problem. are you able to do the exact same vigorous (very vigorous) movements on an actual Wii console with Wii Sports Resort Swordplay? you seem to be swining the controller very violently, so it looks like that's just an issue with you moving it too hard and fast, and Wii Sports Resort can't keep up with it
