Character WADs for SRB2 Kart are set up differently than regular character WADs. The frames are organized differently, with far fewer frames needed in total.

  • normalspeed - This sets the "Top Speed" stat shown in the multiplayer character select screen, which will show a rank in the character select ranging from -4 to +4, with 0 being "average", depending on what value normalspeed is set to:
    • 31 = -4 (Horrifying)
    • 32 = -3 (Awful)
    • 33 = -2 (Bad)
    • 34 = -1 (Below Average)
    • 35 = 0 (Average)
    • 36 = +1 (Above Average)

    • 39 = +4 (Incredible)
  • acceleration - This sets the "Handling" stat shown in the multiplayer character select screen, which will show a rank in the character select ranging from -8 to +8, with 0 being "average", depending on what value acceleration is set to:

Stat Balance Check Equation

The way to determine if a character is properly balanced for Kart is to use this simple equation

4x + 2y + z = 0

x would be the rank that would be displayed with the normalspeed value, which you can use the table above for reference

y would be the rank that would be displayed with acceleration

z would be the rank that would be displayed with accelstart

Now, here's an example of the values you could use:

normalspeed = 34 (-1)

accelstart = 144 (+2)

acceleration = 43 (+1)

Now use the ranks that are shown in-game or in the above table and plug in the equation with them

4(-1) + 2(1) + 2 = 0

-4 + 2 + 2 = 0

-2 + 2 = 0

0 = 0

As long as 0 = 0 is the end result, you have a balanced character.
