Monitor display mode 256 colours Tags: PC gaming Monitors Display Windows XP Video Games Last response: December 31, 2009 4:17 PM in Video Games Share Anonymous Monitor Authority December 31, 2009 9:44:35 AM Hi, 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?
