GOBLIIINS: Atari ST version color palette

Description

Although both, Atari ST and PC EGA version shares the
same data, the ST version has a different palette.
I´ve attached a sample:

In fact originally the same disks worked for atari and
pc, as the atari was able to read pc disk and they
included both executables, but ScummVM always takes
the data as EGA version.

Maybe suport to the original PC EGA version could also be added (it's just a palette change).

Eugene, shouldn't it be relatively easy to implement this? The choice could be made via the --render-mode switch.

Yes, I looked into it right when it was submitted. But the problem is that palette is set by the scripts. I started to look into EGA code recently, so, perhaps I'll get more information on how to implement this.

Any news on this?
If the data files are really identical, then they should have had a way in the executable to override the palette, right? Can't we just add some code to the opcode which reads palette data from the data files to override them?

Or maybe the aplette wasn't really different, just the way the computer rendered it was? Or what else is going on here?
