Ever since I began working on Neo Mario Galaxy I was wondering what there is to the leftovers of the GoldenTurtle object from Super Mario Galaxy 1. You may not know what I'm talking about, but it's actually the golden shell required to open the golden treasure chest in Bigmouth Galaxy. Anyway, I have found out that all the functions and its virtual table are still in the game. The only thing that was removed is the creation method for the actual object. It wasn't difficult to recreate it, but the results are very impressive:

Above is the download link. You can find detailed instructions on setting the patch up in readme.txt. Don't forget to credit me. Happy hacking!

Great achievement man! Was sure difficult to figure out.

Do the properties of a respawned shell really distinguish from the initial shell?

And a recent discovery showed that the ASM patch is pointless. If a JetTurtle's obj_arg0 is set to 2 it will spawn the golden shell IF the model exists as well... So guys, if you want to use this, just add the model file from SMG1 and you're fine...

While that is true, the shells can't be used to open golden treasure chests...weird.

EDIT: The patch is now available for anyone to use:
