Official, default palette (new)

New! January 2018 update: Grays are less brownish, purple is darker.

Why is it important to use the default palette?

  • We spent lot of time fine tuning this palette to get the perfect blend of colors.
  • You can't really go wrong with these colors.
  • This will give the Gamebuino games a consistent look.
  • They are not garish nor not dull and all different.
  • This is a pretty versatile palette, you should be able to do any kind of games with it.
  • They are the default colors used in indexed mode.

I was having issues with Pskel not playing nicely with Bitdefender. So I installed GraphicsGale instead. And that seems to work.

It does have a palette feature, and I went ahead and made a basic .gal file with that loaded up for anyone else who happens to want to use this program.

Here it is:
