That's an option. I see it as a reasonable one. Can a dev prove Bent and I wrong?

Doq....I don't see that code anywhere, yet I can still pick all my stages on Random. Here are the codes I use in my custom build for custom SSS

Actually, I have the stage expansion, random works fine, and added stages can be selected through random.

Me too, Lightning. I don't have the code Doqtor Kirby has shown me. I've shown my codes.
Lightning, you've played my build once. Do you remember if you could random all the stages?
I'll run some tests to double check, but I'm pretty sure of myself.

I can comfirm this on my custom build. I don't use your build. :p

I get random freezes on random every now and then regardless of what codes I use. I don't feel that the stages was ever the issue.

1. I think he means...Lavender Town??
2. Shadow Moses is gone? I haven't noticed.


Well-Known Member
Definitely means Lavender Town. Or else I managed to nearly instantaneously translate "Green Smashville with ghosts" incorrectly, which would be quite impressive.

I'd personally rather see Norfair- over Shadow Moses Island, but I admit I'm not exactly a fan of Lavender Town either. It feels really small (but I guess playing Falco makes me biased toward larger stages, even though I do like Metal Cavern...).

Hazards. :rolleyes:

....where are the hazards in Shadow Moses?
The walls breaking? The walls respawning?
Those aren't hazards....
When the Halberd machines attack you...those are hazards.

Yo what's up guys.

If you ask me, that's not a good reason for excluding the Stage Expansion code. Who picks Random that often anyway? Use a random number generator, roll some dice, or draw a number out of a hat. The extra stages are worth it.
That sounds like a very poor trade-off to me. "Hey, if you want a random stage from a list, then you're gonna have to jump through some extra hoops instead using the built-in feature!"

That's an option. I see it as a reasonable one. Can a dev prove Bent and I wrong?
Um.... who's proving what now? I'm confused.

About that code. It makes all stages selectable via Random, but breaks Random Stage Select. If you use the Stage Expansion pack, but not that code, Random Stage Select will work normally for the default stage slots, but the added slots will never get picked. Correct me if I'm wrong, but I believe that's how it works. What's your excuse for not taking this route? You could put all your Tournament-legal stages in the original 41 slots.
That is how it works. Our "excuse"? Let me make a hypothetical; You have a list of 41 stages in your Random Stage Switch, with a number of stages that aren't selectable outside of random. You think that stage X should be legal (or maybe it's one of your favorites), and therefore in the Random. However, stage X is an added stage via the SEP, and can never be random-d.

The logical answer to this would simply be to move stage X into the Random by swapping its slot with another stage, right? Well... no. That may work for YOU (not anyone in specific), but not for other players with differing views/tastes on stages, who may think that stage X is garbage.

I could elaborate more on this, but I think I'll instead suggest what could potentially remedy our issue of wanting stages, yet not wanting to ruin anybody's time. I haven't been able to test this myself, so I'll need help verifying if anybody has tried it out;
Assuming an SEP stage is not selected, then is it possible to have WiFi matches between an SEP build of Minus and a non-SEP build, without the matches desynching? Or, not desynching any more than they do already? :rolleyes:

Green smashville with ghosts isn't doing it for me.
That's offensive to ghosts and the color green.

Shadow Moses is gone? I haven't noticed.
Neither have I... and I'm the stage guy! How'd that happen???

The Concept

Philosopher & Assassin
Yes, Tybis. Based on my understanding of stages and the SEP, that should be fine, but one would have to be extra sure that the non SEP stages are identical to each other, like always.
However, some, not me, may think it a hassle to have to be careful of what stage they pick though. I think it's a good idea.

That sounds like a very poor trade-off to me. "Hey, if you want a random stage from a list, then you're gonna have to jump through some extra hoops instead using the built-in feature!"

The current trade-off is "Hey guys, a few of us like Random, so we're dramatically reducing the stage list and having to cut/not add popular stages because we don't want to jump through extra hoops to have like 40% more places to fight in-game."

Or maybe view it as "We'd like to cut a whole bunch of content in gameplay to make a feature of the menu work right, because one button working properly in the menu is more important than adding variety/awesomeness to the gameplay."

The trade-off you highlight seems significantly better than the ones I've noted.

Keep in mind, Thor, that the forum members are not the only ones who enjoy Brawl Minus.
Who is speaking for them? No one, yet they do matter just as much as we do.
It is my understanding that we want more people to come to Minus. If so, then to me it makes more sense to limit stages, than to have a broken random feature that can potentially push people away. Minus is broken, but not that kind of broken.
The best plan would be to have the extra stages, with a working random feature. If you want an example of an active member who uses Random: me and my local group, and possibly others.
I will also say that I've never experienced a freezing with Random stage select, both in official Minus 3.3 and in my custom, which both use different codes, it seems.
I'd really like to see the extra stages return, and I would like to help with the process of finding a solution.


The Learning Star Warrior
Is minus ever gonna get their own custom fd and battlefield? We really should.

Like how PM has their own FD? That depends. What would it even be? PM's was a no-brainer, because it's just Melee's platform with some texture swapping for the BG. I guess a Minus one would need to be completely original, or a more extreme version of Brawl's... but I'm not really sure what that would look like.
If you have ideas though, be sure to share em.

For the sake of keeping things clean though, I'd suggest continuing this FD discussion in the stage thread.

7 Destination plz
thx @Doqtor Kirby

Here's an idea:

Do what PM did and put all the competitive stages one one page. Neutrals up top, CP's on bottom. Then put all the wacky stages on the second page.


Well-Known Member
They were doing that with stage expansion. That may or may not comeback, so it would be kinda pointless to try and make it work without stage eansion when it already works with stage eansion.

That is assuming they can get stage expansion to work with the turning on and off random stage function.


Well-Known Member
The only difference for Minus' FD is the collision data.
If that's the case, then you could just import Minus' ModelData100, collisions, and STPM (the camera) into this new FD, and it should work without desynching... I think?.

So what specificly am I importing to the smash 4 FD?


Active Member
Can I put in a vote to completely get rid of or change Final Frustration? That stage actually gives me motion sickness
