(1) take basis address pc: 06/B359
(2) check in Hyrule Magic the sprite number you want to change; Blue soldier is 41
Change global palette of a sprite Image210
(3) add this in HEX! to 06/B359:
(4) at pc 06/b39a you find the 19 which is blue for blue soldier. Change the palette according to the palette key below to your wishes (e.g., 19 is blue palette, 17 is red, 1b is green.

This works for every sprite so you can edit the palette specific to each sprite now! An exception are stage 2 sprites that change forms, like the amos statues. See below how to change them.

Here's the palette key:

Here's when you change at 06/B39A the 19 to 1d (all blue soldiers changed to golden):

In case you need another color in the global palette you need to repixel each gfx.

Stage 2 sprites:
Some sprites change forms, so you need to change the palette a second time.
crab giving rupees when lifted bush:  03/2915: 09
amos when awoke: 02/B759: 0b
blue tektite 03/0D8E: 09
red tektite 03/0D8f: 07  
leevers: 03/0dea:02

The key is similar to above palette key, only that you need to substract 10 (e.g., blue is 09 instead of 19, red is 07 instead 17). You may notice that amos when awake is actually the green palette (0b or 1b). The code rewrites the green palette so that awoke amos statues look golden. So you cannot have green sprites (like green soldiers together with the amos statues in one screen.

It works on both indoor and outdoor sprites. All you need to do is to add in hex the sprite index to 06/B359 and edit the table entry how I described that in the OP; check the image how to find the correct value of your palette you want to use (small mistake in that image: 09 palette is of course 0f palette (that hex thing...)).

At 06B39A in hex, change 19 into 17 and the blue soldiers will be red.

Rom must have no-header, now go to hex address
06B39A (is 06B359+41= blue soldier sprite value), and change the default value 19 to something else:

0F= dark blue
11= green
13= yellow
15= light blue
17= purple/red
19= default (current)
1B= light green
1D= gold
1F= orange (my picture)

Close the rom in Hyrule Magic and open the rom with the Hex editor and go to address 06B39A and change the byte 19 to 17. Here a screenshot, which I normally would not do:

Thank you for this information!
It is incredibly helpful!

There are still some sprites I can't seem to find, one of those is the King of Hyrule (Credits) and the King of Hyrule from the opening scene (the skull face-like King)
I want to change the global palette for those two so that the King from the credits has a red robe (like WW).

Anyone knows how to change the global palette for those two?

Post Wed 6 Apr 2016 - 13:55 by Puzzledude

The skull face king should have the same palettes as the sprite Agahnim. King of Hyrule (credits) is another thing, since this is a "puppet" sprite, not the actual sprite. So if he is not in the sprite list of HM, his pal is not in that sprite area in hex. He is either using pals from other sprites or the pal is at another (undocumented) location.
