MKW Hack Pack is Huili's second distribution, and by far his most ambitious distribution ever. It is the first major distribution to ever include both custom tracks and texture hack tracks in them. This distribution will have 2 installments to it: a distribution with 216 custom tracks and 192 texture hack tracks, with the expansion of main.dol. Both of these distributions will be the first to ever have custom tracks only and the first distribution to have more than 32 original tracks textured. The option to choose whether you want one or the other or both will be available on the google drive link.
Another thing about the MKW Hack Pack is that there are a lot of edited files, Huili wants to be able to change almost every aspect of the game by replacing original files with modified files. This includes custom characters, items, backmodels, earths, globes, miibody, race, boot up screens, title screens, selection screens, music, brsar sound effects, thps, minimaps, speedometers, countdown mode, brlan, tpl, menusingle other and multi files, driver, allkart, etc. Anything that can be changed, Huili is looking for edited files. All these changes will be available on the full version download of the MKW Hack Pack. A smaller version, with only the tracks and necessary files, will also be available. Huili is also thinking about releasing a Master Collection of 80+ music packs for this distribution for the hardcore modder who can afford to put more than the usual amount of content on his SD Card.
There will be 3 versions, the full version, which, once extracted, is going to be around 4-5GB and will have 3 music packs and a lot of content added with it for a full experience of mkw modding at its finest. The regular download will be around 660-800mb once extracted. There is also hopefully coming soon an ISO Patcher version, which will essentially have the basics that come with the regular download, with maybe a few extras.
MKW HACK PACK V2 RELEASE DAY
This track listing is not the final product, so it is going to be subject to change. A list of new tracks that are ready to be included but are not yet included, and tracks that need to be fixed in order to be included can be found on the track wishlist.
This distribution makes use of custom menus to load custom course slots. The cup selection menu is modified with two buttons featuring arrows to the left and right of the main cups. When selected, these buttons cause the current on-screen cup buttons to be replaced with other cups, including custom cups, creating a scrolling menu system. All custom tracks are stored inside custom cups.
This distribution is capable of searching for random players to play custom tracks with. When running the pack, simply press the Regional/Continental button (which is renamed to Custom Tracks Worldwide) to search for custom track players. You can also join your friends who are playing CTWW, and they can join you. This feature is currently experimental, but seems to be working correctly. Credits to XeR for finding the required values to do this.
When in CTWW mode, picking random will allow the game to select a custom track based on a number provided by the game's RNG system. It can also be triggered by pressing + or Start (depending on your controller), and may be used offline to randomly select a track to play on.
The countdown timer on the Wi-Fi voting screen is always shown now, rather than just when you're about to run out of time. This can give you a better idea of how long you have to make a decision when voting. The time allocated is 30 seconds.
This distribution makes a modification to the race time limit on Wi-Fi. It has been expanded from 5 minutes to 5:40, allowing longer tracks to be entered and played through to completion. The game has another hard limit of 5:56 before it disconnects everyone, so it is impractical to increase the time beyond 5:40, as the time advances even when looking at leaderboards. If 5:40 is reached, the pack forces you past the leaderboards quickly to avoid disconnection.
The game will not save ghosts at all in order to try to prevent save data corruption and accidental overwriting of ghosts. Personal leaderboards are also not updated. This feature is only temporary as future releases will support ghost data saving in a much more secure way.
Blue Shells can now be held behind you like Red and Green Shells. They will explode on contact, but not hurt the player. They can be used to protect against other items being shot from behind, but if wheelie-bumped while holding a blue shell behind you it will fall away and disappear. Only one Blue Shell can exist at once, so even when it is held out behind you it will be impossible for anyone else to get one from an item box.
Regular Friend Roster
This distribution, like any other, will have the save file for your regular friend roster, much like that in any other distribution.
Time Trials and Grand Prix
If the idea of playing online does not interest you, Huili has made it possible to have another save to SD card option if you want to have the Best Known Time (BKT) or Wold Record (WR) of any track in this distribution.
This save file should be exclusive to countdown races for this distribution. Offline use is not recommended, as nothing interesting will happen, except you have to race 8 laps"
This option will allow you to have your ctgp save file in case you're not comfortable with the other options Huili has given you.
