Some FINALLY decent screenshot on the 5
So. it would appear that x11vnc shows the ACTUAL FB content as opposed to the Black screen shown on the device. (Handy for testing...)
Also there is no eink artifacting (as it is displayed on an LCD screen, not handy for testing).
I got my first glimpse of what the working game will look like thanks to GM's tips. (and some gratuitous Buildrooting of supporting software)
So I'll share some screenshots. totally playable.
