For Kizul's Definitive NTSC NES Palette

These screenshots were generated by NEStopia; if you see any oddities at the top and/or bottom, that's because NEStopia's screenshots ignore overscan clip settings, thus showing the top and bottom 8 pixels that are normally hidden on an NTSC television (and in most emulators).

I created this palette by hooking up my own NES to a super-old capture card — an ATi TV Wonder VE — and recording short video clips of the output, captured via a program called DScaler.

There's more to it than that, but to make a long story short: the process was very time-consuming, and a bit dull; the results are much more enjoyable than the story of how I got the results. :)

(Using the Bee 52-specific palette included in my palette pack, where $1D (used as the main 'gray' you see here) is brightened a bit to match the levels on a television.)

(With NEStopia's Brightness increased from 0.0 to 0.31 to match the levels on a television.)

This screenshot was modified to show both parts of the rainbow simultaneously; it looks pretty much exactly the same as actual hardware -- just less flickery.
