I have windows 7 64 bit and tried running worms 2, the game installs/launches fine, the menus are small and windowed but the actual gameplay is full screen (odd and not sure if itt's supposed too but the game plays so, weird but ok) ,

Game itself runs just fine or seems to for as long as I've played, but as soon as I exit the game the colours of my screen are all messed up, and I know it happens with other older games (if the colours need to be adjusted) and is normal, but it does not revert back once the game is exited.

The computer also semi-crashes, I can move the mouse and close any open windows if they are running, and access control panel via the keyboard, but start menu and everything else is either gone or non-responsive, and the only way I can get it back to normal is to restart the computer....and it only happens after launching and exiting this specific game.

does anyone have any ideas, or know of any patches? Any help appreciated.

I have the same system and had the same problem.

Running "frontend.exe" in "Windows XP Service Pack 3" compatibility mode made it work for me. (Find it in the worms2 install folder, right click, properties, compatibility tab)

Thankyou will try this :)
I have Windows 10 64 bit and it also does not work, even with compatibility mode with "Windows XP Service Pack 3", I tried with the frontend.exe file, it does not work.
