You may have jumped out of video games before Wolfenstein and Doom, Mike
(FPS=First-Person-Shooter) but your comment below is dead on.  This is
precisely the issue with trying to "see" a typical modern game remotely.
They use 3D acceleration built into the video card; with "software"
rendering instead (which is what you would need to use to see things
properly with VNC), the images will consistently look much worse and be
significantly slower.

: ... I don't know what an FPS shooter is, but the same logic
: applies -- where does the video for the shooter get added to the video
: output stream?  If it is added after the CPU, then it won't be in vnc.
