Question: Whats the proper way to handle palettes in SDL? See, I'm doing this thing where I load a bunch of bitmaps (through various gzip and rwops methods) and then convert them to hardware surfaces, so I can copy rectangles off the bitmaps and onto the display surface. Now, the problem is the palette (which I also load through various xml means) loads fine, and all checks I've done into surface->format->palette->colors seems to match up, just they display all screwed up. The only thing I can guess is theres a color mismatch somewhere (even though they're all 8bit surfaces). Anyway, what I want to know is what the official and common sense proper way is to do this stuff. Also, I don't want anyone telling me not to use palettes.
