Huge update: So I dug around and found this unfinished tech demo of Superstar Plumber.
If that wasn't crazy and awesome enough, the thing is, it was an .iso file. Could this have been for the disc drive? Was that why it was cancelled? Was it the rumored "Super Mario 64 2/Super Mario 128?" or was it something entirely different? Now, even more insane.
Renaming it to a .z64 will actually load and play it correctly. I made this album
of me testing the game demo out and it seems to work perfectly. This will be the new base rom for finishing the game, and I will try and look for all the info I can on other levels. But this information raises more questions. Was it ported to the Disc Drive at the last moment? Why wasn't it actually converted or fully ported? If it was, how does nothing corrupt when renaming the file? This whole thing is burning my brain, but the worst thing is that these questions will remain unsolved. That is enough to drive me insane.
