Hello

Fresh install of JA2 (GoG) + v1.13 4870 + Update
Starting game in windowed mode, it disables Aero, which is ok since many games do.

Only problem is, after exiting the game I cannot enable Aero again!
I have rebooted the computer to no avail. Tried swapping between basic/aero/classic theme, nothing helps!

I've tried the things in this thread: http://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/forum/windows_7-desktop/windows-7-aero-disabled-how-can-i-enable-it-again/aa760f0f-eec1-4a36-b212-c96130038d5c but nothing helped.

Any advice? I really need to get it back Sad

Ahh, it had changed the system to 16bit automagically, and that prevented Aero from working.

Thank you for the help, now everything is ok Smile


Wonder why they made the color setting so hard to find on Windows 7 btw, had to go Control Panel\Appearance and Personalization\Display\Screen Resolution > Advanced Settings > Monitor > Colors

It's recommended to use the INI-editor to start game in windowed mode as it automagically switches desktop back to full colour and aero design etc. after exiting game.
