Windowed mode is when you play the game, but not in fullscreen, the game is in a small window, like when you open an internet navigator.
Try alt+enter, or F7 which are the lbawin options.
You can also try minimizing the game by pressing alt+tab and then going back.

Its ok don't worry yourself, i'm a very forgiving person Especially when your being kind enough to try and help me. I tryed the small window and it does the same thing as full screen. I'm super confused as i have played it on this laptop before and i remember it playing fine, i do however remember i had a few problems before with music/sound and colour but i fixed that but cant remember how, i'm pretty sure i asked someone on here for help but it was about two years ago! :'(

Close explorer.exe before starting the game and only start it again after you finished playing. You can use task manager (Ctrl+Alt+Delete) for both closing explorer.exe and starting the game while explorer.exe is closed.

Why would that help ? I mean, I don't see any correlation between explorer and lbawin...

Haha, I don't know but it worked for me a couple of times. It works for many old games though, not only LbaWin.

That's right. Last game I played using this method was Submarine Titans.

On which system did you run it ? Win8 ? I never tried on it, I'll give a try, and why not would be the occasion to deliver an updated version (since the time...).

It's strange but the color problem doesn't happen in Windows 8. I think it has something to do with the thing that Windows 8 doesn't support color depths other than True Color, so the 256 color mode is only "emulated" for the program, not for the whole system.
