A modpack for Super Smash Bros, Melee for practicing tech.
Training Mode is a modpack for Super Smash Bros. Melee that aims to streamline practice by providing pre-made individual training scenarios. This mod utilizes the event mode present in Super Smash Bros. Melee and reworks them to focus around specific techniques, complete with automatic savestate functionality to allow for rapid-fire practice. Some events have included video tutorials playable in-game (ISO version only) to teach the player about the tech and how to perform it. In addition to these events, Training Mode also includes onscreen text displays which provide you with information otherwise unavailable to you mid-game.
1.) Fizzi36 wrote a program to mass assemble .asm files, it is included in the "Build TM Codeset" folder in this repository. All you need to do is launch the "Build Training Mode Codeset.bat" file and the codes.gct file will be generated and placed in the "Additional ISO Files" folder. This folder contains all the files you need to place into the ISO to run Training Mode minus one file, the Start.dol.
2.) The Start.dol is the game's executable and contains copyrighted code, so for that reason I cannot distribute it. However, if you manage to extract the Start.dol file out of your own ISO file you can patch the dol file to load the codeset created prior. Look for the file named "Drag Melee v1.02 Start.dol Here.bat" located in the "Build TM Codeset" folder and drag your extracted 1.02 NTSC Start.dol file onto the .bat file. The modified Start.dol will also be place in the "Additional ISO Files" folder.
3.) You can now copy the contents of "Additional ISO Files" to an NTSC 1.02 Melee root folder and rebuild the ISO. I recommend using GCR.
Note: I haven't tested this on Linux.
1.) Install brew
brew install go wine xdelta. This will install
winefor running GCR,
gofor building our mass assembler, and
xdeltafor patching the .iso.
3.) Download a copy of GCRebuilder
4.) Clone or download the JLaferri/gecko repo
$PROJECTROOTprefers to the root of this project
cdinto wherever you downloaded the JLaferri/gecko repo (e.x
go build. This will generate a an executable called
gecko. Place that executable in the
$PROJECTROOT/Build TM Codeset/macdirectory of this project
3.) You'll need the
Start.dolfile from your Melee iso, this is where
winecomes in handy. Run
wine $PATH_TO_GCREBUILDER.exe, GCRebuilder should open its own window, from there you can extract your
Start.dol. Your Melee iso md5 hash should be equal to 0e63d4223b01d9aba596259dc155a174.
1.) cd into
$PROJECTROOT/Build TM Codeset/mac, and run
./gecko build. This will mass assemble the
.asmfiles in the
$PROJECTDIR/ASMdirectory, you should end up with a
$PROJECTDIR/Additional ISO files.
Writing to ../../Additional ISO Files//codes.gct... Successfuly wrote codes to ../../Additional ISO Files//codes.gct Process time was 25.577666254s
./modifyStartDol.sh $PATH_TO_YOUR_START.DOL, where
$PATH_TO_YOUR_START.DOLis where the
Start.dolyou extracted is located. This will generate a new
$PROJECTROOT/Additional ISO Files/Start.dol
3.) You can now copy the contents of
$PROJECTROOT/Additional ISO Filesto an NTSC 1.02 Melee root folder and rebuild the ISO, using GCRebuilder as we did in Step 3 in Before your first build.
1.) When running GCRebuilder with wine it crashes with dyld: Symbol not found: _gliCreateContextWithShared
A) this solves the issue.
2.) xdelta3: target window checksum mismatch: XD3INVALIDINPUT
Start.dolyou extracted from Melee isn't correct. Make sure your .iso has a md5 hash equal to
