Has anyone bought this?  I assume anyone reading this has a CD-ROM copy from 1998.  I want to know if it is actually something different that runs smoother on windows7 or can change the resolution or avoids those colour problems?.

i bought this release too. the game comes already patched up to version v5.0, but this is the only difference from previous versions.
i'm using it on WinXP so i can't tell anything about how it works on Win7, but from what i read, if you make the following change in the Alpha Centauri.ini file,  you will force Alpha Centauri to run at your desktop resolution

--- Code: ---DirectDraw=0
--- End code ---

by "colour problems" you mean when you alt-tab out of the game?
