"Originally for Diddy Kong"[edit]

My first point is that the video does indeed cite internal game files. However, to say that it was "originally" for Diddy Kong would be less accurate than to say it still is associated with Diddy Kong, in the same way that the files for Baby Park indicate it "belongs" to Baby Luigi instead of his brother. However, the video then goes on to say how the internal files for Mushroom Bridge and Mushroom City are associated with Koopa Troopa and Paratroopa, so following this logic, one would also have to say that these courses are associated with the Koopas, when they clearly aren't.

Alternatively, while the placeholder name for this course may have been citing Diddy Kong, so too were the Mushroom courses for the Koopas. Then should we say that these courses were originally for the Koopas? No, because nothing tangible came out of that. So this course was never associated with Diddy Kong any more than Mushroom Bridge with Koopa.

My logic may be a bit over the place right now, but if you have any direct questions I think I can answer them. MarioComix (talk) 02:16, 12 June 2016 (EDT)

I don't think it's that big of a leap to say that x character is associated with y course because their names are directly assigned to the course. I also don't see how Koopa Troopa and Paratroopa break that logic. Yes, the courses don't have a visual resemblance in-game, but the code is what it is, and that shouldn't go unmentioned.

We should probably word it in a different way. Say that the file name is called "Diddy Kong" and don't make any more assumptions after that. BabyLuigiFire.png Ray Trace(T|C) 15:13, 12 June 2016 (EDT)
I suppose we should just mention the internal files. Looking at it now, I should concede that the internal game files make some association of the course to Diddy Kong; however that is not to say the track was "originally" for him. MarioComix (talk) 17:27, 12 June 2016 (EDT)
