Lap Texture Fix is a mod created by Wingcapman. This mod fixes the lap counters so that the ninth lap will show correctly, as well as a fix for the lap textures shown on the Time Trial results screen to show all laps (including the ones beyond lap three). Originally, Mario Kart Wii only goes up to eight laps, and textures for laps four to nine do not exist, which this mod fixes. Wiimm implemented this mod into Wiimms SZS Tools through option --9laps.


  • CLF78, for helping out to make the mod compatible for Korean users.


There are two different downloads: one where all fixes are pre-installed for the Race-related SZS files, and one for standalone files. The pre-installed files are pretty much plug-'n-play; the user puts the files inside the My Stuff folder or simply replace the files in their ISO. This is perfectly fine for users who are not using any sorts of texture hacks or any other Race-related modifications. The standalone files require the user to recompile their own Race-related SZS files (as CTools can cause issues with those files, so it is recommended to extract all files with Wiimms SZS Tools instead). Use command wszst EXTRACT "Race*.szs" to extract all Race files. Once all the files are replaced correctly, then use command wszst CREATE "Race*.d" -o to create the new SZS files.

As of Wiimms SZS Tools v2.36a, a --9laps patch option is supported. The command wszst PATCH --9laps "Race*.szs" can be used to patch all Race files in one step. It can be combined with other options to patch other things within the same step. For example: wszst PATCH --le-menu --9laps --cup-icons image.tpl "./Scene/UI/*.szs".


This mod is created to make it for an unmodified copy of Mario Kart Wii and distributions that do not have a modified lap counter. Korean support has been added since v1.03.
