Mario Party 5 PAL 60hz Patch

Hack of Mario Party 5

Description:

PAL 50 is an infamous format if you live in Europe, and you were into games between the eighties and the mid two thousands.

This hack changes the game’s PAL 50 format and instead makes it PAL 60 by default, changing the resolution from 576i to 480i; and making it run at the original speed it should work, instead of running around 16% slower (In this case, from 50 fps to 60).

Included are both IPS and xDelta patches, so you can choose.

Huge thanks and credits to Ralf@gc-forever for his original code.

PAL translations + NTSC frequency? Pretty rad.

Reviewed By: Diddy64wii on 01 Jan 2018

One thing that disappointed me about the PAL version of Mario Party 5, is the slowness of the movements during the board parts. Forcing the European players to play with a slower speed for this game is really horrendous. Super Smash Bros. Melee and Super Mario Sunshine had a 60Hz option in Europe. Why not this game?

Thankfully, this patch fixes that issue. Now I can play one of my childhood games at a glorious 60Hz frequency while still having the French translation from the PAL iso. Nice job!
