Mario Party 4 (マリオパーティ) is the fourth installment in the Mario Party series and the first to be released for the Nintendo GameCube. The game features eight playable characters from the Mario series, who can be directed on six themed game boards in the game. The objective of the game is to earn as many stars as possible, which are obtained by purchase from predefined space on the game board, or by bonuses. Each character's movement is determined by a roll of a die, with a roll from each player forming a single turn. Each turn in Mario Party 4 is followed by a mini-game, which is competed to earn money for the character, used to buy items and stars.

Problems

Trace Race Crayon Doesn't Draw

If you play Trace Race with Texture Cache set to Fast or Medium, the crayon won't draw right away, lagging behind your movements. While this doesn't break the game's scoring, it can be quite disorienting. To fix this, set the Texture Cache slider to "safe". Refer issue 10705.

Enhancements

Distorted Text Boxes

The texture for the text backdrop will become heavily distorted if anisotropic filtering or "Force Texture Filtering" are enabled.

16:9 Widescreen Gecko Code

The built-in Widescreen Hack causes various indirect texture and clipping issues. The following Gecko code works as a replacement, causing fewer issues. To avoid conflicts, make sure that Widescreen Hack is disabled while using this code.
