Ancient Lake is a race course from Diddy Kong Racing. It is the first track encountered in the game, and therefore quite simple. The entire track is shaped similar to N64 Luigi Raceway. The first version was DJ Lowgey's first ported custom track. The second release by Mewtwo2000 features shading, original trees and sky, animated water, camera fixes, and balloons replacing the item boxes. The original version of the track on Diddy Kong Racing featured a large dinosaur as an obstacle; future releases of this port will feature this dinosaur.

Download Info

The v2.0 download includes seven different track files. The only differences between them are the item boxes. The ones with the balloon word have balloon-looking item boxes, the ones with the itembox word use standard Mario Kart Wii item boxes. The DKR versions feature them only where balloons were placed in Diddy Kong Racing, while the extra versions feature item boxes in different placements instead. The all versions feature the item boxes from both DKR and extra versions. Music can be found in the music folder.

Wiimms update to v2.1 includes only 1 version with balloons and the extra places.
