OS: Windows
Date Added: 18-Jan-2014
Author: Galogen
Description: DirectDraw Compatibility Tool is designed to fix color palette corruption in the old games (C&C, Starcraft and other from the second half of the 90th). Corruption occurs because of incompatibility between graphical interface Windows Aero and games intended to work with DirectX 7 DirectDraw or an older DirectX version. Both Windows Vista and Windows 7 have built-in compatibility tools for such games. But to invoke compatibility mode there should be information about specific exe-file in the corresponding part of the registry. DirectDraw Compatibility Tool allows to completely automate process of compatibility rules creation.
