Windowed Mode

I'm very interested in purchasing the GeneForge series for my downtime at home and work. I tried the demo a few years ago on a PC Gamer CD and just thought of it recently when looking for something to play when work is slow or I'm waiting around on FFXI for stuff to happen.

I have a small problem though. I need to be able to play the game in a window and have it not mess with my screen colors.

If the game tries to fullscreen on me:
1.) It's not very discreet at work, and I don't really want to draw attention to it.
2.) Any other fullscreen application will crash my other game of choice.

So, I just need to know if this game can be played in windowed mode at all, either through it naturally being able to do that, or there's a work-around I missed during my research.

Thank you.

I'm afraid no game using the Geneforge engine can be run in a window. And as far as I've heard, there's no decent workaround.

Geneforge 5 will however have a windowed mode as well as variable display resolutions, according to the latest update.

The only work around is to run the games in an emulator that has windows mode.

So, that would make it full screened in a windowed emulator, correct? Hmmm.
