    Virtual Machine solution made for 3d graphics


    Hello all I have slowly migrated completely towards linux however some of the games I love aren't comparable with wine ( such as the sims or star wars empire at war) so I'm looking for a viable solution that can run windows xp and windows 98 as virtual machines but with technology implemented for advanced 3D graphics

    I know most virtualization Is made with design , testing , and server implementation in mind however I'm hoping there is something that exist as a Linux gamer solution instead of a server cluster solution

    You may not have to run virtual machines. There are some truly excellent video tutorials on how to update Wine and get *most* games to run proerly in Linux.
    If you have the time, I would recommend these:
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VAtP...ure=plpp_video (WINE: Run Windows Games in Linux! Part 1 - YouTube)
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VAtP...ure=plpp_video (WINE: Run Windows Games in Linux! Part 2 - YouTube)

    The default Wine installation isn't always the latest, and the videos run through many things including a proper *how to* for just about everything.

    Hope this helps.
