Did you try the hpc and sig3 versions to see which displays better?
And do the other versions I added do the same thing?
paulfiction 30 November 2022 at 9:16:14 AM
The sig3 works with gapi emu, but both exe files are in japanese characters.

I found a site how-to for it but in Japanese

and this thread here: https://www.hpcfactor.com/forums/forums/thread-view.asp?tid=18952&am...
obviously won't help the screen issues on Jornada though, sorry!
