Tell them stuff about in the level, like:

Did you use custom models or models already in-game? If the former, how many polygons and textures are being used for it? What size(s) are the texture(s)?
What enemies/items/power-ups/etc. did you use?
Did you use any NPCs? If so, did you add text so they could speak without a game crash?
If you used launch stars, do they all have paths assigned?

Also there is a debug screen for game crashes that has to be enabled through Riivolution (I assume you know how Riivolution works.) Click here for more info on that. You can run the debug screen patch alongside your mod so that when the game crashes it has one of two options:

1) It will bring up a black screen filled with numbers and code. If this happens, one of the objects in the level wasn't set up correctly. If you can't tell which one, look in the SMG/2 object database (click here) for more info. Also send a picture of the part of the debug screen at and below the part where it says "LR Save". This is at the bottom of the debug screen so use the D-Pad on the Wii remote to scroll down until it's all in view.

2) The debug screen doesn't appear even when it's enabled. This means the game is trying to load something but can't because it's missing or too large. This happens most when custom models are used that have too many triangles/polygons or use too many or too large textures. A nice rule of thumb I use: never have a model with more than 55,000 polygons and textures no larger than 256 by 256 pixels large (any size larger than that is unnecessary due to the Wii's low resolution.)

Hope this helps! :)

i used no npc's and no custom models i also have a lot of twhomps (it's the level theme) placed with mostly the sizes 1 and 0.5 i tried to play it on dolphin and it pops up a lot of errors then when i click ok on all of them dolphin shuts down so hope you can help me

(it would really helpfull if you downloaded the level but i don't force you to do that i am not a troll and when you click the link you can see exactly what you download it is also a rar file so it has no ability to kill your computer)

Actually, .rar files can do much worse.

Also, if it's Dolphin giving you a bunch of errors, then it's probably because some settings aren't configured properly. An actual Wii system won't give you errors like that and shut off.

yes i use the run from a folder method

these are the errors: invalid read from 0x41474252, PC = 0x80070aac
intCPU Unknown instruction 00000000 at PC = 00000008 last_PC = 8132ffc8 LR = 80070ac4

would you be satisfied if i change the download format to .zip it is the hacked galaxy maybe you can have a look at if i did something wrong

thanks in advance

Oh I see… Thwomps need paths to walk on. If you don't know, there are objects in the game called paths that determine the direction an object can go. All of your Thwomps requires paths so they know where to walk; they don't walk around randomly like in other games such as Super Mario 64. To assign a path to a Thwomp, on the obj_arg panel scroll down until you find the argument that says something like "PathID". Fill this in with the number of the path it will use. Then move the path points around until it makes the path you want the Thwomp to go in. Repeat for every Thwomp.

On another note, some enemies require paths to operate or the game will crash. A few examples are koopas, magikoopas, thwomps, flying goombas, etc. Look in the object database I linked in my previous post to see whether or not any object you're using requires paths.

thwomps don’t need paths, whomps do.

...

I'll check it out for ya. ;)

But if my computer gets a virus, YOU ARE IN BIG TROUBLE! XD


EDIT: Ok no virus. That's good.

So...

1. WHY are you using about a billion death barriers?
2. WHY are you modding Yoshi star galaxy and not Flip Swap Galaxy?
(Flip Swap Galaxy is less prone to crashing, which is why we make custom levels over it and THEN port them over other galaxies)

It would appear to me that you have an unmodified boss. Now, It might be screwed up somehow. However, you didn't even include all of the zones in the download!
You missed: BossJugumZone & MiniGravityZone

I know nothing about this boss fight ATM.

But porting back over is really easy. BUT we'll cross that bridge when we get there ;)

The Whomp King boss requires cutscenes and activation switches, like any other boss. Also, a properly set up Scenario file is required as well. Take a look at the zones that have these objects.

also does someone know how to add zones and if it is really nessesairy to have multiple (for a big galaxy)

Galaxys have multiple zones, I'm not sure if that's the reason though...

Adding zones is... Not easy, but not extremely difficult either.
Just add the zone to the zone listing. Easier said than done though...

About the death area: It is an area that, when entered, kills Mario. Like when he falls into the void. You can see the area of effect if you click settings, show area size.

The name: Names are stored in MSBT files. You can extract them using WiiExplorer and edit them with Nuntius Novus. The filepath for level names are
/LocalizeData/UsEnglish/SystemMessage.arc/GalaxyName.msbt
/LocalizeData/UsEnglish/SystemMessage.arc/GalaxyNameShort.msbt
