Talk:Mario Kart DS
I can't confirm at the moment, but the unfinished Nokonoko stage definitely looks like it could be a remake of the Koopa Troopa Beach stage from Mario Kart 64, with the partially animated goombas corresponding to the crabs from the original.
- MK64's Koopa Troopa Beach starts with a wall directly in front of you, while Nokonoko doesn't, and KTB's shortcut is entirely different. I don't remember any stage that looked quite like this one at all, so I think this just seems to be a scrapped new stage. --Ninetales 01:29, 3 August 2011 (EDT)
I was listening to the 2SF set for MKDS tonight, and music 2a sounds like the Chomp theme from Double Dash... was this used at all in MKDS? --Ninetales 01:29, 3 August 2011 (EDT)
Yes, in mission 5-1. Goomba98 18:17, 22 February 2012 (EST)
The Awards ceremony 'course' in Mario Kart: Double Dash had its own Map which was different from the course it was. Have you checked this games Award 'course' for anything of interest. --SamuelEarl666 11:44, 13 June 2012

I remember a long time ago, there was this button combination you had to enter in the Time Trials records menu that gave you a code, kind of like the one in Mario Kart Double Dash. I forgot exactly what the button combination was, though. ExtremeSpyro 22:36, 13 February 2013 (EST)
- While I don't have any specific info on this, these codes-for-passwords were present in a number of others games around this time, including, even, Fire Emblem on the GBA. If memory serves, these codes were able to be shared through a Nintendo service, and would act as a sort of leaderboard for the various games and their individual records/stats. If this game's password is deemed acceptable content for TCRF, we have a few games that can be included too.--Celice 04:26, 14 February 2013 (EST)
Dokan Course and Toad Circuit
On Mario Kart 7, someone on DSHack.org noticed Toad Circuit has a very similar track shape to dokan_course on MKDS. I looked at the map, and to me it does look as though it's based on dokan_course. To compare the bottom screen maps, use the map from Mario Kart CW X or Tri. I know that what I said is more relevant in the MK7 talk page than here. The texture near the beginning of Toad Circuit has a texture from dokan_course (the floor that's after the red 'pipe').

About a long time ago on a date nobody remembers of a forum post of a closed forum, I FOUND THIS.
The original model of the test1_course shows that it's not only a debug track, it's the test course of Mario Kart DS! Testing stuff like corkscrews and loops (For Rainbow Road), Pipes (dokan_course) and stuff. Superstarxalien169 (talk) 13:47, 11 April 2014 (EDT)
