Thanks to a streamer who pointed out how harsh on the eyes the game is nowadays, I have found interest in trying to hack this particular game to give it a "dark mode", at least to text boxes and menus... But there are a number of issues I came on:
First and foremost, the fading. I can't figure how to turn the fade to/from white into a fade to/from black. Tracing it is a huge pain, and it always slips between my fingers.
Second... Some areas that used to be black are now white and vice versa. Most jarring cases:
Ideally in the first case it should be obvious what I want, but I probably need to find the specific tile it references to flip the color and achieve this:
The second case on the other hand I seek two different solutions I'll need to test through the game. First is this:
Simply have the white strip in the area where enemies tiles are rendered, so they don't stand out awkwardly. But it might mess up if any enemy leaves to the top, black, strip. Fearing this other possibility I would want the second solution:
Only text boxes becoming "dark mode" in battle.
If anyone knows what to do, wants to help, or is willing to continue from where I currently am, please hit me on PM or in here. For reference, I'm using BGB.
