DOUBLE HAWK (Enhanced Colors V1.0)

- Added and optimized colors to palette routines
- FM sound is enabled if hardware is present else PSG Sound
- Corrected stupid infinite loop when you finish game, now press a button and game restarts including your score saved in memory
- Target moved inside "1" or "2" player character in main select screen
- Moved-Centered players in 2 players mode
- Recalculated Checksum


This game is doubling palette many times, then you get only 14 colors from 32 (including black), many backgrounds are only 4 to 5 colors and sharing with enemies and players, sometimes it is confused.

I hacked game to get better visual experience and corrected more details

PD: Combat Boat RED?????? Really?????

Let's compare:

Hi BcnAbel76, it looks great, I would like to try it if it were possible. This kind of hacks are very useful in my opinion, because missing or touching something because of this is so annoying.

Thank your for your constant work with the SMS.

Gracias!.

Hi BcnAbel76, I've just download your patch and tryied it in original hardware. I finished the game in easy and I didn't realize any bug or suffered any problem, I was able to finish the game without any problem.

It looks great and you did such a wonderful job. I would like to thank you for your time and effort doing it. I enjoyed a lot playing this game again.
I thought about playing it with my brother in coop mode when all this pandemic has gone.

Thank you very much.
