FAQ
Q. Are there any CTGP-7 communities?
A. Since CTWW (Custom Tracks Worldwide) was added to the modpack, the usage of communities was no longer required. However here are the CTGP-7 community codes in case you need them:
Custom Tracks: 29-1800-5228-2361
Custom Tracks, 200cc: 52-3127-4613-8641
Normal Tracks: 02-5770-2485-4638
Normal Tracks, 200cc: 54-0178-4815-8814
Q. Why does the game crash at some points?
A. This mod is not perfect, if the game crashes, please report it here, or if you don't have a github account, send me a PM.

Q. Will this mod overwrite my MK7 game?
A. Nope, the patches are temporal and will be gone after a reboot. The save data is also redirected to the SD so you don't have to worry about your ghosts being overwritten.

Q. After installing CTGP-7 for the first time, an error screen asks to press the power button and try again.
A. Make sure you have launched Mario Kart 7 at least once.

I've been making a manager app so you can enable and disable cts. If everything goes fine, tomorrow there will be a video.

Oh cool to hear. And I've actually already figured it out anyhow ha-ha. Didn't get any replies anywhere so I just did it the good old fashioned trial and error way.

This will be ported to hans as soon as I understand how it works. ;)
It just load a modified RomFS which is placed on the "hans" in the root of your sd card.The name of the modified RomFS has to be: 00030700.bin (for Europe games)

--------------------- MERGED ---------------------------

I can't get it to work though :X maybe because im using US RomFS..
