Moto Racer needs 16 bits screen mode

Postby legluondunet » 2019-1-20 @ 15:29

Hello,
I tried to launch Moto Racer with DGVoodoo2.
But when I launched it I have the error message: "Moto Racer needs 16 bits screen mode".
Is it possible to force 16 bits screen mode for a game with DGVoodoo?
Thank you for your help.

Surely. Some old games can launch only in 16 bits screen mode like Moto Racer 1 and 2. Is it possible to bypass this with DGVoodoo2?

Did you try Windows compatibility settings? On Windows 10 the option is called Reduced Color Mode.

You can select 8 or 16 bit but on Windows 7 and prior it might only be 8 bit IIRC. The Compatibility Toolkit could possibly help in this case.
