Yes, I don't have a tutorial but Nintendont has support for "Ocarina cheats" aka Gecko codes. You can probably ask around Melee Discord servers to see if anyone can help you put the codeset into a .gct file, and where to put it on your SD card.
Your friend has to log into FFZ and add the emotes to their channel, or you have to be a channel editor, which then gives you access to the channel on FFZ.
The unabridged version of the guideline is this: If your 2x2 emote has some kind of creativity/utility/combo-ability to it that isn't possible as a single emote, then it's accepted. It's typically declined if the reason seems to be "We want it bigger" or "You can't see enough detail if it's a single emote". If you explain your reasoning in the emote notes on why it's better as a 2x2 emote, then it's more likely to be accepted. We also usually accept 2x1 or 1x2 emotes.
They should be usable on your channel within an hour after adding them. If they still don't work, there might be something wrong with your FFZ extension. You should check to see if other channels' FFZ emotes work. If they don't, then you can try reinstalling FFZ.
Emote names can't be common words such as "Wink". You have to pick an emote name that isn't something people would type in normal English, such as "WinkFace" or "ffzWink". You can find the notes on the emote's page by clicking on the emote name.
Sorry to hear that happened. :( The only way is to use Wii homebrew to copy it from an SD card, or to copy the 20XXTE data over from another TE memory card.
That definitely is a strange issue. The search function is really awful right now, and we're looking to improve it in the near future, so you can expect it to be fixed once we do that.
It's something we want to look into, but it's complicated both from a technical standpoint and a rights ownership standpoint.
It's not possible. Texture mods are exclusive to homebrew setups with a modified game ISO.
Absolutely! Lots of Twitch partners have both Twitch sub emotes and FFZ emotes in their channel.
You should make sure the emotes are added to your channel by clicking "Add to Channel" for the emotes. Aside from that, it can take up to an hour after you add them for the emotes to work.
I don't think anyone ever fully reverse engineered the compression algorithm for save files, so right now there's no good way to get the data right from the .gci file. If you load the file in Dolphin and do a memory dump, it's possible, though.
A long time ago, we were getting a ton of submissions where people would simply take all kinds of emotes or images and submit them as 4-part or even 9-part emotes. Because it was causing a ton of uncreative, low-quality content to flood FFZ, we started prohibiting submissions of emotes that are enlarged into 4-part emotes. If you think your emotes don't fall into this category, then feel free to message me on Twitch with the emotes in question and an explanation of their use case.
Sorry for the wait, once in a blue moon we get backed up and approvals take up to a few days. It should hardly be much longer though.
Adding exactly what you request may happen in the future but could take a fair amount of work, but I'll pass it onto the team. But if you enable "Tab-complete Alternatie Input", you can cycle through options with Tab and use Space to confirm, which is more similar to what you describe. It's less tedious than having to use arrow keys and Enter.
We have a lot of options to hide bits-related stuff. You can hide pinned cheers, condense all of a message's bits into a single item (reducing spam), and disable the bits animation as well. It doesn't 100% hide/disable absolutely everything bits-related, but it definitely takes care of eliminating the more intrusive aspects of them.
Usually a maximum of 2 days.
At the peak of Yoshi's flutter, or a few frames before the peak, release A and hold it again as quickly as possible. If you keep A released for too long then Yoshi will lose height.
If you click on each emote's page you can view the 4x size emote and download that one. But there's no option to mass download emotes or anything.
Sorry, it's actually on the donate page on the website. You can hide your supporter badge from there.
Sylux98 is an old-school FFZ user who had that many emotes before we updated our system with the emote limits, etc. Old users with more than the max emotes were given that many as their max, so as to not force them to remove emotes. Very few users have that at this point.
It won't affect anything, 1.4e only has a minor bug fix that doesn't affect Melee. I just need to update the download link.
Look through the FAQ on the site and ask for help in the chat as well. If we decide the card is defective, then I can have smashgg send you a replacement.
