lol so I read all the other posts and seriously? No one knows if you can use something aside from photoshop, loading that palette is all I need to do...

(side note: there is something called Paint.net is works kinda like photoshop [its free use] but doesn't have the load palette thing)

Very helpfull tut, but problem is I have Paintshop pro 7 (psp7), and I can't figure out how to load the color palette... Well, I loaded it, but it didn't apply to the picture automatically like it said it would.. Any help with this?
Heres what I did:
1. Loaded rom and saved color palette like explained, but psp7 only reads .pal so I saved it as that.
2. I have the greyscale pic exported and saved and opened in psp7, looks like it should.
3. Went to Colors, load palette, and loaded the saved .pal and it sais it will apply color, click yes to continue and nothing changes.


Thanks

I don't know how to do it on any other program but Photoshop. Also, just google Photoshop Portable. Something might come up.

OK so I finally got this all to work. (You definately need PS to get those palettes right and if anyone is having any other trouble doing it when you load the original Black and White Indexed image Go to [Image]>[Mode]>[Color Table..] and save the pallette for it because just clicking greyscale may unindex the image or just not give you the proper colors.


Now, my problem: EDIT: Doesn't really mater Because I fixed it.

I tried this, and it doesn't work for me... :/

I get the right image, but the palette is all messed up. It doesn't import completely correctly.

Does anyone know where I can find the font to make a logo? Also, I found a way you can do this without Photoshop, but its very tedious. You have to open the image from UNLZ in Paint and open your custom logo in the same window. Then use the dropper tool to take the colors from the "Fire Red Version" and the bucket fill to recolor your logo accordingly. Takes a bit of time, and maybe a few tries, but it works. Once I find the actual text I'll have to do that again. Ugh, stupid Photoshop.

When you're tile mapping the logo what number/letter do you set it to on the logo?

It seems like you are talking about the palette map. If that's the case, everything is zero.

Thanks but I meant when you're moving the Pokemon logo from the side to the middle.

Not at all,only Photoshop can view the pallet file for the logo hence why the author use a .act,though you can download Photoshop illegally,I won't go into detail as how you can download it just search yourself.

Hi everyone. I have changed my titlescreen but still there is flames in the background which appears through tiny holes in my titlescreen as if the titlescreen is made of a thin cloth and sunlight coming from other side. Also plz someone help me to index a sprite as I want to have my own devian arrested pokemon spite in place of hazard. Also there is a nasty small patch in left side bottom of my titlescreen. If someone could plz help me to create a neat clean titlescreen. Thanx to all...

Uncheck "Auto abort if new data is bigger", check "Automaticly fix pointers" and write your offset of confidence in "Image Offset".

Try from 2000 up to 2015 (+/- 20) and you'll find it, also dont forget to use "256 Color Mode".
