Running Vista Basic in 256 colours.......

  Tim1964 20:08 28 Sep 2007

I'm trying to get some old games running on my Vista Basic PC but it throws up an error message saying "...this program needs to run in 256 colours....".

In my Display properties options I only have 'Medium' (16 bit) and 'High' (32 bit). I have also tried using the compatibility mode to run as Win98 etc but this doesn't appear to do anything.

Any ideas?
