Default How you run DW in windowed mode

Dear folks,

it may come in handy to run DW in windowed mode, if you are rather busy and are annoyed by the ALT-tabbing.
Ingame you have a little unchecked box "Window" but it is greyed out. So I wanted to share this little trick on how you run it in window mode. I found out by coincidence that this game runs in 16bit color mode so I figured that the reason the 'Window' box is greyed out is because my desktop runs at 32bit mode.
In the tab in windows where you can change your desktop resolution, you'll find a switch between 16 and 32 bit mode. Turn it to 16bit before you play DW, and the next time the 'Window' box will be checkable
Don't forget to switch desktop color to 32bit afterwards.

Same here. It's so cluttered that I don't even feel like searching for ANYthing there. So, thanks for your post, dude, it's what comes up on top of Google search results, unlike this cluttered, sticky post he mentioned, that's not even among the first ten results, and it's all I needed to know. So, killed two birds with one stone. You're the man, cheers!
