Run Roadrash in Windows 7 without Color Issues



When you upgrade your Operating System to Windows 7 or Windows 8, the good old games you have in your hard drive may show some graphics or color issues when you try to run them. These games include Roadrash, Age of empire etc. Let's see a working resolution for this problem.


The game with color issues will look like this:



Follow the below simple steps to resolve this problem:

1. Go to ' Notepad ' or any other text editor.

2. Type (or copy and paste) the below lines exactly:


taskkill /F /IM explorer.exe
ROADRASH.exe
start explorer.exe

3. Click ' File > Save as '.

4. File name : ROADRASH.bat

5. Select ' All Files ' in the save as type drop down menu.

6. Save the file in the installation directory. It is the directory where you find the ' ROADRASH.exe ' file.

7. It will be usually ' C:\Program Files\Road Rash '.

8. Double Click ' ROADRASH.bat ' to run the game.

Now you can see the color issue being resolved.

    1. Obviously it is not a graphic problem.

      The game seems to be corrupted.

      Please download a fresh copy of the game.

  10. Works on win 7 x64 in 2008, but did not. I am working to fix this so everyone can play that EA already abandoned the project and not the most support. I find it absurd that a game like this be abandoned.

  11. Earlier it did not work for me. After some research I found that game installation path and the path in registry is different. So I changed the path in registry to the path where I installed road rash. It worked like a charm.

    However, sound is not working for me. I am getting midi error.

  12. I did it in my laptop but after I opened the ROADRASH.bat and close it, the explorer.exe won't open again and my desktop became empty. how can I fix that?

  13. I made a mistake first. Instead of typing "taskkill /F /IM explorer.exe" I typed "taskkill/F/IM explorer.exe".
    It didn't work. When I corrected myself and inserted the spaces it worked.
    So people, be careful to type it as it is. Better to copy and paste!

  27. thank you it is running perfectly. It was one of my fav old games. Also if you have a trainer for the game, it has 'Run Game'. You should not press it, just click the .bat file.
