*[[Huili]] suggests that you '''DO NOT''' enable all or a lot of [[character]]s. Why? Because if all 12 are selected, for example, your Wii might very well freeze. How can that be? Talking from experience, [[Huili]] knows that some of the file sizes of these [[character]]s in this [[character]] pack are larger than the original files, and that is why it will sometimes not load. So please be mindful of that as you select your [[character]]s for use online and on offline VS matches. Another reason is that the Wii is like a computer, which only has so much memory in it, it can only handle so much.

* It is recommended that any [[character]] file with a size of 250kB should NOT be used online.
*Keep in mind that if you want to enable anything from the '''Complete [[Character]] Sets option,''' they will each have their own set of vehicles. So if another [[character]] is enabled that is '''NOT''' from the complete [[character]] sets, make sure it IS NOT OVER the same vehicle(s), otherwise it will freeze. The best thing to do is to have everything else disabled when that is enabled to avoid confusion. Another suggestion is to look at each folder on your sd card so you know what to select, which will take more time but if you really want to use a certain [[character]] please use caution.

Current Version: v5.0
Date of Latest Version: 2016-10-04
Download: Down temporarily

Overview

This is Huili's first character Distribution which will also be used in the MKW Hack Pack. A few things to keep in mind are the following:

  • Full sets of character hacks come first for all the characters in the Riivolution XML, followed by single characters. Both come alphabetically according to character.
  • If you're going to be using this character pack for time trials, you can enable all character options, because you're only using one character at a time.
  • It is recommended that any character file with a size of 250kB should NOT be used online.
  • After doing some research on clean Mario Kart Wii characters, Huili has found that the biggest single player character is 177kb. the farther you get from that kb, the likeliness that your Wii will blackscreen increases. So please, DO NOT enable a lot of characters.

Future Plans

  • Make 2 separate packs, one for time trials for characters whose filesize are too big for use online and another pack for the rest.
