It works fine. But to be able to "Drag screens" I guess Gunnar and the team needs to "add" that feature to SAGA?

Shapeshifter with 8bit RTG screen has screwed-up colors - like white is magenta and black is cyan. 24bit screen seems fine. I didn't put much effort into solving that issue, maybe someone has a solution to this. I'll ask the developer eventually...

... contacted the author: Due to changes in indexed-colour modes the current vampiregfx is not quite compatible to newer P96.

Edit: I checked with newest SAGA drivers 2.4.4 and a Vampire 1200  2.12

OK, it's sorted out. Seems the issue is related to the way Shapeshifter is handling SetRGB32 command. There will be a P96 update soon for that.

  Quote from the developer:
  "Ich bin immer noch dafür, dass möglichst viele Grafiktreiber screen dragging unterstützen; vielleicht erbarmt sich mal jemand aus dem Team und schaut sich das Developer-Archiv an?"
  "I'm still in favor of as many graphics drivers as possible supporting screen dragging; maybe someone from the team will have mercy and take a look at the developer archive?"
