I've pushed a small demo containing GHZ and MMZ for you guys to play around in with the fixes I've made. Do feel free to critique in the comments or ask questions regarding development, I'll try to answer them.
This mod sets out to restore some of the color palettes of various sprites to how they were before Sonic Mania Plus, as well as fix some general inconsistencies in the various color palettes throughout the game.

Changes include:

Badnik Palettes restored to their original colors before the Plus Update

New or modified Palettes for Encore mode that are easier on the eyes

Encore Palettes modified to stay consistent between Acts (Such as the Jugglesaws in Press Garden)

Other various improvements for your enjoyment!

This mod is still a work in progress, so I hope you'll stay tuned for more updates! I'll occasionally push out small demos so you guys can give me feedback and suggestions for future updates!

    What about Heavy Shinobi and Mirage Saloon 1K? Those have palette issues, too. Some sprites are black on them.
    The one and only revolution.

    The lighter blue badniks don't look too bad but the other ones are such huge downgrades from before.

    The new shading on the badniks seen in the first screenshot looks hideous.

    You know, I think you should also change Sonic and Knuckles' palettes too, since I never really understood the reason why they're so bright and light blue/pink. Darker blue and red would fit more, imo, to be more consistent with the Classic games.
