Have you tried following the instructions posted by Grendel Man at Creatures Caves
? If you've already tried to download the update, you may need to uninstall and reinstall.

The best idea, I think, is simply ignore any messages about updates (there isn't any, obviously) and change your shortcuts so they bypass the update check.
To do this, right-click on your desktop shortcut/main menu link/whatever and select "properties." Underneath "target," you'll see a file path - it should read something along the lines of "X: \Program Files\Docking Station\InstallBlast.exe." Change "InstallBlast.exe" to "engine.exe" (without quotations, of course).
The 16-color option is rather annoying. To access this, you should be able to right-click on the desktop, choose Screen Resolution, click on Advanced settings, then List All Modes, and the 16-color option for your screen resolution should be there. You can also visit Here
to see screenshots and more information.
If you play in fullscreen mode, I believe you don't need to change your color settings. There are also a few suggestions out there to avoid the hassle of manually switching back and forth. I've never tried any myself, but you can find some suggestions Here
Good luck! Hopefully
