Gaming in Virtual PC...
A lot of people use Virtual PC for different things. Our primary target markets are:
- Legacy application migration in the enterprise
- Development / test / training / demonstration environments.
Me - I like to use it for gaming (and many other things). Virtual PC only emulates a 2D video card - so it is somewhat limited for gaming - but what it does do - it does well.
The game that I have played most inside of Virtual PC would have to be Warlords III - but I am also well known on the development team as 'the guy who setup a head-to-head DOOM deathmatch on one computer'. It's kind of fun to see - but when you win you lose too :-)
Interestingly enough I just got Unreal Tournament 2004 to run under Virtual PC - as it actually includes a software render. Quality is pretty bad - but it is quite playable.
