Feel free to use this list if you want to ask anything or discuss
(it's what it's for). I was calling Settlers 3 a test app, and
rightfully so as you have shown you have regressions. As for copying
to a from winex11? If you are talking about getting a dib from a ddb,
you use GetDIBits. If you are talking about the old needless copying
done with winex11 (because graphics are done in the server), well,
using the dib engine is going to make it go away, and since we are
writing the dib engine from scratch, it doesn't have any of it.
