Custom Robo, known in Japan as Custom Robo Battle Revolution (カスタムロボ バトルレボリューション, Kasutamu Robo Batoru Reboryūshon), is a 2004 action RPG developed by Noise and published by Nintendo for the Nintendo GameCube. It is the fourth title of the Custom Robo series and the first to be released outside of Japan.

Custom Robo uses a real time battle system with the goal of obtaining better Robos and parts to improve your game. In additional to the traditional RPG like "Story Mode" from previous games in the franchise, Custom Robo also adds "Arena" and "Grand Battle" (tournament) modes.



Certain parts of the game tend to crash (i.e. the part near the end with the twins). This can be fixed by disabling "Enable Dual Core" and "Enable Idle Skipping" under Options->Configure->General and enabling "Skip EFB Access from CPU" under Options->Graphics->Hacks.


This game doesn't need non-default settings to run properly. If you want to get an overview about settings related to performance, please see the performance guide. A full list of config options is available at Template:Config/doc

Test Entries
Revision OS Version CPU GPU Result Tester
r7435 Windows 7 x64 AMD Athlon II 1075T NVIDIA GeForce 460 GTX Must be run in DX11 or OpenGL to have any visual. Works great including multiplayer.
r7584 Windows 7 x64 Intel Core i7-2820QM @ 2.3GHz AMD Radeon HD 6970M Video runs perfectly with DX11. Background music glitches, but no effect to the game. Slowdown only outside of battle during cutscenes. Battles run perfectly. sol
3.0-235 Windows 7 x64 AMD Phenom II X6 ATI Radeon HD 5750 Needs DX11 or OpenGL. Runs great, but occasionally locks up randomly. Savestate often and restart the game, then go back to the save state. The Twins scene, which normally crashes, works if "Skip EFB access from CPU" is on in graphics settings.
4.0.1 Windows 7 x64 Intel Core i5-3350p NVIDIA GeForce GTX 650 Ti FPS drops to 40-50 if more than two robos are on the screen. Exact extent depends on the specific holoseum being used. Gameplay is otherwise a silky smooth 60FPS. Game didn't crash once, even during the twins scene, without special configuration (i.e. Skip EFB access not enabled, and dual core enabled). I noticed a minor graphic glitch during battle - During a rebirth robos tend to run around in place for less than a second in random directions - But don't actually move. ErinsonMan
4.0.2 Windows 8.1 x64 Intel Core i5-2410M @ 2.3GHz Intel HD Graphics 3000 Needs DX11 else you will get textures missing. Works fine stable FPS. But FPS drops when doing double battles.(extra info I have 8GB RAM installed so my "GPU" gets more Memory) Warlordsander
4.0.2 Windows 7 x64 Intel Core i5-3470 AMD Radeon HD 7770 SETTINGS: config: dual core enabled, idle skipping enabled. Graphics: General: D3D11, 1080p, acpect ratio auto. Enhancements: internal resolution 4x, AA 2(quality 4), AF 1x, Scaled EFB copy, Force Texture Filtering. Hacks: Skip EFB Access from CPU, Ignore format Changes, EFB Copies=Texture, Texture Cache=Fast, External Frame Buffer Disabled, Cache display lists, OpenMP texture decoder, Fast Depth Calculation. OUTCOME: Near perfection, 60FPS almost all the time, even during 2vs2 battles, very rarely ever drops FPS very slightly for a second or 2, never during battles I don't think. No crashes, ever. This is after playing through the entire game, amazing game, highly recommended. 99.5% perfect emulation. spyder256
