Moving a colour palette and applying bitplane masks?


#1

Hi there,

I’ve been using Promotion-NG now for a while but in limited capacity, I program home-brew games on the Amiga.

I have a couple of questions regarding the capabilities of Promotion-NG

Is it possible to move a colour palette? For example due to working in bit planes I often need to move a palette from colour registers 0-15 to 16-31, in PPaint this is a real pain to do.

My next question is around applying masks, lets say I’m working in 6 Bit-plane 64 colour mode, I draw a sprite using the first 16 colours of the palette, I then want to see what the sprite will look like by applying a mask to bitplane 4 which will effectively make the same sprite use colours 16-31.

Is it possible to do this? If it is then I need to ditch Ppaint completely.
