Thanks for your response.
I would like to use the S3 solution to my problem, but S3 doesn’t seem to be
making video cards anymore. They’re now some sort of multi-media company. I
haven’t heard of anyone using the S3 dies to make video, so for me here in
Canada, that’s not going to be a good option.
Although, I’ve never tried the gr.vesa2 driver. I wonder if that might work
for our console. I looked at some of the cards I’ve got, but none say VESA2
specifically so I’m not sure they will work. I will give them a test though.
I think the solution of using Sockets to MS and back is pretty much what a
Terminal Server application program would do. Too bad no one wrote one for
Anyhow, thanks for your input, you’ve given me some new direction if I can
find some available VESA2 compliant PCI or AGP cards somewhere.

We still use QWindows and I am very interested in such software.
Having developed, please attend me.
Now some ideas:
VGA S3 Savage4 (id 22) and similar cards work nice with gr.vesa2
Some of them don’t need refresh utility at all, others can used
a little bit adjusted refresh_s3 from quics (test for card id
has to be removed). 85Hz, 100Hz - no problem.
Principally you can install Photon, launch QNX Windows from qwinph
(it is really beta forever) and access the Photon from MS Windows
using Phindows. But this solution is not smart, is expensive and
dangerous - Qwindows behaves under qwinph sligthly different - e.g.
blinking of an element is not visible (imagine blinking button “See
One can develop such application.
AFAIK, position of QWindows cursor can be found, can be set and
click can be simulated (see one thread above, unfortunately I don’t
remember which one). Further, screen can be scaned - it is possible
but it consumes too much time - I do not recommend to do that because of
real-time - though I haven’t tried. Correct solution should be based
- in my imagination - on a special driver which can route graphical
operations through sockets to MS Windows and back. This can be done
effecively only by owner of source code of gr.vga or gr.vesa2, or if the
owner open the code.
