Custom Track Distribution
A Custom Track Distribution is a collection of Custom Tracks, typically replacing the original 32 Mario Kart Wii courses with different, user-created tracks. Custom Track Distributions may also change other aspects of the game, such as menu colors, icons, in-game text, and fonts. Some distributions only include Texture Hacks or Custom Characters, or may add them in addition to Custom Tracks.
It is important that all users playing Custom Tracks together use the same distribution so that they all have the same set of tracks. Unless you are using a Custom Track Distribution with its own Online Region for Custom Tracks Worldwide (see Used Online Regions below) you should not play Worldwides online because you will be playing against players using normal Mario Kart Wii tracks. You should only play against other players using friend codes who are using the same distribution.
If you just want to play some of the newest tracks with some friends, it is not necessary to create a new distribution. Instead, you can use the My Stuff Folder feature to add tracks that will replace the default Mario Kart Wii Tracks. As long as you and your friends replace the same tracks (for example, all of you replace GCN Mario Circuit with the same track) you can play the new tracks online using friend codes.

Used Game IDs
Some track collections are distributed as ISO Patcher. This will enable the users to have standalone ISOs and will support USB Loaders. USB Loaders select games by the ID6. Therefore it is wise for all ISO distributions use a different ID6. To play online, the ID4 (first 4 characters of the ID6) must be RMCP (PAL), RMCE (USA), RMCJ (Japan) or RMCK (Korea). The other 2 characters can be used to distinguish between the ISOs. Usually digits (0-9) and capitals (A-Z) are used. So there are 36*36=1296 possible IDs, more than enough.
The following table shows all used IDs to avoid conflicts.

To support alternate savegames the ID4 of TICKET, TMD and BOOT.BIN (but not the ID of the disc header) must be changed. Wiimms distributions (and therefore its ISO Patcher change the first letter R to the non used letter K (like Klone).
It is possible to give each custom track distribution an unique region ID. If playing continental/regional only players with the same region id are matched.
