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,...)
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:
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.
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.
