Mario Kart Wii - Service Pack (MKW-SP)

Authors: stebler et al.

Mario Kart Wii - Service Pack is an experimental, open-source, cross-platform mod for MKW aiming to provide a variety of features and improvements over the base game.

Current features:
- A new save system allowing for more than 4 licenses, ghosts saved on the SD card (or equivalent) as separate files with additional metadata (and read-only support for the CTGP format), custom settings and no region lock.
- A way to replay or race against up to 11 ghosts at once, with (in replays) the ability to switch between ghosts like in live view, tags for every ghost (can be configured to display the name, finish time or creation date) and a tailored selection UI.
- A native-looking speedometer, an option to show Mii heads on the minimap and various UI and UX improvements.
- Many others such as 200cc, My Stuff including differential patching or ghost solidity options.

Planned features:
- (0.2) Track packs with in-game selection and updates and an improved UI with cups replaced with a simple sortable list and track previews.
- (0.2) Several existing and unique features for custom tracks.
- (0.2) An in-game updater for MKW-SP itself.
- (0.3) Online support with a a custom client-server protocol, allowing for cheat-prevention, race recordings, lag-free spectator mode and reconnecting in the middle of a race.
- (0.3) A revamped team mode with friendly fire, up to 6 teams and some kind of in-game communication for random matchmaking.

This is super cool! Great job, it looks amazing.

I think a neat little feature would be to show the position of the ghost that you are viewing and maybe the option the toggle the animation for a position change as there may be a lot.

Once again, amazing work stebler.

Is 38 the limit for the number of ghosts that can be shown on the ghost selection screen? I have more in my folder but they aren't showing up. I checked to see if this was mentioned on the website but I couldn't find anything.

Yes, this is a limit of the vanilla game because you can have one ghost for each of your 30 friends, 4 local ghosts, 2 staff ghosts and I think ghost race and one other. An extension of this limit is planned.

I have always had an idea of a 'live session replay' where you can save all attempts in a TT session and be able to play them back later. For example, you start a time trial but you fail so you reset it would be cool if that partial ghost could be saved in the background and for all the files to be strung together to reproduce a time trial session.

Would something like this be possible with partial ghost files instead of something like input capture?


It would also be good for proof, and perhaps even rerecording a good session in higher quality with extra features like a speedometer and multighost for the partial attempts. And you could upload the ghosts in real time

An attempt counter for each track would be a good idea, as well as some automatically collected stats such as best lap 1 (1 shroom only) best flap etc. It could be used for consistency as well such as how many attempts make it to lap 1, what is the average finished lap 1 amount to etc.
