Windows 7 fix for running old games that use directdraw graphics
This is brilliant if you have any older games that use direct draw,as PAX IMPERIA EMIMENT DOMAIN. then this little program fixes it once and for all without the need for you to do anything but tell it to patch the game you want to play under VISTA OR WINDOWS 7.I have been trying to solve this graphics problem for months and the solution is here in this tiny little program
If link is unavailable just do a web search for w7ddpatcher and you will find other working links enjoy!
Program fixes broken colors under vista/Windows 7 with games using DirectDraw.
1. Press "Patch"
2. Choose "starcraft.exe" from your game folder
3. Close w7ddpatcher.
4. That is all, no silly scripts killing explorer.exe
How does it work? Author speaking:
<mudlord> it adds some entries to the registry for compatibility
<mudlord> It does not patch the EXE
<mudlord> it intercepts the directdraw ID, etc
<mudlord> source is in there
Works with other games exhibiting this issue (Fallout, Fallout 2, Diablo, etc),
