C64 pallette

on: July 20, 2006, 10:14:24 am
First off I know there are several different pallettes because of sometnig to do with tuning.  Secondly, I would like to attain a pallette commonly used among people trying to use such a pallette.

And thirdly, could someone refresh me on the restrictions per 8x8 square. 

I hate to ask so much, but I want to try and improve myself.  Looking at some C64 stuff, I saw that it could look good, and I want to learn how to use colours in a smart way.

There are no ugly colours, only ugly combinations of colours.

Thank you ptoing.  To be quite honest, I expected all that information in that info thing to be inserted into here.  A sort of C64 rant if you will. 
Hopefully youll see work from me soon using this.  And hopefully it will be half decent.

Thank a bunch, Ptoing. Those greys are a bit tricky to figure out.

Since we're on the topic of palettes, does anyone know where to go to find the amiga palette or SNES palette? I've tried to do googles for them but I can't figure out the right words to use.

oh yeah, could you spare us(me) some information about sprites and sprite restricitions with the c64? and any other things that might be along the lines of that(tiles, etc)
would be much appreciated.
