Re: VNC Viewer Display Screen and Minecraft

I am not using the Raspberry Pi 3 B+ for games. I am currently using it as a media server, file backup server and Alexa. When I access it via the VNC Viewer, it is rather slow via wifi. Would an ethernet connection provide a better solution? Is there another work around?

Re: VNC Viewer Display Screen and Minecraft

The mouse and video is slow on my Raspberry Pi 3 B+ while accessing it with VNC Viewer. The mouse lags. Does anyone has suggestions on how to improve it?! Would it be necessary to plug in an ethernet cable into the Raspberry Pi rather than using Wifi??!

VNC Viewer Display Screen and Minecraft

I am currently using VNC viewer to access my raspberry pi 3 B+. However, the VNC Viewer does not display on the full screen of the monitor and the resolution looks low. Does anyone know how to resolve this?

When I run Minecraft, it appears blank through the VNC Viewer. Any suggestions are welcome.
