    A lot of times when I start up I get this weird half-screen (see attached pic). Or sometimes full-screen black. What's that all about?

    Planet Earth. Possibly.
    Remind me, do you have the GOG-version of C3C? And if so, have you bought any other games from them?

    Because I have seen a similar problem on our old WinXP laptop (it made X-Wing unplayable :( ), and I suspect it might be a DOSBox-setting holdover (e.g. from a really old game that was originally programmed for a 640*480 monitor).

    Even if that's the case, though, unfortunately I don't know how to resolve it (without re-installing).

    Yes, I have the GOG version of C3C.

    The other games I've downloaded from GOG (Might and Magic VI, VII and VIII) were fixed by unofficial patches.
