Emulation
Guides on emulating older games

5th game in the Puyo Puyo series. This was the first Puyo Puyo game to be made by Sonic Team instead of Compile. It was also the last game to be released on the Dreamcast by Sega, and one of the very few titles that Sega released specifically for Macs in Japan. This Mac version was released a few months before the Windows version and doesn't include the online play of that version.

Some of the Mac and Windows versions were also bundled with the very highly sought after Sega Saturn USB control pads (white color).

This game can be grouped into two versions with a few significant differences between them.

Original: Arcade, Dreamcast, Mac, Windows
Console: GameCube, Xbox, PS2

Original version:
Puyos are sprite based, no camera zoom-in during combos, can save on Options screen and on Game Over screen, credits can be skipped through after watching them once.

Console version:
Puyos are polygon based, can toggle camera zoom-in during combos, can save on Options screen only, credits are unskippable. See this video for an example.

Figured out the problem. A poison apple to the individual who gave this entry one star.

The patching app for Puyo Puyo Fever, all versions of it that are available right now, only patches when Mac OS X's localization is set to Japanese. If it's set to prefer English, then it will not do anything useful.

Added the fixed version of the patch and a new, cdr rip of Puyo Puyo Fever Mac OS X that works great.

The Internet Archive version does work if I use ccd2iso to combine the ccd/cue/sub/img file into a single ISO file.

That combined file is a good 100 MB smaller too. I suppose they use the redundant ccd format to save non-data tracks? Makes sense, if there's an audio track along with data tracks.

This disk image is a bit strange. It's ripped by Toast (6?) but it's not ISO compliant. Disk Utility fails to recognize it. I tried the .img version on the Internet Archive, but that one also can't be recognized by Mac OS X's `hdiutil imageinfo -verbose ...` or Disk Utility.

Toast 6 is able to mount the disk. First time I've needed to do that on OS X. I'll see in a week or two if creating a new image from hard copy fixes this mess.

That's not all. The patch app doesn't seem to do anything, even though it appears based on visual feedback that I'm expected to drag the PuyoPuyo Fever.app into the Patch App's window.

I ended up moving the "Info.plist", "InfoPlist.strings", and "PuyoPuyo Fever" files from within PuyoFUpdate.app's {application bundle}/Contents/Resources/ChangeItem directory and overwrote the old files within "PuyoPuyo Fever.app"'s application bundle (/Contents, /Contents/Resources/Japanese.lproj, and /Contents/MacOS respectively)

Now I'm playing Puyo Puyo Fever 1.2.0 on Mac OS X 10.5. That was a bit much work. Smile
