Game Features
Feature Author Information
30 Seconds Time Limit Modifier CLF78 The 30 second rule has been changed to three minutes, to allow players to finish the race.
Anti-Freeze MrBean35000vr, TheLordScruffy, Seeky, Star, _tZ A series of codes which patch commonly known crash causes.
Change Character Between Wi-Fi Races MrBean35000vr When in online play, the player's character, vehicle, and drift mode choice may be changed between races by pressing + on the Wii Remote (or Start on the GCN Controller) when on the VR screen. This simply takes the player back to the character select menu and then returns them to the vote when they have reselected. If the time limit expires, the currently selected options are taken.
Custom Lap Counter TheLordScruffy, Ismy The lap counter shows the correct current lap and total laps.
Custom Server Support Wiimm, Leseratte Support to play on Wiimmfi has been added as a replacement to Nintendo WFC. This comes with a custom region so that regional/continental races work.
Don't Hide Position After Race MrBean35000vr Prevents the game from hiding the player's position once the race is over.
Final Lap Music Trigger Modifier CLF78 Final lap music triggers on lap 45. For the final lap, the jingle plays again and then the music is slightly faster.
Force 150cc Online XeR Forces 150cc in online races.
Friend Room Race Count Modifier MrBean35000vr Changes the amount of VS races in friend rooms to two.
Increase Visual Distance davidevgen Increases the draw distance of objects to allow players to spot items earlier.
Inside Drifting Bikes Seeky All bikes are inside-drift.
No Invincibility Frames CLF78, Ismy, Skullface This code removes the brief period of invincibility after being hit by an item, allowing others to hit you again.
Points Table Modifier CLF78 Every score in friend rooms and VS mode is multiplied by the amount of players.
Speed Modifier MrBean35000vr Tracks can have a speed modifier applied (e.g. 2× speed), which causes all parts of the game's physics to move at the increased speed (including vehicles, items and boosts).
Starting Lap Modifier BullyWiiPlaza, CLF78, Ismy, Melg The race lasts 50 laps on every track, with Lakitu showing and the jingle playing every lap.
Team Disabler Geeh, Nameless, TheLordScruffy Team colors are disabled and players from the same team can hit each other, save for a few occasions:
  • Players from the same team cannot pass a Thunder Cloud to each other.
  • POW Blocks only affect the opposite team, while Lightning affect everyone.
Track Patches CLF78, Ismy A small set of files and codes that change some inconsistencies on Nintendo tracks, whilst maintaining My Stuff support:
  • Toad's Factory: Crates always give items, conveyors keep switching after three laps.
  • Coconut Mall: Escalators keep switching after three laps, Bullet Bills take the bottom path by default at the end of the mall.
  • DK Summit: Bullet Bills go through the thick snow at the end.
  • Maple Treeway: All bushes have the same chance of spitting items.
  • Grumble Volcano: Rocks and geysers are adjusted to track pace. Ultra Shortcut and Rock Hop rocks sink instantly to prevent bugs/excessive cutting.
  • Dry Dry Ruins: Pillars and sand piles delays are adjusted to track pace.
  • DS Yoshi Falls: Bullet Bills take the waterfall route by default.
  • SNES Ghost Valley 2: Block delays are adjusted to track pace.
Time Limit Modifier CLF78 The five minute time limit has been extended to 60 minutes to accommodate for the longer races.
Ultra UnCut MrBean35000vr, Chadderz Ultra UnCut fixes the Start Line Bug that causes many Ultra Shortcuts.
Wooden Box Respawn Modifier Atlas Wooden boxes respawn faster and closer to the ground.
Item Edits
Feature Author Information
All Items Can Land MrBean35000vr, CLF78 Every item can land on the floor when dropped and be activated when a racer drives over it. Item effects are identical to if the user actually fired the item themselves.
Banana Damage Modifier Skullface Bananas make the player spin for a longer amount of time, slowing them to almost a halt.
Blue Shell Speed Modifier mdmwii Blue Shells' traveling speed has been increased to 4×. However, they can still be dodged with Mushrooms.
Bullet Bill Cannon Speed Modifier CLF78, Ismy Players in a Bullet Bill move faster than normal players in cannons.
Bullet Bill Speed Modifier davidevgen Bullet Bills move at 220 km/h, making them the most valuable item in order to catch up to other players.
Disable Item Poof CLF78 Prevents items from being removed by the game for being on the track too long. Items will still disappear after a while due to Item Limits being reached.
Draggable Blue Shells Luis Blue Shells can be held behind you like Red 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 the player gets wheelie-bumped while holding a Blue Shell behind, it will fall and stay on the ground due to the effect of All Items Can Land.
Fast POW mdmwii The POW Block hits at the second strike instead of the third one to catch players by surprise.
Green Shell Speed Modifier davidevgen Green Shells move at 2× speed.
Ground Golden Mushroom Mod CLF78 Picking a Golden Mushroom on the ground with an item in your inventory will duplicate that item (for example, if your item is a Bullet Bill, it will let you hold two Bullet Bills instead of one), for a maximum of three items. Additionally, for items such as Shells or Bananas, having more than one item will cause them to behave like Triple items.
Instant Item Boxes Anarion Item boxes respawn instantly to allow everyone to get items.
Max Item Limit Modifier davidevgen, Luis Increases the amount of items that can be in play to make for more chaotic racing.
Mega Flips Everything JoshuaMK Trucks and Chain Chomps will flip over if hit with a Mega Mushroom (instead of stopping the player).
Mega Mushroom Size Modifier CLF78 The player's size when in a Mega Mushroom is 1.5× the original.
Mega Thunder Cloud _tZ The Thunder Cloud gives a Mega Mushroom effect, instead of shrinking the player.
Motion Sensor Bombs Hamster35000vr Bob-ombs only explode when someone gets close to them.
Newbie Helper Seeky, CLF78 If a player is lapped by the race leader, they will no longer pull Bananas, Shells or Fake Item Boxes (or their triple counterparts).
No Bullet Bill Icon Anarion Once you use a Bullet Bill, its icon in the roulette goes away, allowing you to pick up another item while in it.
Object Item Randomizer CLF78, Ismy Randomizes items coming out of objects, such as leaf piles, wooden boxes and Goombas. The Lightning, POW Block and Thunder Cloud cannot be pulled.
Prevent Lightning/POW Block From Dropping CLF78 Lightning and POW Blocks will not drop if the player loses them.
Remove Mushroom Bug Vega The Mushroom bug is a "feature" implemented in the game to give you a Mushroom for your 16th, 18th, and 20th+ item, regardless of your position. This code removes it.
Remove Mushroom When No Item Available CLF78, Ismy The game no longer replaces an item with a Mushroom if said item's limit has been reached (except for the POW and Lightning, which give Triple Mushrooms instead).
Replace Blooper with Triple FIBs CLF78, Seeky; other codes by Vega and Luis The Blooper is fully replaced by Triple Fake Item Boxes.
Shells Never Break Hamster35000vr Green and Red Shells do not break after multiple bounces.
Ultimate Item Randomizer CLF78, Ismy Completely randomizes item chances, save for a few select cases:
  • Blue Shell/Lightning/POW Block timers.
  • Players in 1st cannot get a POW Block.
  • Newbie Helper.
