NES Programming #33 – Selecting colors and adjusting palettes

Watch this video on YouTube.

Quote:

In this rather short stream, I updated our palette to match the color palette of FCEUX, and added the ability to select and update the colors in the metatile and sprite palettes. Sorry for being thick-witted tonight, but hopefully I’ll be back to my normal self Monday. As a reward for your patience, if you watch to the end you’ll see what I have in store for the game’s core mechanic. Have a good weekend. See you Monday
