Welcome to Sour Music Kart, a new & personalized Super Mario Kart hack.
Sour Music Kart was started by user Blabrake as a tribute to his IRL friends, with in game jokes like the known Parigo Kart.
We then decided to collaborate in it to bring a complete new experience: Blabrake is in charge of the new graphics and music, while I do the tracks.
This thread here is to keep the progress of this hack.
However, why is more accessible as an in joke hack, is that its intended to explain the in joke things to people outside of his circle of friends, aswell as not over challenging tracks.
So, whats changed in Sour Music Kart? Well I could say literally everything
New content include:
-Brand new music
(minus title screen so far)
-24 new tracks, with a Super Mario Kart feel emphasis
-Edited miscellaneous graphics, such as menus, character select, etc.
So as of now, here is the current progress of this.
-All backgrounds changed/modified
-19 out of 20 tracks are done
-All battle tracks complete
-All music replaced (minus title screen and victory fanfares as of now)
-New item graphics
-New title screen
-New Podium screen
As before, this is a WIP, so anything you see here, might change in the end.
Now, lets head up to some screens, shall we?
~New Title Screen & Character Select~
The characters are, from left to right:
Upper row: Freddy Goulet, Sunfighter, Jakey Boones and Tyler
Bottom row: Dan, Gully, Jules and Rozy
~New tracks & battle courses~
All the Eight themes are mostly based on real life locations, where the characters are from.
-Wisconsin (replaces Mario Circuit)
Gully's turf. Race inside an American Football Stadium. You can see the players of both teams on the background as they watch you race, along with the crowd.
-Lame Foods (replaces Donut Plains)
The races here takes place inside the lamest grocery store of the local Brainerd, MN area as the customers shop. Watch out for the Manager(s) of the store who jumps out when you least expect!
-Boones Bay (replaces Bowser's Castle)
Venture into Jakey Boones domain, which takes place on a Pirate Fortress. Beware the Stone Skulls who will try to crush you!
Portland, OR. Home of DoubleDutchRecords. The race tracks here consist of sand bars in the middle of the rivers that flow downtown. You can see the skyline and even the peak of Mt. Hood off in the distance.
-Nuked Chicago (replaces Ghost Valley)
Dan's theme. Carefully race across the debris and ruins of Chicago, who was recently blasted by a nuke!
-Off the Grid (replaces Choco Island)
Sunfighter's dream come true! Tents, camp fires, and solar panels. Just the basics to live off of so that you can keep away from the city!
-Brainerd ('replaces' Vanilla Lake)
Brainerd, MN. Home to many things sourmusic related. It's north central Minnesota, so of course we're racing on a frozen lake here.
-Record Studio (replaces Rainbow Road)
The record studio. Where good things can happen with music. We're not here to jam though. Focus on your driving, stay on the red carpet, or else fall into obscurity!
All 4 battle tracks are done. Enjoy new ways to battle your friends!Video of the Second Cuphttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X_vH8Od7l5MTheres a whole more to cover, like the items and the music. You can find that information at the webpage of the hack.Whats left to do:
-New title screen music
-New racers tunes
-Edited cup selection screen.Demo
This demo includes the first cup with all new tracks (2 from the first cup and 3 from the second cup) as well as the first battle track.
It's outdated by now, as it features a driver who no longer appears in the final game, as well as the old Ghost Valley theme.
Thanks for stopping by!
