Weird Exile II Annoyance

3 posts in this topic

I'm getting these weird bars during popups in Exile II. Whenever I try to make a party, pick up items, cast a spell or read a special I'm inundated with this inconvenience. I downloaded Exile II from the main site and even tried the older version [with the different graphics and sounds] and the same thing happened. I copied the misc.dat file from the newer version over so I could play the full version instead of the demo, so it might be something within that file that's messed up. Anybody have any ideas as to how I might go about remedying this?

To be clear, if you use the demo without copying misc.dat, this doesn't happen? That seems a bit surprising.

 

Have you tried setting your monitor to use a lower # of colors, including within Windows within DOSBox?

Changing the colors worked! Thank you very much! Very weird considering I've played all of the other Exile games and no color problems never occurred. And just for closure, the bars were showing up with the demo of the old version as well.
