SMA4 Game Boy Player/SNES Palette Hack

Hack of Super Mario Advance 4: Super Mario Bros. 3

Description:

Unlike the other palette hacks for GBA games, where hackers had to put in the time and dedication to restore the original SNES palettes, Super Mario Bros. 3 actually already includes the original palette, which is enabled when playing on a Game Boy Player. This hack simply forces the GBP palette to be used at all times.

Finally, the SMA Tetralogy in its full coloured glory!

Reviewed By: ShadowOne333 on 13 Feb 2017

At long last, all four Super Mario Advance games now have proper colour restorations!

Who could have thought the game had the original palette in there already? It never crossed my mind when I thought about such restoration.

Vague Rant did an amazing job at finding that out, and now, thanks to him, we can enjoy all four SMA games without washed out colors!

If you want a much more faithful experience to All-Stars, combine this patch with the Voice Removal patch by mangaman3000, you won’t regret it, and it’s also compatible with the All 38 e-Reader Levels hack!

Thanks for this work!
