Default Anybody know how to fix the ugly colors on Win 7 (collector's edition)

Somewhere along the lines, my copy of LL2 got upgraded to the Collector's edition. Not complaining though. Or maybe I did buy it all those years ago, after that fight with a Skele-Ton and a few Super Zombies in real life. (long story)

However, after getting a new computer with Win 7 64 bit, and all, there seems to be this amazingly silly color changing oddness in it.
Apparently, It's related to direct Draw. Unfortunately, all the links to get it working relate to the original loonyland, and there are no surviving links to the collector edition color fix.
Oddly enough, going into the achievement menu and exiting it fixes the brown haze, and makes the game playable, just aneurism induing.

So, if anyone still plays this game, and knows how to fix the color issue, and has a working fix for the collectors edition, or knows how to tell me how to fix it, I do know how to change registry keys, let me know.

There are quite a few fixes floating about, but they don't all seem to work for everyone, so you'll have to try a bunch until you get it working. You can try playing around with Compatibility Mode options, try the files in this post, or the solution in this one (replace Dr. Lunatic instances with Loonyland 2). Alternatively, run the game in window mode.

I'll try those. THe first link doesn't work because it's for the normal Loonyland 2, not the collector's edition. I don't know if it's a simple fix or not.

I've been playing it in Windowed mode, so that's a possible fix.
Also, huge bug found, I can't trigger the boss fight at the furnace, I collected all 3 of the parts, but upon entering the furnace area, I can't do anything with the furnace, and I can't find a boss that's supposed to be there.

What other items/quest do I need?

You can do the LL2 fix for LL2:CE, It works for mine.
And yes, windowed mode is an obvious fix but it's tiny.

The LL2 fix didn't work for me, how do I get it to work? just change the file name to the collector's edition?
And what about the furnace, I'm trapped at it, because I can't figure out what else I need to do there.

Have you been prompted by Fishbug/Capitan (depends on route taken) to fix the furnace? I recall having to return to talk to them to activate the quest when I ran into the same problem.

To my knowledge, your copy being CE will not make a difference in whatever fix you find. CE just has a few extra features, none of which are related to the graphics engine.

Oh, okay. I'll go talk to them. I nearly beat Happy Stick man a long time ago, I should have remembered that.
And the registry change to fix the color does not work for me on Loonyland, I've tried it, it will not work for me at all.
I can try the bat file next, but I feel a bit nervous killing explorer.
