I picked up a Microsoft Surface on Friday, and have discovered that it is not a bad way to play Case Blue. I use it to remote in to my main computer and run the game that way. The buttons are not bad to click, and I can use the touch pad on my Touch Cover.

Thanks, nice to know, I hadn't thought about the idea of remoting it.

The tablet has a touch cover, with keys and a mouse pad, so scrolling is not that difficult. As well, it has Bluetooth, and I can put a Bluetooth mouse on it.

I tried doing the same thing with splashtop and the iPad, but it wasn't as useful.

The speed on the surface is good, but then, I am remoting in at my house over my own network. Going to have to try it over the internet.

Actually I've been running it on my Samsung Android tablet for weeks.  Set the computer to the 1280x800 resolution, use Splashtop2, log-in and game from bed.  Very great fun, and comfy in those Colorado winter nights.

Vick,

on my android implementation I just set the computer resolution to 1280x800 and then launch Splashtop2, attach a bluetooth mouse to my tablet, and things work great. Yours are my favorite games, and that I can play them at night, without waking up the wife is a special treat.

Thanks for having taught me tons of history, and entertained me for so many hours. Keep up your great work.

Mike

I put splashtop on the wife's iPad, but she doesn't let me play with it very often
