ok I'm back,
To recap on what I mentioned above pertaining to "L is real 2401", screenshots of the SM64DS/WiiVC versions are not really necessary, but the VC version was updated with 640x480 resolution; equivalent to the Expansion Pak.

Moving on,
By now I suppose, we are now familiar with this myth in SM64 known as L is real 2401- located in the Castle courtyard. It has been floating around for years online much to my surprise...
I want to point out that I completed this game shortly after it's release, so the idea that this myth is new info to me should hopefully be irrelevant!

First let's take a look at the connection it does have to a little game called The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time.

What a game!!
It was basically the first time that the language of Hyrule - Hylian; created by the Hylia was represented in-game so well.

The only other time that I'm aware of where Hylian is not used in-game is in Dodongo's Cavern on the stone that perpetuates the 'L is real 2401' myth, but let's table that for now.

back to Super Mario 64! ^_^
A similar thing is also going on in this game with things like signs and visual text as well, and I found it out looking into this thread further. When it comes to ANY in-game text- like messages read, and told to and by Mario, they all use the same FONT... Even in the Castle Courtyard. And it actually reads

Not convinced??

here is the exact Font template

I urge you to find a way to copy, paste, print, trace, type with, fax, share, link, and/or tweet this and see with the naked eye.
Ask yourself- 'what happens to images, sprites, textures, and even graphic text when buffered into the N64 arena? especially up close?
it gets blurry... let's go to the courtyard
