Introduction: How to Fix Starcraft's Bad Colors or Color Problem

This is an instructable for fixing the bad graphic colors in Starcraft if your running Windows Vista or Windows 7.

There are 3 ways to do this, screen resolution window, run in Compatibility Mode, and a .bat file.

Step 1: Screen Resolution Window

First, open the screen resolution window by right clicking on your desktop and going to screen resolution.
