just wondering. I'm aware it's on top of DOS, but it's not 6.22, and most stuff I'd play is probably late 90s-early 2k stuff rather than mid-90s.

vmware 10 might do given it does support hardware accelerated graphics in 9x hosts. not sure what DOSBox is like, or other virtualisation/emulation software (except that vpc2007 only emulates 2D gfx and vbox is garbage for 9x/ME).

anyone else had any experience running older 9x based games in modern OSes? i use vista x64 (this machine has AMD-V, one of the first AMD processors to include it as a matter of fact) so hw virtualisation is possible

I've used vmware and DOSBox. If the game in question can run on DOSBox, do that. Its much more stable and actually runs quite smooth. VMWare with a legit copy of Win98SE would work great, too. Heck, you could probably get away with WinXP for a lot of stuff.

My brother didn't want to deal with any of that, so he keeps a Pentium III PC with Win98SE sitting around that he does old games on. You can probably find an old Win 9x box around eBay/Craigslist for fairly cheap, too.

Well thats nice to know

ME would also probably work nicely for newer 9x games I guess thats dont require real mode, since it's basically an extension to 98SE.

But I'll keep the 98SE VM going too (as well as a DOSBox install)
And also, another quick comment, p3's are great for 98se
