    Question

    Since this seems to be the only thread online posting about Reggie!... here's what I've discovered.

    *WII Scrubber will replace .arc files no matter what you have them named. I've noticed no difference replacing "01-01.arc" with "newstage.arc"
    *300 goombas on the opening screen = level will not load. Don't do that.
    *Sticking Bowser in any level other than the one he's supposed to be in = notta.
    *Size doesn't seem to matter. If I edit a file form 12kb to 20kb, it will likely work if all is edited correctly. If I do a ton of work on a level and increase the file size...and it freezes... sticking it in a level that was originally bigger still will make it freeze.
    *Loading to USB takes forever to playtest. Might as well just use the oringal disc. Not sure if you can use backups to test with.
    *Sticking a boss in a non-boss level will freeze once the boss has been activated.

    What is the most common reason a level won't load? Too much going on? Too many errors with warp paths? I edited lv1 area 1 = fine. Edited 2 and added a 3rd, checked all paths = not fine.


    Anyone with comments or suggestions?

    I have Riivolution, but my disc drive doesn't always want to work. Hence, I use my USB loader. It takes 20 times longer to test a level. :\

    Yeah like Cile mentioned there is an imposed sprite limit for levels. No idea what the number is but go light at first and use the areas tab as much as possible. Other reason it might not load is no entrance for Mario, or maybe an entrance placed too close to the zone marker. Level entrance should be 10-15 blocks in from of the zone line. Read this.

    Unfortunately Riivolution will not be compatible with backup loaders ever if the authors have anything to say about it (and they do).

    Has anybody figured out how to make coins fall when a POW block is used? I got the star coin to fall, but not the regular coins. And also In world 1-2 can you not make secret caves with the flashlight effect like on the first stage? I got it so mario goes behind walls but you cant see him at all lol You just have to guess where he is lol

    Hello everyone, can someone help me?
    the other day I installed reggie, I dumped the files via Reggie Dumper, then the program worked.
    Then I downloaded the text tilesets, and added them.
    Since they didn't work I erased them and put the "Textures" folder how it originally was, but since then the sprite pallete doesn't load, only the mini-map.
    I erased Reggie, installed it again, dumped the files again, but the pallete won't work.
    There is always the following message:
    "This file doesn't seem to be a valid level"
    And while the levels load correctly the pallete is gone, and I already checked it's not dissactivated.
    Can someone help me how to fix this?

    well, you enter to zone settings, and in the camera section you activate layer 0 spolight, you can make it big or small

    That's a little odd of a problem. My guess would be there's a cache setting somewhere you need to delete. You may want to make an account and post your predicament on the official forums to get help directly from the authors.

    Please DO NOT double post questions across websites.

    Also refrain from double posting your questions as you have in this thread. It's against the rules here and in bad taste. You barely waited an hour from your original post before posting this question on Wiihacks, and only ten minutes before posting it again in this thread.

    I understand you're frustrated, and if someone can help you on either website they will do so. Please do not post this question again.

    You have got to be kidding me! I just watched my son (will be 4 in Oct) go to start menu on pc/select drive N/Wii programs/Reggie/application/file/double click a world/scroll to a level and start editing. He even switches palettes to add enimies. LMAO. Ithian, you were serious when you said this was a very easy program to run. Of course he filled the whole level with way too much but... All by watching me load this a few times.Another couple months and I will lose my senior hacker status around here

    That's awesome, I should change the title to Reggie! - So easy a 3 year-old can do it lol. Just imagine how well he's going to know his way around technology as he grows up.
