For a while, there was a nice interest in MKDS hacking. I'm still surprised it worked so well, given the quality of the 'MKDS course modifier by MKDS'.

But obviously, it died. I guess because Gericom's tool was unreliable and hard to use, model importing is still only possible with software stolen from Nintendo, and lately DSHack died. And of course there's novelty wearing off, as always.

The idea appeared when they found out a DSHack test board running off ABXD, that is still online. Shit can't be done with it, though, as Yami (the server owner) has vanished from the internet.

This gave me an idea. Trying again. But this time, we'd have a proper toolset. Namely, a course editor that is easy to use, and model importing tools (that would also benefit to NSMB since the format is the same).

We'd also have a good knowledge base with all kinds of technical information. Not just "MKDS course shitifer tutorial #54644".

Development would follow the right route. Not adding a billion viewers for random game files and other useless toys. But implementing what the community wants.


Well uh, are there still people interested? There was a nice effort in the beginning, after all.

Besides, MKDS hacking can be seen as a stepping stone to MKWii. Entrance barrier is lower.

I will definitely be in. I have tons of custom models form tracks that were supposed to go to the wii, but I couldn't get them working because no way to test.

And I would be MKDS hacking if Gericoms tool worked for me...

First step would definitely be collecting documentation on the NSBMD format and finish reverse-engineering that motherfucker.

I hope there aren't too many changes between games.

The old MKDS Hacking website, dshack.org or cw-games.org was cancelled because the popularity start to down. Less CT's and texture hacks,but yes, there are possible revival the MKDS hacking,I also would support the project because i was also a MKDS hacker, so good luck!

I found this Website for a few minutes.
Maybe it is the new MKDS Hacking Website.

Edit: The Website has been deleted.

It's the board I mentioned in the first post.

Yami is the only one with server access and she vanished from the internet. And that board is fucked up. Basically that whole shit is going down. The server will die eventually if Yami doesn't come back, be it by getting hacked or just lack of payment.

Well I sure am interested. Being one of the past MKDS hackers, I'd like to see the community make a comeback. I’m glad some new faces are getting involved this time too.

Thanks guys I wasn't expecting this to happen! I had already given up in MKDS Hacking but I may return with new MKDS CTs

Shit will mostly depend on my motivation and how many people are willing to help, though.

Who has experience in reverse-engineering and/or programming? (I'd prefer C#, but C/C++ or Java can do too)

That sounds interesting. I´m sorry that I cannot contribute anything at the moment but if this project is a success I would like to try out MKDS Hacking too.

So what, are we resurrecting SYStEM? Don't let our hopes down, please.
I'll do what I can to keep it alive.

I'll go on vacation tomorrow, so I won't be active as much. I'll still be here though, and attempt to set up some shit.

I'll start by reusing some SM64DSe code, and get a basic NKM editor + NSBMD viewer going.

I don't think I'll be making any CTs any time soon. But I'll be there to help when I can.

Edit: So would we be seeing a "Mario Kart DS Hacking Domain" one day?

I have some knowledge in Java and I may be able to help, but probably not as much.

I made a local test board which is named 'MKDS Central'. This isn't final, though.

Also, Java might be interesting, although I plan to go with C# for the editor.

Do you have anyone who knows C#? I may be able learn it, but it may take me months or years to even comprehend how it works.

Dunno. Maybe Ninjifox but I doubt he'd be willing to work on MKDS stuff. Dirbaio knows C# but is completely convinced that Java is the best thing since sliced bread.

Blarg.

Java is NOT the best programming language… trust me. I've had problems with Java at Apple®, programming various files that have to be used in Apple®'s crappy iOS and OS X. Java is an alternative that is fairly good but I'd also prefer C#.

We need someone with C# experience. We can't convince  Dirbaio to code in C#, right?
