eV6K2Il.gif Questions

I'll be more than happy to answer any questions related to homebrew/riivolution hacking (includes Mario Kart Wii, Super Smash Bros. Brawl, and general sound replacements). I get a ton of those regularly, so don't be shy to ask me if you have problems or if you're interested in installing homebrew on your Wii, as well as making model replacements. If you're also interested in porting assets for Source, as in Left 4 Dead 2, Team Fortress 2, or Gmod, I can help there too.

QcmSGsD.gif Policy on projects

I don't mind if you help participate in any my projects without contacting me first as long as you're not actively edit-sniping me as I write articles or add uploaded images to tables as I'm uploading them, because this creates edit conflicts and makes it even harder for me to save edits on articles I'm working on. However, it's generally still polite to ask first if it's ok to assist in my projects. The answer will be yes unless otherwise stated. I just don't want anyone edit-snipe police for me should someone else create articles out of red links that I was planning to create or create tables of items that I was about to create. Any help is very appreciated.

scbECZP.gif Rules
  1. Please leave all new comments on the bottom of this page, or click that "+" sign for a new header.
  2. Please sign your comments with {{User|Username}} or ~~~~. Don't make me and others go through the hassle of using the {{unsigned|Usernamed}} template for you.
  3. Please type your best English here. Typing like a semi-literate boob will make me treat you like a semi-literate boob.
  4. I strongly encourage you to read these pages before you ask me (or others) help with Wiki syntax, but I'll most likely help with your problems anyway.
  5. Please use common sense. If you think what you wrote in my talk page is inappropriate, chances are, it is.
  6. This also applies to courtesy. Please be courteous and kind at all times.
  7. I do not take any requests of any sort. I'm far too busy to please everyone, and while I do have an attitude that wants to please everyone, it's not feasible to do so.
    1. THIS INCLUDES FRIEND REQUESTS. If you want to be my friend, talk to me and stuff like that. Friendship isn't a thing to be accepted or rejected, it's earned. Like trust. I will not bite you if you casually talk to me, I promise.
  8. Think something I did is wrong and incorrect? It is fine to discuss it here in a peaceful manner. Insulting me or calling me out because I did something you don't like obviously violates a MarioWiki policy and you could get warned for it depending on the severity of it. Wouldn't it be just easier to just...discuss it? I won't bite if you don't provoke me.
  9. Don't bother if you're gonna troll here: the edit is gonna get reverted instantly anyway so no one will see it. I'm already trained enough to ignore idiots thanks to my experience here.
  10. If I tell you to stop doing something (eg leaving random messages on my talk page), it's probably because you're annoying me. Please don't continue leaving messages that I don't care to reply to.

The non-Mario badges you uploaded by mistake, think you can find a place for them and remainders on other wikis? Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 01:18, September 15, 2020 (EDT)

Oh absolutely but the problem is, there's a whole lot of them and I don't have accounts on other wikis, aside from Nookipedia and WiKirby, and both of them are inactive. I'm not sure if I'll ever get around uploading them for other Nintendo series. BabyLuigiFire.png Ray Trace(T|C) 03:59, September 15, 2020 (EDT)
Nookipedia and WiKirby are actually very active. But that's fine, if you'd like to put them in a Dropbox or something, I can upload them at some point :) Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 12:23, September 15, 2020 (EDT)
"They" refers to my accounts there. Anyway, I've uploaded the zip to my Google Drive. Enjoy. BabyLuigiFire.png Ray Trace(T|C) 16:17, September 15, 2020 (EDT)

Super Mario Galaxy 2 not included in SM3DAS[edit]

Why shouldn't we mention that SMG2 isn't included? If it's going to be removed, at least give a better reason than just "unnecessary because it is not the best way to describe why.--TheGreenBeetle (talk) 12:45, September 19, 2020 (EDT)

The first sentence of the article actively tells readers what's in the game, as I feel like that's good enough information to inform readers of what the game pack contains. Making statements that omit games as a negative space tend to carry redundant bloat in the article that comprises the brevity of the statement. BabyLuigiFire.png Ray Trace(T|C) 13:04, September 19, 2020 (EDT)
Ok. I guess that makes sense.--TheGreenBeetle (talk) 14:49, September 19, 2020 (EDT)

I see...[edit]

So, are you trying to raise Super Mario Kart to featured status now? --Part 1 of my sigPart 2 of my sig 23:58, September 19, 2020 (EDT)

Yeah I am. BabyLuigiFire.png Ray Trace(T|C) 00:03, September 20, 2020 (EDT)

I am thinking Dr. Mario World animations...[edit]

If you can try to get more Dr. Mario World model animations could you do the rest of the losing animations and win animations and more for the gallery? I know you told me last time, but I have been checking all day. I split the models into a gallery of the models, so people could find them easier there instead of waiting in the other gallery. MaxJack200logo.png(T) 11:29, September 20, 2020 (EDT)

As you can see by my rather delayed response, I am quite busy right now writing up articles and what not. I'll try to get to them eventually. BabyLuigiFire.png Ray Trace(T|C) 09:50, September 21, 2020 (EDT)
I understand, but I wish I had an Android to do what you told last time but I am afraid I don't have one, I have an iPhone X (Apple). But I wait for you making them soon. MaxJack200logo.png(T) 03:05, September 21, 2020 (EDT)
I'll resume again today. I'll try getting the idle animation for Dr. Blooper at least. BabyLuigiFire.png Ray Trace(T|C) 17:25, September 21, 2020 (EDT)
Don't forget the last losing animations, all win animations, more skill animations, and the idle animations for Dr. Boo, Dr. King Boo, and Dr. Morton. OK? MaxJack200logo.png(T) 09:26, October 4, 2020 (EDT)

A simple question[edit]

One thing you may or may have not noticed recently, is that I have been uploading many image/gifs from the PC/MS-DOS versions of Mario is Missing, Mario's Time Machine, and Mario's Early Years: Fun With Letters. Part of why I have been doing that is because all of the games I just mentioned, I own on CD-ROM. I play them on DOSBox, take screenshots of them, and then remove the backgrounds to rip the sprites. Are there any particular sprites from Mario is Missing, Mario's Time Machine, and Mario's Early Years: Fun With Letters that you would like ripped? Also, other than taking screenshots and then removing the backgrounds, is there any other way to rip sprites from those games? MarioIsMissingDos (talk) 3:52, 21 September 2020 (EST)

'Allo. I haven't really played the games but I think you should rip...well every named object in the game, from characters to Mushrooms to Blocks. I think it would be so great to have expanded coverage on the edutainment games on the wiki in general so images are a great place to start. Maybe one day they'll be featured articles lol. BabyLuigiFire.png Ray Trace(T|C) 17:24, September 21, 2020 (EDT)

I have just finished playing through all of the CD-ROM version of Mario is Missing for the third time, so prepare for me to nuke the wiki with images and gifs from that game. Like this Bowser. Sprites of Bowser walking from Mario is Missing! (CD-ROM). MarioIsMissingDos (talk) 4:49, 27 September 2020 (EST)

You are an unsung hero of MarioWiki. BabyLuigiFire.png Ray Trace(T|C) 16:59, September 27, 2020 (EDT)

For uploading that gif, among others? MarioIsMissingDos (talk) 5:05, 27 September 2020 (EST)

We need more Mario Edutainment title coverage, period, and includes uploading the Very Best Mario Sprites. BabyLuigiFire.png Ray Trace(T|C) 17:14, September 27, 2020 (EDT)

Like this: Bowser after having his shell removed by Luigi in Mario is Missing! (PC). A sprite for "Tug" from the MS-DOS release of Mario's Early Years! Fun with Letters Bowser from the MS-DOS release of Mario's Early Years! Preschool Fun A sprite of Bowser playing baseball from the MS-DOS release of Mario's Early Years!

The best Bowser sprites. BabyLuigiFire.png Ray Trace(T|C) 17:29, September 27, 2020 (EDT)

Which one of those overweight turtles is your favorite? Also, here are some more. A sprite of Bowser from the MS-DOS release of Mario's Early Years! Fun with Letters Sprite of Bowser from Mario's Time Machine (PC). Sprites of Bowser walking from the ending of Mario's Time Machine (MS-DOS). Bowser's walking animation from the MS-DOS release of Mario's Early Years! Fun with Letters MarioIsMissingDos (talk) 5:45, 27 September 2020 (EST)

The profile one that shows how ineptly his shell is drawn is the best. But I also like the derpy talking Bowser too. BabyLuigiFire.png Ray Trace(T|C) 17:54, September 27, 2020 (EDT)

The funny part about that, is that because the PC version of Mario is Missing was the first Mario game I ever played, as well as being my introduction to the franchise, I used to think that was how Bowser's shell was meant to be, and because of that, I thought all the other sprites of Bowser were the off-model ones. Anyway, Iggy Koopa is here with all of his clones. The full talking animation of Iggy Koopa in the CD-ROM Deluxe version of Mario is Missing!, including the unused frames. Iggy Koopa's jumping animation from Mario's Early Years! Fun with Letters. A sprite of Iggy Koopa from Mario's Early Years! Fun with Letters. A sprite of Iggy Koopa from Mario's Early Years! Fun with Letters. MarioIsMissingDos (talk) 6:18, 27 September 2020 (EST)

Oh really? Lmao, you started off on the right foot for Mario franchise entry lmao. Also, Icky Iggy is a great nickname for Iggy that I wish was used in official games. BabyLuigiFire.png Ray Trace(T|C) 18:26, September 27, 2020 (EDT)

I still have the CD-ROM that I first played the game off of all those years ago. It still works too, and is what I played the game on to screenshot the sprites. After I played Mario is Missing, I then moved on to the PC version of Mario's Early Years: Fun With Letters, and after that, I played Mario's Time Machine on PC before moving over to the mainline games. Here are some more sprites from the PC release of Mario's Early Years: Fun With Letters, and the PC version of Mario's Early Years: Preschool Fun, as well as the PC version of Mario's Time Machine. A sprite of Mario from Mario's Early Years! Fun with Letters. A sprite of Mario from Mario's Early Years! Fun with Letters. Sprites of Mario's walking animation from Mario's Early Years! Fun with Letters. Mario from the MS-DOS release of Mario's Early Years! Preschool Fun Sprites of Iggy Koopa's walking animation from the MS-DOS version of Mario's Early Years! Fun with Letters. Luigi in Mario's Early Years! Fun with Letters (MS-DOS) Princess Peach from Mario's Early Years! Fun with Letters Sprites of a Koopa from Mario's Time Machine (MS-DOS). Mario's walking animation from Mario's Time Machine (MS-DOS) Ludwig pointing at something and then jumping in Mario's Time Machine (PC) Ludwig walking in Mario's Time Machine (PC) Ludwig in Mario's Time Machine (PC) All of those Ludwig sprites were from the PC version of Mario's Time Machine. They were not used in-game, but they were a bitmap file on the CD-ROM called "MUSEUM/LUDW.BMP". I found them on accident while poking around on the CD-ROM, so I decided to make them into gifs. MarioIsMissingDos (talk) 7:54, 27 September 2020 (EST) So, do you think those Ludwig sprites should have been used in the PC version of Mario's Time Machine, or do you think that it's a good thing they are unused? Also, what do you think those Ludwig sprites were going to be used for? MarioIsMissingDos (talk) 7:02, 28 September 2020 (EST)

We need your help. ^^[edit]

Hi, I'm a Big Fan of Dr. Mario World and I see than we still miss a couples of Doctors Animations as GIF. Would you accept to help us too added the rest of the bunch, specially the winning animations that would be very nice to have to. I know you are very busy, so I know it will take you a lot of effort to get back on this, but the good new is they doesn't give us New Doctors and New Assistants for this Month, so that mean Dr. Mario World is about to eventually close and we want to bring every beautiful things of this game they give us, before they shutdown the servers forever.

Long life to Dr. Baby Luigi and eventually Dr. Birdo, I hope! :P

Just for you know, I'm not very connected to MarioWiki.com, so if you want to contact me directly on dominicouimet@hotmail.com I will answer you as soon as I see your message and I check them almost everyday. ^^

About sandbox[edit]

If a user wants to experiment, they should use their sandbox, not the main sandbox. Benjaminkirsc (talk) 15:27, December 4, 2020 (EST)

That's exactly what the main sandbox is for. Nonautoconfirmed users can't even make their own user pages yet, and users entirely new to wiki editing can gravitate towards that page, that's exactly what I did when I first created my account here. BabyLuigiFire.png Ray Trace(T|C) 16:26, December 4, 2020 (EST)
Oh, sorry. I'm sorry for being harsh about it. Nonetheless, going another direction, saying "Hello world" is considered chatting, I prefer if that user should put that on Discord. Benjaminkirsc (talk) 16:29, December 4, 2020 (EST)
""Hello, World!" program is a common new programming quirk. What the user did is ultimately harmless. BabyLuigiFire.png Ray Trace(T|C) 16:31, December 4, 2020 (EST)
Oh, sorry again. I feel like I took vandalism too seriously Benjaminkirsc (talk) 16:33, December 4, 2020 (EST)
It's fine, not a big deal. The message will likely get removed down the line regardless anyway. BabyLuigiFire.png Ray Trace(T|C) 16:34, December 4, 2020 (EST)

IP vandalism[edit]

Can't help but see that as a self-confession on their part, haha Doc von Schmeltwick (talk) 02:56, December 5, 2020 (EST)

I tried to give that user a chance by simply blocking them from editing just the List of Boos article, they blew it. *shrug* BabyLuigiFire.png Ray Trace(T|C) 02:59, December 5, 2020 (EST)

Wario congratulates you![edit]

Wario has heard that you became a patroller, so he came here personally to congratulate you! What? You’re saying that it was already celebrated like two weeks ago? And that you’ve set up a Wario killing device that’ll kill- *BOOM* ...and there he goes.

Anyway, congratulations and have a very Merry Christmas, and a (hopefully) good 2021.

Completely unrelated, I feel like I have matured here on the wiki, don’t you think? Like I went from creating a fake page (which I got blocked for) to being a somewhat active part the community. MightyMario (talk)Mario's icon from Mario Kart Tour.

Sure thing! You've certainly gotten better at learning the ropes in the wiki. But it's an ongoing process! Always improve, and treat your mistakes as part of your growth as a person. If you want an example of such, look no further than our talk page archives. We were, well, er, quite different 10 years ago when we were around your age. I'm still a bit embarrassed by myself at points but I've overall accepted whom I was in the past, and I do hope it becomes a learning and growth opportunity to well, reflect on yourself and make sure you don't feel bad about yourself in the end.

More YNI enemy models down the road?[edit]

I thank you for your work on the Raven Chick and other YNI enemy models like Blow Hard. But can there be more, like Petal Guy, Slime Drop, Bouncing Bullet Bill, Green, Yellow, and Pink Fly Guy, Pyro Guy, and others, if possible? There was a tweet from a guy named wilyg9, just pointing it out... Anyway, happy 2021 and good nite! -- 19:10, February 7, 2021 (EST)


Calling something "symbolic" is hardly a radical statement of opinion. It is obviously symbolic if two long-time rival companies start using each others' characters for the first time. An opinionated, non-subjective word would be calling the moment something like "important" or "positive." Nevertheless, I deleted the word. I am prepared to continue trying to improve this article, barring a better explanation of why trying to make the quality of the writing better is somehow wrong. (Goombagumba (talk) 09:15, February 13, 2021 (EST))

Regarding the warning, to be fair, the last thing he undid was his own edit. Doc von Schmeltwick (talk) 15:27, February 13, 2021 (EST)

Yeah, but I've noticed that he had undid your edit before even addressing my informal reminder on the talk page that I had sent before then, and that was before him undoing Keyblade Master's edit. He should have brought it up in talk page rather than continuously attempt to put his revision back onto the page after he had been given an informal reminder for it.

Fan-made or official[edit]

Hi, do you know if this image is official artwork or fanart? I just think if it was official, it would have been uploaded before, and it was uploaded by a user who joined earlier today. Bowser Nightwicked Bowser Bowser emblem from Mario Kart 8 15:17, February 18, 2021 (EST)

Hello. Reverse Google Searching the image leads to results from fandom. The Wikia counterpart that was uploaded this file in question has been marked for deletion as unofficial artwork. In addition, the artwork has existed before Bowser's Fury's inception, appearing in a thumbnail for a mod video that was uploaded in 2018 and this image uploaded on fantendo dates to 2018. Signs indeed point to this artwork being fan-made. BabyLuigiFire.png Ray Trace(T|C) 17:01, February 18, 2021 (EST)

Unknown character[edit]

Quick question: In the List of Yoshi's New Island Message Block hints article that you just created, why did you input a Private Use Area into hint #35? I'm just wondering because I'm not sure what that PUA is supposed to represent. Toadette icon CTTT.pngFont of Archivist Toadette's signature(T|C) 18:32, March 4, 2021 (EST)

In the MSBT file, the strange character is supposed to represent a graphic to use (like the binoculars entry), but since I don't quite remember what the message is referring to, I just left it blank. I did recall encountering that message but I don't know what level it is found in. BabyLuigiFire.png Ray Trace(T|C) 18:37, March 4, 2021 (EST)

"Discussion is required"[edit]

Actually, when the only official name known (or in this case, properly cited) in a name in another language, per MarioWiki:Naming we always use an official non-English name over a conjectural name.

Mrs. Thwomp[edit]

While it would seem unlikely, I want to point out the character difference in question is the same that differentiates Goomba and Galoomba, and considering 3DW brought Galoombas themselves back (among other things), it is possible that they based the new enemy off an obscure thing from years before. Also, not only "just boulders," similar small-armed-Geodude-esque body stucture. Basically, I feel the similar name needs mentioned somewhere, at least in the Niol box.

Super Mario Land FA Nomination Removal of Oppose[edit]

@Ray Trace You said you could help with the admin required part of Removal of Opposes in the 3D World + Bowser’s Fury nomination. Is there any way you can help pass the removal of oppose for Archivist Toadette’s vote on the Super Mario Land FA nomination? TasteTheFiresOfHelp (talk), 15:42, June 22, 2021 (EST)

Well, once the requirements are met, you can remove it yourself. I've done it for you, but the part I helped out with was me voting in agreement to remove the oppose vote. BabyLuigiFire.png Ray Trace(T|C) 16:28, June 22, 2021 (EDT)
That's fair, it's just that you're a patroller not an admin. TasteTheFiresOfHelp (talk), 17:36, June 22, 2021 (EST)
Patrollers are admins. I have access to the admin boards on the forums, the sysops gmail, and on the Discord. Sometimes the definitions get a bit muddled but the rule is referring to "administrators" as "wiki staff". That rule should get a rewrite so it's more clear. BabyLuigiFire.png Ray Trace(T|C) 17:51, June 22, 2021 (EDT)


Well, what we've been doing so far is use the name from the Japanese Enyclopedia if there's nothing else readily available, though the rotating lift in question is actually the "Swing Lift"; if you look on page 69 of English Encyclopedia, you can see that they refer to the rotating lifts and rail lifts as swinging platform and rail platform, and the former groups the brown Single Swing Lift and grey Triple Swing Lift together (the latter should be Pulley Lift).

Fire Flower[edit]

Wario portraits when the character is in last position in Mario Party: Star Rush

Hi, I'm the user who nominated the Fire Flower article. In your comment, you told me that Yoshi Touch & Go and Mario Sports Superstars both have cameos of the Fire Flower. But I'm not sure where they are. Can you please help? Also, thanks for your advice, it helped me a lot. Wario (Cowboy) from Mario Kart TourWildWario (talk) 05:43, September 17, 2021 (EDT)

Hello. Mario Sports Superstars has a gear appearance of a Fire Flower; they're basically purchasable aesthetic changes for equipment when you buy a card off the shop. They are also unlocked when you scan amiibo cards in. Mario is the one that uses a Fire Flower for his gear. It's also the icon for Flower Cup. As for Yoshi Touch & Go, both the modern and 8-bit incarnation of them appears as a ranking icon to pick when a high score is achieved.

Fire Flowers can use specific level appearances. Ie Fire Flowers appear in like, World 1-5, or whatever, there are certain levels where they are the main power-up of the level. BabyLuigiFire.png Ray Trace(T|C) 21:25, November 1, 2021 (EDT)

As for Mario Party 4, I don't think Monty Mole's even in that game despite what the game's bio says, they probably mistook it for another game or something, or the devs didn't realize the gap of non appearance from 4.

Critically important news[edit]

It is with the utmost grief that I have to inform you of this fateful incident: since the editors weren't quick enough to write about your more than well deserved promotion on this page, noticing the color of your role now being similar to that of his hide Yoshi sneaked in to congratulate and express his happiness about your new position on the wiki.

Sadly, all the toothpicks were brought away by a little turtle nicknamed Jr. to make "the pits of the next autoscrolling level", now I don't know what that means but it sounds eerily evil. In any case, what looks like the dog pet of Yoshi came in the meantime and brought him in a cave filled with lava... I'm not positive the two know what they're doing but I guess that will work for now, plus another green-loving fellow came to compliment you for your position (and its color):

Done. Thank you. BabyLuigiFire.png Ray Trace(T|C) 22:58, December 13, 2021 (EST)


First of all, I want to give a big thank you to you and others for supporting my proposal, much appreciated. I saw you said you're up for cutting ties to ZW altogether, and this surprise me because you're a patroller (i.e. a staff member). Are you allowed to say that? I also want the interwikis changed, and I like how you said the proposal is a good start toward that (and it was brave of you to speak out about it), but a direct proposal on that... there would need to be some solid justification for doing that (though I think ZW on Fandom for 3 years is already a reason for that). Seeing as we're in NIWA, ZW would inevitably take priority.

Reminds of something slightly related: I have been working on various wikis over the past few years, some examples including Banjo, Conker, Crash, Spyro, Zelda, Final Fantasy, and so forth. Me and a few other editors, who I'm very grateful for all of their help. They're all part of a link exchange named Gaming Wiki Network. To me the examples I listed have comparable aspects to Mario in some way or another. I realized that all this time I was more concerned about Mario Wiki than NIWA (re: Zelda situation, that is). Of course, since I can't do anything about it, I decided to build up link exchange of wikis in the style of Mario Wiki, at least in some way or another (aside from the affiliates). It's ironic that Zelda Wiki was the original founder of NIWA (they went to Bulbapedia & then both went to Mario Wiki) yet they were the first to sell out & haven't made any plan in the past few years, even if they have ZD Wiki and Triforce Wiki as alternative options. A really big thing. Kirby is doing well on WiKirby, Star Fox is doing good on Lylat Wiki. The current biggest issue is Metroid, although I have barely played it and don't have much knowledge regarding it.

Nintendo (general), SSB, and Pokemon wikis in style of Mario Wiki (with a bit of classic 00s Wikia taste to reflect them being hosted on Miraheze) are three sideprojects that I've started very recently, and I've been keeping them separate from Gaming Wiki Network, as they're more personal endeavors (and Triforce Wiki being hosted by Grifkuba, although it was not met with much backlash afaik, still was a big move of them). Even if this is very uphill, I am very willing to play the long game and have long-term goals. I love wiki editing, and the Mario Wiki format has proven to work on several different wikis, and I'd like to see it in action on Nintendo, SSB, and Pokemon-style wikis.

This is more a discussion that one would have in DMs or on Discord, but what I typed above is relatively common knowledge at this point & your talk page is the only way I could contact you about this. Results May Vary (talk) 21:56, January 2, 2022 (EST)

Eh, I'm allowed to say any personal opinions, staff member or not, I don't think I should be castigated for expressing my views openly. I don't make it a secret either that I despise what ZeldaWiki does and I don't think anyone should be silenced simply because of that. However, I'd say it's how you express those opinions that matters, timing and wording is everything, so I think when I expressed my disdain towards the whole direction ZeldaWiki took, it was appropriate. I know that giant overhauls won't happen, hence why we wouldn't cut ties with ZeldaWiki any time soon, but small, gradual steps such as acknowledging the presence of other wikis is a good start in making sure ZeldaWiki becomes redundant AND a worse place for Zelda information so we naturally adapt to the fledgling wikis while removing the old. I don't think I can help out further than MarioWiki, however. I did lend small hand to Nookipedia and WiKirby but neither wiki kept my interest for that long, so I apologize if I can't help out Zelda, a series I'm even less knowledgeable and passionate about than these two.

Mario-related content in Zelda[edit]

Remember my ZD Wiki/Triforce Wiki proposal that successfully passed? I think my next step is retroactively applying me, Doc, and LTL's research on Mario-related subjects on Triforce Wiki back into the Super Mario Wiki. See the Thwomp and Thwimp articles as examples. These are Mario subjects, just in a different series, so I think describing them in full is okay, especially so readers can more easily compare. Then there's Spiked Thwomp, Mega Thwomp, and Stone Elevator having their own articles on a Zelda-related wiki, such as Triforce Wiki. Results May Vary (talk) 17:57, April 12, 2022 (EDT)

He runs a candy store as a money-laundering front to conceal business with illegal garlic sold to depraved boors.

Your task is to stealthily pay Wario a visit to his house and retrieve any evidence of Mr. Sloth's business.

Request to move Bowser's Castle (Mario Kart Arcade GP) back to Castle Wall, and Bowser's Factory to Bowser's Castle (Mario Kart Arcade GP)[edit]

My proposal to split AGP1 Bowser's Castle and Bowser's Factory, as well as Castle Wall and AGPDX Bowser's Castle, has recently ended, and passed! But before I can begin splitting, I need the current versions of Bowser's Factory and AGPDX Bowser's Castle to be moved back to AGP1 Bowser's Castle and Castle Wall, respectively, since the articles originally started out as such, and I feel like the revision history of those original articles should be preserved (as opposed to being a mess that changed from one article to another, with the one article it begun as getting its own separate history).
Problem is, as I explained here, with the moves to their current article names that happened in 2020, I cannot move the articles back to their original names myself; an admin needs to do it for me. You're an admin, and you voted on my proposal in support of it, hence why I went to you, to ask if you could move the pages back to their original names? I would appreciate that.
I feel like Bowser's Castle (Mario Kart Arcade GP) needs to be moved back to Castle Wall first, since it's currently using the one name that Bowser's Factory needs to be moved back to.
Oh, and there's also the redirects Bowser's Castle (arcade) and Bowser’s Castle (arcade) that lead to Bowser's Castle (Mario Kart Arcade GP), and the redirect Bowser Factory that leads to Bowser's Factory; I don't think those need to be changed per se.

Touch & Go monkeys[edit]

YT&G's page currently lists Ukikis as throwing bombs sometimes in it, but I can only find them throwing Pokeys and Bananas. Do you remember them throwing bombs of any sort in it? Doc von Schmeltwick (talk) 14:01, December 25, 2022 (EST)

It's been a while since I played the game but I didn't add that information there, it was up in a list before I touched the article. If you see them throwing only Pokeys and bananas then probably only so BabyLuigiFire.png Ray Trace(T|C) 14:22, December 25, 2022 (EST)

Proposal cancel request[edit]

Could you cancel my proposal for the Banzai Bill/Bomber Bill debacle? It just recently launched, so it's less than three days. It will likely fail, and it's pointless to keep waiting and assume the proposal can win. --Wikiboy10 (talk) 12:59, May 18, 2023 (EDT)

You can cancel it yourself either today or tomorrow. Bowser Nightwicked Bowser Bowser emblem from Mario Kart 8 13:31, May 18, 2023 (EDT)

YNI Yariyari[edit]

Can you confirm trivia that i read from the Italian wiki, about them having unused textures and/or animations? --Green Yoshi FanOfYoshi 11:04, July 9, 2023 (EDT)

I can most certainly confirm red and green textures do exist, but they're virtually identical to Spear Guys (they're in the same file, heyho.bch.z, most Shy Guys in the game are contained in there with specific variants having their own animation files, and the only way you can tell they're intended for Dancing Spear Guys is that the model file itself is called yariyari_body01a rather than yariho_body01a). I think the wiki is also correct about the animations too, but what animations exactly are unused? Only way you can tell is if you watch them in-game and then watch the animation files (which are stored in heyho_yariyari.bch.z, contained of only animation files intended to be combined with heyho.bch.z). Does the Italian wiki specify which animations are unused? BabyLuigiFire.png Ray Trace(T|C) 14:56, July 9, 2023 (EDT)
Our wiki also states "There are also unused textures for red and green Dancing Spear Guys that had different animations and were planned to appear, but were cut out.", which isn't very clear to me because the animation files don't point to specific Spear Guy colors. I'm not sure if there is enemy behavior scripted elsewhere that I'm missing, that info may have gotten datamined from the csv files for enemies. BabyLuigiFire.png Ray Trace(T|C) 15:02, July 9, 2023 (EDT)
I wrote that, might as well wanna reword that. Anyways, the used animations are the "regular" dance, and the pink ones have an additional jump. Also, do the green ones have a differently colored skirt? --Green Yoshi FanOfYoshi 06:52, July 10, 2023 (EDT)
Well there are more animations such as Spear Guys shaking their butts and twirling around but I also recall that also being in the game (they have 20 animations in total). Green ones do not have a differently colored skirt, however yellow ones are the only ones with a line running down the center of the center leaf.

Ripping Mario Kart Arcade GP 1+2[edit]

Hey Ray Trace, I'm trying to rip textures and sprites from MKAGP, but until now without success. I figured out you ripped some sprites, specially of MKAGP2, so I ask you how did you do that? Blueberrymuffin 04:12, July 14, 2023 (UTC -03)

Hi. For ripping textures from MKAGP2, I had a rom of MKAGP2 and the Triforce branch of the Dolphin Emulator (the emulator can rip sprites). BabyLuigiFire.png Ray Trace(T|C) 23:26, July 14, 2023 (EDT)

Thanks, I was doing it already, I was trying to find a version that rip, cause the new ones can't, but i got it. Blueberrymuffin 10:04, July 16, 2023 (UTC -03)

Categories containing user pages[edit]

I was looking through Category:Super Mario 3D World objects and noticed one of your subpages in there. I then looked through it and found multiple categories. You can leave it as it is if you want, but I feel like some people are going to be confused. This is not a serious problem, just a minor gripe that you can ignore if you want. :) MHA Super Mushroom:) at 04:20, August 31, 2023 (EDT)

WarioWare Renders[edit]

Hey, quick question, some renders for the WarioWare characters (specifically Jimmy T, 18-Volt, Dribble & Spitz, and 13-Amp, had new renders for Move It! but got reverted. Do you think the renders are fine or should the renders from Get it Together stay there for now? I think the Move It renders are fine but would rather not edit war about them. Thanks!

Sdman213 (talk) 10:18, November 3, 2023 (EDT)

Tbh I think the Move It renders are fine, the differences between them and the Get Together ones are very minimal. BabyLuigiFire.png Ray Trace(T|C) 21:48, November 3, 2023 (EDT)
Okey dokey!! Ty for the reply!

Sdman213 (talk) 21:50, November 3, 2023 (EDT)


Hey there, [user] used rude an unnecessarily rude tone in the edit summary, I'm not trying to cause any trouble, I simply removed the information because there is not a direct confirmation that a character that looks like Mr. Sparkles in WarioWare reappears in Move It.

Concerning sprites.[edit]

Can you make sprites? If not, do you know anyone who can? SONIC123CDMANIA+&K(B&ATSA) (talk) 19:56, January 9, 2023 (CST)

i can make sprites but what for? BabyLuigiFire.png Ray Trace(T|C) 20:58, January 9, 2024 (EST)
These are what I'm talking about. It was meant for me to be included in the Koop-bot Arena, but no reply, so I just want the sprites. SONIC123CDMANIA+&K(B&ATSA) (talk) 09:36, January 10, 2023 (CST)
I'm sorry but the sprites you are requesting requires weeks of work, something I don't have time for. BabyLuigiFire.png Ray Trace(T|C) 16:28, January 10, 2024 (EST)
Do you know anyone who CAN do those sprites? SONIC123CDMANIA+&K(B&ATSA) (talk) 16:51, January 10, 2023 (CST)
No, and judging from your request, it's going to be a long shot. I don't think anyone will draw hundreds of sprites for your concept for free. BabyLuigiFire.png Ray Trace(T|C) 21:43, January 10, 2024 (EST)
Oof. I don't know if I CAN give away money, because 1. I don't know if that's legal. 2. Hundreds? I mean the pallets are going to be seperate, so it's not going to require EVERY SPRITE to have EVERY SINGLE pallete. 3. I mean I have seen HUGE sprite sheets. 4. It's going to be Google Drive file/s, so really no need for a MarioWiki upload, you can just send it to my Gmail. SONIC123CDMANIA+&K(B&ATSA) (talk) 07:18, January 11, 2023 (CST)

Reception of Super Mario Galaxy[edit]

Hi, Ray. I hope you've been doing well. I don't know if you remember, but last summer, you asked me to revise the reception section for Super Mario Galaxy. I just wanted to let you know that I have finally done so, as well as added a section beneath on narrative themes. I hope it's alright, and sorry about the wait. I had started graduate studies last fall and I didn't want to engage in major projects on the wiki until I had time to spare. Let me know what you think! I've never written about reviews or awards before, but hopefully I focused on the right stuff. - Nintendo101 (talk) 22:45, January 10, 2024 (EST)

Hey there, I really like your work on the reception section, probably better than I would have wrote, lmao. Good job! And no worries about the wait, I'm a CCA who works 6 days a week with over 8 hour work days so I had something to keep myself occupied. BabyLuigiFire.png Ray Trace(T|C) 01:25, January 11, 2024 (EST)

Mario Kart Wii course maps[edit]

Hi, I'm of the understanding that the minimaps in MKW are actually models? If that is indeed the case, would it be possible to process the images of them to more resemble their in-game appearance in size and outline structure? Most of my worry about this working comes from the battle mode maps, since they tend to be colored and have icons all over them in gameplay, making the lesser lines on them not apparent. I figured I could do it for the racing ones without too much trouble, but I want to know if it's even feasible. Doc von Schmeltwick (talk) 00:32, May 23, 2024 (EDT)

You are correct that they are models, they literally do look exactly like this. However, I think the outline and transparency structure is added as a post-effect that the game does (similar to how it tints the UI on the screen, which is grayscale) (also not sure about how the battle mode maps are tinted, might be the same I haven't attempted to do a battle course map), so I don't think it's possible to modify so it's exactly like the game. BabyLuigiFire.png Ray Trace(T|C) 00:48, May 23, 2024 (EDT)
I know the game is heavy on post-processing, though the outline and transparency effects are simple enough they can probably be accurately added in gimp or paint.net. - though the overpasses worry me a bit, as do the weirdness with the battle mode ones. (On the note of MKW's odd graphical implementation, I know the car icons for the TT records are sprites, but how are the actual "vehicle select" icons with the different colors for each character handled? And for that matter, are the Mii icons just flattened models or something?) Doc von Schmeltwick (talk) 01:06, May 23, 2024 (EDT)
Vehicle select icons iirc are live-rendered generated models similar to Miis (like the Mii battle portrait in Smash Bros. games). Not sure how the 2D Mii icons are handled, probably rendered by the game too. BabyLuigiFire.png Ray Trace(T|C) 01:42, May 23, 2024 (EDT)
I have managed to alter the uploaded map images to look mostly as they do in-game for a consistent resolution, though I nixed the transparency (which can be easily added if needed, all except Galaxy Colosseum use 75-point transparency on a normal blend) and did not add the start/finish lines, though they too can be added if deemed necessary. The only issues that exist are a very marginal line thickness thing, but other than that, I think they're pretty on-point. Doc von Schmeltwick (talk) 14:49, June 24, 2024 (EDT)
