Issue: Risk of Rain Won't Boot Due to Color

    I've run into some trouble since I just started to run the game. I try to launch the game but I'm greeted with a white box in the middle of the screen and the message, "This program requires 16-bit (High Color) or 32-bit (Fully Color) mode. Please change this in your display properties and run again." Hitting the "OK" button just closes the program. This has never happened before, nor have I changes my color settings since I last played. I tried to reinstall to no avail. Anyone know how to fix this?

    Version: Steam - latest Risk of Rain version (I believe it's 1.2.8 from a quick search)
    OS: Windows 8.1 (64 bit)
    Nothing has changed that I would know of since the last time I booted the game. It wasn't long ago either. I believe I last played the game a week or two ago.

    I've attached the image of the error with the white screen to the thread if anyone wants to take a look.

      bkroo Yeah, You!

      If you're posting bug reports, especially for games with multiple versions/operating systems/releases, you generally also want to include info such as:

      * Which version of the game is it? (Steam, dev website, version number)
      * What OS are you running?
      * What changed since last time you played (new computer? etc).

        Updated the thread. I totally forgot to include the info - thanks for the reminder.
