"Unsupported 16 bit resource" has nothing to do with colors.
What is it you want to do ?

For creating DCR use Image Editor. I think a lot of colors doesnt work in Delphi. I think it isnt necessary.

For creating res with more colors you must use the command line brcc32. Make a text file with .rc extension, where you put the res instructions. An example :


Supposed this file named myicon.rc then we use

brcc32 myicon.rc

Its creates myicon.res.
