You can use the Standard Palette configuration panel to control the source of the colors that are used by the Displays you create. 


Each of the red, green, and blue color components have their own drawing plane and are manipulated independently.  Run the setting titled "The Watcher" in a true color video mode for an example of this effect.  

Palette File

You supply the name of a palette file containing the color set you wish to use with the display.  Palette files provide a simple way of allowing you to reuse the palettes you create.

Custom Palette

This is similar to the Palette File effect except that it uses whatever colors you presently have stored in the "Custom" palette editor.   The benefit of this option is that it allows you to store the colors for the display with the  rest of the display settings.  This is useful for times when you want to share your settings with others.


Duration determines how long the colors you specify will be used before they are reloaded.  Normally you would adjust this setting to its highest value.  However, if you choose to use a wildcard value (like *.PAL) for the palette file, when the duration elapses, the next palette file that matches the mask will be loaded.
