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 Ismy, Seeky, _tZ The milliseconds are now used as the current lap, and the UI has been modified to reflect this change.
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.
Disable Time Limit Ro The five minute time limit and the 5:56 disconnection have been removed to accommodate for the longer races.
Don't Hide Position After Race MrBean35000vr Prevents the game from hiding the player's position once the race is over.
Equal Item Probability Vega Makes all item probabilities exactly equal, thus making items random.
Final Lap Music Trigger Modifier CLF78 Final lap music triggers on lap 45 instead of lap 50.
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.
Instant Item Boxes Anarion Item boxes now respawn instantly to allow everyone to get items.
Inside Drifting Bikes Seeky All bikes are inside-drift.
Newbie Helper Seeky, Star 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 Invincibility Frames CLF78, Ismy This code removes the brief period of invincibility after being hit by an item, allowing others to hit you again. This also causes bumps from Stars and Bullet Bills to be much more powerful.
Points Table Modifier CLF78 Every score in friend rooms and VS mode is multiplied by the amount of players.
Random Woodbox/Bush Items Seeky Randomizes leaf pile and wooden box item chances. The Lightning, POW Block and Thunder Cloud cannot be pulled.
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.
Speed Modifier MrBean35000vr Tracks 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, JoshuaMK The race is started 44 laps back, then all tracks are set to six laps (for a total of 50 laps) to make Lakitu appear in the last five laps.
Ultra UnCut MrBean35000vr, Chadderz Ultra UnCut fixes the Start Line Bug that causes many Ultra Shortcuts.
Item Edits
Feature Author Information
All Items Can Land MrBean35000vr 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. The code has been modified to remove the Blooper.
Banana Spinout Modifier CLF78, Ismy 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 Speed Modifier davidevgen Bullet Bills now move at 220 km/h, making them the most valuable item in order to catch up to other players.
Draggable Blue Shells Luis Blue Shells can now 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 now 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).
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 Ismy The player's size when in a Mega Mushroom is 1.5x the original.
Mega Thunder Cloud _tZ The Thunder Cloud gives a Mega Mushroom effect, instead of shocking the player.
Motion Sensor Bomb Hamster35000vr Bob-ombs only explode when someone gets close to them.
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.
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.
Wooden Box Respawn Modifier Atlas Wooden boxes respawn faster and closer to the ground.
