how to source palettes from different ROMs?

basically the title. I want to have more palettes for things like backgrounds, so i made palettes and saved them to ROM(5) but can’t seem to find a way to access them.

You have to copy the bytes from the ROM to the palette registers (see manual „Advanced topics“) using the COPY command.

... just remember, LowRes will only let you one set of palettes at a time... that is, you may only use 25 colors at a time... you cannot use 25 colors for sprites and 25 different colors for the backgrounds at the same time... 8x3+1 is your limit...

You can swap out color sets any time, and you may use code to edit any one color on the fly at any time, but you will always be limited to using only 25 colors at any one time...

Just an FYI, you can also swap out different font sets, and even swap out your entire graphic set, etc.. you can rather easily swap out many assets ;)

.. again, you may only use one asset at a time... ;)
