Requirements[edit | edit source]

-A hex editor (I'd recommend PSPad, download here)

-An XML or text editor (I'd recommend PSPad)

-NewerSMBW's Loader.bin file

-A USB or SD Device to launch NewerSMBW

-Riivolution and Wii or Wii U

Tutorial[edit | edit source]

Step 1[edit | edit source]

Open the Loader.bin file in the hex editor and you should see these words:

Step 2[edit | edit source]

Hit "Ctrl-H" on the keyboard to find & replace text in the hex editor. Type NewerRes in the "Find" box. Now think up of a word that is 8 characters long, not more, or less, and put it in the "Replace" box, then click "OK" to replace all the occurrences of the text. For an example, we'll use the name Demo-Res. Make sure to have the "As Text" option checked under both of the boxes, otherwise it'll focus on the hex values instead of the text.


Step 3[edit | edit source]

Save the Loader.bin file. Now rename the /NewerRes folder (in the NewerSMBW folder) to the word that you thought up (we used the name Demo-Res, for example).

Go into the folder you just renamed and open up the DLCode files with the hex editor:

  • DLCodeEU_1.bin
  • DLCodeEU_2.bin
  • DLCodeJP_1.bin
  • DLCodeJP_2.bin
  • DLCodeUS_1.bin
  • DLCodeUS_2.bin

Hit "Ctrl-H" on the keyboard to find & replace text in the hex editor. Type NewerRes in the "Find" box, then put the word that you thought up (we used the name Demo-Res, for example), in the "Replace" box, then click "OK" to replace all the occurrences of the text. Repeat this for all the DLCode files above.


Step 4[edit | edit source]

Save all the DLCode files. Open up the NewerSMBW.xml file with your XML or text editor, and hit "Ctrl-H" on the keyboard to find & replace text in the XML or text editor. Type NewerRes in the "Find" box, then put the word that you thought up (we used the name Demo-Res, for example), in the "Replace" box, then click "OK" to replace all the occurrences of the text. Now save the NewerSMBW.xml file, and launch NewerSMBW up to see if everything works.
