Hello everyone!
I am making a custom track distribution that will do the following:
  • Bring back every single Mario Kart track up to Mario Kart 7 in the Mario Kart Wii engine
  • Add custom music slots to revo_kart.brsar to bring back the songs that made the tracks special in the first place
  • Use LE-CODE to allow the best of the best retro battle tracks to be relived
  • Include Wiimmfi for online sessions
So, while I do have some spare time and a bit of knowledge, I need a bit of help. So, if you are good at any of the roles below, reply to this thread and I'll give you a link to any necessary files in a PM (and I might also make a Discord server later down the line):
  • Tester (job: Test the pack for bugs and upload a video showcasing the pack if you can do that) (current tester(s): @C0lton, @Goldilocks)
  • BRSTM Creator (job: Use Brawlbox to create BRSTMs and find places to loop the songs. You don't need to name them anything in particular because I will do that when adding custom music slots)
  • LE-CODE Person (job: implement LE-CODE into the pack, change the laps for tracks that need that sort of thing, create the straps, make Riivolution xmls for America, Europe and Japan. I'll give you the tracks and pictures needed for the strap) (current LE-CODE person: me!)
  • ISO Builder (not needed) (job: make an iso builder for the distribution once it's finished. I'll send you the pack for iso building)
I know it sounds like I am asking for a lot (and I probably am), but if you can at all help, I would be very grateful.

I can certainly test, but unfortunately, I can't do anything else since I don't have a working "real" computer.


basically what I'm saying is I'm completely useless.

It’s okay! You can still test once the pack’s ready!

Hi. It’s been a while. I’ll make a quick update on how the project is getting on.
So, at the moment, I will not be having the custom music just yet because I just do not have the time to find all the loop points manually by myself. I would need some help for that.
I’m starting to figure out LE-CODE and how to make a pack based around it, so hopefully that will mean the project beta should be out a little bit quicker.
As for a beta release date, I’d expect it to be ready before the end of the year, but no promises!
I hope more people come along to help out in the project as time goes on. If you can help me with things like editing the music tracks to be loud enough, I would love it if you came to help out, because, if we get more people, that means more work gets done!

Thanks, Lewis.
