    Is there a way to modify a standard Fallout 2 color palette? I'd like to change just one maybe two colors to my needs. Is there a tool to do that?

    What are you actually trying to do?

    I'd like to create a new ammo based on 5mmjhp.frm image. To do so I need to edit a few colors in this img palette to make my new ammo frm look good.

    You should create a new .pal file (same name and folder as the new .frm file) for the inventory graphic, if you really have to. Editing the global .pal file is a really bad idea.

    Don't know how to make .pal files with Gimp, etc. but it should be possible. @NovaRain did it a few months ago.

    OK so if I'll create a pal file with the same name as the frm file that pal will be used specially and only for that frm?

    Change the colors of the global palette, bad idea, it will affect the entire game.
    Forget about it.

    You sure? I did some tests with it a while ago, and it seems to work.

    100% confidence. Two different palettes cannot be used/loaded at the same time. Besides, there is no special support for this.
    For files such as death and help images, the current global palette is unloaded and a new one is loaded.
