I hate to show my ignorance, but if I make a .bat file with this in it, what do I name the .bat file? If I put it in the same folder as the .exe file, what will make the batch file run?

Can no one answer this seemingly simple question?

You can name it whatever you want as long as the extension is .bat

You run it by the good ol' double-click method.

Thank you profdlp, I'm sorry I'm not as expert at this stuff as many. I was under the impression that AoE would run this file somehow, but I guess that is backwards. Appreciate your time to answer.

I chased this issue a long time and found lots of quick fixes that work for some but not others. Then I found this guys blog and all is well. He explains why the video problem exists and discusses the various ways to work around it. The best solution is the program he wrote and shares.
His blog is long but worth reading.

Agreed

This is presumably something M$ could fix if they wanted to.

I'm finding the TaskKill BAT file method to work perfectly OK at the moment.

AOE II TC color FIX

Hi all,
I have written an application "AOE II TC color FIX", which helps you with color issue on AOE 2 The Conquerors. The application can run at the windows backgroung and "watches" in process list, if age2_x1.exe has started. If so, the application AUTOMATICALLY suspends or kills (depends on method you choose) the explorer and relieves it back, when AOC is closed. Test it!

Looking forward for your tests and replies
