This is a port made by Tock. It features custom objects, CLR0 animations, proper shaders, and sound triggers.


  • Riidefi, for providing the course model (without animations).
  • Baoulettes, for allowing the author to use his Grumble Volcano tree model and inspiring the author to use sound triggers.
  • Wiimm, for creating the lava bubble routes.

Usage of Extended Presence Flags since v1.3.2

Together with DS Airship Fortress (Sniki) and GCN Sherbet Land (Tock), this track is the first one that supports the Extended presence flags.

There are problems with the synchronization between Bowser and Fireballs. The time offset is different offline than online. So Tock released two versions, one for offline and one for online. Distributions had to choose a version. There were also 2 variants with different item boxes (original or rotating). That makes 2x2 = 4 variants.

Wiimm has also released 4 variants with v1.3.2. Without LE-CODE they are identical to Tocks versions. Depending on offline / online, LE-CODE activates exactly the right objects. From LE-CODE's point of view, there are therefore only two different variants: original or rotating item boxes. So if using them together with a current LE-CODE, Bowser and Fireballs are synchronized offline and online.
