Update By: Greenandacat

Kirby's Dream Land for the Original Gameboy has been updated to support color! Play the 28-year-old classic in a whole new light on your Gameboy Color. In addition, areas with lots of enemies that would previously lag the game have been fixed to run at full speed. No other changes have been made, so you can play the original the exact way you remember it.

OMG this looks great.'  I can't wait for a Kirby's 2 color.

Am going to try this one out.'

I'm also a bit surprised nobody has colored in Super mario land 3 - wario land.
I really am waiting for that also.

I made a small update to the colourization hack of my own.
Here's what my hack of Kirby Dream Land DX does:

I made a small update to the colourization hack of my own.
Here's what my hack of Kirby Dream Land DX does:
  • Restores the official copyright text in the title screen
  • Modifies the floating Kirby sprite at the Title screen to not look as derpy. I added a bit of shading to the sprite, and I also modified the default pink colour used for the title screen to match the pink used in-game
  • Modified the HUD graphics so the small Kirby icon now shares the colours of Kirby in-game

If anyone wants to try it out, here's the link for it:
http://www.bwass.org/bucket/Kirby_Dream_Land_DX_v2.ips

I love the work you did to the color hack. It improves the hack a lot. I would suggest though moving the ips from bwass.org to somewhere else. Malwarebytes doesn't seem to like the site and flags it as having a trojan.

I could do that, yeah.
Or maybe as a side hack for it.
Although I'm not sure if the original dev of the DX version would be okay with me doing that or not.
I really don't want to submit the hack, have its page ready and all, only for the dev to strike it with a non-compliant request, even if I credit the original creator properly (since a lot of hackers seem to do that even when credited properly).

Thanks for the addendum patch, ShadowOne333. Should this be stacked over the original patch? I'll probably test it in some hours.

Oh I see.
Although, I still don't understand why that user says that Archive.org deleted it.
I can still download it from the original Bwass link, and the Archive.org link you posted I can access as well.

As for other patches not available mmmmm...
I can think of a handful, but mostly because of dubious reasons.

Anyway, it's good to know there's that way of handling unhosted previous patches. :)

Hi, I know I'm not the first, but I couldn't help but ask, is there a tutorial to learn how to color gameboy games? I am really interested in learning, I know it is not as simple as it sounds, and I have basic notions of how it works but I am not really oriented. if anyone could help me. I could start by coloring the first Wario land and then Megaman V. Greetings to all.

I would second this tutorial, I would also love to colorize Mega Man V, and other games like Kirbys Dreamland 2, Donkey Kong 94, Super Mario Land 3: Warioland, etc.

Due to the demand, I have decided to make an Addendum page for the small hack I did of KDL DX.
It's on queue right now, so it should be up in a few hours!

Just finished a quick playthrough in Goomba Color, the only problem I found was after beating Dedede and the cutscene where Kirby flies off with the castle, I get a blank white screen for the credits.  After the credits roll the rest of the cutscene and the Extra Mode screen shows up fine.  Didn't try Extra Mode.  I know Goomba Color's not the most accurate emulator, so you might want to double-check.

Tried in bgb and credits are okay. Working on a bugfix idea for black transitions (those brief frames which flicker white). And maybe also want to change how palettes are loaded, make it simpler for others to edit. Plus I noticed 2 rows of BG colors are not used; maybe use those to color Kirby pink (ending balloon, sound mode).

But I fantasize too much atm. Bugfixes first.

@Rushiomatsu has an idea to change hud color. I will let author mention further about hack.

KDL DX also has a soft reset bug: double speed is turned off.

Fading patch is good except for credits - white bg on SameBoy.

I think you should fix ending also - mono gb looks like night time with full moon but color looks like sunrise or sunset (white sky is problem).

Rushiomatsu found a minor bug with black_fade patch: not often sometimes items will (partially) disappear (vram timing). Unfortunately palette code is recycled heavily and fixing will be bothersome and take some thought.

This also has side-effects ffor ew things left I'd want to colorize.


Missing flashing effects would be genuinely hard to repair - mono cycles cleverly between 2 palettes which we don't have luxury. It'd take ... choosing sprite palettes per room as I'm assuming items, enemies, Kirby likely share some swatches.

September 19, 2021, 01:51:41 pm - (Auto Merged - Double Posts are not allowed before 7 days.)
It could be possible to cycle 0 and 1/3/4/5/7, a compromise flashing effect. Although I'm unaware how color flashing looks in other Kirby games. I'll try creating a demo sometime if I can figure it out.

Power-ups and waddles also share default Kirby palette. I'm unsure which ones can use different palette flashers.


Lolo and Lala boss fight fading technique is cruel (for color hack).

September 20, 2021, 02:55:57 pm - (Auto Merged - Double Posts are not allowed before 7 days.)
After lots of testing, ended up with palette #1.

Flashing is fixed -- Kirby, 1-Up, Star, Waddle Doo, Whizzer, Scarfy. Not Lololo / Lalala fading yet .. that's trickier.

I want to fix a Kracko eye sprite error and merge it into recolor_sprites.

I'll make another batch post when ready.

Given my lack of time, it's going to be delayed. And the last 5% or so is the hardest part; redesigning everything to make it fit and play nicely.


I do have a plan worked out though to finally give me some satisfaction of fixing this game.

Now I see... The game uses the same BG and OBJ palettes for the entire game. Why don't we make it so every stage has its own colors?

That'd be pretty neat :P
Actually the whole Dream Land levels got remade in both Kirby Super Star (SNES) and Kirby Super Star Ultra (DS), so maybe those could be used for reference for the colors of the levels.
I think the most complete recreation of Dream Land would be a combination of all the levels in Spring Breeze in Super Star:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KdbeMEsEMNU

Alongside the Stage 4 from Revenge of the King from Super Star Ultra (Basically a Hard mode of Spring Breeze with an extra level added):

Still going through the rewrite phase as most of the patches are interlinked and require each other now; remaining (new) bugs are being discovered and fixed still.

Lolo fading effect (almost) works plus I've noticed a scrolling glitch in the credits (original game too).

Last problem is replacing the colors I swapped out, in a more efficient method. And maybe a few more minor color fixes.

Then release what I have and call it a day.
_______________________________________________


I won't be the one picking the colors for each stage. Or changing all the tilemaps / sprites. Or volunteering (other than some technical discussion if needed). :)
(Going to require a lot of inhal / exhal usage)


Note some OBJ colors are reserved every room:
- 0 = Kirby (pink, red)
- 1 = Stars (off-yellow) (can be switched around with #5 likely)
- 4 = Curry, Fireball (peach / off-orange + red)
- 5 = Blocks (yellow)
- 7 = Spikes, Cannons, Bombs, Smoke, Air (white, grey)


Which leaves ..
- 1 = color #2
- 2 = various enemies
- 3 = various enemies
- 4 = a few enemies
- 5 = a few enemies
- 6 = leaf, water (only several rooms use this)


BG0-6 = generally white/black are reserved

BG7 = reserved for hud
-- EDIT: Use LYC irq. If hud on, swap palette. Then all 8 palettes can be used for stage.


EDIT:
If one was going to swap out full palettes per stage, I'd do it after 6:4302, which turns off screen. Tiles are sent to vram after this and you have full time to do what you want.

Shopping cart:
I wanted to fix Kirby ending balloon (pink), music test (pink), ending sky (yellow) but either I'll let them go or give them some time.


I'll probably create a Service Repair for mono GB also
- Credits mountain
- Credits scroll
- Black fade

Original game doesn't have credits scroll problem (just dx).

I've decided to leave rest of game alone for various design reasons or limited hardware palette.

3) Fixed post-credits fade effect


Which means I'm finally done repairing DX for now. Per some requests, I'm uploading to rhdn since some want Revised and some don't ..

I just grabbed the patch from your github and I played it. Superb work, minucce!

Only thing I could notice is this (the black pixel on Kracko's door):

But it's also a thing on the original, so not the colorization's fault:

Again, good work and best of luck on future projects!  :thumbsup:

Nice catch!

(safe to apply on previous patch)

Someone asked if I could add the KDL2 sgb border (tiles only) to KDL1. Worth a try I suppose.

And an (add-on patch) request to keep the filled hud icon from Revised. Fair enough.

And upgrade the readme because it's confusing about patch order, crc, *sigh*

Plus someone encountered a *rare* tile corruption bug. Fixed that (8.3) but pushing to 8.4 now.

Rushiomatsu provided a SGB design based on Star Stacker

So we're at 9.0 now
