Old games have funny colors (16 colors?) artifacts under Windows XP and Windows Vista
Posted on 2007-11-24
I love playing old games on my $3,000.00 computer. Laugh at me if you'd like. :-)
The bottom line is that on all my old games like Fallout 2, Civilization III, Age of Empires II, and StarCraft the games have tearing and a lot of the colors (particularly in water) show up in 16 color colors. I have updated my Direct X to the latest and ensured that the graphics drivers are updated as well as all others. I have also tried running the programs in compatibility modes and none of it seems to make a difference.
I started experiencing this with XP. I am now running Vista Ultimate 32-bit. I have an nVidia GeForce 7900GTX with the latest drivers from nVidia's site. My PC has 4GB corsair RAM and is pretty much a workstation/gaming pc. I use it for work and play. Anybody have any ideas about how to get this fixed without keeping an old junker computer with Win 98 around on it to play these games?
Thanks in advance!
