Is there any other payment method? My payment always fails.

No idea why but I'm using a standard itch.io method???

This is a really sweet tool, but I can't open .pal files that work in other software.
UPDATE: I tried to open a PAL file I downloaded from lospec and it did not work (perhaps I modified the file at one point). But, the PAL I wanted ended up already being included with the download file, so I got what I needed afterall :-)


Yeh it's the Microsoft palette format that it accepts, it doesn't check headers or anything to determine other palette types. I should probably look into this. Glad you found your required palette anyway though lol.


Now supports JASC / RIFF palette format ;)

WOO can't wait to give it a shot!


It's not a bad tool, I like what I'm seeing so far. I'd love to have the ability to punch in hex codes or be able to manually punch in RGB/CMYK color codes. As fiddling around with the scales can be a bit time-consuming.


I'll definitely take this into consideration for a future build :-)

Thanks. :)

You need to agree to the new terms and conditions to get a business paypal from which you can receive payment. Please make this buy-able.

Thank you for the heads-up Joel. I think this has now been done 😋
