However, I do not suggest using a USB in the long term if it has less than 2GB of space maximum, since it may be slow and that would be annoying for you.
Ok, I knew about levels and graphics, but not episodes. I thought they might not show up on the menu. The USB I'm using has 3.74GB max storage, and the only thing on there is SMBX2 (when I found out I couldn't run it from there), so speed shouldn't be a problem if it's 2GB or less that causes slowdown.

Ok. I have it also copied on the C drive. I'll probably have the levels, episodes and saves on the USB, and the rest of the game files on the laptop. Also, do I need the two .exe files that are named "vc_redist.x64/86"? Are they crucial to running SMBX, or (as the "redist" part seems to suggest) for redistributing the game to others (which I won't be doing)?

Hope that helps.
I do have what was my main laptop which has like 1TB of storage or something, but the problem is I believe the power socket has come off of the motherboard and needs resoldering. The reason I've been away from SMBX for several months is that I can't find a single person who can (or wants to) fix it.
