I really wish I could get this game to work. I have tried all the work around suggested in this post with no luck. The intro video plays fine and looks fine. but once I get into the menu or the game, the colors are completely messed up. I am running window 7 64bit. Not sure what else to try at this point.
Same problem here. Nothing works. I wonder if there is a difference with ATI and Nvidia graphic cards. I have a Win7 64bit and ATI card, so maybe their drivers are different from nvidia. Just a guess because I can't figure anything other at this point.
ATI/Nvidia has nothing to do with it. I have Win7 64-bit and an Nvidia card, the "pause" bat file only worked the first time, and asking me to restart with a CD from then on. Just for S&G, I took out my Nvidia card, put in my old 6950 - same problem. Definitely an issue with Win7 64-bit.
Just checked the launchers, and now, for some reason, the bat file still doesn't work right, but the shortcuts created by the installer work fine. I have no clue why, however.
Okay, now none of them work again. This is ridiculous.
Decided to try F4LL0UT's registry fix. Downloaded and unzipped it, clicked on the 64-bit registry and now the GOG launchers work fine. No color errors right from the first menu. I'm not sure why he thought it wouldn't work for the digital download, but anyways, F4ll0UT deserves a cookie.
