Some people like to say the internet is forever. Unfortunately, it’s not. I recently needed to track down a 256 color Windows system palettes from the Windows 95/98 era. In less than 20 years, the internet has all but forgotten what the color palette might have been.
This is my best attempt at reconstructing it from various pieces of information I was able to find around the web. This is a true-to-color gif image, so the color values haven’t been corrupted by downsampling.
The actual color values can be downloaded here.
