Issues fixed[edit]

"LEGO LOCO only runs in High Colour (16-bit) 800x600, 1024x768 and 1280x1024. Please change to one of these settings."[edit]

Before starting, make sure the desktop resolution is equal to or below 1280x1024 and disable or unplug other monitors that are not your main screen.
The Lego LOCO Alternate Installer also fixes the issue partially
Setup the game compatibility settings[citation needed]
  1. Right click on the loco.exe file (located in <path-to-game>\Exe) and select "Properties".
  2. Go to the "Compatibility" tab and enable Reduced Colour Mode (set to 16-bit) along with "Run this program as an administrator".
  3. Run the exe again.
