Just pick colors a bit more muted than (255,255,0) and (255,0,0) in the various permutations.

Possible choices include
#D15600 (muted orange)
#CC0000 (muted red)
#008C00 (dark green)
#6BBA70 (olive)
#3F4C6B (slate blue)

Just do a web search for color palettes.

The 7DRL's are clear, but I don't find the others very useful as they stand. And I'm afraid I don't really have any good suggestions.
I do have my disagreements with the way those statuses are assigned in RogueBasin in some respects, but I think it's useful enough just to know that you aren't likely to be able to play an alpha for very long without problems and there probably won't be a great deal of replay value in most 7DRLs.

The problem with NPPAngband was that there's only one RogueBasin page for the last stable release (0.4.1) and the current beta release. As the list is for recent updates the latter is more appropriate.

I suspect the FAAngband page was down as beta simply because 0.3.6 doesn't look much like the version number of a finished game. I've changed that and a few other pages, but basically I've never really been that put off by things being called 'beta' when it comes to games.

If it was that easy to pick colours I'd be an interior designer. I've put up an alternative set here, but I can't have the alpha colour being too close to the beta colour. I also think that if the green's that dark then the text probably needs to be white.
