Super Puzzle Bobble was ported to the GameCube in 2002, under the name of Super Puzzle Bobble (Europe)/Bust-A-Move All-Stars (Japan), and also simply Bust-A-Move 3000. The game is a direct port, except for the inclusion of new backgrounds. It also features new box artwork, more in line with the in-game artwork. The GameCube All-Stars version has a four-player option.
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 augmented 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 . GameCube BIOS files used by Dolphin are named "IPL.bin", but may have other titles depending on their source, and should be 2,097,152 bytes in size. One exists for each major GameCube region (JP, NA, EU). The known BIOS CRC32 checksums below can be used to validate files, but variations with other checksums may exist.
