    I've been wanting to add some custom music to Mario Kart 7, and I don't know where all music is. I don't want to edit course music, I want to edit menu music.

    It is multi channel, you will need to make a 6 channel brstm, and use a converter to bcstm

    UI/common-(language).szs, open it with Every File Explorer, extract the 8kb file and open it with MSBT editor

    Also by the way, this is going to sound weird, but is there anyway to run CTGP-7 without the Custom Tracks? I want to run everything that CTGP-7 has (including textures, menu's, etc.) but just without the CTs. I already tried deleting the CT's .szs' files from the course folder than rebuilding CTGP-7, but the CTs just came back. Also I tried editing the text than replacing the edited .bin file back into my region's .szs file than saving, but the text reverted back to normal when loaded.

    Whenever I load CTGP-7 Rebuilder with tempdata deleted, it always prompts me to extract a romfs before rebuilding one. When I install with tempdata, it rebuild as usual. How do I get around this??

    Because you have to extract it again.

    The rebuilder keeps requesting a tempdata file.

    NVM, I got it. But now when I load it through CTGP-7's channel, It black screens with some pixels to the left of the screen.
