UPDATE: v1.1 is now released! Download here: http://www.romhacking.net/hacks/2990/

I recently discovered that there is an editor around for use with the Wario Land 2 rom!
So I took some of my precious time and fixed a lot of the graphical issues that the colour version of Wario Land 2 has:



Yes, I added back the beer as well. :p
As you can see, I also removed the (imo) strange recolour when wario transforms, except for Zombie Wario.

I might make some footage on my Youtube channel once I get OBS working for me again and release a .ips file so that this can be shared the legal way.:cool:

What do you guys think?

UPDATE: Here's a video!

And here's the patch: http://www.romhacking.net/hacks/2990/

Ah yes! Looks way better! If you like how Wario appeared in Wario Land 3, this is as close as it gets!
Nice! :D
Thank you! ^_^
Yes, that was my idea: Get Wario's graphics a bit closer to Wario Land 3, but not too much.
I must say though, removing wario's yellowish colour makes some enemies look a bit dull coloured, but perhaps this is because I'm very used to the original?

I really like what you're doing, but I actually like the WL2's Flaming Wario animation much more than 3's, so I would leave that animation unvhanged if i were you
Thanks for your input! It think it could have been closer to Wario Land 3, though. This is from Wario Land 3.

And yeah another problem with Wario Land 2 is that it has just 1 palette set per sprite. So Changing Wario's colour to normal also caused the flame to change to the same colour.

Here's the thing thought: i prefer the origional because it looks like Wario's entire body is on fire, like he is completly covered in fire. It's just funnier.
That is the reason why i like Wario Land 2's sprite and animation better than Wario Land 3's.
Ahh, I understand your point of view now! :) I never looked at it that way hehe, because I see those extra red pixels around his body as leftovers from the GB to GBC conversion. Much like how they forgot that one in the Puffy Wario example.

Yes, Puffy, Drunk/Crazy, Spring and Fat are all mich better in your recolored form, and they are obviosuly not well converted from (S)GB to GBC mode.
But for flaming Wario, that's just what I always saw, compared to Wario Land 3, is Wario's entire body being covered on fire.

I mean, they made new spritrs for the GBC Bees and the Pause Screen. So why coudn't they do so with the other sprites?

Oh yes, and they also changed that big alarm clock in the first level in the GBC version. I reverted that as well because in my opinion there was nothing wrong with the original design Hmm:
But I am unsure whether they intended much sprite changing for Wario himself, though. Mostly his shading was changed a lot.

Ok, I've submitted it to ROMhacking.net and that was NOT fun to do at all Grrr:
I needed to submit file urls and images, they do not support local file uploads.
