The loader works but produces altered colors and what I'll call an 'agitated' screen--e.g., the yellow arrow above the current soldier bounces up and down x 5-15 / second.  Not, as far as I can tell, the same as flicker.

It's usual for the selection arrow (and other animations) to run full-bore in the tactical game. They've been doing it since processor speeds breached the 100mhz mark and we're well past that now.

Most colour problems under XP and earlier OSes are caused by other programs running in the background (even if you'd think they have no effect on the display). Try closing down any background tasks, eg, printer managers and so on.
