Default Red cross patch for Golden Mask?

Is there a patch that makes the green medical packs red? I know there's some texture modding tools but wondered if anyone had already made one?

Why would you want to modify the color of the cross on the medipack? Is the red color just prettier?

Certain countries do not have Red Cross, and I think there are legal issues with using the Red Cross logo without permission.

Yes, I believe at some point it was decided that the Red Cross didn't want people to dilute the recognisability of their logo by using it as a generic "health"-symbol, in response to which many video games stopped using the red cross on health pickups, changing either the symbol or the colours.
I personally don't mind the green crosses (my PS1 port of Golden Mask has them in green as well), but given that somebody asked for it and I could make the patch in a few minutes, I didn't see a reason not to make it.

Internationally, the Red Cross symbol is protected under the Geneva Convention therefore you cannot legally use it.

Either Core Design realised this themselves or they were told to remove it, it’s been protected since 1957.

This is very interesting actually. I've always wondered why they suddenly changed colors on the medipacks. Thanks for that

I haven't been paying attention as I had no idea the medpack cross colours are different between TR2 and GM. Green crosses was featured in TR3 first as Golden Mask was released a year later in 1999.
