For the palette, sadly, it's normal. ALL the "game objects" use the player's palettes. Even if you try to change you Coin palette... in game, it will use the player ones. Joe explains that in the videos.
I could use that to my advantage, tho. I wanted them to be gold, but I could actually give off the illusion that it's Silver, since my character has a light gray color scheme to it. Similar to how in the 1983 Mario Brothers Arcade Game, Luigi had to use the same pallet as the Shellcreeper (Koopa Troopas), due to memory limitations. This might be more of an advantage, than anything.

So what about the extremely slow animation? Is this a bug, or did I do something wrong?

Also, thanks to you helping me on this, I was able to make 2 types of currency pickups. (One of my friends came up with the idea)

The silver one gives you 50 points and adds 1 on the counter, the red one gives you 100 points and adds 2 on the counter.

How is you Currency Pickup object? did you set an "animation speed" (for the action step 0)?
Is it slow when you put it on a screen? Or when only when it's spawn after a monster death?

I didn't spawn any monsters. I did set the animation speed to make it as fast as it could go (0) and yeah, it's set to be a pickup, like it should be.

OKAY I FIXED IT!! Apparently, the fastest speed isn't so fast after all. I set one of them to 5 and it's at normal speed now.

Also, I'm having a problem importing the platform thing you linked me. I got an error messaged, and I posted about it in the post itself.

I can’t help on this one, didn’t try that script since looks like it’s not finished yet.
