Just bought Rise of Nations Gold Edition and installed it on a Windows
XP + SP 2 machine. When I tried to start the game, it said:

Rise of Nations cannot run with the monitor display mode set to 256
colors. Please change monitor display to 16-bit color or greater.

But the machine is configured to run at 1024x720 with 32-bit colors!
Does anyone know how can I get around this?

Make sure your graphics drivers are up-to-date and if there's any patches for the game make sure you install them.

The game could be misinterpreting the data it's requesting about colour depth.
