If you generated two effects and choose different channels like 3 for one and 4 for the other you can use them together. But you'll have to combine the output. Like mix the init and main of each and rename the tables if they use the same ones.

It's cool but I have no idea how to even use it

When you generate a hdma effect using Others/ColorMath, the code generated is incomplete. It doesn't generate the HDMA Routine or the table.

why don't you put an effect using mode 7

too good to be real

Too good to pass off!

This is so much easier to use than I thought it would be. I'm not sure I'll ever go back to one-color skies. 5/5

It’s very compatible with 32 bit version of Windows 10. Awesome job.

Tested within Windows 10, 64 bits.

I was waiting for this update (from the last submission, I mean) in order to preserve the older Effect Tool in our old versions archive (the UberASM patch is not scrapped yet).

Regarding the tool... the update does what it does, i.e., the codes are now SA-1 hybrid and compatible with the tool version of UberASM. Tools used: SA-1 1.32, Lunar Magic 3.11, ZMZ 1.08 and UberASMTool 1.4. Accepted.

This is one of my favourite HDMA stuff for my hacks. #smw{:peace:}

this is a must-have!

Very Useful

Dang. This is seriously a breakthrough for HDMA. I remember when we were only given a set of HDMA gradients to work with. But now the possibilities are endless because of this simple, yet effective tool. Many thanks @JackTheSpades!

The original game doesn't intend for other HDMA to be running during levels, so message boxes directly write to $0D9F instead of setting the appropriate bits. This can be fixed by hex editing $05B129 and $05B296 (see the ROM map).
Xane123 From older version: Effect Tool 2.0.1 Link
Effect Tool is awesome, making HDMA-related effects like gradients and parallax scrolling very easy to add to levels in my hack.

Do be warned that hitting a info box in the game will usually make all effects stop working; I've only seen a gradient reappear after the message disappears.
TheBiob From older version: Effect Tool 2.0.1 Link
If you're using UberASMTool make sure you changed all RTS to RTL for it to not crash in-game
Raggy From older version: Effect Tool 2.0.1 Link
Anything I've generated with this tool always leads to a black screen on level start with the off chance of a spectacular crash after waiting a while.

Though I seem to be the only one with issues, unless there is someone else?

When I first downloaded this (same version), it kept crashing on startup. However, a few days later (the only thing I've done is restarted once), it's working like a charm.
Bugsbunny205 From older version: Effect Tool 2.0.1 Link
It works perfectly for me! :D

COLOR MATH!

Anyways, nice tool! Makes HDMA easier.

I have trouble getting it to start up, but it works.
Hyperfenix From older version: Effect Tool 2.0.1 Link
Please fix the crashing, I open it, it runs for a second or two then closes.
Mogu94 From older version: Effect Tool 2.0.1 Link
Not sure what's up with all this crash talk, I've not had this tool crash on me once.

Also, Konata, it would not be Vitor who'd need to fix the crashing. That'd be JackTheSpades.
D3r_Bu1ld3r From older version: Effect Tool 2.0.1 Link
Can you finally add the function for adding screenshots for waves, Parallax etc?
Konata Izumi From older version: Effect Tool 2.0.1 Link
vitor please fix the crashing my man. since it really is useless now it might as well be rejected
Jesse the Scientist From older version: Effect Tool 2.0.1 Link
The program just crashes after a few seconds of booting up

When I try to start it up, it just crashes.

Needs more math insanity!

The program keeps crashing randomly on the "windows" part.
