    I think the REg fix is the only thing I have not tried. Thanks

    Sorry about the files not being available in my Dropbox account anymore, you should still be able to get all the necessary files from the links I provided.

    The regfix isnt necessary for AOE 3, only for 1 and 2. And like I said, the regfix files are no longer available from my Dropbox, so you'll need to download the Windows 7 DirectDraw Patcher (it can be used on Vista and 8 too) and use that to generate the proper Registry fixes for the games. This will solve your color issues.
