Not a Bug Pit changed colors?!

    Okay, I have no idea what happened, but here goes..
    I was at 4-4. Ready to fight Bowser. I get up to him and attempt to shoot a large arrow, when suddenly...

    ... THAT happened.
    And it stayed that way even after I died;

    Can somebody PLEASE explain why this happened?!

    EDIT: It seems after continuing from a Game Over, pressing Special no longer lets me shoot arrows, but lets me switch between the normal palette and.. this, and I can't shoot arrows anymore. I officially have no idea what happened.

    Okay, I really feel like I needed to bump this. Sorry, this is just driving me mad that I can't shoot arrows all of a sudden. (I still have this specific game running, by the way.)

    World 1-1 Level 6: Lakitu

    Man, the thread's one and a half hour old. You don't need to bump it.

    Well sorry for being driven mad by something that literally happened out of NOWHERE for no reason whatsoever.

    EDIT: Okay, so now I can shoot arrows when I'm on the green palette. When I die while green, though, I can't shoot anything or switch back to the red palette to shoot until I get arrows back. I still find it weird how the gameplay mechanic would literally change out of nowhere, though.

    Well since you can't learn seem to answer them beforehand by yourself:
    1. Are you using any keybindings that aren't the default?
    2. What console were you emulating?
    3. What upgrades did you have?

    I'm trying to confirm it by myself now.

    No.
    NES.
    Just the arrows. No Mushroom or anything.

    None of these seem to relate to the problem at hand. Literally for half the game, I was just fine, shooting arrows by pressing C, and suddenly now I have to switch colors to shoot them. I just don't get it.

    You're playing with Classic Samus.

    What-OH. Oh.
    But I'm thinking even that has its glitches. Like being able to shoot normally with it when you die with it.

    That's possible. Could you try to reproduce that?

    I take it the World 1-1 runs when you don't shoot are runs when you can't?

    Actually, I just didn't bother shooting those times.
    I don't remember if I had ammo or not when the color changed on me the first time around.
    I might experiment with it further.

    Have you tried it with other Samus skins? If it's happening with Pit, it should be happening with Samus in general. There's nothing special about Pit when it comes to missile usage and palette changes. If it is only happening with Pit, that does help narrow it down a little.

    This whole thread actually just came out of a mild freakout. What I listed technically isn't a bug, so maybe I should make a new thread to clarify my point better.

    They did that where you have to press Select to switch between missiles and normal gun?!

    Special, actually, though I think Select also does it.

    Well, there never was a Special button on the NES controller, but there was a Select. :p
