#1097 closed change (wontfix)

Drop 16-colour support

Description

AFAIK only main-gcu might not support 256 colours, and then only if termcap tells it not to. If d_m were to write a handy howto for people to ensure that their terminal setup is capable of displaying 256 colours, we could do away with 16-colour support altogether. This is relevant for #1092 at least.

So things like the Linux console don't currently support 256 colors (and may never) so I'm not sure this is a good idea. I'd be interested in takkaria's opinion, other devs opinions, and possibly even a poll.

  • Resolution set to wontfix
  • Status changed from new to closed

Ah. I opened the ticket because I thought linux consoles *could* support 256 colours. If they can't, I'm happy to close it. Sorry.
