its not even started yet but i wanted to get this working at least.

Well I'm glad that all the work I did was useful to someone. To my knowledge this is the only accurate guide for these files. Everything I found didn't explain the monochrome format and they were wrong about the color, they just assumed it worked like other formats.

Those look great! Something keeps bothering me however, your first image color 0B is showing as white, did you change the color for testing purposes or did I get something wrong with how the colors are shown?

Actually color one was correct as the value for Alpha was 0, I was too lazy to fix it in my chart. It is the only one that doesn't have the alpha as F
