PAL Colors Darker?

Recommended Posts

I don't have a PAL system, but I noticed when testing in Stella 6.1, some PAL color equivalents I'm using appear to be darker at the same brightness value as the NTSC equivalent. Specifically, I am using some colors at a brightness of 2 to reduce the appearance of flicker, and those appear to be much darker on PAL. I ended up bumping any that used 2 up to 4 for my PAL60 version.  Here are some NTSC-> PAL equivalents that I found to be too dark on the PAL side in emulation:


$82 -> $D2

$02 -> $02

$42 -> $62

$62 -> $A2

$22 -> $42


Has anyone else observed this when finding color equivalents?
