    Meet Mario Kart 8's first ever Hack Pack, it's Mario Kart 8 Hack Pack. Boring name, I know.
    Features
    • 2 Completely Custom Tracks, 8 Edited Tracks, 22 Skybox Edited Tracks
    • Custom Skins/Imports for almost every character
    • Custom music for 7 tracks (I'll probably do a cup a day)
    • 6 Custom Karts
    • Fidget Spinner Water Propeller
    • Edited Text to match with the mods
    Screenshots

    Sorry for potato quality, no capture card.
    Planned Updates
    • More custom music
    • Sm4sh Villager (Just waiting for CorBond to let me)
    • Add edited text for other regions.
    How to Install
    1. Copy the SDCafiine and WiiU folders from "MK8HP v1.0.2 by Trainiax.7z" to the root of your SD Card.
    2. In the SDCafiine, replace the "titleid" folder name with the correct title id from your region (see "README.txt")
    3. Insert your SD Card into your Wii U.
    4. Enter Internet Browser and go to Loadiine.ovh
    5. Click on "Homebrew Launcher 1.3 (5.5.0 - 5.5.1)"
    6. Click on Mocha.elf
    7. Go back into Internet Browser and start Homebrew Launcher again.
    8. Select SDCafiine.
    9. Boot up Mario Kart 8
    10. ...
    11. Profit
    Everything should work regardless of region, except for edited text. I only have the American version of the game, and I only speak English, so American English is the only region/language edited text will work on.
    Is this WiFi Safe?
    NO! This is not safe to use in Worldwide and Regionals. This will work with friends if they have this modpack installed. If you don't have friends and want to play with people on MK8HP, I have created a Mario Kart 8 Tournament that you can enter the code and race. No guaranties that anyone will join, however. The code is: 9883-4891-3599

    How are you editing courses? I'd be interested in trying my hand at new original courses if I had the tools

    I'd rather you let me not need to install games (like PS3) or install/download straight from the console.

    If you have the disc, you don't need to.

    I'm clearly not talking about that, as that is common sense.

    So... That's, nice?

    But, since it is still under planifications, why make an announcement? That will make people impatient now.

    But anyway, good luck for this, and hopefully more people will join! :grog:

    I unfortunately have no idea how to edit courses. However, you can search up Ray's Track Editing guide right here which should help :)

    Would it ever be possible to include a course editor?

    Anything is possible. However, it is impossible to do at this moment, and highly unlikely to ever include a course editor in game. If you are talking about out of game, I'd wait for Wexos Toolbox to be released.

    Nah, you got it right: in-game, or at least on the Wii-U. Thanks for the info!

    His project loads custom tracks, it doesn't make them. I don't see how that kills the thread.

    Just because me personally cannot currently make edited tracks, does not mean I cannot compile tracks into a pack.

    Sorry, we don't accept "project announcement" threads without at least a little Proof of Concept (screenshots, videos, etc) that work is being done. Too many fake projects out there, welp.

    Feel free to edit the first post with some stuff and then report it and we'll reopen it.
