I thought that some video cards actually support automatic 8->32 and 16->32
blits. In any case, the X server will emulate it. But truly, fix the game.
If the game is so picky that it wants a particular colour depth, it probably
wouldn't work under xnest anyway.

startx -- vt8 or something like that. See the man page.
