A page to make stuff easy to find for newcomers.
Just a small thing the threads mention: WE WILL NOT HELP YOU FIND AN ISO! We do not care how you got, we do not want to know how you got it.

1. List of useful threads



1.1. File extracting


This tells you how to extract the necessary files from your SMG1/2 disc so read this thoroughly.

1.2. The Dolphin emulator


This helps you with testing your levels later on in dolphin as you can change the files and directly play it on the computer to see the changes.

1.3. SMG editor: Whitehole


This is the location of the editor we use to edit SMG1/2 it also tells you what you need, this is also in the readme.txt of whitehole.

1.4. Basic object importing and tool links


This is where you can find all the links to the needed tools (its better to just open the tools inside the GalaxyTools/programs folder rather than using GalaxyTools.exe) and shows a few of the bugs you can get when trying to import an object so read thoroughly.

The above forum will also tell you that you need Python and PyQt4.
Pythons installer packages should be at the top so just find the one that matches your operating system.
For PyQt4 scroll down a bit and find the installer for your operating system (SIP not required) and then install it using that.

1.5. NWP importing guide


Just in case the above link fails to explain certain points.
This tells you how to properly hack objects/planets into SMG1/2 using everything above so once again read thoroughly.

1.6. Guide to (nearly) everything in SMG2


This is a giant wall of text very helpful thread if you want to understand the very way super mario galaxy is set up, what everything is, what does what and that sort of stuff.
So I HIGHLY recommend you look at it every now and then as there is lots of stuff documented there that will help with your general understanding of Super Mario Galaxy.

1.7. Near exact pastebin of what I did to get my object to work



This is a pastebin of steps I follow to get a working object (after getting all tools/folders) in case you can not get it to work.
