- 24-bit color (True Color)
- 32-bit color (Deep Color)
Changing this setting
This CVar requires a UI reload. In-game, type the following
/console gxDepthBits setting /console gxColorBits setting /console gxRestart
Alternatively, you can exit wow, open the Config.wtf file, and add the following line:
SET gxDepthBits setting SET gxColorBits setting
Notes on 16-bit setting
As of 3.1, 16-bit is no longer a valid setting in the Interface dropdown menu. However, if you still need to use this setting due to a very low-end graphics card, you can via the in-game macro:
/console gxDepthBits 16 /console gxColorBits 16 /console gxRestart
Be aware that this setting does NOT save when you shut down the game, and you'll have to run these lines every time you log in.
