In Dec 2015 aqrit released a new version of ddraw.dll specifically for Warcraft II which fixes 100% of the common display glitches that tend to happen on Windows. The fix will eventually be included in future versions of War2Combat by default, but until then this article explains how you can manually install it to fix display issues right away.
- Download the new ddraw.dll file here.
- Extract the file “ddraw.dll” and copy it into your Warcraft 2 directory.
If you’re using War2Combat it will probably be C:\War2Combat. It could also be C:\Program Files\War2Combat or C:\Program Files\Warcraft II BNE
- You will receive a prompt asking if you want to overwrite the file, do so.
- That’s it, your colors will now be fixed in all versions of Windows.
