I didn't know where else to put this but I thought it would fit in here because I'm having similar problems as the user above. I am trying to run x-wing 95 in windows 7 on my laptop with an ATI integrated graphics chip.
I downloaded that markus egger fix, and that old ddraw.dll and put it in the executable directory. I was having color issues so I tried the technique of shutting down explorer through the task manager. That fixed the color problems and the game seems to be r unning fine. However I have one problem that makes the game unplayable.
Whenever I start up the game I get what I can only describe as a checkerboard pattern that flashes on the screen at random intervals. The checkers are usually the color of the Lucas Arts logo or the Totally Games logo.
Any thoughts on how to fix this?
