Update By: RunTheCoins

This is a complete sound improvement of Mario Kart Super Circuit, that makes the game play at a higher mix rate, without lag, it does sound about the same to some, but if you listen closely to a lot of tracks they do sound more tolerable, The author suggest testing this mod out with rainbow road or boo lake, they sound a lot better here!

This also makes the drums more noticeable so you can hear tracks like Lakeside Park in better quality, and same goes for Bowser's Castle.


But if you don't particularly like Mario Kart Super Circuit's soundtrack, this may change your opinion.

Is this compatible with the Mario Kart 64 voice lines hack?

Just tried it out and it doesn't. Using the USA and European rom, you can't use both hacks.

The sound improvement hack isn't compatible if you use both the Better Colors patch and The Original Sunset Wilds Title Card & Sprites Restoration patch in one rom.

You'll have to use them separately.

Ok It actually is possible to use multiple patches, though not exactly directly, I'll explain the steps soon once I figure it all out, though all mods should be useable with this one

Sounds great! Thank you so much for going through and doing that!

Hello, I have used this hack along with the others that have been mentioned,and I have no issues at all with it. I played through the whole game and everything was fine. I did use the no intro version of the game. I hope this helps. Normal IPS patching method also.

How are you guys applying the patch?  I've tried Floating IPS (gave me a blank file), Lunar IPS (wouldn't load in mGBA), and the RHDN online patcher (no change).  Not sure what I'm doing wrong.

Hey RunTheCoins!!! I've not succeeded in getting your hacks to work. Is there a special way to patch them or something??

Also, about the GB ones (Marios and DuckTales) I've not been able to notice the difference. Again, am I doing something wrong?

Thanks in advance!!

honestly people sometimes just don't notice a difference, some tracks are unnoticeably changed, though you will notice some tracks like boo lake and bowser's castle are completely noticable.

I'm not sure the GB DuckTales works correctly.


It expands the ROM from $10000 ==> $77F4D but doesn't modify the header other than checksum. Then it adds a bunch of triangle waveforms in expanded ROM area (7557F, 76A3E, .. 77F3E). I checked with a debugger and game never touches these areas.

I also did BGB audio recordings of both (un)patched ROMs and found 1:1 identical output.

Maybe correct patch is not uploaded to site?


Super Mario Land has exact same problem. And "DuckTales - NES triangle Patch.ips" == "Super Mario Land DX - Sound Improvement.ips" (100% identical patches).
