24 Bit Color Quality Error From FS X Demo

Recommended Posts

Guest machammer

Can I please get some help. I'm concerned if I can fix this I will have the same problem with the final realease.After installation and I've installed it twice and get the same error. When I try to load FS X I can the message "Flight Simulator has detected one or more of your monitors is using 24 bit color quality. Flight Simulator is incompatible with this display mode.""Would you like to change your disply settings?"I can get past this message to load FS X.I've checked and I am using 32 bit color on both monitors. I did not have this problem with the first Demo. I have an ATI X600 video card.Has anyone else seen this problem?Thanks in advance to all who reply.BillEDIT Update Now I'm getting the same error message with the first demo after I've uninstalled the 2nd demo, reboot the system and installed the first demo. I had deleted the first demo before installing the 2nd demo.

I have an ATI X800XT PCIe card and never had this problem after installing the 1st and 2nd FSX demo's. Maybe it's a video card driver problem. I suggest you uninstall/reinstall your ATI card drivers.In addition, the ReadMe that came with the Demo(s) states, in effect, the same as I stated above. If the demo is having difficulties recognizing your video display, you need to download the latest driver version for your video card. Hope this helps.Best regards,Jim

Jim,Thanks for your reply.I took your advice and downloaded and installed the latest video drivers. Uninstalled FS X demo One. Reinstalled Demo One. Got the same error message.As I said in my previous post. I never had this problem with Demo One until, I uninstalled it and installed Demo Two. I wish I would here from one of the Aces people on this. It's like something some where is not getting removed in the uninstall program.Thanks again. Hopefully someone will come up with a solution. Hope I don't have the same problem with the release version.Bill

I am having the same problem. I have an Nvida 6800 and updated to the latest drivers, no change. I then loaded an older driver version. Same problem. I uninstalled and reinstalled the demo and still no luck. I did not have this problem with Demo 1. Has anyone had the same problem and come up with a fix? Also does anyone know if this is going to be a problem in the release version?--Randy

I am running XP Home with SP2.Compaq Presario SA4000T P4 3.6 with 3GB Ram.I'm also concerned that if I can't find a fix to this it may effect the retail version when I get it.Let me know if you find a fix and I will do the same.Regards.Bill
