 ERROR DESCRIPTION:
 When starting Under a Killing Moon from Access Software from a
 Dos Fullscreen session ( MOON.EXE ) a Black Screen is produced.
 The game just hangs with no change in the video. This has been
 reproducable here in BOCA under OS/2 2.11 and OS/2 WARP 3.0.
 
 Enviroment:
 .
 OS/2 Warp 3.0 or OS/2 2.11
 .
 Dos Full Screen Settings:
 .
 Audio Adapter Sharing: On
 DOS_HIGH: On
 DOS_UMB: On
 DPMI_MEMORY_LIMIT: 64

 .
 .
 Hardware:
 .
 486 DX2 66 mhz. Eisa
 Diamond Stealth Pro 2meg and Viper 2meg VLB
 Media Vision Pro Audio Studio / Sound Blaster AWE 32
 Bus Logic 32 bit SCSI adapter.
 Toshiba 3401 external CDROM.
 Reel Magic Mpeg card.
 Jovian Super VIA ( Video Capture card)
 .
 I don't think that it is sound card dependent.
 .
 However thee DEMO of the game will run under OS/2 2.11 and OS/2
 WARP 3.0 with sound. The GA released will not run at all.
 
 
 LOCAL FIX:
 Workaround: Possible suggestion: Configure the game not to use
 any sound at all.
