Hey all,

I recently set up a Virtual Machine with Windows 2000 because I want to play my Episode 1 Podracing game from good ol' 99. It installs but when I click the button to play, it tells me that 3D hardware isn't detected. I get this in both Virtual PC and VirtualBox. Is there a way to get this "hardware"...or at least play my game?

Virtual machines use virtual hardware with little to no 3D support. The latest VMware workstation is has support for DX9, and I thought Virtualbox did too, but maybe it doesn't.
