    You have been warned!

    Splatoon Colorizer

    Current supported Splatoon version: 2.7.0
    What it is:
    A simple GUI that enables anyone with the ability to install the tcpGecko code handler on there Wii U to easily change the colors on Splatoon.
    Please note, the color can NOT change mid match!​

    [​IMG]

    Requirements:
    • A PC with at least Java 1.8
    • A Wii U that you can install the tcpGecko code handler
    • Splatoon

    Installation:

    This program requires two things, a recent version of Java and my launcher; the launcher is required because of some libraries that I use. Download my launcher here(adfree) and extract it to the same location that you put the colorizer in. Then drag the colorizer ".gud" file onto the batch file if you are on Winderps, otherwise open a shell in the current directory and execute "java -jar gudWrapper.jar SplatoonColorizer.gud" to run it.​

    Usage:
    Enter the IP address of the Wii U with the code handler installed in the text field at the top and click connect. Then choose the colors you want by picking them in the interface; you can use some predefined colors, or set your own with HSV, HSL, RGB or CMYK. If you want to could also check the "Randomize" box to enable the app to choose a color triad when sending the info to the Wii U. Then when you want to set the colors click the "Colorize" button, or check "Constant" which simulates pressing the button once a second. If you would like to get the colors from the Wii U you can click "Get Colors". Please note, the color only changes during level loading. If you want you can experiment with the random ranges using the sliders on the bottom.​

    Download is here(adfree).

    Updates:
    When an update is available the colorizer will open a dialog asking if you want to download an update. Clicking yes will ask your default web browser to download the new version.​

    Thanks:
    • Thanks to all the people who helped make tcpGecko a thing
    • Thanks to @NWPlayer123 for a couple ideas, offsets and testing 18 versions of this
    • Nintendo for the amazing game

    This is something awesome and I really hope that this will be compatible with the new IOSU exploit. If I press Constant, can I play around with the colors in real time while someone else is playing?

    On your router's config page. Or a network scanner app.

    Sadly, no. That is not how it works. Some of the data gets cached somewhere, there is a slim chance that could happen later.

    Can you show some screenshots of it in action? For example in-game with black and white ink.

    Also in the screen shot you posted, color code FFFFFF red?

    Nope, alpha must be 1. The program always makes the alpha correct though.

    Thanks great work @gudenaurock! I will give this a good go over Christmas day, some of the family will be wondering how come I am a mad color and how did you do it, when secretly I have set this up in the office and playing Splatoon in the TV room, ha ha! :lol:

    By the way just a note. I know this sounds silly to you & me but you should put in your OP you need to run the kernal & Gecko first as well to run this app properly cause you will only get people saying its not working or how do i get it working?, especially if 5.5.0 exploit comes out over Christmas or members are getting 5.3.2 WiiU's for Chrimbo presents!. Just a thought :)

    Yes I saw that but the word "codehandler"may not mean a lot to many that would not know the "codehandler" meant "TCPGecko" cause many servers call it TCPGecko not codehandler also running the original kernal first not the loadiine version. Trust me, newbies can easily be confused by technical terms! :)

    Interesting, Apple breaks things; as per usual. Should be an easy fix, I will update the launcher tomarrow.
