Mario Golf Toadstool Tour PAL 60hz Patch

Hack of Mario Golf: Toadstool Tour


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 50fps to 60).

For this one there’s only a xDelta patch, as the data modified is way past the 16MB byte range of the IPS format.

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

This is one of those rare games where they actually put some effort into converting to PAL50. Things like the animations on the Character Select screen and the ‘hole result’ screen and, most importantly, the swing meter during gameplay play at the correct speed at 50Hz… which means they are actually too fast using this patch. That’s not to say it’s all good, the menu transitions for example have not been adjusted and play too slow at 50, but it’s not quite as easy as patching the framerate and calling it a day as it often tends to be.

So for once, I’d actually recommend playing this at 50Hz if you’re using the PAL version.
