This forums very quiet and soon Ill have all the posts.
I am trying to get the colours brown and purple on the screen but all my uneducated attempts have gone awry.
Do I need to change a setting or redefine another color?
Any help would be great,though Ill keep pluggin away at it.

Yes, you'd have to redefine a color via init_color() if none of the existing ones is satisfactory.
"Brown" is traditionally assigned to dark yellow, and is made by upping the red quotient (where a pure yellow would have equal parts red and green). "Purple" is some combination of red and blue, which is what you currently have in COLOR_MAGENTA; if you want some other shade, you can adjust the red and blue components as desired.
yeah that helps,
thanks,your a legend.
