Triangle strips only help if the level is crashing due to too many polygons; it won't fix a corrupt ROM or a level broken for any other reason. Did you try exporting each level as XML and importing them into a clean ROM like I suggested before?

Oh wow, this is really exciting! I'm looking forward to trying out the environment mapping when I get home

Yes I did, 7 times actually. The rom is not corrupt, stuff in the rom has been shifted or something. When I import a low texture and polygon level in B.O.B then peaches room will not crash (and many other levels)

Continued in the general help thread as more appropriate.

Not sure if this is a bug or a function of the game/importer - There seems to be no support for negative scale values, which is an issue because I wish to invert a model. I've read the documentation and attempted to do so manually, yet I seem to be missing something (The 'offset' to the bone section both relative and not relative does not appear to be the 'bone section' as described by the documentation of the bone section).

The editor does allow you to enter a negative scale value, after doing so the textures appear to be inside-out however this seems correct given that scaling by a negative value is supposed to do just that - turn the object inside-out. If you need to you could just make the faces all double-sided, for DAE this is described here, can be done for OBJ by adding the option "PDF both" to the material definition and can be set in material settings for IMD. Is there a reason you couldn't just invert it before importing?

The address given at offset 0x08 in the BMD header is the offset from the start of the file at which the bone headers begin. Note that it's stored in Little-Endian format so, for example if it gives the value (0x)"56 34 12 00" then the bones section begins at offset 0x00123456 from the beginning of the file.

  • Fixed bug which didn't properly patch ROM for use with NSMBe's patch insertion
  • Fixed bug whereby texture tiling parameters weren't written correctly when importing models to BMD
  • Fixed issues when importing translucent textures caused by palette not being 4-byte aligned
  • Additional texture parameters are now included when exporting models to DAE
  • Fixed bug in DAE importing caused by empty polylist, triangle etc
  • tags
  • Fixed bug in DAE importing caused by geometry without assigned material
  • Re-added required files from bin/Release/ not copied from Google Code

Shows many people there are making ASM hacks, that first bug which prevents SM64DS ROM's working properly with NSMBe's ASM insertion has been there since October and no-one noticed. :P The reason I didn't spot it was because I had patched mine manually.

This appeared when I tried to open the USA Kiosk Demo rom:

---------------------------
SM64DS Editor
---------------------------
The following error occured while loading the ROM:
Unknown ROM version. Tell Mega-Mario about it.
---------------------------
OK

That's because it's not supported - only the European, US v1 and v2 and one of the Japanese ROM's are supported. Any others aren't supported and there are no plans to support them as the supported versions should do for any one looking to modify it.

Could you not enable support for the demo, if it uses all the same formats?

Why would you want to be able to edit a restricted version instead of the proper version? There's no point - it's not worth the effort. If someone else wants to, the editor's code is open source.

I agree, it is not a priority. I shouldn't have directed it at "you", like a direct request. No pressure intended. :)

EDIT:
About the point: just for fun really, testing things out (e.g. differences to the main game).

If you just wanted to check the contents of the levels, you could extract overlays 8 - 59 from the demo version, insert them using NSMBe into a clean EUR/US/JAP ROM and then let the editor patch it, the levels should open as before.

Will the editor ever support text editing for the level names in the unused stage select?

It already is possible - text entry 0x195:
"While searching for Power
Stars, you found a strange
yellow cap. When you wear it,
you suddenly look and act
just like Wario!
Unfortunately, you also smell
just like him. Plus, your
stubby legs make you a slow
walker.

But, you are also very
powerful. You can break
hard objects just by
punching them!

Now, go retrieve more
Power Stars!"

The three spaces at the start is where the course number would go. You'll notice that this is just before the other level names and uses this entry because it's treated as course number zero, BOB uses 0x196 (+1), WF 0x197 (+2) etc.

But unless you find a way to edit course selects, you cannot play the other missions - unless you swap the course select "255" (which maybe represents "not applicable") with another one.

If someone found where the act selector settings were stored I'd try and add the option to edit them. I don't have the time at the minute to look for it but will try some time.

It's fine. I'm not requesting anything, just saying stuff :P
