    When playing Mario Kart via download play, you get to play as a randomly coloured shy guy. Couldn't there be a homebrew to choose those shy guys when playing the retail cratridge ?
    It would be so cool to play as a blue Shy Guy :D

    Why am I alone with my interests :'(

    Would probably not be possible with homebrew but it is possible with spider3DSTools.

    Probably yes, I have no experience with spider so I can't make it myself.

    Could be done as a path edit in the ram with Spider (To redirect the game to use the colored model). Unfortunately, the colors are controlled in a specific way that is only checked in Download Play. You cannot bring them online. :(

    Oh. So it isn't stored like any model, so you can't simply exchange a coloured Shy Guy with the original ?

    They each have their own individual model. However, any changes would only be cosmetic.

    could you even suspend a download play game to run spider without some connection lost error?

    I meant everything for the cartridge version.
