    This topic is for anyone interested in getting shyguy as a playable character within Mario Kart DS.

    Currently I'm trying to replace mario with shyguy. I have so far gotten him to appear when the CPU selects mario, played by the CPU. When attempting to select mario as your own character, yoshi appears, not shyguy.

    If anyone is interested let me know.

    Think you could make it so it replaces someone dumb instead of Mario? Someone like Waluigi or Daisy?

    Its possible. I'd like to get it working with mario first and then i could change it to waluigi or daisy.

    Does anyone here know anything about the setup of the ROM?

    I like Shiguy.. don't understand why he's playable only at Download Play. Bad decision from Nintendo.

    It's very easy, even possbile too play online in a way that others also will see shy-guy. The online way only works in an Action Replay code however, so if you don't own a cheat system I recommend nitro hax.
    Don't have the codes at hand now, so if you want them, PM me [​IMG]

    With the R4 a cheat is that you can hold select when loading a trach to be shy guy. It works. Sorry, they beat you to it.
    EDIT:Not that I would know firsthand. I dont own a flashcart.

    As mentioned before, my trainer allows the use of Shy Guy. So basically you are trying to reinvent the wheel.

    Lol, Not to mention hacking the ROM requires advanced knowledge in hex editing.

    lol sorry hope i didnt sound harsh.

    Actually tho, i just checked out the trainer and it uses button combos to get shyguy. Im lookin to have shyguy replace another character without having to press buttons. Ill PM cracker to see if they have any ideas.
