Windows 7 Color Fix

Author File Description
AKFrost Source of the Fix:

This fix will allow you to play Age of Empires without needing any programs or tricks to fix the Windows 7 color issue.

The versions of the game this fix applies to:

Age of Empires 1.0c
Age of Empires: The Rise of Rome 1.0a

If you're not using these versions, this fix probably will not work. You should follow the link included to create your own fix.

If you do not have windows 7, you do not need this fix.

Go to Start Menu, right click Computer, Click Properties.

If you have a 64-bit system (Under System Type), you want to use the file aoex64.reg

If you have a 32-bit system, you want to use the file aoex86.reg.

Paralyticus This really works. Water and margins were plagued with rainbow-like dots all over and that caused the game to look irritatingly strange. This patch does help to restore the game to its glorious original isometric look.

kanga_roo This worked for me also, but only for the first time. I ran the aoex86.reg file, played the game just fine but the next day it won't work. After the 3 cinematics, instead of the game menu i see the old white, gray and black horizontal stripes and the music playing. I tried re-installing then re-running the register file but still same result. Any idea how can I fix this?.. My laptop runs windows 7 32-bit system, ati video card and 1366x768 widescreen resolution. Thanks
Moldovan Dragos How do i apply the .reg folder? if i double click on it, it doesn't change anything in the game. I do have the 1.0c and 1.0a versions. Please reply
