No problem here.

Yes it don't work,
because you speak about frame buffer (named Color buffer on traces) when you speak about 16bpp. I spoke about depth buffer

Yes, but not 32bpp for frame buffer
only for depth buffer (usually Z-buffer)

>(e.g. Jedi Academy, gl-117, even tuxracer makes problems).

Yes because game expect 32bpp for Depth buffer and if game try to read directly into this buffer you'll have some problems
