Can I change color setting ?

By MiracleMax ·
I have a NEC AMD 450 mhz k6-2 processor with 128MB of RAM running Win98.

Now for my question:

My kids have several games that require 256 colors in order to run. And even a few games that require 16 bit color to run. When they want to playone of these games, I have to change the monitor color setting to the appropriate value.

What I would like to do is create a file that would do the following:

1. change the monitor color setting to 256 colors.
2. start the game.
On exit from the game:
3. change the monitor color setting back to
16 bit.

This may be possible using a utility that sits in the system tray,the utility is MultiRes,a free program that can be downloaded from FileWorld or the Entech's web site

The other option would be to create a batch file using notepad

Example
Start /w multires /640,480,8
Start /w [program you wish to launch]
multi res /800,600,24
cls

This cannot work with games using a cd-rom for futher info see the following
