Hey, I'm Squadaloo. I technically started making custom tracks in 2010 under my original username of MrX8991 although my only release from that time period was GBA Mario Circuit (Squadaloo). However, I ran into numerous issues with the tools available back then and ended up not making much. Fast forward to 2021 and I decided to give it another shot now that the tools have improved. I'm mostly out to make tracks that more match Nintendo's design philosophy (2-3 minutes long, nothing too crazy).
In addition to custom tracks, I've been experimenting a lot with Dolphin VR and have been doing most of my recent playing in virtual reality using an Oculus Rift. As such, I haven't really checked out nor do I really use CTGP beyond using it to test my own tracks and I don't play online. Despite making Mario Kart Wii tracks, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe is easily my favorite in the series. I have a tendency to get really into a community for a few months then drop out entirely for a long time so don't be surprised if I suddenly go quiet.
Updating My Custom Content
Please do not update any of my content here without my permission UNLESS the update ONLY consists of a fix to a crash. In such a case, please include my original readme in your updated version (you don't have to edit it, I'll do it on the next release).
You can ask on the talk pages of those tracks or my user.
AI Upscaled Texture Pack for Dolphin
I also made a Mario Kart Wii texture pack for use with Dolphin using AI upscaled textures. I haven't created a page on this wiki for it given it's incompatible with actual Wiis which doesn't really fit with this wiki but you can check it out here.
