Heya -- these images are broken. Could you just post the pico-8 colour indices?

Images reuploaded!

Sorry, for the lighting, can I blend black color with opacity 0.5 on top of my scene?

Colors for pico 8 for both cga palettes:

I also think that
the dark palette versions should be mentioned on the main page.

EDIT:
Since this post might be a bit confusing here are the color ids for the palettes:

palette 0 (light): (0, 8, 11, 10)
palette 0 (dark):  (0, 2, 3, 4)
palette 1 (light): (0, 14, 12, 7)
palette 1 (dark):  (0, 2, 13, 6)
    OR
palette 1 (light): (0, 14, 11, 7)
palette 1 (dark):  (0, 2, 3, 6)

IMPORTANT: it seems like the dark palette versions are not allowed. they are allowed ...

I would love to know the index's of the pico8 colors.

What color is the palette 1 light "white" color is that "peach" #15 or "grey" #6 ?

That picture is extremely confusing. Colorblind pico noobs: there is no way to get actual CGA colors, just use these Pico8 approximations 

0 light: (0, 8, 11, 10)

0 dark: (0, 2, 3, 4)

1 light: (0, 14, 12, 7) or (0, 14, 15, 7)

 1 dark: (0, 2, 13, 6) or (0, 2, 3, 6)


Edit: I made a thing as I poke at Pico8 to see each of the 6 potential palettes: https://www.lexaloffle.com/bbs...

I added the color ids to my post. Note that palette 1 (light alt) uses 11 (light green), not 15 (peach). The problem with the pico8 palette is that it has no real cyan.

So one last Pico-8 noob color question. In Pico-8  color 0 (black) is default transparent... Can we use the palt to set some other color to transperent in order to use black. Example if I wanted to use 1 dark (0,2,13,6) can I use (0,2,13,6) as the colors I display and color 8 (red) as the transparency since it would never be displayed?  "palt(0,false) palt(8, true) "

See images below.


Thanks!

Yes of course no problem. Always that only 4 colors are whowed no problem ;)
