    Default Where'd the COLOR go!???

    Here's a goofy one: We've recently upgraded some machines to Windows 98, but still running Alpha4 v.6 under DOS. About 3 machines are now black & white, & when we loaded it on a new laptop (WIN 98) it is also black & white.

    Other than ditching DOS, any ideas out there?

    Thanks!

    Robert:

    This sounds like an A4 question and should be posted in that forum, rather than the A5 forum. A4 experts reside there!

    I'll take a quick quess, though.

    Look for a file called A4.pal, which contains custom colors. If you did not carry it over into the directory you installed the A4 program in, colors would be lost.

    I haven't designed in A4 in years, but just a hunch off the top of my head...

    Sorry about that - thought I was in the A4! Thanks for the reply I'll give it a try.

    I've run into this on a few computers. Its weird as it comes and goes.As far as I can tell it seems to be a video driver problem but I'm not real sure of this. I have not seen the problem on win 98 but have on win 95 (maybe this contradicts what I said before)
