Mario Kart Arcade GP 2 (マリオカート アーケードグランプリ 2) is the second arcade-only iteration of Nintendo's Mario Kart series, developed by Namco for the Triforce arcade board. The game features a wide selection of characters from the Mario and Namco franchises, with gameplay similar to Mario Kart: Double Dash‼.

As an arcade game, after a track is completed credits must be inserted to continue playing, even if the player won the race. Additional tracks and characters can be unlocked through play, with player data saved on a magnetic card (sold separately). Each player can customize his profile, using the arcade cabinet's built in camera to take photograph of the player's face, which can be customized then displayed above the player's character during multiplayer races. On top of adding new tracks and characters to Mario Kart Arcade GP's catalog, GP2 adds color commentary that plays throughout races.

Triforce

The Triforce branch is required to run this game, as well as a series of settings.

  • The AM-Baseboard needs to be set to both SP1 and Port1 in Config ---> GameCube.
  • Cheats must be enabled
  • The below patch must be used. It will give you 99 Credits so you can play the game and allow the game to boot properly. To apply it, right click on the game in the gamelist, click Edit Config, and paste the patch into the config file. You must then make sure the patches are enabled in the "Patches" tab.

4.0-315 Triforce Windows 10 Intel Core i7-6700HQ @ 2.6GHz NVIDIA GeForce GTX 970M 60FPS most of the time with occasional dips during races, no graphical issues as far as I can tell but I don't have an original working machine to compare it
