Here's a new and more stable link
http://pacman.highfsb.net/hamumu/SWC%20Color%20Fix.zip
Again, run it and accept all dialog windows.

Alright, seeing as how Pac-Man's link only applies to Supreme and leaves useless registry fragments all over the place if you're using 32x Windows 7, I've uploaded files to fix color issues on all the games I own in both 64x and 32x formats.

Loonyland 1 32x
Loonyland 1 64x
Loonyland 2 32x
Loonyland 2 64x
Sleepless Hallow 32x
Sleepless Hallow 64x
Stockboy 32x
Stockboy 64x
Supreme With Cheese 32x
Supreme With Cheese 64x

Just run these and hit yes to all the pop-ups. Should fix color problems. I could also fix the rest of the games if someone could provide me with the PIDs and .exe names.

Totally exaggerated. I just had enough of the questions like "Do I have 32 bit or 64 bit???".

All you need to do it make a bat file (or download this one that has been made for SWC already: http://www.mediafire.com/?0yymjkt6b30mdvc) that says:

taskkill /F /IM Explorer.exe
(name of hamumu exe).exe
Start explorer.exe

And put it in the folder with the exe (ex: C:\Program Files\Supreme)
That download link gives me...a link! More specifically, a .lnk, or shortcut file, which points to a "lunatic.bat", which doesn't exist yet. If you have the actual batch file available, that would be nice. And wouldn't killing explorer also kill any internet connectivity?

{EDIT}
I tried making my own batch file with Notepad, editing the "name of hamumu" line accordingly, but it's not working. My desktop will disappear, and then reappear, and just as quickly a Command Prompt window will open and close. Do I put just the executable name in that line, or the full path (which is what I've been doing)?

As far as I know, you need to put the .bat file in the game folder.

You can then remove the full path (just keep the exe name), and it'll work.

I put it in the same folder as the game.

Oh well, the link is down for years by now. Anyone still needs this?

I also have a fix for speeding it up on Windows 8 / 8.1, but after restoring the game, it messes up with the color depth (while trying to present palettized 8-bit graphics it gets a 32-bit depth layer) and looks distorted.

If you're having the problem with Supreme, make sure you've tried the 8.0 update (available on the My Downloads page), this should completely fix all color issues for it.

Here's one weird thing:

On my Windows 10 computer, the colors are just fine.
I guess Windows 8 and up had no color problems either.
