Title: Can't find some palettes in Aladdin (NES)
Post by: macbee on November 08, 2014, 08:51:41 AM
Hi,
I'm changing some graphics and colors in Aladdin (the pirate version made for NES, called "Aladdin (Unl) [p1][hM04]").
I was able to change all colors I wanted - until now. I simply can't find the palettes for the first Game Over screen. This one:

Any help to locate the address for the palettes on this screen is welcome.
Thanks in advance,
Macbee

Don't work?

Nope. :(
I'm able to change colors from other screens - but no sign of the ones from Game Over/Continue.
I enter their values on hex editors but nothing happens.
Thanks for your help anyway.

Try not to look for the entire sequence, but only the first 5 bytes. Then the next 5 bytes. Sometimes the colors are flashing (change), so they are hard to find.

For really small sections of data, like palettes, the code might just have it hardcoded in the instructions to upload it.

Thanks for all replies but I guess this is really beyond my knowledge.
Strangely all palettes for Alladin are very easy to locate from the beginning to the end - EXCEPT this one from Game Over screen. :(
