I recommend using VB, but the image can be converted to other VM's, but untested. This image was made in VB 6.1, which does not support 3D hardware acceleration, but it's not required. VB 6.0 was the last to support winXP 3D acceleration.
windows XP? it's small, lean and runs very well emulated, but most
importantly it can compile and run PlayStation executables and CDROM's.
** Install tips **
a new VM for winXP 32bit without a HD, and add the VDI file.. and
follow the images to setup, enabling 2 CPU's is recommend but 1 or more
should be fine. Must have ticked "enable I/O APIC"... VB USB, drive and
networking work fine, other settings may or may not work.
** getting started **
First boot will take a bit longer then normal, and it decompresses mp3's.
Start eclipse or browse the NY-demos folder on the Desktop.
** Problems **
Playing midi (.mf) files in windows media player crashes VM.
Virtual Box can have issues with shared clip board, pasting may crash some apps.
Save work often!
Many things are WIP
** Note **
Contains version 7 of paint shop pro for TIM's but a newer and full version 8 is here:
