CTGP-7 - A Mod for Mario Kart 7

Custom Tracks Grand Prix - 7

CTGP-7 is a modpack for MK7 which includes several custom tracks, texture hacks, music hacks and adds extra features such as speedometer, speed modifier, backwards camera, etc  (and Red Yoshi :3). It can be easily installed and can update itself without a PC. To run the mod, you need CFW which uses Nanquitas' Luma3DS plugin loader. (There are 3dsx and cia installation options).

Don't have CFW? Check out CTGP-7 Citric Lite!

    I'd like to report a bug. I did in issues, but I'm not sure if I should do it here too? So here's the gist of it. MK7 save not recognized by CTGP-7. I can't upload images yet, but here's a link Just download that JPG and you'll be able to see what's going on. Keep in mind, I have a save file, and extra data.

  • I tried updating CTGP-7 to version 1.1.22, but it keeps failing on the 34th file and says “The requested url returned error: 404 not found.” I’ve tried robooting the system several times, but it keeps failing, so I’m not sure what’s wrong.

    Will there eventually be extra modes like in the wii version? Like item rain, online time trial, or even the tracks from it ported over?

  • Hello, i wanted to add some feedback for the Led items warning function.
    I would like you guys can remove the alert from the blooper item, as more than useful is a bit annoying. 
    Also (if possible) it would be great if this alert will alert you every time someone gets the lightning item before they use it.

    Thanks for reading me

    My questions are: Is anti-cheat also in Communitys? / What does the "Community-Code-Generator" do? / Why can't i use cheats in single player mode? / How do i restore a accidentally deleted custom track?

    Do you think a gamemode like MK8 Renegade Roundup would be possible?  It's my favorite battle mode.
