Ralphis tipped me off with a couple of cool images last night in IRC. Then I awake to a direct link to a Windows binary that I can beta test with!

Exciting times! Thanks! :)

So I decided to run a test. I replaced one of my textures with the 256 color palette applied to it, with one that still had all of it's colors. The problem is though, that unless I convert apply the palette to the image, it only shows up as black in this version of Odamex.

 For the note, I made sure to go into the settings and turn 32 bit color support on.
