Every sprite and background tile onscreen may select only one of its four allotted palettes at a time. 77 In more modern videogame consoles, palette values encode RGB data, the combination of reds, greens, and blues blended to create a composite color. 80 Though the shared color may seem like an arbitrary constraint, it is actually a clever means to “erase” portions of sprite tiles that are meant to be transparent.
