Folks,

All my maps are gray. WIN10 machine plenty of RAM. Get a message on loading a scenario that I have the incorrect .epp file?

All other games function without issue. Version III was fine.

Any suggestions to get color back into my maps?

Tom

So I rebooted my PC and the .epp message is gone.

But the maps are still all gray :(

More details would be appreciated - e.g. What scenario? Did you update to the latest patch? Could you dump your DxDiag file here? Where did you install TOAW IV, e.g. C:\Program Files (x86) or, as recommended at another folder?

Klink, Oberst

If you guys need help you really need to give more information about your systems. It's like saying, 'my car won't run'.

Hey guys I figured out what my issue was. Under Options somehow the contrast was set to 20 instead of 0. The moment I changed it to 0 the gray went away and everything looks normal again.

Strange but there it is! Sorry to bug everyone!

What username are you running under?

I've seen a few problems caused by using non-english characters in the username. They can be worked around, but I don't understand how they could make things monochrome.

What model of the Intel graphics are you using?
