Hi there folks, completely new to any aspect of romhacking that isn't applying patches and enjoying the great releases many of you folks have put out. I'd like to try my hand at things myself and I thought a fun way to start might be to colorize some old Game Boy games just as Metroid II and Super Mario Land have by the community. I'm leaning towards Kirby's Dream Land as my first pick.
I can't say I have any experience in programming really but I have at least done simple things in the past like hex edits and things of that nature. I guess what I'm asking for here to start is suggestions on which utilities to use to best facilitate this project. Many thanks.
