We don't need these scripts anymore

     2 Project files for embedded Visual C++ 3.0, 4.0 and 
     3 Visual Studio 2005 can be found in VisualCE.zip

     5 SDL supports GAPI and WinDib output for Windows CE.
     6 
     7 GAPI driver supports:
     8 
     9 - all possible WinCE devices (Pocket PC, Smartphones, HPC)
    10   with different orientations of video memory and resolutions.
    11 - 4, 8 and 16 bpp devices
    12 - special handling of 8bpp on 8bpp devices
    13 - VGA mode, you can even switch between VGA and GAPI in runtime
    14   (between 240x320 and 480x640 for example). On VGA devices you can
    15   use either GAPI or VGA.
    16 - Landscape mode and automatic rotation of buttons and stylus coordinates.
    17   To enable landscape mode make width of video screen bigger than height.
    18   For example: 
    19     SDL_SetVideoMode(320,240,16,SDL_FULLSCREEN)
    20 - WM2005
    21 - SDL_ListModes
    22
