The special value is defined in a table at 808c9a58 (PAL). Its meaning is unknown. Maybe something like special slot effects in VS?

There are 5 other slots reserved for Galaxy Colosseum and the winning/losing scenes.

Special Slots

Most tracks run on all slots, with exceptions of slots 4.2, 6.1 and 6.2; additionally, some tracks only run at slots 3.1, 5.3 and 7.1. Here are the rules for these special slots:

  • Tracks can only run on slot 4.2 if they have at least one instance of kart_truck and car_body, and have materials with specific names in the course_model.brres. (More...)
  • Tracks can only run on slot 6.1 if ice.brres is present; furthermore this object is necessary to activate the icy water fall boundary flag, which only works at this slot.
  • Tracks can only run on slot 6.2 if HeyhoShipGBA is used; also objects HeyhoShipGBA and HeyhoBallGBA only work on this slot.
  • Tracks using objects sunDS, FireSnake or pylon01 only work on slots 3.1 and 7.1.
  • The object poihana sometimes doesn't work on slot 5.1; curiously, the object is used on this slot by Nintendo.
  • Tracks using objects obakeblockSFC, obakeblock2SFC and obakeblock3SFC only work on slot 5.3 if these objects are intended with fall animation, but here they are not scalable; on all other slots these objects can be scaled but they are unsolid and without animation. Wiimms SZS Tools use them to make item and enemy routes visible during gameplay or to mark positions.
  • All other slots are different for KCL Sound Triggers, particular sounds or GFX for KCL flags or what effects they give to tracks.

Slot Expansion

It is possible to expand the track selection list to include more slots. It should be noted that new slots have no unique slot features, but can use special slot effects and music slots.
