Thanks for the link.
Glad to see Markus Egger in the credits. About a year ago, I followed his instructions here:http://www.markusegger.at/
and got my X-Wing / Tie Fighter / X-Wing vs. Tie Fighter / X-Wing Alliance installs all up to snuff. I might look at the sound improvements though.
I didn't see if color glitch was brought up in that article though, or if the hoops fix it. Sometimes when you exit/complete a mission in Tie Fighter or X-Wing, the color palette gets crazy.
The fix is to open your task manager and end the "explorer.exe" process. This kills your GUI desktop. Then, within the Task Manager, click "File", then "New Task (Run...)" and choose the pertinent shortcut or .exe for the game you want to play. It will start normally.
Once you're done playing, just reinitialize the "explorer.exe" from the Task Manager by clicking "File", the "New Task (Run...)", and type "explorer.exe".
Voila! No color glitches.
