Do you think there will an asm hack like ctgp-r for mario kart 7?

Mallis The title says it all! Also i would love to hear why you think why.

PabloMK7 There are already some minor asm hacks. However, with the power of NTR plugins we can do much better things than asm. (For example, OnionFS is nothing more than an asm hack that replaces the game open file function with a custom one). If enough research is made, sure it will be possible to do an asm as big as mkwii, but since there is much less interest in MK7, it will take a lot to be made, or just won't be made at all. (I cannot do it myself because lack of knowledge).

MKGirlism But the only problem with NTR Plugins is, they're not native to the ROM, or at least, that's what I assume (I never tried NTR Plugins before).
The problem with something not being native to the ROM, is that it makes the game much slower, normally.

I can therefore see why Mallis-san is explicitly asking for ASM Hacks.

PabloMK7 Obviusly, if you add more code it will take more time to be executed. But the same will happen with asm hacks. With plugins you can hook into game functions so your function will get executed from the plugin instead of the game, (asm jump).

Mallis obviously it would take longer to execute more code :P and since NTR plugins are not native to the rom, could adding code to a cia be more effeciant than NTR? just a guess.
