Post Color Swatches for CC Palette
Just load up the .aco(s) you require in photoshop, and you're good to go!



Included in the .rar:

CC Full.aco (All of the colors)

CC Blue.aco (All of the blue colors)

CC Green.aco (All of the green colors)

CC Red - Yellow.aco (All of the red, orange, and yellow colors)

CC Greyscale.aco - (All of the greyscale colors)

HOWTO: (Depicted with the greyscale swatch at first)
Image
Image
(if you wanted more than one swatch you'd click load instead of replace)
Image
(my photoshop is rather old)

And yes, I know that the indexed image you're working on "fixes" color hue.
This is easier, and you can switch between colors you need instantly.

Here are Duh102's GiMP Palettes. In this pack is the Basic Cortex Command palette and the Material / Terrain Palette.

If you can start it up, it's pretty easy to put a sprite in palette. You'll need this Gimp palette file and the location where Gimp stores its palettes on your computer. Place the palette file within that location, restart Gimp, and open up the sprite you want to put in palette.
Go to Image, Mode, Indexed (you may need to go to RGB if Photoshop put it in it's own palette already), and the radio button "Use Custom Palette". Click on the little gradient button below the name of the palette, and select the Cortex Command palette (should be the first at the top). Make sure the check box "Remove unused colors from colormap" is unchecked, then hit ok. Your colors might be modified a little as Gimp moves them to the closest color in the palette. Save it, then try it in Cortex again.

If you don't know where your palette folder is, do the following. With Gimp open, click on edit and preferences. Scroll down the list and click on Palettes and look at the folder listed in the box at the right. Go to this folder and drop the palette file in, then restart Gimp. Your palette should be enabled now.

Well, there isn't much more I can add to this. I could make preset swatches for types of mods (say aliens, robots, humans and whatnot)

.....but I don't feel like it and it wouldn't be worth the effort.....

Sorry for my double post, but the attached file doesn't exist anymore. Here, it's the same file.


(this post is useless now, it's back on the first post.)

Does this do away with the need to paste it into a paletted cc sprite?
If so this is what I've needed for a year.

Sadly not tea. However, I think your problem is that you don't save it as a .bmp in index mode. If you're using photoshop, click on the image menu, click mode, and choose make sure that you're using an 8bit index format. Hope it helps, sorry if I completely misunderstood your question.

In GIMP you can just load the palette image and import palette from image.
