This game have randomly ranks..i've complete a cup winning all races, with msx coins and perfect times, and i receive a B o.O
DomiSwitch 25 Jan 2021 20:35
Wow, this was very hard, but i got it!
EddieMcMerlin 21 Jun 2021 01:01
Mastered, if you know how the ranking system works it's a really fun challenge.
Kamikoopa 22 Apr 2022 12:39
I think my game is legit glitched. I have 3 star every cup, easy. I am now doing the Snes cups, and the Extra Star Cup has been B rank for 10+ times. I did no items, beat 3 star times, and even got 140+ coins, and still B rank. Over and over and over. I compared a 3 star rank video to my times and coins, I did better and still B Rank.

@kamikoopa for anyone having attempting the three star challenges, read this first: https://gamefaqs.gamespot.com/gba/371318-mario-kart-super-circuit/faqs/67255

The way the ranking system works is pretty counterintuitive, since it uses this big formula for calculating your final score. In summary, do the following:
- DON'T use triple red shells, stars, or lightning
- You LOSE points pressing brake and letting off the gas
- You LOSE points for going "off course" (this includes the wet spots on island maps, etc. and is a separate penalty for "falling off" and having Lakitu save you)
- You LOSE points for hitting players, walls, etc.
- You MUST get first place in all races, and you gain points for winning
- You GAIN points from coins, although you don't need to get as many as you probably think depending on the other factors
- You GAIN points from hitting item boxes WHILE you already have an item.
- You GAIN points from getting hit with lightning (?!?!?!?)
- You GAIN points from mini-turbos at the start AND from drifting
- You LOSE points getting hit from items (besides lightning)
- Different characters give you different amounts of points (Yoshi gives you no bonus, Bowser gives you the largest bonus - roughly based on how easy they are to handle)

The game tallies up these hidden "points" for each level and takes the average of all courses in the cup. For specific values, refer to the guide, but following these guidelines should help.
alkalynity 27 Sep 2022 20:12
Coins are worth 4 "points," and you need at least a 330 point average across all four courses to get ***. In relative terms of points -> coins, you can think of other penalties/bonuses like this:
- Hitting a wall costs you the same amount of points as 5 coins (some maps it's actually more, since the "wall" counts as being "off track")
- One drift mini-turbo ~ 4 coins
- One start boost ~ 6 coins
- Getting hit by lightning = 10 coins
- Getting hit by an item and spinning out ~ 4 coins
- Not holding gas for an entire second subtracts 15 points, or roughly 4 coins. It tallies up the number of frames you don't hold gas down for and divides it by 4, then subtracts that number from your score. It's the same penalty for going offroad.
- Every frame you hold brake subtracts 2 points from your score. So holding it down for an entire second will take away 120 points, or 30 coins worth of points (since it runs at 60 FPS). Yeah.
- Hitting an item box when you already have an item ~ 4 coins (!)
- Falling off the map (i.e. Lakitu saves you) costs you 6 coins
- Using a retry costs you the equivalent of 30 coins
- Bowser gives you ~ 11 additional coins worth of points each map. Yoshi gives you ZERO. See the guide for each character's individual point values.
- You're guaranteed a certain amount of additional points each round based on how many "literal" points (as in, your score that the game gives you after the race), but it varies based on how many points you are ahead of your opponent. So not all of your points come from coins, item boxes, and boosts, but the majority of them will.

So finally Mastered! Some cups on 150cc were pretty difficult, but it's doable and thanks to you alkalynity for explaining the star rating.
RionAmane 7 Dec 2022 15:59
Almost done with the achievements, definitely a great set! But man, Extra Star Cup on 150cc is actually a nightmare to get good rank in. Everything until this point was doable, but this is genuinely a terrible cup to deal with the ranking system. Thank goodness there is no need to get Triple Star's on these Extra cups 'cause it would be a nightmare lol
Scott 1 Jan 2023 20:50
alkalynity what an amazing write-up!!! Thank-you so much for making it so clear how to get 3 stars
Olboll 2 Feb 2023 01:45
First master of 2023… excited to never touch this game again hahahaha. It’s a great set but super circuit, just like the original is stressful af to play (although it does handle considerably better) gl gl :)
Rileyyy 20 Feb 2023 07:54
I like to think of this game as taking place after a peace deal is brokered between Bowser and the Mushroom Kingdom given that bowser's minions and the toads are celebrating in harmony on the victory screen.

I also imagine that because of the native american inspired shy guys that they got left out of the deal and are trampled on by both kingdoms to the point of having their home used as a racetrack.
admiralsalty 21 May 2023 06:00
Mastered. Nicely done set that ive no complaints with the. The extreme RNG in the other hand that makes completing some of the extra cups with a higher ranking? Pure insanity. The amount of times id have to restart because it would suddenly out of nowhere feed the AI almost unlimited red shells or something equally stupid was maddening.

All in all though, excellent game and a decent set of challenges.
DuckswanTheAlbatross 6 Feb 2024 04:23
Completing Super Mario Kart was a pretty miserable experience for me, but I’m actually having fun with this one! This game is a vast improvement in terms of both controls and track design. The three-star system is awkward, but it’s nowhere near as frustrating as trying to beat SMK normally.
DuckswanTheAlbatross 11 Feb 2024 17:31
Mastered! This was a tough, but mostly positive experience. The SMK courses on 150cc were the most annoying thing to do, despite the fact that it wasn’t necessary to get three stars on them. One day I’ll spend hours trying to three-star the SMK cups, but for now I’m more than happy to put this game to rest.
