Mobile Golf

Game Boy

Game Description:

Mobile Golf is an sports game for the Game Boy.

Translation Description:

Here it is the long awaited translation for Mobile Golf, the obscure Japan only Mario Golf game that once had online play!

The patch doesn’t only translate the game, but it also changes the way things are unlocked in-game, so you can unlock the DLC (courses, characters, minigames and clubs) legitly without using any cheat device! Check the readme for more information on how to unlock content.

Translating this game has been a nightmare because Camelot decided to store almost everything as compressed graphics. It uses a compression algorithm that had to be cracked, then a custom tool for compression/decompression had to be built as well. Lots of texts are hardcoded as graphics (and compressed, of course), and some of them are duplicated and scattered several times across the ROM.

The translation is missing some Net Clubhouse (the online lobby) dialogs. But since the online service closed on 2002, these dialogs are not accessible anymore. However, there is a Mobile Adapter preservation project that could change this in a future…
