zimz: I load this up, and it have a wierd colour scheme.

I use Windows 7, i have the same problem in C&C 1 and C&C Red Alert, but never found the solution.

But i search around, some other people seem to have same problem, they recommend to close explorer.exe in task manager, i did but with no luck.

Another funny thing, i wanted to make a screenshot with FRAPS to show what it looks like, but the screenshot looks fine!!! with no strange colors.

No, i am not going crazy...

Are you using the 32bit version or the 64-bit version of Windows 7? I have noticed during my time with the game that it runs best when you set the compatibility to Windows XP Service Pack 2 and run the game as Administrator.

Also, and this may seem to a be a silly question due to the age of the game, but have you updated your graphic card drivers?

Let me know if I can be of further help. If this problem persists then I would recommend sending us an email via the Support link for the game and ensure that your DxDiag file is attached so that we can get to the bottom of this problem.
zimz: Hello, and thank you for the reply.

I am using 64bit Win7 and i have the latest AMD drivers 13.1.

I have also tried all the compatibility settings possible. But none of them seems to make any difference

KKND Extreme, Command & Conquer and C&C Red Alert all share this problem :(

It seems to be some kind of DirectDraw problem.

You can try search for starcraft color fix and many topics pop up aswell.
Those aren't beta drivers by any chance?

Also, in some cases rolling back one or two driver releases may also help to solve the problem although I don't generally support doing that in case it messes up any other games.

To tell you the truth, this might be best solved by sending us an email to Support with any and all screenshots and your DxDiag in the email. Perhaps the more information we receive the better the chances we can solve this. thanks and sorry for the inconvenience.

As far as hex editing goes, I myself don't exactly know what needs to be done in order to properly utilize this fix. Our tech ninjas will know more than I do :D.

TheSHIBBIdude: Recently downloading this game but the colours are all messed up. Tried changing compatibility settings but still nothing. Any ideas? I'm running Win7 64 bit GeForce GTX 550 Ti with latest drivers?
Please write to our Support department as that issue you're experiencing may be a bit beyond simple fixes that I can offer on the forum. Thanks :D
