Weird problem with color palettes in Final Fantasy hack
« on: August 05, 2014, 03:50:26 pm »
Hi all,

I'm having a odd problem with a hack and I'm hoping someone here has run into it before and can help.  I'm using Final Fantasy Hackster for a Final Fantasy romhack.  I want to change the color palettes of the main characters.  Now, I made the changes I wanted and the characters look good on the world map, but as soon as I enter Corneria they change to some seemingly random palette (neither my new one nor the original). 

Anyone know what's going on here?  Why are the in-town colors different than the overworld ones when they're the same in the original game?  Where did these new colors even come from?

Any help is greatly appreciated, thanks!

All of them or just the ones using a specific palette?
FF1 has a palette that changes often.

Thanks for the reply.  It's just the character palattes.  Here's pictures:

The first is the "correct" color palette which I set.  The second is what happens when I enter Corneria.

Ok, with some help from a friend of mine I think I figured it out.

There are "Control" palettes which can be changed using FFhackster's Standard Map Editor.  I changed this and now my character has the correct colors in town.
