First time you run BrawlStats you won't be able to see almost any stats.

Run BrawlStats for the first time. This will create the needed data on your SD.
This is normal, and you MUST do it. The first time it will create a file with all your game information that will be used on future sessions.

Now you can play a Brawl session as long as you want.

Once you have the data on your SD you can play Super Smash Bros. Brawl as long as you want.
Once you are finished run BrawlStats again and it will ask you if you want to create a new session, answer always YES.

Now you will be able to see the information about the first session! :D

After the Brawl session, you must run BrawlStats again. It will ask you if you want to create a new session, answer always YES. And now you will be able to see all the information about that session! :D

 +
From now on, you will have to run BrawlStats after any Brawl Session. This is obligatory even if you don't want to save a session. If you don't follow this rule, next session you create will have the information of the last session plus the previous unsaved one, so remember to run BrawlStats afterany session.

BrawlStats is a Wii application that will have to be ran after a Super Smash Bros. Brawl session. It will store automatically on your SD your results and then you will be able to navigate freely through a clean GUI that will show you a lot of information that Brawl doesn't store (or doesn't show). It can be like a database of your Brawl matches.


What I need?

  • A homebrew capable Wii
  • Super Smash Bros. Brawl save data (PAL or NTSC-USA)
  • An IOS with NAND permissions
  • SD card


Configuration

First of all, load BrawlStats from your favourite homebrew loading method.

It will start the configuration wizard. It's pretty self-explanatory except for the IOS question if you don't know what NAND permissions are. BrawlStats needs a fakesigned IOS in order to run.

  • 3.2 Wii users: just select IOS36 and you are ready!
  • 3.3 or higher Wii users:
    • If you have a cIOS (recommended), select it.
    • If you don't want to install a cIOS, you must recover the trucha bug using Trucha Bug Restorer for example.

Once you finished the configuration wizard, a brawlstats.cfg file will be created on SD:/brawlstats/. If sometime you need to modify this configuration you will have to delete this file, and BrawlStats will start the wizard again.


Usage

Run BrawlStats for the first time. This will create the needed data on your SD.

Once you have the data on your SD you can play Super Smash Bros. Brawl as long as you want.

After the Brawl session, you must run BrawlStats again. It will ask you if you want to create a new session, answer always YES. And now you will be able to see all the information about that session! :D

From now on, you will have to run BrawlStats after any Brawl Session. This is obligatory even if you don't want to save a session. If you don't follow this rule, next session you create will have the information of the last session plus the previous unsaved one, so remember to run BrawlStats afterany session.

Menu & controls

  • A: next page
  • B: previous page
  • D-PAD: navigate and/or scroll tables in the current page
  • 2 (or Z on GC pad): save screenshot to the SD
  • HOME: help screen


We will group pages into tabs in order to make the navigation easier. Every tab contains different pages. Explanation of tabs and pages:
