I figure SDL should have some way of mapping 256 colors to 32 bits such that the guest OS thinks its in 256 but it's still displayed on a full pallette, thus avoiding many of the issues we've experienced over the years trying to patch it up at other levels of emulation.

Do you have an example of where there is a problem with the 256 color mode? I haven't noticed any so far…

Come to think of it, that was a bug from 11 years ago, and I don’t recall seeing it recently either. Likely someone already fixed it, or we wouldn’t be able to play Escape Velocity. Never mind :)

It was probably from an era where OS X could still be set to 256 colours and this caused some conflicts… I seem to vaguely remember something like this but indeed those days seem to be long gone.
