As much as I like the turbo custom colors I really miss to have the option to play the turbo/new characters with their original colors, specially for ryu, ken, blanka and dictator. The rest of the characters have custom colors close enough to the originals.
There is a not very practical trick you can do to solve that http://combovid.com/?p=1450 (section “selecting original colors”) but I went and modified the rom myself which is pretty straightforward to do with the software palmod. I would like to share the hacked rom with the community but I don’t have any idea how to do it without doing too much illegal stuff. Any ideas are welcome.
In any case, I created two roms: one where you can choose turbo/new characters with the old colors and another one where everyone has the old colors including the characters controlled by the CPU. Speaking of colors, Ryu doesn’t look bad with the Akuma palette
