That isn't at all what happened - cloanto thought they had a licence to distribute P96, iComp disagreed, chaos ensued. That's not patent trolling from either side.

Palettes are a pain in the arse.


If you're doing dual play field, on ocs/ecs, you're limited to 8 colours per plane. You seem to be using 4 plane bitmaps though - I suspect this is the issue.
