Windows 7 Colour Fix for AoK:TC

WINDOWS 7 COLOUR FIX FOR AOK:TC

If you have problems with Windows 7 messing up the colours in Age of Kings: The Conquerors, turning the grass neon sparkled and the water brown, this utility is the solution for you. This file contains a batch file which fixes the colour problems by exiting explorer.exe before the game starts, and automatically restarting it once you close AoK:TC.

Put the batch file, named "The Conquerors" in the 'age2_x1' folder in the main AoE2 folder on tyour harddrive. The file *has* to be put here or the effect will not come. You can then add a shortcut to the batch file onto your desktop, the Start menu, or wherever you want it.

When you want to play AoK:TC without the colour issues, open the batch shortcut or the original batch file, NOT the original shortcut, to start the game.


DOES THIS WORK ON VISTA TOO?
According to one chap who commented on it, yes it does!


LOLOL, WHY DID YOU TAKE A PICTURE OF YOUR SREEN WITH A CAMERA AND NOT "PRINT SCREEN"!?
Because pressing "print screen" gave me a screenshot with the correct colours, so to have an example of the wonky colours I had to use a camera. :P


Hope this can be of some help!

Is there any way of making this work so you can use Mod Packs with it? If so How?
Wuzzex Well, I have a problem with the utility. When I've launched the .bat file, and open AOE:TC it's good! The utility works in the start, but when I've played for a while (20-30 minutes) the colors get F-ed up again. If I exit AOE:TC the utility is still running(toolbar, icons not showing).

So.. how do i Fix?

Computer Specs:
Windows 7(64-Bit)
neilkaz What do I have to move to my screen so that I can just click on the .bat icon and not have to go thru several directories to get to it?

Anyhow..this fix does work fine in win 7 64 bit.

thx .. neilkaz ..

Wuzzex, I'm afraid I don't know what's causing it. I run the same Windows version as you and I have never had that problem. :s

neilkaz, you put the .bat file in the "age2_x1" folder where you installed the game, and the you can make a shortcut to the .bat file on the desktop or start menu, or wherever you usually start the game from.
neilkaz Thx, Lord Basse..this is much easier now. I'd failed to realize "right click, create shortcut"

It is nice playing AOC on a high end new computer with a 24" monitor. That makes micro easier, but I may want to try higher resolution and will consult some of those threads although there seems to be some conflicting info and different methods.

Thanks for submitting this Lord Basse. I recently bought a new PC, Windows 7 and all, and this comes in handy. ;-)

You're welcome. ;)
marathon Thanks, Lord Basse! This worked for me.

But, you know, I am an ai scripter and I need to tab out all the time for ai editing. When I tab out, the colors are messed up on the desktop, not to mention that I can't tab out with the Windows button, but I have to do ctrl+alt+del.

This doesn't fix my scrolling bug, which happens sometimes.

I would rate it with 5 anyway. Simple, and it does the job.
