look for a file .ini and try if you can change the 32 bits colour to 16 bit colous

so you are looking for a file called default.cfg (I believe when the game runs it will create the other .cfg files). Look in this file for something like 32 bpp or 32 bit color, and try changing it to 16. But as Nightbird stated, this might be no-go due to the texture size limitations.

You have to look for a file with this extension: .pak or .pak3 (I don´t remember) and open them with winrar or winzip, then look for a file compatable with microsoft excel and open it with microsoft word, then, you have to modify it to run in 16bit

I don´t remember, I did myself in the demo although at the end I couldn´t get it working, I think that the entire game can, anyway, in two or three days, I´ll get the game and I´ll try it

Doesn't it have a "safe mode" shortcut?
Try starting the game this way...
If it run, change the color depth and load it by the normal shortcut
If it dont... well, buy another card :(
