G'day, Long time no post.

I been doing this ROM hack project for a bit and decided to look into fixing the colour palette for the Sega Mega Drive port of Lemmings to fix the colour Palette on there to make it similar and match to the Original Commodore Amiga colour version. And It's now available to Download from ROMHacking(.)net. It's the v1.1


What I changed in the colour palette:

INTRO CUTSCENE COLOUR CHANGE
GAME TITLE SCREEN COLOUR CHANGE
CHANGE TEXT COLOUR PALETTE  TO MATCH THE AMIGA VERSION AND MAKE IT EASIER TO READ.
CHANGED THE DIRT TILE SET COLOURS
CHANGED THE PILLAR TILE SET COLOURS
CHANGED THE CRYSTALTILE SET COLOURS
CHANGED THE FIRE TILE SET COLOURS
CHANGED THE RATING CHANGE CUTSCENE COLOURS
CHANGED THE WATERMARK BACKGROUND IN THE ENDING CREDITS.


Whilst I did most of the work to do this hack. Another fellow contributor by the name of Adrian Gauna helped to correct the Level Titles on there and this is the changes he did.

1. FUN LEVEL 10: Smile if you love Lemmings
2. FUN LEVEL 26: Nightmare on Lem street
3. TRICKY LEVEL 4: Been there, seen it, done it.
4. TRICKY LEVEL 6: Lemmings in the basement ( Whilst the Original is 'Lemmings in the attic" thought would be good to do this change.)
5. TRICKY LEVEL 16: Luvly Jubly
6. TRICKY LEVEL 17: Diet Lemmingade
7. TAXING LEVEL 16: Mary Poppin's land.
8. MAYHEM LEVEL 20: No added colours or Lemmings
9. Fixed a typo in the ending credits. GRAPICHS fixed to GRAPHICS

Saying that. I DID do one Level title fix on that and that is the First Level of the game
1. FUN LEVEL 1: Just dig!

NOTE:
Since this is a IPS patch download. In order to patch this. You must patch this using the Lemmings (Europe) ROM as this was from a PAL version, Patching this using the NTSC US/JP version will not work. To patch this, You can use the program LunarIPS which can be downloaded in order to Patch this.

This is great! When I bought Lemmings for my Sega Genesis system long ago, I thought it would look like this and it turned out very different. I still liked it though. Excellent job! :thumbsup:

G'day Mobiethian.

I'm very glad to hear. :laugh: This was something I been wanting to do for sometime to change the palettes to correct them to make it similar to the Amiga. Although I did started doing this in Late 2022. But during the whole 2023 I put this project to the side. Right up until last month or so I thought it was time to get back to finishing this hack to fix up the Palette colours so that it would look way better and something that should have looked liked back in the day. :) Believe it or not originally I was only going to release it as a Colour Palette fix Hack. One Youtuber who I mentioned on my previous post here contributed his part to fix up some of the Level Titles that needed fixing, As well as Me fixing up the correction Level Title for the first level, as well as the perfect percentage rating brief as well. Thanks to him. This ROM hack has turned out better than I have anticipated. ;) I'll say this though It looks great on the Kega Fusion emulator. But it looks absolutely excellent on real hardware when I tested it out on my Sega MegaDrive II console. It really pops out.

UPDATE: I got this Hack gameplay Premiering Today at 10:00AM Australian Eastern Standard Time
