Extend rom to 2MB. Add 200 byte header.
Open Windows CMD command prompt. Run zcompress with the CMD. Use command: zcompress 0 [filename].smc GFX.bin
This will extract gfx into bin file.
Load bin file in YYchr program.
Load rom in Zsnes emulator and save state when outside to create ZST save state.
Load ZST save state in YYchr while the rom is opened to load the correct palettes.
Go to gfx address with the A LINK TO THE PAST title.
Draw the new title (dot by dot) and save the bin.
Go to zcompress and recompress new gfx .bin file into smc by using the command: zcompress 1 87200 [filename].smc GFX.bin.
Open the rom in Hyrule Magic and go to Screen editing. Select Title screen.
Select correct Pal and use the "draw" to redraw titlescreen elements on Bg2 (small rectangles) with the new gfx to make a new title.

You can select a different palette in the window in the lower right corner.

now it comes the probs when i make an zst screen with Zsnes outside links house or ? when i see the title screen with

Make your ZST when whatever it is that you want to edit is on screen. It doesn't save every palette, only the ones that are loaded at the time.

the title ** A link to the past ** is not showing up

It's in there. Keep looking.

Also, why are you using ALL CAPS FOR YOUR THREAD TITLES? I'm sure I'm not the only person who hates that.

If you want to edit the title screen, make a ZST when the title screen is displayed. If you do it any other time you will have the wrong palettes. Make a ZST when your edit target is on screen.

Did you try to add rooms to Link's house? Or did you make rooms elsewhere that are leading to Link's house by accident?

So when you go through the door that's circled you end up in room 256, right?

What type of door (ie: 001, 007, 03F, etc.) is that?

Have you tried it with an 06F? 0C5 may be a door that is meant to lead to different rooms rather than the room next door.

Read the Hyrule Magic guide.
Primary door to insert in case of horizontal movement is door that leads to the left and with type-0 (it will go to a "double" automatically). You must not have special doors in Link's house. You maybe have too much jars in the room, which can cause problems. The game has its limits, of what you can do.

Regarding the room header. In this room you don't have any staircase or warp or hole. And there must be none in Link's house. If you don't have holes, warps, staircases, you must not fill in the values, you decheck them completely by pressing the arrow-button-up, which is right of the telepatic message. This wil "close" the staircase frames all together.

PS
Real doors also have hex values. Double click the door to see its hex value.

what ill do
Try to read what I've written above.
You must not have special doors in Link's house or it can cause problems. You maybe have too much jars in the room, which can cause problems. The game has its limits, of what you can do.
Or in other words remove this door completely, remove the door leading up, remove all jars (15 jars in one room is too much). Those things are for dungeons, not Link's house, and certainly not for rooms above 255.

PS
You already bugged your rom (room scroll bug). Use the backup or ASM to debug it.

I tested this out.

The game will not allow for you to have a horizontal door in room 260 on the upper possition.

This bug is a part of the original game - basically the scrolls were falsly set by original authors (or they just didn't bother fixing this), since they did not predict more than one small room (=one quarter of the room) in this global room 260. So no such transition exists in Alttp. Like said above: try not to exit rooms beyond 255 drastically. Edit dungeons instead.

Do not use this door. You need to remove this door completely. (debugging this is possible, but it needs ASM and not many people can trace and undo this).

You can fix this problem by simply remove the horizontal door in room 260 using HM. No ASM needed for this. Why do you force a door, where the original Alttp has a bug?
Start with a new rom will do you no good, all Alttp roms and hacks have this bug.
