Mario Kart Wii/BRLYT Text

From The Cutting Room Floor
Jump to navigation Jump to search

This is a sub-page of Mario Kart Wii.

BRLYT files are responsible for menu layouts, and they have a section in them to place text. The final game uses BMG files for text storage instead, leaving the BRLYT files with a bunch of old and placeholder text, some of which is untranslated.

You can view these messages in-game by using the following Gecko code:

Title.szs/../press_start.brlyt PRESS (+) or START - Interestingly, it means that you originally would not press the A button on the title screen but instead the + button (or START on a GameCube controller).
Title.szs/../common_w017_message.brlyt イチローさんのフレンドコードは

1111 - 1111 - 1111 - 1111

になります。マリオカートを
とおくはなれたともだちとあそぶために
ひつようなばんごうです
わすないようにメモしておいてください
Ichiro's friend code is

1111-1111-1111-1111.

You'll need these codes
to play Mario Kart with
friends who are far away.
Write them down so you won't forget!
Friend codes were originally 16 digits long? (unless it's talking about a Wii friend code). Ichiro might be referring to Ichiro Suzuki on the programming team.
Title.szs/../common_w055_message_connect.brlyt 灡攱 ??? Possibly just garbage data.

TAKAHIRO TAKAYAMA
SATORU IWATA
SHIGERU MIYAMOTO
- Misspelling of "executive". Also in the final game, Satoru Iwata is the only one credited as the Executive Producer.
