Atomic Bomberman fix color problem Windows 7 / 8

         How to run and fix Atomic Bomberman color problem in Windows 7 / 8 / Vista :
                       If you want to play the game over the Internet read this ARTICLE
                       You can Download the game from  HERE .

1.  Go to your Atomic Bomberman executable and run it in compatibility mode for Win XP,
( right click on BM95.exe --> Properties -->Compatibility--> check in Run this program in compatibility mode for Windows XP. )

2. To fix the Atomic Bomberman color problem you need to end explorer.exe process from Windows before open Bomberman. For this you need to run Atomic Bomberman from a .bat file which will close explorer.exe before starting bomberman and open it back when you exist.
     From what i seen, there are many versions of Atomic Bomberman on the web with different executable name, Download the .bat file for your version :

-If you start the game with BM95.exe Download link1     Download link2     Download link3
-If you start the game with BM97.exe Download link1    Download link2      Download link3
-If you start the game with Bomberman.exe Download link1    Download link2   Download link3

   After you download the file, copy it in your Atomic Bomberman folder and start the game with it.
( open the file normaly, NOT as administrator )




   If you want to make your own .bat file, create a text file, write the code for specific version, then go to File-->Save As... --> Save as type All Files --> File name : bomb.bat
       .bat file CODE :         
taskkill /F /IM explorer.exe > NUL
BM95.EXE
start /B explorer.exe

    2. Double check the spelling of the executable file in the Bomberman directory, and make sure it matches what the .bat file is trying to open. Right click on the .bat file and click edit. This should open the text so you can confirm the exact spelling. The executable in the directory for me was spelt 'bombeman.exe' (note the missing 'r' and uppercase 'B') and the .bat file was trying to open 'Bomberman.exe'. Renamed the executable file in the directory to Bomberman.exe and it worked fine.

  10. Any thoughts on how to get a classic joystick to work on a newish PC (USB and PCIx only). If I get a joystick to USB device (see link below) will Bomberman detect it? What if I buy a new USB joystick?

    Thanks!

  11. To get the script to work - you might have to add one line as shown below

    taskkill /F /IM explorer.exe > NUL
    :
    \INTRPLAY\BOMBRMAN\BM95
    start /B explorer.exe

      C:
      or
      D:
      etc.

    2. Double-clicking on the .bat file from the bomberman folder will launch the game with color.

  12. This is totally unnecessary, at least in windows 7 although it may work in 8 too as I haven't had chance to try it on my main machine.

    You just need to enable "Run this program in compatibility mode for " set to "Windows XP (Service Pack 3)" then enable "Run in 256 colors", "Run in 640 x 480 screen resolution" and "Disable desktop composition"

    That's what the compatibility settings are for!

  13. I have windows 7 home 64 bit and it does not work. I download Atomic bomberman and there are two Icons BM and BM97. So I download the BM97 and copy it folder.
    Then I open the game and have the colours problem.

    Before it start I changed the compatibility mode.
    When I enable "run in 256 colors" I got a black screen. Nothing helped only a computer restart. Do you have other advices?

    Thank you

  14. Works fine in w7 ultimate 64 bit. Thie is simple, compatibility win xp sp3, 256 colors, 640 mode and (important) disable desktop composition. It works for me, I have full hd display. The only downside, you need to set aspect ratio from display.
