A little OT, but has been driving me nuts!

Joe,

I've found a LOT of Sierra games are this way.  I guess Sierra thinks that anything more than 16 bit color is too much.

In fact, I used to have the same problems in Winblows (had to switch down to 16bpp to run the game).

If anyone has any pointers, Joe and I will both be happy campers!
