No its not you. 16 bit was as high as it would go. Remember too when the game was created. I'd LOVE to see it redone in HD....

but its ok to play even with 16 bit

There was a time where no game supported 32bit color.., and it was a good time..

Thnx for the answers guys, but I clearly remember that it was 32bit in my stolen version cause I finished it last year. And I can't select 3D accelerator, game just crashes, so I'm stuck with Primary fukken Driver. Any way to change that?

primary driver = 3d accelerator, the other options are only software modes, and no the game has always been max 16bit color

I think you can get 32 bit in the GoG version.

YES! I thought I played 32bit version. But that one was Torrent Edition

Put up a screen shot and show us any difference in the 32bit vs 16bit.

Hint:
You won't notice it in this game.

Hint: Noticed it right away, that's how this thread started. I you can't - sorry, visit doctors, difference is huge.

By the way, equal or not equal, if only the game could start in 32 bit mode, it wouldn't require the whole desktop to be using 16 bit when forced in windowed mode.

I'm looking suspiciously at PATCH.dll. Looks like a drop-in replacement for the DirectDraw DLL, complete with a GOG reference. Maybe if someone has the config.ini from the GOG version, things can be tinkered with.

Did I ever told you I love you? :3
There's no config.ini though.
Upon quitting the game, the 16-bit color remains on my screen. Everything is 16-bit now, and I can't seem to change it. o.o

GOG includes this config.ini file in their installers.
[Graphics]
InventoryFix=0
BlockBackbufferLocks=1
After some hex checking and guess work I think these could be parameters (more words strings) and sections (one word strings)

SingleCore
[Misc]
DisableDEP
ImproveTimerAccuracy
DebugMessages
ReduceSleeps
GraphicsPatch
[Graphics]
VsyncMode
InventoryFix
BlockBackbufferLocks
AtiFix
ReplaceMovies
[Movies]
SkipMovies
SyncMovies
LockMovies
ColorSwapMovies
UseVidMemeMovies
