Kururin Squash! is an action-puzzle video game developed by Eighting and published by Nintendo. It was released only in Japan on October 14, 2004. The game is the successor to Kururin Paradise and is the only title of the Kururin series to use 3D computer graphics.

Emulation Information

Garbage Text

The game will show garbage text rather than Japanese by default, to fix this simply tick the box under Config > Display that says "Set Console to NTSC-J"

Improper GameCube Font

Due to copyright concerns, Dolphin is unable to include official GameCube fonts, and instead uses Droid Sans. Unfortunately, Droid Sans does not align well with the size/kerning of the official GameCube font, which can cause text to be misplaced, dialogs to display improperly, and other issues due to differing text sizes.

This can be corrected by including a region appropriate GameCube IPL (i.e. BIOS ROM) under <Dolphin User Folder>/GC/. A GameCube "IPL.bin" can be acquired from a real GameCube using Swiss. Refer issue 8362. GameCube BIOS files need to be named "IPL.bin" in order for Dolphin to detect them, and should be 2,097,152 bytes in size. IPL files are different for PAL consoles and NTSC consoles, but American NTSC consoles use the same IPL files as Japanese NTSC consoles. The known good CRC32 checksums below can be used to validate files, but it is possible that a bad dump with a different checksum also works.

v1.0 6DAC1F2A 4F319F43
v1.1 D5E6FEEA 667D0B64
v1.2 86573808 AD1B7F16

GBA Link Support

This game has GBA Link features that are properly emulated using VBA-M and Dolphin.


Template:SSound Issues and FreezesTemplate:/s

Sound desynchs frequently on HLE causing the game to often crash, the music looping incorrectly, with instruments missing, or garbage sound effects randomly playing. Despite these issues, the game can be finished. Presumed to be fixed by HLE emulation revisions.
