Jojo's Bizarre Adventure Palette Editing Thread (How to/Show off)


#1

As the thread title says this thread is about color edits of Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure.

Now lets get on to how to do this.
(We will be using a back door method with Palmod to edit the colors)

First you’ll need Palmod.

Second you’ll to make a txt called sfiii3e (this allows us to get to those locations).

Third you need to know some locations

Copy and paste into sfiii3e.txt

Something you just noticed is that the locations are split by region this only pertains to the sprites and the character select portraits.

After that you should extract the 51 rom file from jojobane.zip and load it up in Palmod

Don’t worry if you see this

Its just loading it like a 3s rom

after that goto extra palettes (under Yun) and edit.

FAQs
Why is the palettes stored into different regions?
The main reason Capcom did this was for censoring a.k.a. keeping it a Teen rating int the west while Japan got to keep all the blood and swearing.

Is there a preview?
No. (I personally never really used it anyway for 3s.)

Why is there preview?
This game is not really supported by palmod.

This Tutorial sucks.
I’m still working on it.
