Is anyone here colourblind, or know someone who is? I'm working on some alternate palette options for @krasten, and it'd be really super helpful if I could get some feedback on the colour choices from colourblind folks (preferably all three main types).

@gc i'm red-green colourblind, can't remember the exact type but i'd be happy to take a look

@xaphania Sweet, thanks. :) I've attached a pic of the main (unaltered) base palette I'm using right now. Could you let me know which colours on there are difficult to tell apart from each other?

@gc i can distinguish all of these pretty easily, the only ones i might have some trouble with is 0x54 Red and 0x56 Yellow if used together (also that colour name is confusing to me because it seems very.. not yellow)

@xaphania Oh, excellent. :) Are 5A, 5B, 5C, 5D and 5E fairly easy to distinguish from each other?

And yeah, 56 is an odd one, that's definitely an orange-brown shade. It's because the palette is based directly on the old CGA colours, and for technical reasons, 'dark yellow' always used to be shown as a sort of orange-brown mess rather than actual dark yellow.
