Playing in windowed mode[message #268739] Wed, 22 December 2010 02:16 Go to next message

When i try and run JA2 in windowed mode (1.13 + ini editor), it says the color depth must be 16bpp or lower for it to work. I thought i fixed this by going into my control panel and changing the display settings from 32 bits to 16 bits. But this error still persists. Can someone please help me?

hmm try matching your desktop settings to the game settings. for example: rt click on desktop and set it to 16bit color and 800x600 size. then try launching the game windowed with the same settings. Some video cards are incompatible with some games when it comes to allowing the game to switch those settings. I'm sure the code guys can give you a more detailed reason why. I'm just keeping it simple.

I figured it out in the ja2.ini itself. I am running and there is nothing in the top right corner of the editor. Thank you for the quick response though. I found the setting in the file I was having problems with admin rights and saving the INI file but I fixed that. And then had to switch my computer settings to 16bit color.
