CGA and EGA Dashboard Palettes

Can anyone explain how the alternative CGA and EGA palettes in the dashboard files work?  I'm referring to the !cg0 and !eg0 resources in the STDA*.PVS and STDB*.PVS files.  The Stunts Wiki briefly mentions them, however it doesn't provide any detailed information.

I'm currently working on a custom car and while hardly anyone will be using these graphic modes these days, I would still like to configure them correctly.  Any help on this would be greatly appreciated.  Thanks! :)


I *think* that these two sections contain a list of 128 or 256 bytes that serve as a translation table. For each material (or colour), a CGA or EGA colour is given (0 to 4 for CGA and 0 to 15 for EGA). This is a hypothesis and I have not tested it. If somebody knows better, please add what you know!
