Overview

MKW Hack Pack is a Custom Track Distribution made by Huili. All 244 tracks in this Custom Track Distribution are custom tracks.

The custom track selections on MKW Hack Pack serve 2 purposes: 1. Huili wants to represent the underdog. In other words, any forgotten, overlooked and potentially some new tracks have a better chance of getting in this distribution, and 2. To appeal to the mainstream audience by putting in familiar custom tracks, with some minor edits to them, and adding some of Huili's favorite tracks.

Another thing about the MKW Hack Pack is that there are a lot of edited files, Huili wants to be able to change as many files as possible by replacing original files with modified files. All this is available by going to the other downloads on google drive.

Game Features

Game Features
Feature Author Information
Custom Menu System Chadderz 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.
Custom Tracks Worldwide XeR 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 MKW Hack Pack) 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.
Random Track Selection Chadderz 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.
Wi-Fi Timer Chadderz 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.
Wi-Fi Time Limit Expansion Chadderz 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.
Ghost Blocking mdmwii 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.
Draggable Blue Shells MrBean35000vr 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.
Speedometer Chadderz Located in the lower right hand corner of the screen. This only works in single player modes. Units is KM/H (kilometers per hour). In the misc. packs for this distribution, there's multiple speedometer color choices, including one from Mario Kart Double Dash.
Max Lap Count Modifier Geeh and MrEvil A track can have between 1 and 8 laps.
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).
Wiimmfi Wiimm and Leseratte Support to play on a custom MKW server has been added as a replacement to Nintendo WFC.

For more details see Wiimmfi Project.

Minimap Colors Wine, AC, and Pepo 2000 Minimaps can now have colors. This affects every track in the pack.
Countdown Mode MrBean35000vr Countdown Mode has been added as a replacement for battles in single player online play. However, on MKW Hack Pack, Countdown uses it's own region instead of replacing the battle region.
Change Characters 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.
All Cups in Regionals  ????, aplumafreak500 All cups, including the first 8 cups that would otherwise be reserved for regular tracks, can now be played on in regionals. Credits to aplumafreak500 for executing the code.
Rotating Bananas  ???? Triple bananas, not single bananas, circle around you instead of standing still behind you.
Fix the mushroom-only-bug online Leseratte There is a weird "bug" in the game causing everyone to only get mushrooms after the 18th item online. The quotations for "bug" are there because it's a feature that Nintendo put into the game. Leseratte developed this code feature so that the item limit for mushrooms would be removed, even if you get more than 40 item boxes online.
Translation Huili In an effort to reduce the filesize of the main MKW Hack Pack distribution, Huili has discontinued translation on the main distribution indefinitely. However, if you want to make your own for future versions of Hack Pack, please let Huili know and he will add them to an extra, optional, pack.
Worldwides Disabled Wiimm In this Custom Track Distribution you can't meet up with anyone on worldwides, no matter how long you wait on it. On wiimmfi, this pack uses vx instead of vs. VS would indicate that you can join worldwides, whereas VX means you can't.
