Hey everyone,

Ever find the Scotland unlock code on Neo Turf Masters (Neo Geo CD version) annoying to trigger, or are you forgetful like I am and can never remember the (easy) code?

Well, I took some time to make a patch so Scotland is unlocked by default!

No longer do you have to beat all four courses in 1st place in 'Grand Slam' mode to unlock Scotland, or have to remember the secret code.
Instead, to select Scotland at the course selection screen simply hit button 'D'.

Patching instructions: First download 'turfmast_unlock_xdeltas.zip' from attachments, then see below for handling various versions with 'xdelta UI'.

Use chdman 0.229 (mame0229) to extract 'neo turf masters (1996)(snk)(jp)[big tournament golf].chd'
Then apply 'turfogchd_scotland_unlock.xdelta' on 'turfogunmodified.bin'
$ ./chdman.exe extractcd -o turfogunmodified --input ./roms/turfmast/neo\ turf\ masters\ \(1996\)\(snk\)\(jp\)\[big\ tournament\ golf\].chd
To reconstruct as CHD after patching, use this command:
$ ./chdman.exe createcd -i turfogunmodified -o turfchd

Also attached (see modified_saveram.zip) is a modified saveram file should you wish to use MAME and use that instead of a patched game image.
If you go that route, just place 'saveram' at <MAMEPATH>/nvram/neocdz/saveram.


Happy golfing!
