It was inside the files of a archive containing MKT N64 source code (possibly from the same prototype shown here); and said archive was in another one that also contained the source code for both MK3 PSX and PC ports. This archive was released on 4chan by a anonymous user, which claimed that got these from the original developer; and while it was out of nowhere (which would look a bit suspicious), the contents in the archive (including MKT N64 source) were confirmed as legitimate and functional.
