    Yes, you can.

    You can also play online by injecting a header into the rom, and renaming it to 3dz. See the Thread on this for details.

    I see, thanks. I will try injecting a header, but feel saver with using a retail card for online intensive games.

    If you do buy it anyway, you can dump your own cartridge and play the backup from the gateway cart, will work online just like your original cart but save you some swapping.

    I like the idea of dumping it on to the gateway card, thanks for that. Does the use of a header from another game really work?

    I believe it is perfectly safe to update it on an emulated version of 8.1 keep in mind that 8.2 will be out soon and as long as you're using your own copy of mario kart it should be fine!

    sorry to revive this thread, but i got my MK7 retail today.

    Can I play it on version 4.4 and it saves the savegame when I use it with gateway?
    Can I play online with 4.4 until gateway arrives?

    Yes.

    Yes if the cart has the 1.1 update included.

    You are welcome.
    But to be 100 % clear, I have not experimented it by myself.


    This must work because MK7 use a 512 kb save file, and not use a 6.x encryption. To use your save, it would be necessary to dump it to the root of the SD Card when you would want use only your own ROM dump. ;)

    But he does not really need the emunand for just playing MK7.

    Ah... and so... Yes it is working, I did it.

    Might as well skip emunand until i encounter a rom which needs it.

    I have MK7 retail, thought I need it because it is a online game and i want to play online. Oh well.

    As long as you do not any update, everything will be fine.
