Hello,

I just purchased GR, ran it for the first time only to find that there was some kind of weird color anomaly. It reminds me of the old 256 paletted days when the palette gets overwritten. In any case, I hadn't patched it yet, so I did, now I'm 1.4 and the problem is still there. I tried changing video modes to no avail.

I have a Gainward nVidia TI4200 128MB card.

I hope someone knows what's up 'cause I really don't want to return this game.

First welcome to this great game and forums. Follow the below uninstall and reinstall the game no patches as this stage. Please post your dxdiag.



GR Uninstall

First of go to your add/remove program and uninstall GR/UBI and then follow below and delete the GR/UBI folders
