Added a new feature to view the color palette of images that have multiple palettes. This was often used to display more colors than actually possible. To view these simply move the mouse over the image and the palette will change when you move from one palette segment to the next.

I also added a new category to the front page so that these images can be found more easily. Simply look for "Special" and select the "Copper" category (it's called Copper since the palette changing was usually done by the Copper). I also added the categories "Animated" and "Color Cycling" so that these images can also be directly selected.

Last but not least I found out that the title for Starray (also in the Copper category) was actually done by Arno Seiler and that the title for Aegis Sonix (also in the Color Cycling category) was done by Jim Sachs.


Despite only having 16 colors in Hires Rico was able to add more colors by switching the blue colors to cyan halfway down the image, creating an image with a total of 23 colors.


Fighting more with the restrictions of the Atari ST the game over screen would have actually been possible without copper effects but this way the image was made to fit inside 16 colors by switching the palette between the green part of the snakes head and the fiery red mouth.
