Texture Usage Info
1: Textures can be used with the NTSC and PAL region versions of MK Wii.
2: Downloads are ZIP files, which contain folders that must be exported into the folder that Riivolution will recognize as the root of the MK Wii ISO.
3: Character textures do include some BRRES files that need to be imported into either Driver.szs or Award.szs. A text document will also be present for some extra help.
4: The character texture SZS files are all meant to be used at the same time, not separately. As a result, you won't find the textures in the SZS File Patch Server.
5: What you see on the images above is what you get when you use the textures.
How to use these Textures
1: Get hold of Riivolution.
2: Create a folder named riivolution on the root of your SD card.
3: Get hold of a Mario Kart Wii Patch Template, and insert it into the riivolution folder. It'll be an XML document, and you can modify it to your liking.
4: Create a folder that'll be recognized as the root of the Mario Kart Wii ISO. I'll be using the name mkwii as the ISO's root folder. However, if you're using those Custom Track Packs, you may be asked to store the contents into the My Stuff folder.
5: Download any one of the texture ZIP files above, and extract the folders into your root folder. The files inside those folders will also be extracted.
6: In terms of the BRRES files, you need to import them into the correct SZS files. The text documents will give you all the information that you'll need.
7: When using Driver.szs and Award.szs, insert them into the following directories.
8: Load up Riivolution, enable your Mario Kart Wii Patch Template, launch the game, and you're all set.
SZS Modifier and Read-Only files
For some reason, the SZS Modifier can't read files that have the read-only status. Johnny! mentioned a way that you can remove the read-only status from files with Command Prompt.
Also, an alternate way to remove the read-only status is to check the file's properties. Uncheck the read-only box and you're all good.Originally Posted by Johnny!
