It says "I.e. if you'll take a look at current 16bits games" on the main page. Should I upload a picture (or two) to show how ScummVM handles it now? -Clone2727 21:59, 23 January 2007 (UTC)

Mixed 8- and 16-bit graphics?

Is it absolutely necessary for the backend to be able to handle mixed 8- and 16-bit graphics at the same time? It seems to me that it would be easier/cleaner to have one (mandatory) 8-bit mode and one (optional) 16-bit mode. Possibly two separate classes. Perhaps mixed mode could be handled by a platform-independent layer in between? We might need a layer in between anyway to convert between different 16-bit colour formats.

Things could get hairy if you need to find the palette index for an on-screen colour, but that should be solvable. Eriktorbjorn 22:04, 29 December 2008 (CET)

No, HE games requiring 16bit color, use only 16bit palettes, and convert 8bit graphics internally. Kirben
