We're using our 1 nibble (4 bits) per channel -GRB color definitions... actually the Gameboy Color has 5 bits per channel!

Unfortunately the black and white Gameboy cannot do any real sort of color - it only has 4 shades 0,1,2 and 3 (0=light, because all pixels are off)... I did try to write a converter, but it doesn:t really work well. As the GBC tiles have 4 colors, and there are 4 shades, we'll map each color to a shade - either dark->light or vice versa!
