Hi!

Trying to run game on virtualbox guest Win 7 64 (host win 10 64), but as soon as I skip the intro the screen becomes black and music is playing on the background. Processor usage of guest is 100% while host is 15% only
https://prnt.sc/m99f02

I can only Alt+Tab and kill the DO process in task manager. On host I can run DO perfectly fine

I am trying to understand if it is my Virtualbox guest settings issue or DO installation on Win 7 one?

I added 4 Prcessor CPUs (was 1 out of 8 host) in Virtualbox guest settings and now CPU load dropped to 21%

but the result is the same - black screen and playing music. Now I am sure this is DO installation issue and bot Virtualbox

I will have to test and see but I don't think it has worked with Virtualnbox in the past perhaps?

Fixed the issue.

Not sure what exact steps sequence I went through but among them were reinstallation, intro-crash fix register file and other register files for Win7 I found while searching the forum.

Now my problem is how to set up this bloody network connection between host (main PC) and guest (VM)

Cool, does it play in full 3d mode, as Virtual PC was never able to but Rob found PCEM could.

To multiplayer network I had to assign the virtual PC a static IP address within the same range as my physical PC.
