If you want to play the game, you'd have to download the source
rpm for the sis driver and look for the place it prints
the "illegal horizontal timings" message and see what data
it is really checking and where that came from and maybe find
some place that can influence it - loads of fun if you have
nothing better to do :-).

Short of that there might actually be a sis man page that
describes options you can set in xorg.conf to tell the driver
things (like maybe ignore what you imagine to be the horizontal
timing limit).
Ugh! My wife won't like to hear about me spending my time on that. But, if I don't have any other choice....

Another option might be submitting a bugzilla entry against Xorg to inform the developers that X has and should work with these settings, and thus Xorg has a bug.
They might already know which line to change. :)

Filed Bug# 22499 for this problem.
