I have a 7000 VR, but battles are completely different. I get 15+ coins, but then I get hit by POWs, shells, Mega-Mushrooms, etc. At the end, I have less than six. And then it “forgets” that I once had 15 coins, and I lose VR. I don’t even know how OTHER people get high ratings. In the manual it says you can choose to play people near your rating, but either I can’t find that setting or 3,000 is “near”. I refuse to believe 5800 is my “true” VR. Help!
Games Guru: Here are some tips. Take note of number 8. http://www.wikihow.com/Dominate-Mario-Kart-Wii-Online-Racing
Regarding the rating system, yes, it could be better. Maybe the new Mario Kart will deal with that a bit better.
I have almost all of the characters and karts, but there are a few that I’m stuck on. How do I get Dry Bowser, Baby Daisy, Mii Costume B, and Bowser Jr.
For Dry Bowser, get a 1 Star rating in all the 150 cc Cups.
For Baby Daisy, get a 1 Star rating in all the 50cc Cups
For Mii Costume B, unlock all 32 Expert Staff Ghost Data in Time Trials Mode.
For Bowser Jr., get a 1 Star rating in all 50cc Retro Cups.
I need help. I printed out how to unlock everything, but I don’t know what an expert staff ghost is! Can you tell me?
Games Guru: Ah, the mysterious Expert Staff Ghosts. These are super-good finish times made by the Nintendo developers for Time Trial Mode. You have to beat the Normal Staff Ghosts by as much as 3 seconds to 10 seconds to unlock them. It won’t be easy. But keep trying. Good luck!
Can you find me some tips for how to win the final racecar? I have won all the others but can’t win the last one no matter what I try. Thank you for your help.
Games Guru: If you’re talking about the last medium kart, you have have to unlock the 24 expert staff ghosts first.
Games Guru, how do we unlock the character Funky Kong in this game?
Games Guru: You need to get the expert staff ghost. And you need to be fast in two to eight seconds, depending on the track length. The second window after you are done with your Time Trial will tell you if you unlocked one. Get four to unlock Funky Kong.
How do you get Mii Outfit B? I have every other person except Mii Outfit B.
Games Guru: You have to unlock the expert ghosts on ALL 32 tracks. Then you’ll get Mii Outfit B. It’s not easy since it takes a lot of time. The expert ghost in Ghost Valley 2 is really hard.
Dear Games Guru, How do you get a star on Mario Kart?
Games Guru: That’s a great question. You have to do at least some of these things:
– You need final score of at least 52.
– Stay ahead of the pack in your laps.
– Don’t use the Bullet Bills very much to get into the lead.
– When you’re in the air after jumping a ramp, do tricks.
– Place first or at least lead for a good part of the race.
– Don’t fall off the tracks.
If you want three stars, you have to get a score of 60. That means perfection, and it’s really hard to do. Getting one star is really good, too!
Games Guru: No codes, but here’s how to unlock the Golden Wheel: Use the Wii Wheel in all modes. After that, go online. You’ll see the Golden Wheel is unlocked – right next to your name.
