Mario Kart DS romhack CTGP Nitro v1.0 released, adds 88 tracks and more

Mario Kart DS is more than 16 years old--the game itself is old enough to drive, now. In the years since the game's release, fans have eagerly been learning and following the storied scene of Mario Kart romhacks. It led to the release of projects that you might have seen on the forum before, such as @PabloMK7's CTGP-7 and @szymbar15's Mario Kart Zero. Now, a team of dozens of dedicated programmers, designers, and debuggers have banded together to release a brand new Mario Kart project.

CTGP Nitro is a Mario Kart DS romhack that adds a massive amount of new courses, 88 total, 56 custom, ranging from adaptations of Wii and Wii U-era Mario Kart stages, to unique tracks like Goomba Lake, Toad Oasis, and more. There's also alternate character skins for existing characters, letting you play as King Koopa, 16-bit Mario, and the original Donkey Kong. You can play the romhack on your own, or experience it with friends through online play with Wimmfi. A trailer showcasing the project is available to watch, if you're curious, but if you're already sold on the idea, then you can grab the v1.0.0 release in Delta patch form over at the official website for the CTGP Nitro project.

The long-anticipated full release of CTGP Nitro is finally out!​

Featuring:
  • Speedometer and a Prolonged Rocket Boost indicator for all your Speedrunning needs!
  • 62 courses available to play online!
  • New alt-skin system to select from even more playable characters!
  • 32 brand new Custom Tracks, bringing the total up to 88 courses to race on!
  • Full localisation support!

Tried it out on my dslite with a dstt and it runs pretty well, I did experience some slow down on busier tracks like mkwii's Luigi's Circuit. That was fairly rare and not game breaking though, so I'm looking forward to checking out the rest of the tracks!

been following the MKDS Modding discord for years and they still dont ping anybody for these huge announcements

it's awesome to see this hack be so polished in every single track, but it's a shame that the online play is so limited. If ad-hoc multiplayer emulation ever gets figured out in the future this would be SO SICK to play full 8-player matches. Even with the original game i've only ever managed to play 6-player over ad-hoc since there's never 8 friends with DSes all in one place at the same time.
