Hey everyone! I need a little help with a personal project, if anyone would be willing to give me a couple of pointers in the right direction, I'd really appreciate it!
I'm working on a small modification for the game Zombies Ate My Neighbors (SNES). When I was a kid, I used to play this game on the Genesis whenever we'd visit extended family in the summer. I loved it, played through every level with my cousins.
Last week I came across the SNES version at a resale shop, and on a whim I bought it. Now it's generally believed the SNES version is the superior version of the two; the graphics aren't compressed like they are on the GEN, colors are more robust, audio is much fuller, etc etc. BUT one of the first things I noticed upon booting up the game is that the red blood GAME OVER screen that I had become so fond of in the GEN version had been censored and replaced with purple ooze, which, for some reason, is driving me crazy!GENESIS GAME OVER SCREENCENSORED SNES GAME OVER SCREEN
At first I thought it was gonna be as simple as changing the palette, but after replacing the colors using this palette editor
, the changes only appear with a portion
of the game over screen:
The droplets that successfully changed over 'drip' at a faster speed than the rest of the game over screen, so I'm assuming that they're their own objects and in a separate place entirely from the GAME OVER screen. I've tried replacing every instance of the purple color I can find in the palette editor, but to no avail. The only possibility I can think of is that it's compressed somewhere with the graphics, but to be honest I am a little stumped. Which is what led me here, to this forum. I am looking for help! If anyone would be willing to give me an idea on my next step, I'd greatly appreciate it!
