Re: Palette Colors

I did know, didn't write it down.  

If you "just haf'ta know" I suppose I can spend a bit of time this weekend to "rediscover".

I seem to recall looking at all the palette entries and noticing the same "header bits", then adjusted the next three entries to Red (which I recall was ff,00,00) and made a graph.

While we're at it, a suggestion, export the branch to disk, make a working copy and fiddle with it in notepad, upload, fiddle, upload, etc. When you're done or give up, reload the "good" .reg file.

At the time I was on my way to define a custom color palette. Got sidetracked!
