Welcome to Resident Evil Kart!
This is a troll hack I decided to make while researching how the camera system in Super Mario Kart works. It is a fun, yet very challenging hack that puts a new spin on how you play Super Mario Kart!
What is this hack? Well, in the original Resident Evil games, a technique was used in order to make the games feasible on the system and to introduce an element of horror to the games, something called "Perspective Shots". Instead of the camera always following the player around in an over-the-shoulder or dynamic camera mode, the cameras and views were all in
predetermined locations around the map showing fixed shots of the rooms.
I have applied this principle to Super Mario Kart to make this hack! Instead of the camera following you around like normal, the camera is in predetermined locations around the track and provide fixed perspective shots of the track as you drive around it. This absolutely makes the game a lot harder to play, and provides an interesting challenge to those who wish to take it on!
I have also added support for the Battle Tracks for Battle Mode, so you can play with these perspective shots against another player, and see how well you can stretch your abilities!
Have Fun! >:D
