RA1 Strange color


Recommended Posts

Hi all,


I still have problems with the inverted colours, I tried http://www.cnc-comm.com/community/index.php?topic=711.0. Which only fixes it partly.

After the fix,

- the intro movie has strange colours,

- after you alt-tabbed the game, the menus have strange colours again. If you go to a new menu or close the current menu, it's OK again...

The rest is OK, but it's still not totally fixed.

I'm using Windows 7 Ultimate 64Bit..

Can't be helped. The DirectX compatibility mode WORKS, but if you go do unintended things (for a fullscreen app) like alt-tabbing out, it's logical that it can mess up again.


Also, I'm pretty sure Pichorra specifically mentioned that it didn't always work on the intro video.

CAN be helped. It happens on all old games on Windows 7. To fix it you must:

1.run game and minimalize it (alt + tab)

2.KILL PROCESS: explorer.exe

3. alt + tab for maximalize

It ALWAYS help (I playing on Windows 7 too). When u finish playing run explorer.exe proccess again.


Sorry for my bad english but I think you understand it ^^

I was pleasantly surprised--everything ran well when I installed The First Decade CD. However, I'm experiencing the same problem with the graphics; will try the aforementioned solution and see if it works (and I will mess around with the screen colors in the control panel).


EDIT: I merely changed my screen to 16-bit (and played around with the screen size a bit) and finally found perfect graphics.


Now I have a different problem...must look for appropriate thread.
