I tried a few of the different modes, but all they seemed to do is alter the time span in the change from 'almost black' to black screen. Ah well, I'll add the Baron to my short stack of "Games that will play on my next computer." It's not a crisis. As my wife mentions at times; I have a fairly large footlocker full of games that I know I can play.
Thanks again to all for the attempts. I always enjoy, and am astounded by, the knowledge available here.
If all the people were heroes, there would be no one to watch the parades.
