Color Restoration Patch

Hack of Final Fantasy VI Advance

Description:

To accommodate for the undersized, relatively dark monitor of the Game Boy Advance, a variety of colors in Final Fantasy VI Advance exhibit a higher degree of saturation than that of the earlier versions. Consequently, the graphics generally appear brighter, and certain colors diverge significantly from their original specifications. As such, the purpose of this patch, which supports all three versions, is to restore the colors to their former state.

A more detailed description is contained within the document bundled with the release. In addition, a collection of images designed to provide a basis for comparison can be found at the author’s site.

Look at the colors on that one

Reviewed By: Spooniest on 04 Jun 2012

This well-done patch is a wonderful companion to Bregalad’s Sound Restoration patch. It does exactly what it says it does; the palette of the SNES version is restored, making Final Fantasy VI Advance appear (spectrally, at any rate) to be the same as the SNES version.

I do understand that the original port’s palette was necessary for the game to be visible on dark GBA screens, but when stuck in an emulator, it just makes the whole thing look gaudy and loud. The subtlety, the character of the SNES version is back in place with this hack, so by all means, go ahead and look at the pretty colors.
