Good Day Richard!

I tried to open NES Palettes (*.pal) with Cyotek Palette Editor, but it says that the format is unsupported.

Can you please add support for this format? All NES palettes are 192 Bytes (64 colors).

Here are some palettes you can try:

Please let me know if I can help with anything.

Thank you very much Richard, hope you are doing fine.

Thanks for the suggestion. 192 and 64 suggested this is a simple RGB triplets palette and I logged issue #485 to implement it.

On checking the source website I found This useful page included downloadable palettes along with reference images and thus I was easily able to test my implementation using the Digital Prime (FBX) download.

The next build nightly build of 1.8 should include this type.

(PS: Requests like this normally wouldn't normally be implemented Soon(TM) let alone instantly, a) you caught me in a break b) it is probably the simplest file format possible and which is already implemented and c) reference images were available so I could instantly be sure it was correct)

Hello Richard, sorry for the late reply.

Tried the nightly build of Palette Editor 1.8 for opening NES palettes, and it worked perfectly, thank you very much! :D

Wish you all the best,
