Question about color palette and sprites swap in NES game

Post by jawlingomes » Mon Nov 11, 2019 1:38 pm

Hi, I want to make a custom rom for hacked SNESmini as a wedding gift for my friends. At first I thought the easiest way to do that would be creating custom sprites for bride and groom and put it into Super Mario Bros. Than I realised that this game uses the same sprite for P1 and P2 with different palette and both of those palettes are only 4 colors. So, I've got two questions:

a) are palettes limited to 4 colours?

b) is there a way to add new, different sprite for P2 without getting into semi advanced coding?
