I have installed Splinter Cell which I found in a list as working. However, as it starts to load it flashes the Splinter Cell logo screen the correct way around before loading the game rotated through 90 degrees. The controller (with Pinnacle mapping) sends the mouse pointer around the image correctly so the controls are twisted the same as the image.

I have tried switching on and off the screen lock for the rotation but it has not helped. Has anyone any ideas how to get tthe game facing the correct way.

Try running it in windowed mode. Apparently there is a bug in the intel drivers that has never been fixed. So games like all the C&C games rotate unless in windowed mode.

it is very annoying that these games will work - yet the screen messes up on lots of games.

not cool I will look into the Intel drivers and contact them.

oh well a fair few games do work. :idea:

Try this, it has worked for me pretty good so far:
you have to use the custom.dll in the game's folder to fix it: https://www.vogons.org/download/file.php?id=40791

:idea: Moderator, this deserves its own individual entry, it has brought new life to my Vision.

Edit: I just noticed that the link is now broken, I am putting it in my GDrive:

Hmmm, Im sure I tried this, will give it go and let you know.
Be great to finally play all CnC's on tablet.
I STAND CORRECTED.

The DX8.dll you posted works like a dream. Wonder why it never worked for me, as I know I downloaded it before.
I will now see if I can get it patched to work in system folder. Save adding file to every game dir.

Well CnC works flawless now, just need to force it into 1280 x 800 like I used to. 20th Anny has issues with function removed etc etc. So I may have to crack open my mint condition CnC Generals disc.
