Greetings Fellow Emulators,

We're doing a project to put old 1980's computers into public service use rather than filling up landfills with them. We're making the project web site look like old monitors, but we don't have the right colors for some of them. #33333 works fine for the black background, #CCCCCC works fine for normal white and #FFFFFF works find for high intensity white. It's the green, amber, yellow, and orange ones we're not sure of, both the regular colors and high intensity.



Here's the draft page for the project:

Here's a color picker that might help:

Thanks for whatever help you can be on this.

I don't have my old mono amber/green displays hooked up so I can't provide the info for good color matches but that screen flicker 'feature' sure is annoying...

MAME... better than sliced bread.

Try #00AF00 and #AF7F00, I'll look up the colors Dapple uses later and try to get back to you.
