Default just because I'm anal

NES graphics are not 8-bit. 8-bit graphics imply a depth of 256 colors. The NES only has 64 available colors (many of which are repeats), and each 8x8 tile can only use 4 colors... so NES graphics are closer to 2-bit than 8-bit [img]/wwwthreads/images/icons/tongue.gif[/img]
