Breath of Fire 2 GBA Palette Hack

Hack of Breath of Fire II

Description:

A few years back a guy named Lord Asaki released a Super Mario World palette hack, which made me realize that there were lots of other GBA games that had awful awful colours. Breath of Fire 1/2 were some of the worst offenders, as were any of the Blizzard ports.

Fast forward to today, ludmeister’s Breath of Fresh Fire 2 patch gets posted, and I realize that others might be interested in the work I did.

So here is a small patch that restores the full SNES palette to Breath of Fire 2 on the GBA. There are a few GBA unique screens that I didn’t bother to change as they didn’t look that bad, and I also tweaked the battle/text boxes to look more consistent with the style of the game (no more ugly gradients). The game is still horribly flawed by how easy it was changed to be for the GBA, but I hope that this patch will at least make it a little easier on the eyes.
