PALETTES.BIN

PALLETES.BIN stores all the 256 colour palettes in a game. Currently, the only 256 colour palette is the master palette. It is a replacement for the ugly .MAS lump, and adds the possibility of multiple palettes: in the future we plan to give each sprite and backdrop its own 8 bit palette. If a PALETTES.BIN lump exists, any .MAS lump should be ignored.

The colour components are 0-255 (8 bit) instead of 0-63 (6 bit) as in MAS.

The lump starts with a header:

About Formal Specs

Offset Type Meaning
0 INT Size of the header, in bytes (currently 4)
1 INT Size of each palette record, in bytes (currently 256 * 3 = 768)

Following the header is one record per palette:

Offset (in INTs) Type Meaning
0 - 383:
256 colour records
256 * 3 * BYTEs
BYTE 0: Red component, 0 - 255
BYTE 1: Green component, 0 - 255
BYTE 2: Blue component, 0 - 255
