So there I was, stuck playing starcraft in crappy colors yet again, as it has always been during my beta testing of windows 7. For what ever reason, I decided to leave screen resolution dialog box open and what do you know- starcraft runs with its beautiful original colors.
If anyone knows what I'm talking about
Starcraft runs with bright turquoise colors
everywhere in the menu system. It looks rather psychedelic.
On vista, it intermittently happened, on Windows 7 it happens every time after the 1.16.00 patch installed.
Simply open up your screen resolution
window before playing, and leave it open. Doing so will result in perfect colors ever time. The same for vista, just open up personalize. I have no idea why this works, but I've tested it many many times- you just open the window- nothing else.
I've reported it to MS and Blizzard- blizzard quickly blew me off though with a "WINDOWS 7 IS NOT SUPPORTED" email.
Hmm... nope, don't care about spelling.
enjoy SC lol!
