COLORIZE WARIO LAND: SUPER MARIO LAND 3
« on: September 13, 2016, 10:53:41 pm »
I want to upgrade the game from a Game Boy game to a Game Boy Color game, the same way Wario Land II was upgraded. I have NO CLUE on how to do this, but if anyone does, I will gladly offer my time to do the spritework/palette assignments for you. This will probably never happen, but if it does, get back to me.

If you really want it done, you should try and learn some ASM. You can find a LOT of GB documentation online, and even though it doesn't look feasible at first, anyone with a bit of perseverance can do it.

I'd recommend this videos for a first contact with the theory:

Then you, you can learn a bit of GB ASM and maybe play a bit with BGB's, changing things here and there.

Once you are familiar with ASM, you can get right into the documentation:

http://bgb.bircd.org/pandocs.htm

It's best if you start with something simpler, but you'd be surprised with how quickly you can have the required knowledge for a hack like that.
