    Help me pick CGA color mode!

    So, CGA has more color palettes than you’d think! Here are the default ones:


    First mode is the standard CGA mode as you know it, it’s most widely used because it looks best on b/w monitors.
    Second mode colours are devoid of blue component, and appear much darker on b/w screens
    Third mode is ‘undocumented’ but I actually stumbled on it by accident. It has some quirks but it looks nice.

    Switching them in-game is quite tricky, so I’d rather stick to one. Which one should I choose?

      Number 2 is making me thinking about FIRE.
      Number 1 is more like COLD.
      Nmmber 3 is… 3D GLASSES MODE ?

      I would go for third too. First one is too seen and second one just look likes vomit. :D

      the third matches the title the best imho

      Second and Third are good. But the best is first – It’s classic.
