    Question Custom Characters Tutorial?

    I just got some character models of Classic Sonic Classic Tails and
    Metal Sonic and i was wandering if there is a tutorial to get them in mkwii. I also got a model of sonic from brawl as well.

    I cant really help much here, but what I can tell you is that if you're using the models from sonic generations, they'll be too complex. Mario Kart Wii wasn't really built to handle complex models. But, if you can manage to simplify the models to about 700 faces (I'm not 100% sure what the real number is), then you'll be set.

    Yoshi's model has about 720 faces, I think. I'd use that as a guideline.

    Well earlier today I was finally instructed in how to create a custom character.

    I can already tell where you got the models from, most likely Modeler's resource. Unfortunately, There are only two Classic Sonics & Two classic Tails available publicly. The first two are custom, & high poly. The second, Sonic Generations, even more faces.

    Then SSBB models are out of the question, they are just too complex for Mario Kart Wii.

    The character I'm making has only 740 faces, so I'm good. I was planning on writing a tutorial later on too, as the only ones existing do not get into specific error solving or basic things for starters.
