Running Vega Conflict or other Windows Games in Linux through Steam.
Linux Mint 17.3 64 bit was used for the test and was loaded with Oracle
VM Virtualbox version 4.3.28. I loaded Windows XP SP3 into the virtual
box, turned off all updates, the firewall and all notifications. Next
step is to reboot in Safe Mode and load Virtualbox Guest Additions. It
must be in safe mode and you must tick the box '3D Acceleration'. Once
this is all done turn the XP Virtual box off and in the video settings of the XP click the boxes for 3D and 2D. Boot it up.
Go to Steam, join Steam if you have not already done so, load vega...that's it!
Remember though the virtual machine shares resources with the guest
machine so if, for example you have 2gig of video in the guest machine
you can only really expect 1 gig to be used on the virtual machine. The
same with system ram etc. In reality you can run the virtual machine
with as little as 128k but it will be slow, maybe ok for repairs but
nothing much more.
