I was sent a procedure that allowed me to specify the red green and blue of a color. unfortunatly, all I have is a scribbled down copy of it and I cant seem to make it work, can someone tell me if the following is correct and how to use it:

PROCEDURE Setcolor(Col,R,G,B:Byte);
BEGIN
          port [$03c8] := Col;
          port [$03c9] := R;
          port [$03c9] := G;
          port [$03c9] := B;
END;

I think it should work. Do you use it in textmode or graphmode?

Hi there !

The procedure is right !

How ya can see, it expects 4 arguments : COL is the number of the VGA - Color you wanna change. R is the part of RED you wanna put into this color, G stands for GREEN and B for blue.

For example :

If ya wanna change color 11 known as LightCyan you have to do it
as followed :

{Text message in normal color 11}
SetColor(11, 15, 32, 19);
{Set color 11 with its new properties again}
{write the message again}

Now you have your own color, defined
