Change the palettes [not colors!]

Post by levellord »

A keen 3 version of the Keen 2 'change the palettes for fading in/out In fact, I did all 3 [Note the Keen 1 patch is compatible with the colorchanging patch avalible]

To see what colors turn into what, just look at the last palette, then move upwards. For example $03 in the bottom patch [dark teal] turns straight to black]

Note that as well as a custom palette for 'lights off' it is also possible to make the fade in and fade out palettes different. If anyone wants this kind of patch, just ask.

Code: Select all

#Keen 1:

#Change the palette colours; there are 4 default palettes, you can create and use
#a new pallette for the lights off, or four new palettes for fading in/out
#[fade in/out and lights defualt use the same palettes] the last value is the
#Border color used with the palette
#Colors as follows: $1F, white; $1E, yellow; $19, light purple; $1C, light red; 
#                   $1B, light teal; $1A, light green; $19, light blue; $19, light green
#                   $07, light grey; $06, brown; $05, dark purple; $04, dark red
#                   $03, dark teal; $02 dark green; $01, dark grey  $00, black

Silly me! Forgot the palette the vortico reporters use when snapshotting Keen!

EDIT: Made 2 mistakes, one with a palettes location, another about where the palette is read from.

However, due to a request by stealthy I have looked up where all the palettes are read from. Firstly, what values used for each palette:

Code: Select all

#Palette values:
# $52 $28 Vorticon press taking pictures [Lighter]
# $97 $25 Normal
# $86 $25 Light fade
# $75 $25 Dark fade [lightswitch off]
# $64 $25 Pitch black
# $04 $00 Custom palette [If you have one]
Now where the palettes are read from. You can use the above values in these locations to do a number of interesting things, such as get rid of those pesky fadein/outs or make the lightswitch make things *brighter*

Code: Select all

#Normal palette, [used for menu, levels, etc]
%patch $2E29 $97 $25

#Fadeout/in When fading out the palettes used are 'normal' 'light' 'dark' and black
#When fading in *from* black,olny one is used 'dark'
#Lightest fade color [Same as 'normal' used at start of fadeOUT]
%patch $2E42 $97 $25
#Light fade [2nd palette in fadeout]
%patch $2E56 $86 $25
#Dark fade [3rd color in fadeout]
%patch $2E6A $52 $28

#Dark fade color [2nd color in fadeIN]
%patch $2E15 $64 $25

#Vorticon press taking pictures [Bright flash]
%patch $5A15  $52 $28 
#After vorticon press take picutres.
%patch $5A44 $97 $25

#When lights are switched OFF
%patch $6C6C $75 $25
#When lights are turned ON
%patch $6C4D $97 $25
Finally, how long that fadein/out lasts:

Code: Select all

#How long each palette lasts in fade in/out:
%patch $2E1D $08 $00 #Fade *in* dark

%patch $2E4A $08 $00 #'Normal'
%patch $2E5E $08 $00 #Light fade
%patch $2E72 $08 $00 #Dark fade
%patch $2E09 $08 $00 #Black
Enjoy!
