Welcome to the homepage of the CTools programs and the SZS Modifier.
Tutorials about custom Mario Kart Wii track creation, as well as loads of great information about file formats can be found at wiki.tockdom.de.
The CTools library is a series of programs designed to edit Nintendo's game files, but specifically Mario Kart Wii. The tools are no longer in active development. They can be downloaded from www.chadsoft.co.uk/ctools/setup/ctoolssetup.msi
The SZS Modifier program is the original program to allow you to load up and alter Mario Kart Wii's SZS files. This allows the user to perform texture hacks and model hacks to Mario Kart Wii and any other Nintendo Wii games which use the same .szs file data and then export these files back into the game. Some instructions for the useage of the program can be found in the video here (now a little outdated) or in the readme at www.chadsoft.co.uk/wiicoder/readme.pdf.
