General Discussion / NES, Super NES and Mega Drive/Genesis Palettes
« on: April 30, 2009, 04:18:48 pm »
Hi there.

I've been wanting to make NES and Genesis/SNES styled sprites. But for that I wanted the original 8-bit and 16-bit palettes of each console.
Is there somewhere I can find them?
Or maybe I can use emulators, load a rom, take screenshots and copy the colors I like. That... solves it. But I don't know if the palettes the "computer" displays are to be trusted. Well, I trust an emulator more than some sprite sheets that can be found on the web. I've compared several sprites in sprite sheets with the colors of a screenshot from an emulator taken by me. The difference is sometimes big and sometimes small.
I kind of feel confused.
I think I'll just take the colors directly from the emulators' screenshots, but first I'd like to know whether the colors are the real ones.

I'll appreciate any tips you got.

PS: I hope I'm not breaking any rule with this topic.
