Summary
In one sentence, what this archive contain ease the battle background (BBG) palette editing by allowing correct background images to be edited in Gimp, then their palettes imported in the ROM. The archive contain all default palette, BBG rips and final BBG rips with correct palette order (which are those displayed in this thread and on the wiki). The archive also contain a palette exporter, image converter and palette importer.

All displayed rips are 256×147 8bpp indexed PNG images with FF3us ROM palette order. All rips available on the internet are 240×141 non-indexed images. Removing the game window black border allow almost a full rip, except for a row of 1 pixel. It is strongly suggested to check the readme if you want to edit Battle Background palettes.

The set of 54 BBG have the 6 heat wave BBG but the property is removed. The 6 BBG at the bottom have the property set. The difference is that the heat effect can be made with the third palette of 16 (colors 32 to 48). Those may appear "unused" on an image with the effect disabled. Using a BBG image with heat effect enabled (like provided in the archive) allow to edit more colors in Gimp, the only advantage it gave is you might have a better idea of what you are editing instead of going a bit blind for colors 32 to 48 in the other case. This was observed on a test desert BBG, I can't guarantee all 6 BBGs work this way and I dunno about a heat effect on a normal BBG (tested on Opera BBG and the effect was working).

Also I updated the release to version 1.01. I had mistaken provided a duplicate set of 8bpp BBG in the place of the 32bpp rips. This also led to some bug with the converter because I mistakenly tested it with the 8bpp set, so the bug was hidden until I realized the swap and tested with a 32bpp set. Bug is now fixed.

Edit:
When the band is about to start but the venue is overcrowded
and temperature reach one similar to a humid day of summer

I updated to version 1.02. Converter optimization (one final image generated instead of one temporary one and one final), code clean-up and source now included. I also made a GitHub repository (see 1st post). This is the final versions of the utilities.
