I'm surprised no one's mentioned this before, because I've had to deal with this issue for a VERY long time.
I can run MK Trilogy with no issues in DOSBox 0.74-3 Windows (especially with that modified UNIVBE file), but every time I run it on a Mac, the colors are completely screwed up! I'd show a screenshot of it, but I don't own a Mac computer, and where I live there's only one place where I can use Macs, and I don't get to visit the place very often.
Has anyone else had this issue but not spoken about it? What can be done to fix it?

It's a known issue affecting hi-color modes on Macs: NBA Live 97 on Mac

Is setting output to OpenGL a possible workaround, as alluded to in the bug report ?

All right, I did some research and found out that MKT DOS has a command line parameter where you force the game to run under a certain video mode.

So here's what I put in:
"mktril /video=8" to try and get it to run without high color.

This is what came up:
"startup_MGL.......
320 x 400 VGAX 256 color USER FORCED MODE will be used.
FATAL ERROR: Graphics error: Invalid mode for selected driver."

And here's what happened when I set it to "/video=16"
"startup_MGL.......
512 x 384 SVGA 256 color USER FORCED MODE will be used.
FATAL ERROR: Graphics error: Invalid mode for selected driver."

You think there's any way to fix the error?
