Game Features

Game Features
Feature Author Information
1st Person mdmwii Game mode that puts the camera right at the vehicle instead of zooming out.
200 km/h Volderbeek Makes all tracks speed default to 200 km/h.
Cannon Speed Modifier Ro Lowers the speed of all cannons to ensure that players on 200 kmh don't endlessly fall through them.
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.
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 its own region instead of replacing the battle region, and it also works offline.
Crazy 6 Star Also known as chaotic items, or random item from item box, this code/game mode gives you any item in any position. This code is used in conjunction with Countdown exclusively.
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 HPWW, and they can join you.
Disable Battle Button JoshuaMK Used on Crazy 6 Countdown, this code does not remove the battle button, but you can't select battle either.
Double Framerate MrBean35000vr Made by tricking the game into thinking it's meant to run at 120fps while outputting 60. The game and almost all elements within it move twice as fast as normal!
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.
Drift Threshold Modifier Superstarrio Also known as Can Always Drift. No matter how slow you go, you can drift. Used in 200 kmh.
Exception Handler Star, Riidefi This code will display exception information on the television screen when an exception occurs. After the console is finished scrolling, you will be returned to the Wii System Menu.
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.
Green Shell Speed Modifier Davidevgen Used on Crazy 6 Countdown and 200 kmh game modes, this code makes the green shell go up to speeds of 340 kmh
Invisible Racing Hamster, JoshuaMK Characters, vehicles, items, boxes, enemies, and other things are invisible.
Item Rain MrBean35000vr, Chadderz Item Rain is a custom game mode created by MrBean35000vr and Chadderz. In this mode items fall randomly from the sky to disrupt the players during a race or battle.
Kill Lakitu JoshuaMK Lakitu is now invisible. Used in Invisible Racing game mode
Load File From SD Card Bushing, Segher Used for time trial support, this code loads the contents of a file located on the SD card into RAM.
Max Lap Count Modifier Geeh and MrEvil A track can have between 1 and 8 laps.
Mega Mushroom Flips Trucks JoshuaMK Instead of being bonked by a truck, this code flips trucks over just like a star or bullet bill would.
Minimap Colors Wine, AC, and Pepo 2000 Minimaps can now have colors. This affects every track in the pack.
Mission Mode MrBean35000vr Mission Mode is an unused, incomplete game mode present in Mario Kart Wii. It seems to have been intended to function very similarly to Mario Kart DS's Mission Mode, but was ultimately cancelled before completion and hidden away. It is likely that Competition/Tournament Mode, which shares many similarities with Mission Mode, became its replacement. The leftover code and screens of Mission Mode were discovered by MrBean35000vr on August 3rd, 2017, over 9 years after Mario Kart Wii's release date.
Nerf Weight Online JoshuaMK Everyone shares the same weight class online to prevent overpowered bumping.
Never Burn Out JoshuaMK Whenever you start your engines too soon, this code will make it so that you start normally as if you didn't use your start up boost at all.
No Bullet Bill Icon Anarion When you use a bullet bill, the icon disappears, so you can get an item while you're in a bullet bill. Also included in this nerf is the disabling of wheelie bumping, which is reduced to more of a tap.
No HUD Bully Short for Heads Up Display. This code disables everything on screen: Minimap, lap, time, item roulette, etc.
No Thundercloud Vega You will never get a thundercloud from an item box.
Race Count Modifier JoshuaMK Extends the amount of tracks per grand prix. Values include 4, 8, 16. 32. 64, and so on.
Rotating Bananas ???? Triple bananas, not single bananas, circle around you instead of standing still behind you.
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).
Speedometer Vega Located in the lower right left corner of the screen. This only works in single player modes. Units is KM/H (kilometers per hour).
Turning Sharpness Modifier JoshuaMK This is the first code that edits the handling AND drifting of ALL vehicles. This code also gets rid of the ballerina issue of other float modifiers, meaning you can turn infinitely sharp without becoming a spinning top.
Unbeancorner JoshuaMK Not to be confused with the program, this code patches automatically any tracks that have Bean Corners on them.
Ultra UnCut MrBean35000vr, Chadderz Ultra UnCut is a Cheat Code from MrBean35000vr and Chadderz which fixes the start line bug that causes many Ultra Shortcuts.
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.
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.
Wiimmfi Wiimm, Leseratte Support to play on a custom MKW server has been added as a replacement to Nintendo WFC.

For more details see Wiimmfi Project.

Worldwide Button Disabled Chadderz When you log onto Wiimmfi, you will not see the Worldwide button at all.
