I have a Windows 7 x86 VM which I run in Virtual Box. Sometimes, when I play Alpha Centaurie, it ends with the VM only displaying 256 colors. When I go to Screen Resoltution, I only see: enter image description here

I tried rebooting the VM, but that never helps. Playing Aplha Centaurie again sometimes helps.

Is there a way to enable True Color Mode again?

I found the solution. I have to go to Advanced settings and click on List all Modes enter image description here. Then a listbox open where I can selecta True color mode enter image description here

Thanks, I needed that! –  DCookie Mar 9 '13 at 22:02
