Mario Party 8 (マリオパーティ8 Mario Pāti Eito) is a party video game and the eighth installment in the Mario Party series (tenth in Japan). It is the first title in the series to be released for the Wii and the first Mario Party title to have the ability to use Mii characters.



16:9 Aspect Ratio Fix

The built-in Widescreen Hack causes Board Clipping and Reflection Issues. The following Gecko code works as a replacement, causing less issues. To avoid conflicts, make sure that Widescreen Hack is disabled while using this code. The 16:9 included in the game only works in menus and the title screen so a Widescreen fix is necessary.
