Mother 1 Color Restoration

Hack of Mother 1+2

Description:

As some of you may know, a lot of GBA games have brightened, washed out colors in order to make it easier to see on an unlit GBA. This is a patch for *Mother 1+2* for GBA that restores the colors back to what they were on NES (for Mother 1 only, the Mother 2 side of the ROM is untouched).

Several patches were made because there are no true NES colors due to the way it handles colors. NES games don’t have any palette data, they just have ‘color assignments’ choosing from the NES’s 64 different color ’slots’. But the way these colors appear can be different from one TV to another, whether it’s between NTSC and PAL, or RF/AV cables… so really there are no ‘true’ NES palettes. That is why several patches were made, one that looks very close to an NTSC signal (palette called “Smooth(FBX) by FirebrandX), one based off the color palette that Nintendo uses for their NES Virtual Console titles, and another based off the palette used by the NES Classic Edition.

These patches can be used in conjunction to any of the translation patches out there. You can patch it to a clean ROM (which means you’ll play it in Japanese), or you can patch it to an already-patched translated ROM, either way it doesn’t matter, as the only data these patches touch is the 64 colors that the game uses as its palette data.

There are also included patches to allow the game to boot straight to Mother 1, and another to remove the splash screen if you’re already using Mato’s translation patch (the purpose being to create a standalone Mother 1 for GBA, as Mato’s splash screen references Mother 2 hacking which would be irrelevant in this case)
