Could someone tell me how to get this game to run in windows mode. Alt-tab crashes the game and removing the contents of the .ini does nothing.

Thanks

Not a very good situation. Considering this game was writen when a window envionment is the norm (as opposed to DOS) not giving the player the option to run using a window is a poor programming decision at best.

It behaves reasonably well on my two screen setup. I can browse the web, take screenshots with a grab tool, that kind of stuff, just fine.

Having to buy a second monitor may be an inconvenience, though :-P
