Windows 7: Remote desktop and games

Remote desktop and games

now i have set myself a small project and need some help.

i'm trying to run some light games over rdc but they all come up and with some random excuse to not work, it's not like i'm trying to run crysis here just some card games from steam...which doesn't like it either.

now it's a local lan so i'm not doing this over the internet which obviously helps perfomance of rdc in fact i'm typing this using that very same rdc laying in my bed.

now i can get some games to work, world of warcraft,aion and a few others but a basic low res poker game....doesn't.

so help please:)

Have you looked into the optional settings?

On the client. go to Start > Accessories > Remote Desktop Connection

Once the RDC window appears and before you make your connection to the other computer, select options from the lower left corner of the RDC window.
