The problem is not in JSON.

Native Javascript supports 2^52 (or so) integer values, so every UInt32 value should fit
if written properly.

FPC's JSON supports Int64 and even QWord in FPC, so a UInt32 is definitely supported.

If the colors (a UInt32) is currently written as Longint (signed 32-bit) 
then of course a range check will follow, and this needs to be fixed.

The easiest solution is simply to read/write it as Int64.
