  • by AlexeyK on 19.1.2010 : www : download : forum thread : picture :
  • color change, saturation
  • These palettes makes the GeneRally world look somewhat nicer in my opinion.
    This look comes from the following changes: Sand - it is more yellow, less pink; Grass - it is now greener and colorful. Soft Walls - less saturated, less flashy red; Hay Bales - now in light gold color, not green; Water - "foam on water" - my implementation of nielske's idea

What is a palette?

A palette is a file with extension "pal" that allows you to change the in-game colors in order to create a specific atmosphere (fog, rain, autumn, night,..) or just small changes to the environment (blue kerbs, grey wooden planks, darker grass,...)

Using palettes...

In GeneRally 1.2+ you can change the palettes in-game (also during a race). Simply access the "advanced options" menu and select a palette of your choice.

Since you cant change the palettes in-game, you need to change them before starting GR. Below you'll find a list of various programs that do the job for you:

  • Palette Changer created by JamesF1 (James Burgess) and AlexeyK. Before running the program make sure you place all your palettes in the (new) "Palettes" sub-folder of the main GR directory, otherwise the program wont work correctly. Thanks to James permission you can download the Palette Changer directly from this site.
  • GeneRally Options created by our GeneRally wizard Juan. Its a great program that allows you to change all kind of GR options including palettes. You can download the program from Juan's generally site.
  • Palette Changer created by majortom has an interesting feature which is a preview of the palette effects upon a track. In this way you can actually see the changes in a track before starting GR. Make sure you read the readme file before using the program. Thanks to majortom you can download the program directly from this site.

Creating palettes...

Before creating your own palette you'll need a program that is able to read and write files with a .pal extension. GeneRally uses the Microsoft format, so palettes created using other formats cannot be used in GeneRally.

  • Thanks to our GR wizard Strava who created the GRPalEdit program, you can now easily create your own palette. Download the GRPalEdit_V100 directly from this site. If you are having problems running the program (some .dll missing) than I suggest you download the beta version (contains all needed .dlls) of the program and install it. Than just overwrite the beta.exe file with the v100.exe.
  • You can of course use other programs (like Paint Shop Pro for example) that reads and writes palettes in MS format.

Usefull info/data

  • Strava made a readme file explaining which ingame objects are affected by specific palette colors.
  • ACM contribute his documentation on how the water colors works.

IMPORTANT: If you decided to use someone else's palette as a base for your own, make sure you check the author's permissions before releasing it to the public (submitting to this site). Usually reading the readme file inside the palette zip reveals the necessary info. If there is no readme, try to get in touch with the author through forums or contact me.
