So i think I fixed my problem. I have the Win10 2004 release. I think that windows was over riding the geforce control panel without making it clear it was doing this. I adjusted the windows graphics settings to force it to use my Nvidia card and it seems to be all working as desired.
That sounds messed up, and doesn't make a lot of sense. How can the House Colour influence whether or not the player can see Animations for his/her units.
Don't ask me, pal. I'm just the tester, not the dev.
Played 2 3v3 games today with friends. I was not the host and played as orange and purple. In both games no explosions. It seems to happen when i am not the host? It's weird.Going to try some other combos tomorrow. Other colours and be host etc.

So I did some testing in skirmish. Playing 8 games as each colour of 8 player on Arctic Wasteland (Mega)
Yellow = Explosions
Blue = Explosions
Red = Explosions
Green = Explosions
Orange = No Explosions
Light Blue = No Explosions
Purple = No Explosions
Pink = No Explosions
So it seems only the top 4 colours are allowing the explosion fx.
Hopefully this will get back to someone who can do something. At least I know not to play the bottom 4 colours XD
