Share your color palettes here if you want! Include a screenshot and all the info to paste into the color palette ini file.

Mixolumia comes with a bunch of color palettes, but you can make your own, too! Here's a template you can download and edit to help visualize your colors:


You will need to edit the following file...

WIN: %LOCALAPPDATA%/Mixolumia/user_palettes.ini
MAC: ~/Library/Application Support/com.davemakes.mixolumia/user_palettes.ini

You may need to run Mixolumia once to generate this file.

There are six hexadecimal colors in a Mixolumia palette. The format for the .ini file goes like this:

[0]
name=Pico Dark
0=000000
1=1d2b53
2=fff7f2
3=ffec27
4=29adff
5=ff004d
    
[1]
name=Pico Light
0=fff1e8
1=f0d4d3
2=1d2b53
3=ffa300
4=29adff
5=ff004d
    
[2]
name=Grim Roguelike
author=Noé Charron @celechii
0=3c0902
1=290402
2=fab7af
3=d2001e
4=ad001a
5=fab7af

Make sure you number each palette sequentially, no skipping or repeating numbers or else your palette might not load correctly.

The colors correspond to these game parts:
0: Background
1: Game Board
2: Empty Block and Text
3: Filled Block and Selected Text
4: Hole Block
5: Target Block

Pro Tip: Colors 0 and 1 should have pretty low contrast with each other or else it will be hard to see the pieces when things get wild.

Make sure that each entry has a unique number, and there are no breaks between numbers. Show me your color palettes, and maybe I'll include them in future releases!

For when you need to hack your way into the mainframe

This is so fun! I made one based on a game of mine. If anyone know what the second one is referencing you win a prize (the prize is me saying "oh cool you figured it out!"). NOTE: For me using the itch app on Windows 7, the folder was here - C:\Users\USERNAME\AppData\Roaming\itch\apps\mixolumia\data

So there's two folders, the actual game resources folder and the user folder. You can edit both, but if you change stuff in the game's folder it may cause conflicts or get overwritten when updates come. So I suggest you stick to editing:

C:\Users\USERNAME\AppData\Local\Mixolumia\user_palettes.ini
(+1)

Ah, so the reason I used the other folder was that for me there is no Mixolumia folder in that location! So I was trying to find a different one

I know the second one is a reference to something, so the name is probably important, but "Get Rid of the Grid" is a good contender.

Hello! I made a little web app to generate and share color palettes. I've still got a bit of enhancements I want to make but it's functional enough that it should be useful to this channel. Try it out : D 

https://mixolumia-palette-picker.netlify.app/?0=000000&1=808080&2=ffffff&3=ffffff&4=ffffff&5=ffffff&name=Monochome%20Dark

I'm posting about the ongoing development of this here: https://twitter.com/ryanastelly/status/1292130765002674178

I'm using React and hosting on Netlify and the code is OSS here: https://github.com/FLGMwt/mixolumia-palette-picker

Power Chord is amazing!! it's like radioactive punk rock slime injected into my retinas and I love it

The best description of a color palette I've ever heard haha. Glad you like it!

Hey, is it cool if I include Power Chord in a future Mixolumia release?

Oh absolutely, go for it! (Sorry for the late reply).

Amazing tool! Thanks!

Here is one I created based on the color palette for "The Legend of Zelda" on the NES:


name="The Hero"
author="sofamire"
0=f0d8a0
1=d2b77d
2=089000
3=a16703
4=4040f8
5=b03020

Here is one based on darker base colors, and then purple, orange and white:


name=Nightmare
author="sofamire"
0=000000
1=1f003b
2=7c00da
3=b75bff
4=efddff
5=f5a623

Here is one based off of Cherry Blossom/Sakura trees. The ripple effect looks really good as a kind of "water" in this one:


name="Sakura"
author="sofamire"
0=164b7f
1=19528b
2=fcb8f4
3=fcb8f4
4=fce4ff
5=fce4ff

Developer(+1)

Hey, is it cool if I include Nightmare and Sakura in a future Mixolumia release?

Yes, that would be great! I feel honored :)

Just played a couple rounds with Ash Heap -- loving it!!

Since I'm working on a review, I decided to make a thheme based on the green colors of my YouTube channel. Far from perfect, because, well, I'm not an artist, but good enough for my needs to show how it's modular.

Notably, on Mac, I've found it easiest to just locate the game, Open Package Contents, and find the pallettes.ini file to edit.

Developer

Nice! Be sure to back up your custom colors if you're editing the file in the app package, it may get overwritten on update.

Fnaf1 Color palette

i wanted to make something for funsies, the color of the pieces is based on each animatronic, the background is the same dark, but the board is a slight blue tint for the admosphere of the cameras from the first game.

i will try to use it once i get the game, either here or on steam.

Edit: i swaped color 2 and 3, the reason is because the orange color was pretty high, so it would annoy the vision of people who likes dark themes.

Meant to drop this here a while back, a palette loosely based on the 'Meguro' stage from Lumines.

I liked the idea of a palette with no background, and a color that really stands out, so I made this space-themed palette:

2=524cbb
3=fff98b

unsurprisingly, i knew i had to go and make something green for myself.  i call this one "Leafy Greens", its really soothing and makes me happy! so glad this customization is an option.
