Welcome to Mario Making Mods, the home for Super Mario Maker hacking! We want this to be a friendly community, so some rules will have to be followed.

Super Mario Maker FAQ

I downloaded a mod, how do I use it in-game?

For use on the Wii U, here's a video guide you can use
For use on Cemu, get a dump of Super Mario Maker and simply add the update into the dump, then replace each file with a modded file.

What Cemu version should I use?

We have made some preconfigured builds, which has everything unlocked, and some pre-loaded levels for you to play.

The builds we have made depends on what CPU you have. We have build for both Nvidia (Cemu 1.9.1) & AMD (Cemu 1.7.4). Unfortunately for Intel users, you'll have to wait.

How do I make mods

For WiiU/CEMU users, you can use GRAnimated's Github Guide
For 3DS users, you can use the Export/Importing CTPK guide

Super Mario Maker: Vanilla Revamped

Vanilla Revamped is a Super Mario Maker mod that aims to improve the look of the game while staying true to the artstyle of the base game. It aims to add better backgrounds, such as including gradient skies, and fix/improve existing tilesets, whether to make it look nicer or to make it more consistent with the tileset.

What is considered "spam"?

Spam is making:

- A post that is off-topic, meaning that it has nothing to do with the original thread.
- A post that is only a few words long and doesn't contribute anything meaningful to the discussion.
- A thread that doesn't have any real meaning.
- A thread with a poll that is pointless.
- A thread that is an exact duplicate of a pre-existing, recent thread.

If you feel that a thread is spam, then PM an admin and ask them to take a look at it. Don't lecture the poster on the dangers of spamming.

I'm new. Where do I start?

The best place for newcomers to start is the New Members thread where you can introduce yourself to the board. If you have any questions not addressed by the FAQ, feel free to ask them in the proper forum.

Help! I've been banned! What do I do now?

First off, do not create a new account to complain about your ban, as that will just result in a permanent ban from the board.

Check your title, it should mention why you are banned and an expiration date if the ban is temporary.

If you feel that the ban was unfair or if you wish to know exactly why you were banned, PM an admin and calmly ask about it.

Aside from that, the only thing you can do is wait for the ban to expire and make sure you know why it happened. If there is no expiration date, you are most likely banned until further notice, which means that you will have to prove that you have learned your lesson before you can be allowed back.

I feel that a user is being rude to me. What do I do?

Stay cool. Don't further disrupt the thread by responding at all to the rudeness. Let a member of staff know with a link to the offending post(s). Please note that responding to the rudeness is promoting flaming, which is a punishable offense.

What's this Discord thing I keep hearing about?

Discord is a modern chat client where all crazy kinds of things can happen there, but will you take the plunge? Here's the invite.

Can I register more than one account?

No, you may not. Most uses for a secondary account tend to be to bypass bans. The the most common non-malicious use is to have a different name, and we have another feature will allow this cleanly. This feature is called Display Names.

How can I become a moderator or administrator?

If us administrators trust you enough for this. Don't ask us, we may ask you if we ever feel you worthy of being promoted. Being a good and regular member helps, while asking for this doesn't. It also depends whether we feel a need to promote more people, which isn't so often the case.

I have a question about Mario Making Mods not answered here.

Ask a staff member, they can help you. They aren't bad guys!

I have a question about SMM modding.

Post your question over here in order to not make the board look clustered.
How do I get banned?

The standard way

You can do it the standard way. Make derp posts and/or break the rules.

But it's too mainstream.

It will get you banned, but not immediately. You'll likely get a series of warnings before the staff actually starts banning you.

There are more efficient ways of getting banned.


If you show off racism, homophobia or any other form of intolerance, you'll get banned pretty fast, and likely permanently.

Intolerance is the number one cause of war and lots of other showoffs of complete stupidity in the world.

Constantly questioning the authority

This board isn't a dictatorship, the staff is always open to criticism about the actions taken.

Questioning the authority is OK if done in a constructive manner. Constantly doing it with silly arguments and running into the admins, however, is a good way to get yourself banned.

Pissing off the staff

Bad things can happen if you piss off the staff (in special owners). But generally annoying people who are hierarchically superior to you is a good way to get banned.

Teaming up with banned users

Banned users are banned for a reason. Teaming up with them and trying to rebel against authority is a good way to get yourself banned as well.

What are the Rules?
Posting: Don't
Do not ask for copyrighted content, and do not post links to copyrighted materials in the public.
Violators of this rule will be banned. That being said, you can post links to ISO's in PM's.
Do not spam, troll, flame, harass, bash, etc.
Blatantly offensive comments or actions directed at others will not be tolerated. While we do allow members to debate and voice their own opinions, there will be a limit to how far a heated debate can go before it is closed by staff. If you harass someone you will be disciplined.

Please show respect for all members at Mario Making Mods; new or old. Disparaging remarks towards others about race, gender, origin, handicap, age, sexual orientation, personal politics and religion will NOT be tolerated and will most likely be removed by staff. The poster will then be warned or banned (see the Warnings section below for more information on warnings).

Flaming, even in self-defense, is strictly prohibited. If you have something to say, say it respectfully or not at all. If someone is harassing you either use the report function or contact a staff member directly. Replying to a flame post will likely result in the removal of your post as well. Flambaiting, or attempting to draw other members into personally attacking you or eachother is also not allowed.
We have a wide variety of smilies/emoticons for you to enjoy and express yourself but do not put too much in a post.
Do this twice, and you will be warned.
Do not respond to spam, trolling, flaming, harassment, bashing, etc.
The reason is that the staff then has to delete your post as well, and it wastes our time. Instead, report the offending post with the "Report" button in its top-right corner.
If one of your posts is removed don't repost it without staff permission.
This is considered disrespectful and may result in a warning increase.
Do not post someone's personal information without the proper consent.
This includes personal photos, names, addresses, phone numbers, E-mail, instant messenger handles, conversation logs, etc. If the person requests that you remove the subject matter you must comply or else the staff members will intervene.
Do not bump old threads without a good reason.
"I'm having the same problem but none of the answers above have helped" or "Here's some new information about this" are good reasons to bump a thread. "Thanks for posting this" or "bump" are not.
Do not argue with Staff in public about an issue you have.
Use PM's.
User Accounts
Do not make multiple accounts.
This is known as "reregistering" (or simply "reregging"). Each user is allowed only one account. Duplicate accounts will be deleted, and the user's original account will be banned as well.
Do not use PMs to harass other members.
Do not use proxy servers to access the board.
Don't think that the staff can't figure out if you're doing this. If you have a legitimate reason to need a proxy, contact a staff member and explain your situation.
Do not create an account with an inappropriate username.
Such names will be changed.
Don't reuse passwords.
If your account password is leaked on any other site and your account here is abused here because of that, you are responsible.
Posting: Courtesy
Read before you post.
Before asking a question, make sure the answer isn't already there.
Before you start a topic, perform a search to see if the question or topic you wish to create has been made before
If it has, post in the topic that already exists. Duplicate topics will be closed.
Please make the topic title you are creating descriptive, clearly reflecting the topic you are addressing.
Do not make generic titles such as "Question", "I need help", or in full capitals, with an obscene amount of periods, exclamation marks, question marks, etc. These topics will probably go unnoticed, whereas a topic with a descriptive title will gain more interest.
Don't post NSFW, porn, or any inappropriate content.
This is an instant ban.
Don't advertise your website/discord server.
Show some restraint on the amount of images you post.
Posts or topics with many images are a strain on dial-up users, so please be courteous.
This is an English-speaking board.
If you do not know English well, you can write your post in whatever language you are fluent in, provided it is followed by a English translation. You can use Google Translate or an equivalent service for this. People of all languages are welcome, we just need a quick way of reading your posts with the least amount of confusion possible.
Do not bring outside drama to this board.
Outside issues with users stays outside of this board. We aim to be a friendly community, so this is not tolerated. Anybody bringing in drama from outside of the Mario Making Mods boundaries (which is the fourms and the Discord Server) will be banned. There is no reason to bring in external drama that does not have anything to do with this place.

Accumulate 3 warning, and you will be banned for a day.
Accumulate 6 warnings, and you will be banned for 2 days.
Accumulate 9 warnings, and you will be banned for a week.
Accumulate 12 warnings, and you will be banned for a month
Accumulate 16 warnings, and you will be banned permanently.

Warnings and Bans are at the discretion of Staff so the above may not apply in your situation. Different infractions may result in different punishments.

Harsher bans may be issued if a user racks up multiple warnings in a short amount of time or does something idiotic such as flooding the board or posting questionable material.

The administration team reserves the right to make changes to the rules with or without proper notice.
