Smile DK64 - Disco Chunky Hack?

Hi all, I'm new here, so hello first of all!

I was wondering how hard it would be to replace Chunky Kong's model with the Disco version of him only seen during the DK Rap?

I don't know much about rom hacking, I've played around with GEDecompress and Bottles Glasses a little (without really accomplishing anything besides decrypting the DK64 rom haha)

I was wondering if just finding the chunky model in hex and replacing it with the disco model is all it would take, but I couldn't find a rom map anywhere.

BASICALLY just looking for a little guidance. Thanks for reading!

(tl;dr let's replace regular old Chunky with Disco Chunky!)

EDIT: I guess someone has done this already haha: http://geno2925.tumblr.com/post/9518...starring-disco

No real details though, but it's reassuring to think this could be as simple as a gameshark code!

EDIT2: Found the code I needed in the YouTube comments of this video!

I guess if you wanted to get really crazy, each of these codes will replace a different kong with Disco Chunky with CRAZY results.

8075C41B 000E: Replace Donkey
8075C42B 000E: Replace Diddy
8075C43B 000E: Replace Lanky
8075C44B 000E: Replace Tiny
8075C45B 000E: Replace Chunky

I wasn't able to stress test this a lot, but all the Disco mods except Chunky go through a lot of walls, making things like the beetle race with Tiny pretty much impossible. Got some INSANE crashes trying to play the instruments with Tiny and Diddy, but worked perfect with Donkey Kong. I attached some pictures, I'll keep posting the shenanigans I encounter if it interests people!
