I had not tried Myst in awhile. It used to work ok for me (I have a 
version that claims to be for Win3.11 and Win95, 256 colors), but 
testing just now, the colors are severely messed up. It does generate 
messages about:
fixme:x11drv:X11DRV_desktop_SetCurrentMode Cannot change screen BPP from 
32 to 8
I am pretty sure I never saw those messages when the colors on Myst were 

I don't think I do anything special, though I have this in my 

"Managed" = "N"
"Desktop" = "640x480"

"Windows" = "win98"
