Hi! So I'm trying to play Iron Helix in a Win-OS2 session, but it requires  256 colors.  Is there a way of reducing the colors available for a given win-os2 instance?  I seem to remember being able to do this, but I haven't been using OS/2 consistently for 15 years.

Thanks!

Might have to reduce them for the whole system in the screen object.

If I remember correctly that is the minimum number of colours those games need to run, a larger number will display all of them without problems.  What do you see when you run the game?
