It was always a pet peeve of mine that only like five bosses in FE6 had their own color palettes, and everyone else used generic enemy colors. For all four of you out there who have always wanted this, your dream is now a reality.

There are palettes in the game itself for a few early bosses (Damas, Ruud, Slater, Erik, Dory and Debias), but in a display of sheer brilliance by the developers, they're assigned to the characters' promoted versions (which, of course, are never seen, as they're all unpromoted bosses when fought). This small mod properly implements those palettes and adds some original ones for bosses that don't have any.

For those who play with animations off, this mod also replaces the earlygame music that inexplicably returns in chapters 15, 16 and 17A. Chapters 15 and 16 now have the Western Isles music, and chapter 17A has the Ilia / Sacae music.

This mod makes no changes to the gameplay.

Apply the patch to a clean FE6 ROM with NUPS or a similar program.

Other than that, please let me know if the mod breaks horribly or if I've missed a palette somewhere or anything else. This is my first (and probably only) mod, and while I'm fairly certain that it should work well, I haven't played through the entire game.

EDIT: I've updated the patch, for all four of you out there who care about it! I wasn't satisfied with the palettes I made. They felt a little too dark and dim, compared to FE6's bright, high-contrast palettes. I've remade all of them, comparing them to ingame palettes to try and make them as faithful to the game's style as possible. If you liked the old ones better, though, the first patch is still up for download.

EDIT: Third update! I'm hoping this is the last one. I've made some minor changes to a few of the palettes, and added one for Scollan, after I discovered that Slater and Debias's palettes are identical, so I could use one of their slots for Scollan. Now the only boss that could use a personal palette is Maggie. I've played around with a few ideas, but I can't really think of anything, so the brown outline will stay. Eh, I think it's a pretty good result.

Version 1

Version 2

NOTES:

- Due to space limitations, Sigune and Guerrero use palettes belonging to playable units (Shanna and Garret, respectively). They suit them very well.

- Wagner and Peres have the same palette, as do Erik and Roberts and Kel and Maggie. For the first two pairs, this doesn't cause any problems, but Maggie's sprite has some very minor glitches. Nothing too horrible or distracting, and the palette fits his portrait otherwise.

Hey, all four of you who are following the patch! Is it too pretentious to believe that there's four? Well, in any case, the patch has been updated. Check the OP for the new download link, and details on the new version, as well as shiny new pictures!

Not sure I could fit 80~ more portraits into the game, to be honest. But it'd be neat.

Anyway, third update! Check the OP for details and links!

One patch to rule them all... now you only need to make a hack my man (also I'm actually confused as to why you chose Windham instead of Oro for a screenshot, or why you didn't include Morgan). Btw, there's four of us counting yourself so far.

Hah! Thanks, man. I wouldn't go that far, but I appreciate the kind words. This was meant for personal use first and foremost, but I figured, if just a couple of people out there would want to use it, I might as well release it.

As for a full-blown hack, well... I do dream of making my own videogame, someday. One day, perhaps...

I didn't want to waste too much time getting screenshots, so I just grabbed some of my old savestates from my LP and rushed a unit to the boss of each chapter I could access. Orlo and Morgan would've both taken too long to get to, I would've had to beat full chapters to get to them (hence, Zinque and Nord instead of them). Would've wanted to show those two off, honestly, I like their palettes, but I think the ones I got on display are good too. Although, I do worry that Arcardo looks a bit too much like Seth and Perceval, that manchild should be closer to Makalov.

Woo! That's more than I expected!
