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 extended presence flags.

There are synchronization problems between the Bowser statue (crab and koopaFigure) and fireball (VolcanoBall1) objects. The time offset is different offline than online. Due to this, the author released two versions: one for offline and one for online; distributions would have to choose a version. There were also two variants with different item boxes: original and rotating. This increased the amount of track variants to four.

Wiimm has also released four variants with v1.3.2. Without LE-CODE, they are identical to what Tock provided. Depending on if the track is played offline or online, LE-CODE activates the correct objects. From LE-CODE's point of view, there are only two different variants: original or rotating item boxes. If using them together with a current build of LE-CODE, the Bowser statue and its fireballs are synchronized offline and online.
