Hello, everyone. I'm new to Rom Hacking so I apologize if this is a very simple question to answer.

But I was wondering what sort of coding triggers a Palette Swap upon an Item pickup? (Think Mario obtaining a Fire Flower or Samus picking up the Varia Suit)

I assume the actual Item Pickup triggers some kind of code to change the sprite to a new color (or entirely new sprite shape and size like Mario obtaining the Super Mushroom)

If someone could help me answer this and find a utility to edit, I'd be very appreciative. All the editors I've found are mostly for maps and the actual player sprite layout itself. (For reference, I'm trying to make it so grabbing the Blue Ring in Zelda will change the Palette to a darker blue, much like the Item Itself.)

Again, I'm an absolute newbie when it comes to this. Thanks.
