Can anybody help me? I still don't understand how to replace textures. I do this " Download the costume, and download DAT Texture Wizard (DTW). Open your ISO in DTW and use the file descriptions to look for the file you want to replace (you can also click on the "Disc Shortcuts" to jump to a specific section). Import the new costume file you just downloaded over the original that's in your game (select the file, click Import), and select Save in the File menu (or press CTRL-S). This program can also replace individual textures in your disc or a DAT file, and other game files (stage/character/menu/etc). The program is pretty strait-forward, and comes with a ReadMe file to refer to if you want to know more." but it doesn't work. I also want to create my own falco texture.

Are you saving once you've replaced the files you want? Are you getting error messages? (If so which) Are you loading the right ROM into dolphin?

It sounds like you're doing everything right. Are you sure you're editing the correct ISO? Here's a tutorial with images: https://ssbmtextures.com/tutorial-directory/tutorials-importing-dat-files/

Don't mean to go overboard with the uploads lol, just had this idea and couldn't stop thinking about it

I made a few new textures during some down time I had this week. I also went back and made CSPs for a lot of the textures that I have on https://ssbmtextures.com/, and will likely be included them with all my textures going forward. So that's cool.

Scroll Scroll spamitburns spamitburns The effects you're looking for, such as stars in the background, are stage-specific particle effects. They have their textures in the stage files, but the version of DTW out now doesn't show them. The next version will show them though, which I'll probably release early next week.

Hey I've been looking for days trying to find this Pokemon stadium texture. Does anyone know where I can find it? Sorry I don't have any higher quality pics.
Can anybody help me? I still don't understand how to replace textures. I do this " Download the costume, and download DAT Texture Wizard (DTW). Open your ISO in DTW and use the file descriptions to look for the file you want to replace (you can also click on the "Disc Shortcuts" to jump to a specific section).

The program is pretty strait-forward, and comes with a ReadMe file to refer to if you want to know more." but it doesn't work. I also want to create my own falco texture.
hey do you still need help? I'm not really the guy to ask about making the textures but I've pretty much figured out how to import custom textures via data wizard.

That mod was made by @NyxTheShield on twitter. He's in the Melee Workshop discord. I'm not sure if he ever publicly released that mod.
Ye I saw that it was made by Nyx. I remember searching for it on twitter and he showed a clip of him playing on that stage and a while back I saw my friend playing on it too. I did find that he released the buggy version of that stage on the server but I have no idea as to how to fix it so I was hoping someone had a finished version.

It's included as of the lastest release (v6.1).

Dips8462 Dips8462 Michael Ashby Michael Ashby Where was that link you guys were saying was broken? Was it the "All original skins" link in the OP? I was going to fix it, but that one works for me.

P.S. Nice costumes, Michael!

The link appears the be live now DRGN. I don't know if it was a site issue or what, but when the other commenter was asking about it, it kept 404'ing.

does anyone know if its possible in some way to combine two EfFxData dat files into one? i want to be able to replace one shine texture with another while still keeping the custom firefox but there's no way of being able to import the shine png straight into dat wizard because I can't seem to find the shine texture itself
The shine I'm replacing: https://cdn.discordapp.com/attachments/708860893013868555/780810319769370644/unknown.png
New Shine: https://cdn.discordapp.com/attachments/708860893013868555/780810304535265300/EfFxData.dat_0x40_9.png

Can someone direct me to where I can download the file for the simple Fountain of Dreams? It has no background I believe.

are you asking about this one? Its still WIP and I dont have a whole lot of motivation to work on it currently. But if this is indeed the one you are looking for that could help me push towards finishing it.

Guys I need your help, I'm trying to change my melee texture (got (USA) (En,Ja) (v1.02).7z version of melee), but when I'm trying to open it on DAT, it doesn't show up anything. Is there something I can do to be able to see my melee disc file tree?

Had a look for it myself and come up short. :/ If I get more free time I might have a crack at making one myself

Guys, I've been testing some maps, and I want to ask: does Kongo Jungle Battlefield and Kirby's dreamland night stage work on slippi?
here are the links:
From what I understand, using a modified ISO with texture hacks of anykind will lead to a higher chance of desyncs. I've done some testing with those stages and never had a desync with either of them. Kongo Jungle Battlefield is probably more likely to desync than Return To Dreamland because it uses a slightly different camera than og Battlefield. Again though, I've not had any issues using them.

hi - was wondering if anyone wanted to take a stab at tweaking this Pidgeot Falco skin to make the jacket brown and the pants maybe black to look a bit more like the pokemon. Think it would be sweet!

Made a slapdash mockup of this, though I stuck more strictly to the Pidgeot colorscheme (Pidgeot has pink legs). I only recolored the existing falco textures instead of making new ones from the ground up so it's nothing great lol.

Link: https://ssbmtextures.com/characters/pidgeot-falco-with-pidgeot-colored-clothes/

The original skin was made by Michael Ashby Michael Ashby (I think) and he uploaded a version with Ash Ketchum style clothing which you can check out here.

I was thinking that Kenny from South Park Ice Climbers would look hilarious. I've never done any ICs skins so I figured I'd throw the idea out there and see if anyone is interested (I also might just give it a shot and see how it turns out). :)
With more and more people finding interest in textures, I figured I'd bump this post.
Would love to see what people can make :)
Seasons Greetings!!

I did actually make a start on this a while back, put it on the shelf since the way Icies' models are rigged means the resemblence to Kenny (specifically the clothes) is kinda lost. This is where I'm at rn-

It was shelved pretty early on so almost all of the clothes textures are the exact same texture copied over. I'll get back to it, try to make it a little less half-assed.
I've been trying to learn how to model edit using HSDraw and blender, reading through the Melee Workshop discord n that. If I knew how I'd try to change the model so it resembled Kenny more, but I'm so new to model editing that it'll be a while down the line (if ever) that I'm able to do something like that.

Also figured I'd mention that although in South Park all you can see of Kenny through his hoodie is his eyes, I decided it would be better to make the eyes smaller. This is because when I tried to replicate Kenny's eyes authentically, his mouth poked through them which is pretty disturbing lol.


Also also,
Happy Holidays folks 🎄

if the disc image file gets smaller (1.36 GiB -> 1.33 GiB) after an import forces a rebuild, is that an issue? i imagine its fine, iso seems to work, just not experienced with this program / am curious
