[ut2004] Unreal Tournament 2004 Software Render Problems

I looked through the UT2004.ini that was in the .ut2004demo/System directory in my home directory. I do not see any field that has anything to do with bitdepth. Also, when I try to change the bit depth from Unreal Tournament, the bitdepth menu is locked. I am using an i810e integrated video card, which only supports 16,24, (and some lower bit depths). X is configured to run at a bit depth of 16 (which is what Unreal Tournament says itself is set at). What is interesting is that when I edit my X configuration files, and change it from 16 bit to 24 bit color depth, when I run Unreal Tournament 2004, the colors work perfectly. I do not think that this is a bit depth problem, because when I run it in windowed mode (in 16 bit mode), the colors are still messed up (including all of the rest of the screen). When I click outside of UT2004, the colors are fixed, and stay fixed when I click back into Unreal Tournament 2004. Does anyone have any idea why it might do this? Thanks.

However, allthough the game starts and runs correctly, the colors are completely messed up. I am not quite sure what is going on, and I have not been able to find anything on the Internet by someone who has had a similar problem. I am sorry if someone has already sent a similar message; I just joined the list. Thanks in advance.
