Mario Kart: Super Circuit Hacking
Author Posted on 2016/06/30
SGC Yellow Arctus, and I have recently figured out how to use YY-CHR to edit sprites in MKSC, a simple edit can be seen here.

-----Tools you'll need-----

- VisualBoyAdvance Emulator, to extract the palettes for the sprites you want to edit.

- YY-CHR, to Edit the sprites.

-----Steps to follow for the Palette-----
1. Open your rom in VisualBoyAdvance.

2. Go through the in-game menus until you get to the Character Select Screen, and select the character that you would like to edit.

3. After you do that, go to Tools in the menubar of VisualBoyAdvance, and select Palette Viewer.

4. In the window that opens, go to the bottom and click Save OBJ, and choose the name and directory that you want to save to, this will save the palette of each moving object on-screen, including the character that you have selected.

-----Step to follow for editing the sprites-----
1. Open your rom in YY-CHR, and go to the button that says Input &address when you hover over it.

2. Type in 345800 and click OK.

3. You should then be at the first player sprite(Mario facing forward). When you gain your bearings, open the palette that you saved with VisualBoyAdvance and in the Palette selection, scroll all the way to the last row of the palette(this is where the character palette should be).

4. After you do that, go over to the tile selection and scroll down until you find the character you chose to edit.

5. When you get to your character, feel free to do whatever you want to with the character sprite.

Feel free to discuss anything related to MKSC Hacking/Modding, here.

Arctus 64 Well, I decided to upload this set of YY-CHR compatible files to aid people who might have trouble with editing the player sprites, you can find it here.

SGC Yellow I decided to do this, it turned out pretty nice. Now I have to do the rest of Mario's sprites.

Well, looks like I can't read, so I guess I'll be posting my music hack here as well.

Well, I decided to read into how midi program changes work on GBA, and now I can safely say that the MKSC music hack that I made earlier much more closely resembles the N64 Circuit version than it does in my first attempt.

ItemBox Not a hacker myself (just a lurker), but maybe you could try compatibility mode?

BM1467 ill try that

however the original error i got was this

"Run-time error '339':
Component 'vbalCbEx6.ocx' or one of its dependencies not correctly registered: a file is missing or invalid"

User 213 Then you're just missing a file, that's not Windows 10's fault. Try downloading that file off somewhere and putting in system32 or idk.

SGC Yellow I removed the link to your hack, it's too similar to the retail version of the game with just 1 single change,
a simple Luigi recolor won't cut it.

You can re-upload it as an xdelta patch if you want, but I also recommend you make a thread for this hack,
if you plan on going on with it more, and doing more in the future.
