After being stuck for a while and finally giving in, I decided to look at some walkthroughs. They keep talking about these Power Flowers, of which i've run into... 0 And those "?" blocks are still ghosted and unusable.
I think I'm far enough in the game that I could figure one of these things out, I have 60-70 stars, but have only unlocked Mario... And i dont think i can unlock any other characters without these other things.
Joke topic or not, I make a point to help if someone asks, and I can.
In the main lobby, on the first floor, there's a beam of light that appears after you get about 15 stars. It's pointed at the sun symbol on the ground.
As Mario, stand on said sun symbol, go into first person view and look at the source of the light. You get brought to a level with the red ? switch in the middle tower. Hitting that switch makes all red ? block become tangible.
When you hit those red ? blocks, you get a power flower, which gives a different effect based on which character you're playing as. And for Mario, sometimes it's a power flower, sometimes it's a feather. They have different effects :)
Hope I helped :) Peace
