Update By: taskforce

Dynamic Designs has released a fully playable translation patch for Golf Daisuki!: O.B. Club.  The game itself is a fun little sports game that plays like a cross of regular and miniature golf. The courses feel like they've been ripped right out of crazy miniature golf style games but it has some things that are typically found more in regular golf games. Stuff like Reading the green and many holes having no boundaries to keep you in bounds. It also features sand traps and water hazards like would typically be found in regular golf.  Thanks goes to Phioxuesle for giving us the translation and project idea.

Awesome! I had almost forgotten about this game and wasn't sure if anyone was ever going to translate it. I'm so happy to see this get some attention.

I've never played this but I know it has some really enthusiastic fans who swear it's super-fun, so it's great to see it's been translated. I look forward to checking it out.

Great stuff, I noticed in the readme.txt that it does not run in Higan.
If anyone wants to get this running on newest Higan, you will need to change the byte at this address:
$7FD5 (Header ROMSPECS)
Using a hex editor, change it from $FC to $20 to make the game run on Higan & older copiers.

If it came from Satellaview, Higan probably expects it to be booted from within the BS-X app. But I haven't played much with Satellaview stuff in Higan so I don't know the procedure.

If that's the case, why wouldn't that change be included in the patch? Does it cause in compatibility with other emulators?

Well I was early to the Satellaview hacking scene, when this ROM came out, I found that it did not work on my old SNES copier a Super Wild Card DX.
Changing this byte made it work fully on that old copier years ago. So when I heard it did not work on Higan I suspected it was a similar thing.
I think this change could be included with the patch, and I think it would keep compatibility with all other emulators.

If anyone is interested, $7FD5 = $20 sets the: ROM MODE/SPEED = LoROM/SlowROM

To use it on Higan/bsnes-plus (which I recommend more) or perhaps sd2snes, use the *.bs extension. It's the extension for BS-X Memory Packs.

It should work on Higan. You need the BS-X ROM (which as a reminder, that I made a translated patch of it years ago).

And, as is most often the case with SFC translations, there's a fuckup in the expected source ROM/MD5.

The readme states the source ROM needs to be headerless/MD5: 78606C9057EAFB3716D09C3316E152E0

The only 2 versions of the ROM available are:
- Goodsnes (good rom variant)/No-intro -> Headerless/MD5: 64CC98482DE6FAB9B750464B5F2A3D35
- Goodsnes (hack1) -> Headerless/MD5: 73D06C8BF19D0642A8F47CA276871AC5

So yeah.. seems there's a glitch somewhere.

I stayed up all night playing this with my roommate a few days ago. This game is the *jam*, it's like an alternate SNES Hotshots. I played it on my modified(now uses USB drive  >:D  )Game Doctor 7. They really should have released this in the States.

There is a third ROM in GoodSNES:
Code: [Select]
<game name="Golf Daisuki! - Out of Bounds Club (BS) [h1C]">
<description>Golf Daisuki! - Out of Bounds Club (BS) [h1C]</description>
<rom name="Golf Daisuki! - Out of Bounds Club (BS) [h1C]" crc="ba9c98d3" sha1="2a3d5ba55de7ad107775279eef966faef060adf7"/>
</game>

^ hmm I'm not sure where you got that from, it's not in GoodSNES 2.0.4 at least.
Besides I can't fathom why DD would chose this one as source for their work when it appears to be the most broken rom available for this title!

  Can't fathom, huh? Ok. It's not that serious, sorry.  :) The ROM
Was downloaded from a ROM site that has planet in
it ( not linking but simple enough search ). I don't trust going to different wrong size or searching for different wrong site. This is the 1 I've known for a while now so it's who I use. Didn't realize there were three different ROM versions and I needed to know exactly which one was the right one. Sorry maybe someone can point me to the best website so I know where to get it to clean this room. Thank you for playing though I enjoy the game myself. :)

I'm not entirely sure what this all means, but the Golf Daisuki! rom from that Planet website is the No-Intro one, with MD5: b64CC98482DE6FAB9B750464B5F2A3D35 .
Ie, it does NOT match the source rom mentionned in the readme with expected MD5: 78606C9057EAFB3716D09C3316E152E0

Patching the No-Intro rom apparently works, yes, but who knows what might be wrong with it further down the line since it's not the approved ROM.

Massacre, do you mind linking me by pm to that [h1C] variant that was apparently used as source for the translation?

Hehe. Given the time of Bongo`'s reply, I'd assume you're looking at a on-the-way-to-work-using-my-tiny-phone-to-quickly-post-something-to-the-board kind of message.  ;D
