Hello[edit]

Nice job uploading the images for Mario Kart Tour! Mari0fan100 (talk) 00:10, May 25, 2019 (EDT)

Thank you! Right now I'm uploading the course maps and updating the course pages, then I'll update the kart pages. SwampyGator (talk) 00:12, May 25, 2019 (EDT)

Release dates[edit]

It's nice how you're adding the newest Mario Kart information to our articles, but if there's one thing to keep in mind, it's this -- don't add Mario Kart Tour to the games appeared in section of infoboxes on the course or kart articles, because the game technically isn't out yet (it kinda is, but a select few people are giving the game a beta test, so it's not actually out to the public yet). It can be added once the game actually comes out for the public to enjoy (and despise the micro-transactions) this year. You're not in trouble or anything for now, just wanted to let you know. – Owencrazyboy9 (talk) 01:19, May 25, 2019 (EDT)

I'm sorry, I didn't realize. I stopped after you removed it the first couple times, but it's still on some of the other pages. If you don't get to them, I'll go back and change them after I finish the kart and glider pages. SwampyGator (talk) 01:21, May 25, 2019 (EDT)

Italics / tense[edit]

Hello. I've notice you sometimes "copied/pasted" the format of other game titles on the page, but keep in mind as you've probably noticed that when you do type out a title out yourself, it should be in italics (so Mario Kart Tour must be written as Mario Kart Tour, done by enclosing it in two apostrophes: ''[[Mario Kart Tour]]''). Also, we write in present tense, so "The Gold Glider returned in Mario Kart Tour." should just be "The Gold Glider returns in Mario Kart Tour." Thanks and keep contributing.

Duplicate Image[edit]

Just a heads up: File:MKT Icon NewYorkMinute.png is a duplicate of File:MKT Icon NewYorkMinuteT.png. The wiki will warn you when you are trying to upload a duplicate image. Please make sure to look out for this next time. LuigiMaster123Icon.png LuigiMaster123 14:40, September 28, 2019 (EDT)

Whoopsie, thanks for that. I usually click ignore warnings since I just copy and paste the description from a previous page, so thanks for notifiying me. SwampyGator (talk) 20:41, September 28, 2019 (EDT)
You added a new revision saying you fixed the problem, but it was just the same image. Super Mushroom Artwork - Super Mario 3D World.png Obsessive Mario Fan MK8DX Mario Icon.png 19:24, October 1, 2019 (EDT)
On my screen the image is fixed. Maybe you have to refresh your cache? CTRL+F5

I held CTRL and pressed reload. That...worked. Sorry for the misunderstanding, my computer just didn't display the right image. Super Mushroom Artwork - Super Mario 3D World.png Obsessive Mario Fan MK8DX Mario Icon.png 22:41, October 1, 2019 (EDT)
It's fine lol, I was very confused about it to at first! SwampyGator (talk) 10:59, October 2, 2019 (EDT)

RE:Consistency[edit]

It'd be easier if the names were two words, tbh. And you didn't move all of them to be like that, you missed Diddy's for example. And you didn't fix any of the links after moving them. Aside from the abbreviated names "BB" and "DD", they're fine as is, but you can move those ones. Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 19:59, October 3, 2019 (EDT)

I actually proposed something similar before. The reasons there still stand, one game isn't really enough to justify the template (and I haven't really been able to come up with a replacement idea). Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 20:08, October 3, 2019 (EDT)

RE: Grand Star[edit]

Ah, thank you! Rosalina pose SMM.png Mario JC 20:14, October 10, 2019 (EDT)

Internal name of Nossie in Mario Kart Tour[edit]

First of all, thanks for uploading the icons of the courses with the different preferred drivers, you were really quick!

Sorry if I bother you, but what is the internal name of Nossie in Mario Kart Tour, i.e. the name of the file containing its model?--Mister Wu (talk) 22:26, October 23, 2019 (EDT)


Mario Kart Tour Badges images[edit]

Hey Swampy! I see you uploaded all of these week's new images from MKT already! That was fast! However, I'd like to ask to wait a bit for me to upload the Badges every weeks since I found a source of better quality than the ones ripped from the game files (the official website). The thing is that they seem to be behind this week and haven't added this week's new badges, but I'm sure they'll eventually do so.

Thanks! GamblerMario (talk) 12:12, October 24, 2019 (EDT)

MKT character images[edit]

So are those extracted from the game itself or promotional material? Depending on which, they should be put with sprites (for former case) or artwork (for latter case) regarding gallery placement. Doc von Schmeltwick (talk) 20:07, October 25, 2019 (EDT)

OK, so they are all sprites then. Doc von Schmeltwick (talk) 21:18, October 25, 2019 (EDT)

Mario Kart Tour icons for characters, kart and gliders[edit]

I'm sorry if I bother you, but could you please upload to the wiki the three icons used respectively to represent characters, karts and gliders on the main menu of Mario Kart Tour? Those would be very useful to make tables on the main page more readable by replacing text.--Mister Wu (talk) 16:23, October 27, 2019 (EDT)

By the way, do you have a Discord account?--Mister Wu (talk) 19:21, October 27, 2019 (EDT)

MKT hidden badge[edit]

Hi again, by any chance would it be possible to get one of the hidden, silhouetted badges? Any one of the plainly shaped ones like the question mark or circular ones would do. It's for a placeholder on {{MKTChallenge}}. Rosalina pose SMM.png Mario JC 06:50, October 30, 2019 (EDT)

In that case I've used one of the ripped badges and applied the same opacity as in-game. Thanks again anyway! Rosalina pose SMM.png Mario JC 21:58, October 31, 2019 (EDT)


MKT course sprite images[edit]

Hey Swampy! Bothering you again with this game's rips. I've been thinking about remodeling the course list (see my sandbox: User:GamblerMario/Sandbox) because my original format was not done with having to use more than 1 image per version and right now I think it looks ugly. My question is, do you have better versions of MKT Icon MarioCircuit2C.png these? The best I can find is 256x85 and they look blurred and crappy. Thanks in advance! GamblerMario (talk) 15:13, November 5, 2019 (EST)

Hey Swampy! Finished with the stages but I can't find the New York Minute ones, can you take over please? Thanks! GamblerMario (talk) 17:40, November 14, 2019 (EST)

Barrels and Jars[edit]

I see you've been doing work on Mario Kart Tour. Can you find the internal names for Bowser Barrel, Snake jar and Snake? Bumper and Flipper may be needed as well since their current source is unconfirmed. Thanks in advance. LinkTheLefty (talk) 18:30, November 15, 2019 (EST)

Seems the snake objects weren't touched up from Mario Kart 7 unlike the dinosaur/Noshi. There wouldn't happen to be any other adjacent "Barrel" files next to BarrelBomb, would there? LinkTheLefty (talk) 14:09, November 16, 2019 (EST)

Character art / signature[edit]

Hi, I was wondering how you're getting the character artwork, because I've noticed rough edge pixels around them (and some jpg artifacts).

Also:
