Well thanks for all the work so far Paul (and the other guys).
I knew it would be a tough nut to crack.
I'm a rank amateur at the programming lark, but I assume that even with a direct link to a graphics card (as opposed to through an external API) all the executable is actually looking at is a memory address. If that is true would it be possible for a TSR to intercept the memory calls and redirect them, or is it too dynamic to keep control of?
(If that sounds daft then bare in mind my first words in the last paragraph!)
Taking your point about modifying the built-in code library, some one has done this in a minor way for DID's Total Air War so that it goes above the 800x600 limit to 1024x768. It's purely for the latest D3D patch (and it doesn't work on my graphics card!) but it obviously works for some and so is possible.
