Your problem is that the correct video driver is not installed and therefore cannot use all the video RAM.(the XP version of the video driver won't work with Win98).
When you adjust to True color at a higher resolution it drops to a lower resolution because it has insufficent video RAM, but you will get a higher screen resolution at a 16 bit color because it requires less memory (video RAM).
Install the Win98 driver for the graphics card and then it can use the full video RAM at a higher screen resolution with 32 bit color.
Most computers are 32 Bit computers. Unless you just got a new computer with either Windows XP or Vista, then you must have a 32 bit computer.
Just go back and get the 32 bit download and install it. But do this to install it.
Disconnecting the Camera from the USB port and reinstall
the software program. When the program asks you to connect the
camera to the USB port, do so and it should work.
Hope this helps. Bud
Have you tried adjusting your resolution? To maximize the quality of video/picture that your webcam can capture, Turn the resolution into 1.3megapixel. Adjusting the resolution is by clicking the arrow above the Video Option.
Try disconnecting the Camera from the USB port and reinstall
the CD or Downloaded software program. When the program asks you
to connect the camera to the USB port, do so and it should work.
Hope this helps. Bud
You will have to increase the referesh rate first and then go into the game and reset the resolution. The resolution bit is secondary. If increasing the refresh rate works, then you dont have to change the resolution :)

I had this problem on my PC and I tried everything from updating drivers to re installing the software and updating my graphics card but nothing seemed to work.
And then as a last resort I right clicked on the icon on my desktop and chose properties and clicked on the Compatability tab and unchecked on display settings Run in 640x480 screen resolution.
This worked and did not affect the webcam in anyway.
