The 2003 build of Diddy Kong Pilot is somewhat improved from the 2001 build, although Mario and friends are sadly gone. The ROM was released on November 5, 2011 by Rareware Central.

General Differences

  • During the challenges, the player has to collect all six coins and beat Cranky. In Banjo-Pilot, the player can collect as many Jiggies as they want but still have to be in first place.
  • By holding L during and after the Rareware logo at the start-up screen, it is possible to load the language select screen directly instead of going to the options menu.
  • The roster has increased to 9 characters with each character being split into one of three teams. Team Kong consists of Diddy Kong, Dixie Kong, Donkey Kong, and Funky Kong. Team Krem consists of Kritter, King K. Rool, Klaptrap, and Klump. Oddly, there is a 9th character, Cranky Kong, with his own team. Choosing Team Cranky leads you to a character select that is the same as the two other teams, but the only selectable character is Cranky.

Team Kong. Team Krem. "Team" Cranky.

  • In the cup races, the scoring (based on the player's ranking) is different in this prototype:
Point Spread Comparisons
1st 2nd 3rd 4th 5th 6th 7th 8th
Diddy Kong Pilot 9 6 3 1 0 0 0 0
Banjo-Pilot 10 8 6 4 3 2 1 0

It is worth noting that the Diddy Kong Pilot point spread is identical to the first three Mario Kart games, while the Banjo-Pilot point spread is identical to Mario Kart: Double Dash!!, which was the most recent Mario Kart game at the time when Banjo-Pilot was released.
