There are many different graphical LCD displays and most new displays can display in color. There are 8 bit and 16 bit displays. And beside the data bus width displays have different color resolution.

While high resolution is nice, it also means you need more data to display a pixel. The RGB8TO16() function converts an 8 bit RGB value into a 16 bit RGB value. This way you can use the bascom created BGC files.
