    Do we have the appropriate tools to modify Mario Kart 7 into a jerry rigged F-Zero 3ds? I'm wanting to start some kind of project along those lines, but I can't think of any game to do it with. If we had some kind of custom 3d game engine support, I suppose that would work better.

    Probably doable with NTR if you can RE the game engine. Model swaps would be the easy part.

    It really depends on what you want to do. Model and texture hacks are fairly easy. Same for custom tracks. Editing the cc (50cc, 100cc, etc.) would most likely require editing the code.bin though.

    That's what I was thinking, just swap out all the models with F-Zero ones, and then crank up the CC and do some custom tracks. The only issues I was running into in my head was working out the boost power and health meter and general drifting and mechanica as seen in typical F-Zero titles.

    There's an NTR cheat for that, just saying

    Then all that remains would be modifying the driving mechanics and finding a way to set up a boost/HP meter.

    Can't NTR plugins run ARM11 code? If they can, then a boost/HP meter seems doable

    Edit the Common.szs file to make the speed faster. Edit /UI/ to change text and menus. And other models should be fairly easy.

    Unfortunately my skills are limited to designing, modeling, texturing, and animating. Perhaps if I threw together a small "proof of concept" with a custom track and some F-Zero machines, I could gain some interest from some people who are a bit more skilled than I? That being said, I'm offering my skills as a modeler and texture artist if anyone wants to team up with me on this.

    EDIT: I also do a pretty "metal" announcer voice if this ever gets as far as needing a "3...2...1...", "YEAH THE FINAL LAP", or ,"YOU GOT BOOST POWER".

    How well can you import custom models for the game? You can import custom stages, but is it more complicated for characters/karts?

    They would be required, yes haha.

    @gallade, sorry I'm not interested. I'd like to put time into this project and see if I can get it to go somewhere :).
