[00:30:20] <Colourless> pupnik, so my old 286 could display 64000 colours... wow
[00:31:16] <pupnik_> hehe
[00:31:57] <pupnik_> it was too amusing to bother correcting
[00:33:34] <Colourless> strictly speaking, you could choose a palette of 256 colours from a total of 262144
[00:34:17] <pupnik_> do you remember noah spurrier's 'acidwarp'?
[00:34:28] <Colourless> can't say i do
[00:35:18] <pupnik_> he invented a clever hack with the color look-up palette
[00:35:34] <pupnik_> previously demos and some games used color cycling for part of the palette (shifting)
[00:35:56] <pupnik_> he had the idea of adding several color ramps and shifting those seperately while displaying an image
[00:36:24] <pupnik_> it was a great effect. first person to think of it

[18:06:06] <watt_> That answer doesn't scale well :-) They do have a better question that has gone unanswered where a similar answer would apply: "What is the difference between 16 bit and 32 bit color?"
