COMPLETE NTSC & PAL Color Palettes

Recommended Posts

In the first post, is the top one NTSC and the bottom one PAL? There were no clues on the images or in the file names, so that's why I'm asking. Big hats off to your huge work here Trebor! 🙏 :thumbsup:

That's correct. An easy way to convert between the two is to think that NTSC colours are a row higher (or vice versa) so #$34 on PAL would be closest to #$24 on NTSC. The greyscale range at #$0x being the exception.

Thanks man!

Here's a cheat sheet of sorts:

 

NTSC $1x <--> PAL $2x
NTSC $2x <--> PAL $3x
NTSC $3x <--> PAL $4x
NTSC $4x <--> PAL $5x
NTSC $5x <--> PAL $6x
NTSC $6x <--> PAL $7x
NTSC $7x <--> PAL $8x
NTSC $8x <--> PAL $9x
NTSC $9x <--> PAL $Ax
NTSC $Ax <--> PAL $Bx
NTSC $Bx <--> PAL $Cx
NTSC $Cx <--> PAL $Dx
NTSC $Dx <--> PAL $Ex
NTSC $Ex <--> PAL $Fx

 

NTSC $Fx <--> N/A - Best nearest PAL $2x

PAL $1x <--> N/A - Best nearest NTSC $Dx

 

A 'finalized' version of (and in harmony with) this thread, is here:

@Trebor Is there any significant differences between A8 and A7800 Pallet? (NTSC/PAL)

Both looks almost this same to me.

No. The thread below is current with palette insights and variety.

Ditto with the NTSC 2600, just half the number of luminance values.   

 

PAL 2600 behaves similar to PAL 7800, but the palette order is shuffled around; additionally, the range values that undergo the most significant changes are grayscale ($0x) instead: $1x, $Ex, $Fx...

 

$1x = Strictly and very significantly impacted by the hue/tint setting of the display with system 'warm-up' having no impact.

$Ex$Fx = Strongly and often very significantly impacted by the 'warm-up' of the system in conjunction with the hue/tint of the display.

 

 

Here's the actual order:
PAL 2600 $0x = PAL 7800 $0x
PAL 2600 $1x = PAL 7800 $0x
PAL 2600 $2x = PAL 7800 $2x
PAL 2600 $3x = PAL 7800 $Dx
PAL 2600 $4x = PAL 7800 $3x
PAL 2600 $5x = PAL 7800 $Cx
PAL 2600 $6x = PAL 7800 $4x
PAL 2600 $7x = PAL 7800 $Bx
PAL 2600 $8x = PAL 7800 $5x
PAL 2600 $9x = PAL 7800 $Ax
PAL 2600 $Ax = PAL 7800 $6x
PAL 2600 $Bx = PAL 7800 $9x
PAL 2600 $Cx = PAL 7800 $7x
PAL 2600 $Dx = PAL 7800 $8x
PAL 2600 $Ex = PAL 7800 $0x
PAL 2600 $Fx = PAL 7800 $0x

Or the same thing grouped another way:
PAL 2600 $2x = PAL 7800 $2x
PAL 2600 $4x = PAL 7800 $3x
PAL 2600 $6x = PAL 7800 $4x
PAL 2600 $8x = PAL 7800 $5x
PAL 2600 $Ax = PAL 7800 $6x
PAL 2600 $Cx = PAL 7800 $7x
PAL 2600 $Dx = PAL 7800 $8x
PAL 2600 $Bx = PAL 7800 $9x
PAL 2600 $9x = PAL 7800 $Ax
PAL 2600 $7x = PAL 7800 $Bx
PAL 2600 $5x = PAL 7800 $Cx
PAL 2600 $3x = PAL 7800 $Dx

PAL 2600 $0x = PAL 7800 $0x
PAL 2600 $1x = PAL 7800 $0x
PAL 2600 $Ex = PAL 7800 $0x
PAL 2600 $Fx = PAL 7800 $0x
