Windowed Mode? WTF?

by XenoSean on Sat Jun 20, 2009 7:58 pmPostQuick Link PostView Single Post

Well, I'm trying to install Torment on my new laptop and I'm having trouble getting it to run. It seems to have installed correctly, but every time I actually start the program it says:

"Your desktop is not set to 16-bit color depth. As a result, movies will not play in windowed mode. In addition, many spell effects and other special graphical features may not work properly. It is suggested you run in full-screen mode or switch your desktop to 16-bit color depth before running in windowed mode Continue at current color depth? Y\N?"

If I pick yes, it seems to start up, then comes up with a wordless error message with a red X and an OK button, which closes the window.

If I pick no, it seems to start up, then asks me the exact same color-depth question again.

Any idea how to get it to run in full-screen?

also, what is the native resolution of your laptop's display?
