    This is as awesome as the Mario Kart Wii mods.
    Man I wish so much that there was something like this for MK8D on the Switch.
    It's still the best kart racer on the Switch but everyone can drive the tracks even with a brain in standby mode.

    I wonder if Nintendo can detect usage of the unused region... :unsure:
    Only one way to find out!

    For me the update server is dead since 1.0 was added to it, I guess it's just flooded with connections at the moment, files are just refusing to download

    That is low priority right now, we have to focus on bug fixing.

    Aye, and let's not forget on an online mode that doesn't depend on Nintendo since is going down for everything next year, Pokemon GTS just goes down first.

    3ds game sales went terrible this year and Pokemon is the only thing still making money for the 3DS. With the GTS being down Nintendo won't have any reason to keep the Wii U and 3DS online services alive for much longer, since Wii U game sales are even worse.

    Not to mention it will free money and resources to give mone online benefits to the Switch and Switch Lite. The only online thing left for the 3DS will be transfer some of your 3DS Pokemon to the Switch Pokemon games and that will be using the paid Pokemon bank service.

    Of course is only rumors but it makes logical sense. I wish to be wrong but with Nintendo move to monetize things it does not make sence to keep a free service for two almost dead videogame consoles going.

    Heck I don't play Mario Kart 8 because the online service for Mario Kart 7 is free.

    Makes absolutely no logical sense. They are still selling 3DS systems and the online framework is the same for the switch and the 3DS (NEX).

    gotta be the biggest news for the 3DS in some time...

    I keep noting no single player vs, but still this mod is much more polished the before- every custom track actually has a proper MAP now finally!


    also anyone who thinks 3DS/Wii U online is going away better keep in check- the current online infrastructure is tied to nintendo unlike Wii/DS gamespy servers- online isn't going away ANYTIME soon- PGL is a pokemon exception that always goes down- GTS and battling will still work

    For me it's working fine, I actually have as main boot.firm the official Luma 3DS and from chainloader the one needed for CTGP-7.
    I use this one (https://github.com/mariohackandglitch/CTGP-7updates/tree/master/luma)

    It's weird how they had to release v1.0.1 like an hour later due to an error, then release v1.0.2 so they could disable the Rosalina menu online

    If i have to be honest I could just trick having the new luma installed, also the rosalina cheat function just crashes your console whenever you enable a cheat in CTGP-7 both offline and online, maybe because the debugger you can use IDA to apply cheats?

    Not even that. As far as I can see, the CTGP-7 N64 Rainbow Road is an original take and frankly, I don't like it.
    But I guess, technically, Rainbow Road DX has portions of all the Rainbow Roads including Wii and 8, so there's that.

    Mario Kart 8 tracks will probably be harder to do because of the anti-gravity sections of the tracks. I guess someone could find a way around it though

    I believe people did something similar in MKWii by putting boost pads on the walls, so that might work. Also, angling the walls to not be as steep or removing/altering the sections completely is also an option.
