It is a fake anyway, the author, as I wrote a few posts, is limited to making montages on the video frame by frame, a hard job as he said in some forum that I can no longer find, he was criticized-made fun of even by the moderator who told him that in the end it would be easier to hack the game like that ... By the way what is a randomizer?


Yeah, you can see that the quality of the image is to high for a 4 bits color, but if he could make the assets in RGB4, that would be very cool, doubt it would be as good as those one, but it would be nice to add them even though I have no clue how to do it cause I never touched the graphics file.

Well, a randomizer builds for you an entire ROM, it decides what characters will spawn, where they will spawn, etc. FFAEE randomizer is flooding the game with enemies, so it is quite brutal for those who are not adapted to the game.

Thanks too good, I'm trying to make it a bit alternative without affecting the gameplay, now I have to find the "palettes" for the remaining characters, refine the ones already modified and I will release an ips file . I accept suggestions ... 😄
You should try and make arcade style versions of these alternate colors from Final Fight One (GBA) for Cody & Haggar:

Cody:

Haggar:

You should also try and fix up the colors a bit to make them look better on the arcade version as well.

The alternate colors you made for Guy came out great, good job! :thumbsup:

Please, can you post all colors of all characters? It might sound weird but I have never seen them, I only saw the ones for the street alpha like sprites.

Ha!Ha!HA! I was about to write something like this my Too, then I held back that maybe I would check the colors my too later: Those are unlockable colors by beating the game over and over (boredom) unless someone owns a save file. .. It is also playing this that I came up with the fact of changing the "palettes" in the Arcade ....Anyway dear SCD if you are not bored it's true I ask you too please, post them and we'll see what can be done  😊😊😊😊
That they can be seen closely ...

Thank you! Regarding your post I answer you:That's all ? Simple! I had neglected Cody and Haggar (I hardly ever use them) but I'll try, I have to find the "palettes" later, but ... Cody has a white shirt, are you sure you want it like this? Like this? https://imgur.com/a/akskLC9 And a Haggar like that?

There are ways of dealing with the Cody like kind of scenario, just look at what Grego did, the idea is to replace the white color with a light color that matches the pants, and then you have to also change the shirt's colors. Yellow is very close to lime green for example, so you can make a yellow shirt and lime green color pants. You can also make red pants with pink or beige shirt, that kind of stuff. I made several colors for all sailors in Pretty Soldier Sailor Moon and their shirt is white and it is very hard for them to not be white, and colors there are way more complicated than Final Fight, you change skirt and spoils hair, you change shirt spoils skirt, everything spoils everything, so you just have to go and think about these different colors that matches each other and use them. More examples: purple + purplish blue, green + emerald green, red + brown, orange + brown, yellow + brown, bluish white + blue, dark cyan + blue, purplish black + purple, and this list can keep going, it will only be limited by your creativity.


By the way, the blue Guy from the screenshot you posted, it is looking pretty damn good.

Tank you! About the post: You're right but, I asked him if he has the chance to color the shirt, why not do it?


Do you know how I can change these colors?

hahahaha, I believe it will be again a painful process, just like the in game sprite colors, go for the hit or miss boring thing, screenshot, grab color, search color, find one that matches that pattern of color and skin color next to each other, edit and see if you edited the correct pallete.

Sure, here they are:

Guy:

Haggar:

The Reason why I didn't post these is because Anubi 2 already made a yellow costume for Guy and Grego already made blue & green costumes for Guy and red & blue costumes for Haggar.

Thank you! Regarding your post I answer you:That's all ? Simple! I had neglected Cody and Haggar (I hardly ever use them) but I'll try, I have to find the "palettes" later, but ... Cody has a white shirt, are you sure you want it like this?
You're welcome.

Yes, that's all the suggestions I have that I would like to see in your hack.

No, you don't have to make Cody's shirt white on those alternate costumes, you can give his shirt whatever color you think will look good on them.

Thank you SCD.


Yeah, these colors are indeed similar to the ones made for FFAE. If you watched some of the videos of the CPS2 version of FFAE, you will see a black Haggar and a yellow Guy too, so the yellow one is also covered I guess.

Those GBA Cody colors, I think they have the problem Anubi 2 pointed out, they have that weird white reflection on Cody's pants, and it doesn't look good at all, it would be better to rework them.

That's great that you released the patch, I'm glad I was able to help you on some of the palette suggestions.

But which file do I need to use the patch on?

You have to patch the FFae rom with Lunar Ips a lightweight lightweight program ... Download it does not require installation, upload my file and patch the rom ...

I tried patching the ROM itself with MultiPatch, but I was getting a error for the ff-22m.7h file where it was causing game to crash.

But I figured out why it wasn't working, I used a different ffightae ROM that has less files in it, I used the correct one that has everything in it and now it works.

Sorry about that, I didn't know.

Any plans on changing the colors of the select player portraits and continue screens of all three players to match their new colors?

Speaking of the select player portraits, I noticed after applying the patch to a copy of the ROM, it causes that screen to be all buggy.

The patched ROM plays, but I always get two errors for the ff-1m.3a file.

A couple of the alternate colors looked good, I liked the dark red for Guy and the dark green for Haggar. But the others looked either too bright or pretty messy, you should try and fix them up to make them look better.

So: unfortunately I couldn't find the "Palette" for portraits and screenshots and I don't know if I will, for the buggy screen I don't know it never happened to me, for checksum errors it should be normal in fact it's a check del Mame that recognizes the altered Rom, just press "enter" and you can play, for the too bright colors I made them on purpose otherwise the characters were too similar to each other, and believe me they are ugly even darker it is a matter of habit😄😄 , for the Haggar pants and purple Andores the ones I missed, I'll fix them later if that's when I release a version 2.0😄😄😄

By the way why don't you tell me which colors are the ugliest and most messy maybe we can improve them .. 😄😄

Ok guys: I found the colors of the screen for selecting the colors of the characters, at least those of Guy .. Tomorrow I'll put them in place .. I really think there will be a 2.0😄😄 release for small portraits .. I see it tough also because sometimes if I try to change the game it crashes, if anyone can help at least in theory come forward😁😁😁

GCHT sees everything as a color, even things that are not colors, so you have to find what is color and what is not color, if you edit things that are not real colors, it might be code from the game, changing a game instruction to a random thing can lead to bugs in your ROM, so be careful about what you edit, :).

Guys two screens with the "adaptations" thanks to SCD who encouraged me, if not I would forget ... Yes, yes, I'm not stupid😁, the eyes of the White Guy do not go .. But here the game has some shared colors. . As you have noticed I change the color of the white Guy tank top and the eye color is also changed ... And if you have noticed previously also changing the color in Andore changes the color of the garbage cans, oh well, but I like the white Guy too much ... 😁😁
