A remake of Diddy Kong Racing on the Nintendo DS. While it adds in extra features and new characters, some parts of the N64 original were lost in the conversion, particularly Banjo and Conker. (Of course, at this point the latter had no business being in a family game anyway.)

Hmmm...
To do:
Find a way into assets.bin, it's where most of the game's files are stored.

Possible Debug Menu And Test Maps

Elementary, my dear Cactus.
This needs some investigation.
Discuss ideas and findings on the talk page.
Specifically: See if it's still possible to access these.

Present in the game directory are a number of files with names that suggest a debug menu along with some test maps may be present in the game. It's currently unknown if the files for any of these are still present in the ROM.

  • ARTUROTESTLEVEL.lev
  • BENTESTLEVEL.lev
  • LEVEL_DEBUG_MENU.lev
  • LEVEL_DWC_TEST.lev
  • LEVEL_MB_TEST.lev
  • LEVEL_TEXT_MENU.lev
  • ROBTESTLEVEL.lev
  • SFXTESTLEVEL.lev
  • TREVTESTLEVEL.lev
  • wish_race_test.lev

Unused Sounds

Two voice clips of Yoshi, likely left over from a devkit as they're at a much higher bitrate than the rest of the character voices.

An unused jingle.

Unused Music

This song was used in the original game during the cutscene that plays when you defeat Wizpig in Future Fun Land but isn't used here.

Hidden Triangles

If the game crashes, it will display a simple crash debug screen.

Debugging Text

Present at 0x149388 in the ROM is some wifi related text along with the text for the crash debugger.
