Help Workbench Colors question

I have an Amiga 1200 with 68030 Blizzard Card and 16 Mb of memory.
The Amiga is connected to a BenQ BL912 Monitor flickerfree through VGA Adapter.

My workbench 3.1 can not show on any resolution more than 256 Colors , how is it possible to show more colors ?

Thanks a lot friends

It's not. Perhaps you should get a PC instead.

Welcome to the forums!
That's a cool setup you have there, perfect for most things.

Please excuse idrougge, he doesn't have manners.

But he's right, you won't get more colors than that on an amiga wb screen without a graphics card, which for a1200 are rare and super expensive. (blizzard vision)

You can have more colors on screen with the HAM screenmodes, but you cannot use those modes for workbench.

It is possible to get Workbench use HAM modes. Problem is that icons woun't support HAM automatically. You would need to make HAM icons yourself.
