I've decided to claim this game to map, and although it's still early, I've already finished the introduction level, with a few more in various states of completion. The labyrinths will require a lot of polish since they features a ton of fake parallax effects that will need to be corrected.

And to put some weight behind my claim, behold!

I'll have to remember that gradient trick for future light level changing maps.  Solves a lot of problems.

I tied with a completely smooth gradiant at first but it looked unnatural thanks to the millions of colors contrasting with the primitive GBC graphics. So I made a custom layer mask with distinct steps instead in order to achieve something that looked less advanced.

Very nice! It's about time that game got some love. It would also really help me in finding the last dang firefly...

I used VisualBoyAdvance-ReRecording v24m along with a homemade LUA script that allows me to move all over the current map (and through any obstacles) using keyboard keys as long as scrolling isn't prevented by the game (I'm working on overcoming that). It's rough but it works well enough for my purpose since the maps tend to be *huge*.

Well, *huge* for a Game Boy Color game so your mileage may vary. So far, they tend to be, on average, about 4000-5000 pixels wide and 512-1024 pixels high. So no huge map with all the areas included is possible because of the total size it would have to be.

Do you used tiled Qt to help with this?

I'm not sure how to answer that one exactly. You can't just substitute colors from one to the other since the night palette is a bit larger than the day one, and in some stages, the same color might be part of both palettes but not for the same color entry. I just assemble snapshots from both version, it's probably quicker than messing around with the palettes.
