    I release 2 packs of modified tracks I made for a friend for livestreams on Halloween and Christmas in 2016.
    • Every track (including DLCs) has been altered by modifying the BYAML files, more or less different from the original courses. Mostly, a lot of obstacles and other random things have been added.
    • Some have additional minor KCL changes.
    • They are _not_ texture modified tracks as those take too long to load, and the stream took place in a private online room.
    • Music (for the halloween pack at least) is provided as a separate download due to the download size. It is purposefully louder than the original songs so it could be heard in the stream which had voice commentary.
    • I did not include the modified course names which were all (horrible) German puns on popular stream watcher's and Twitch followers nickname's.
    Feel free to try them out and give your MK8 one last breath before MK8D comes out (as if it would replace it, lel). Tell me what you think about them.

    Halloween Pack
    All courses have been tinted into some "spooky" atmosphere, mostly taking place at night, with a lot of Boo's flying around here and there.
    Christmas Pack
    This is basically the "Halloween Pack Reloaded", as that one has been taken as the template with further modifications on top of them to tint the tracks back into a cuddly warm Winter atmosphere. Does not mean everything turned into snow. Basically just adds a lot of holiday lights everywhere. Some tracks (especially the ones of the Bell Cup) were completely "redone" and some new obstacle ideas were realized.
    • Watch it here.
    • Download the course mods here.
    • Music is not available at this time.

    It's simple file replacement with a Cafiine Server. Create the title ID folder matching your region in the data directory, start the server, and run the Cafiine exploit on your Wii U.

    It does only replace the DLC Tracks. What do I wrong?

    Btw, it can be installed too. Not sure if it's shareable here (if repacked with another key?)

    You could put these in a Loadiine ready MK8 folder setup, change the titleID, pack it with NUS packer and install it via WUP installer so you have two MK8s of the same (=your) region on your Homescreen.

    @Ray Koopa:
    Does your download include the other changes as well? Character names, speech bubbles for the lobby and so on?

    No, it only contains the tracks. The other changes were German only and the music too loud for normal play.

    Course and character names were mostly insider jokes. Since they share the same file with the speech bubbles, including some other changes, I didn't pick just them out.

    *bump* By request, I now uploaded all the music, for the Halloween Pack at least. You can find the links in the entry post. Put the BFSTM files in the ZIP file into content/audio/stream.
    As said, the music is much louder than the original MK8 songs. This was done on purpose so it can be clearly heard in the stream I made it for, which had me and a friend speaking to it. I also partly used it in my most recent MK8 videos on my YT channel. The Baby park song is a retarded inside joke, so listen to it on your own fault :P
