I have no idea about the specs beyond the fact that you can use orange :D but you can certainly tweak the MODE 7 palette using the RobC's wonderful add-on.


What's the specs of the available palette etc? I assume it's just capable of remapping the 8 colours using a look up table? In which case most of my simple recoloured pics should work fine.
It's surprising how much difference just subtly tweaking the palette can make to a picture really.

You can map all 7 colours in MODE 7 (not black) to anything from a 12-bit palette so 4096 possible colours.

Non-Teletext examples: http://stardot.org.uk/forums/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=13545

There's a small palette utility so you could save out an updated Teletext 2.X palette file for others to enjoy. :)

Merry Christmas!

2049
Inspired by the Soundtrack to the film which I painted this to........although it should be greyer - this picture is more Tron than Bladerunner!
