Just released Minna no Golf 6 Update version 1.05… Seems to be a stability fix rather than an update. Several problems that were bugging up the game such as lobby issues and game room issues where it would boot someone back into the menu when they aren’t synced and the solution was the player that didn’t get booted needed to restart their systems.


  • Visual Lobby Stability or Performance.
  • Game Room Stability.

Quoted swimyama’s tweet since I’m probably not going to bother posting at the moment… 😛

The servers are still in maintenance, however the 1.04 patch is now live for download from the Live Area… It is 93MB in size and takes less than five minutes to download on a good connection.

Other than the previously mentioned changes for 1.04 there were a few small details outlined in this update:

  • New Lobby Parts for Grade Tournaments Added.
  • New Lobby Action for Different Grades.
  • Display Trajectory during Real Tournaments.
  • Access the  Prize King Ranking from the Main Menu.
  • Real Tournament Score Bug Display Fixed.
  • VTR Replay Bug Fixed.
  • Other Bug Fixes… [Al Arabian 17H Training Access?]

When you join the lobby after the new patch you will see this new screen outlining the new Grade Tours and Game Room creation availability…

Accessing the Daily Tournaments after the patch will give you this new screen detailing the new weekly system. Mondays there are no tours and are for result announcing…

There is a new interface for the Daily Menu.


It looks like one of the small bugs they fixed was the error that occurs loading up Al Arabian 17H in Training.

Until the servers are back up this is it for now… I cannot confirm the rest of the details. Anyone who has a broken VTR shot should try see if it now replays correctly. 😛

More details have been released over at the Official Mingol 6 Players Information Site…

Daily Tournament System Additions

「デイリー全国大会」モード ツアー制

Daily Tournament Profile Recording… It will display your participation count, Tour Points, Average Rank, Win Ratio, Weekly Tour Points, Wins, Seconds, Top 100, Top 10%, Top 20% and Special Rank Count.

New Lobby Character Actions


New Actions for the Lobby Character including object interaction… You can break objects…?


Looks like the other is a back flipping jump?

Final Daily Tournament Bonus Tour Points

The Dailies on May 5th will be the last to include the bonus points so for the last time everyone will have a chance to increase their Daily Rank before the server is reset. Tours are scheduled already as:

  • No.417: La ProvinceResort
  • No.418: Al Arabian Golf Club
  • No.419: Maple Leaf Golf Club

Good Luck Everyone!

The long awaited Minna no Golf 6 update version 1.04 will be coming next week on May 7th… The update will include:

  • Grade System Real Tournaments.
  • Online Game Room Creation.
  • Daily Tournament Format Change.
Grade Tournaments

Those familiar with Minna no Golf Online will be right at home with the Grade System of Real Tournaments.

『みんなのGOLF 6』Ver1.04/リアル大会/グレード表彰.bmp

Complete and advance to the next grade to compete with the strongest golfers in your grade… If things don’t work out you’ll just drop back to the previous grade.

Game Room Creation

『みんなのGOLF 6』Ver1.04/対戦部屋/エントリー.bmp

Create Real Tournament Game Rooms with support of up to 8 players per room… Practice with your friends and have a great time without worrying about messing up a good score.

Create a Stroke or Match Game Room where you and your friend can play together and watch each other play. Stroke will only support 2 players though… Voice chat is available in Game Rooms.

You can create rooms and set two rules, game speed, handicap, entry restrictions and a owner message.

Entry restrictions now also allow a Password Only restriction, I will probably be using that quite a bit…

Daily Tournament Format Change

『みんなのGOLF 6』Ver1.04/デイリー全国大会/大会参加.bmp

The format of the current Daily System is that there is three tournaments per day with the results given at the next day… The new format will now follow more closely to a professional golf tournament system, where everyday you compete in one tour and the results are given out at the start of the next week.

So there will now be one tour per day from Tuesday to Sunday and the results for the Weekly Champion is given out on Monday. You will still receive a Daily Result but your Tour Points for the week will determine if you were the Champion of that Week.

『みんなのGOLF 6』Ver1.04/デイリー全国大会/ツアー表彰2.jpg

Special results screens are displayed for players who roll on good numbers… Such as Top 10, 1000, 10,000 or 7,777 etc.

Update Schedule

Version 1.04 will be arriving next Monday May 7th from 10:00 ~ 15:00 Japan Server Time.

A little delayed here as I was unable to post while rushing from gate to gate and mid flight haha… Anyway May 5th marks the last Minna no Golf 6 Daily for the First Season. The 1.04 patch should follow shortly after as previously mentioned in earlier news. In other news this weekend is probably the last Bonus Point Special Daily Tournaments.

Saw this on the PlayStation Blog earlier but was out so didn’t bother posting it… It is also on discount if you already have PlayStation Plus subscription… This is out a lot earlier than I expected so I doubt there was any bug fixing or updates involved in changing the game for the better. 🙁

Looks like there will be an extreme maintenance happening on the April 26th from 9:00 to 16:00 Japan Server time…

During this time you will not be able to log into the servers or lobby so if you want to do your daily tournaments, make sure you updated the tournament list before they go into maintenance.

Though this book has been out for awhile, I had my friend pick me up a copy when I found that it has lobby parts to redeem. Also might as well have a look at why competition got tough after this guide book was released…

Though there wasn’t much special information gained for me, it is interesting to see the course guide inside. To me it looks like it shows how to safely approach holes using clubs that allow safer impact zone approaches. Which might explain why everyone else was scoring better after the book was released in Japan.

Most other information is covered by the in-game loading screens and so there isn’t much to know if you’ve already completed the game. One key information that I thought everyone else would enjoy knowing about is the requirements for Mr. Mingol. All you need for your course scores are…

18H Regular Tee Courses: -22, -20, -18, -16, -14, -12.
18H Back Tee Courses: -18, -16, -14, -12, -10, -8.

Looks quite simple then doesn’t it? There is no mention of requirements such as hitting an Albatross or Ace… So it is safe to assume just completing the 12 courses and hitting this minimum amount will give you the Mr. Mingol Rank.

I haven’t claimed the lobby parts as you have to cut open the section in the book to reveal the download code… 🙁

So the results are in after some insane Godly rounds… I received 162 Tour Points today for yesterday’s games… Placing in First Place gave me 70, 4th gave me 52 and Top 20% was 40 Tour Points.

Satsuki hasn’t won a Daily Tour for awhile, I mean sure Yuna has but that was Novice Only…

With the insane bonus Tour Points the boost is huge… Went up a huge gap of what would usually take me weeks to climb.

And so now I sit on the same page as my friend swimyama2 and teppen33… 😀

The goal is to get to 7th before the reset… then I’ll probably sit out for next season to work on other things.
