Strange Color Fix (For older computer games)
« on: August 04, 2013, 01:12:14 PM »
So, I've had the Interplay Fallout Collection for a while. However, I've never managed to fix the strange coloration issues.

Anyone know a quick fix for this kind of issue?


EDIT: Fixed it myself. ^__^

*Brownies just 'cause*

Well,  this only works for Fallout 1 and 2, and I don't know if it's exclusive to the collection, but if you go into the ddraw file in the games' install directory (using wordpad). You can look at the configuration. Once there you need to scroll down to the graphics heading and look for "mode=0".

Change the 0 to a 4 and you're golden. Hit save. Do it on both, and it works fine for Windows 7.

As always make a backup of the ddraw if you're not sure. :)

What's worse is when they're right save for one small detail and the internet picks this one time to not mercilessly correct the original poster. :3

Inkidu, it was a polite jab requesting you to post your solution. : )

There I posted what I did. Sorry, this is kind of the first time I ever actually got one up on a computer person I suppose. :\

Thank you much. Especially since I might need the info. I haven't started playing them yet, but I have both games from Steam. :D

Well, there's a good chance Steam has fixed the problem. Also, I don't know if you can access the proper file if you get it through Steam either.

Start one up and see what happens. :)
