Green text colors + something else

Post by szemigi » Thu Sep 26, 2019 8:19 am

Well, I want this text to be light green:

'Arrow Keys Move / Escape Exits' (In the help menu this appears.)

(Press F1 for Help, Warning. If you do this, you'll abort the current game, This Item is Disabled texts are red as originally.)


The other patch would be: 'Press F1 for Help' never appears when you idle in the main menu.

The second patch was quite easy, I don't know about the first but I'll give it a look alter.

Code: Select all

#Don't display red 'Press F1' text when idling in menu
%patch $16875 $EB

I also have patches for how long it takes the text to appear and what colors it flashes, but this doesn't yet affect the test you wanted changed.

Code: Select all

#Press F1 text
%patch $168A8  $5C4FW #Text called from
%patch $296BD "Press F1 for Help" $00

#Time before text displays
%patch $1687B $02BCW

#Idle text colors
%patch $168A6 $03 #Color 1 (Red)
%patch $168B5 $0F #Color 2 (Black)

This patch changes the color of the help text footer:

Code: Select all

#Help text footer now green
%patch $1561D $05

I can now change the color of most other red text in the menu too, those patches will be added to the wiki.
