Trophy Running on Oracle VirtualBox

Just an FYI.

I am currently running SPWW2 version 11 on my host machine (O/S Windows 7 with 32 GB's of RAM and 3 TB of HDD, with 8 cores) in a virtual machine running Windows 10 Pro (I gave it 3 cores and 12 GB of RAM and a 250 GB HDD). I popped in the CD and installed it on the guest system just fine, downloaded all the patches and it runs just fine. Everything works and plays great.

Thanks Don and Andy for your hard work, dedication and amazing fun factor in doing this since the nineties.

By the way I been out of the loop for a few years is Ed Mortimer still around? He is a great guy and taught me a lot.

Many thanks and cheers.

I have not heard from Ed since the last DOS version of the game.

We are very glad the game is working well for you

When running a PBEM game in secure mode within a virtual machine, would rolling back the VB to a prior state trigger the production of the warning message when the next player loads their turn?

It's not a pleasant scenario to ponder, but I'm wondering if using the roll-back feature of a VB would be one way to perform unlimited reconnaissance during a game's turn. Not that I advocate for it in the least as I despise cheating in general.

To be honest those kind of thoughts never even crossed my mind. Currently I have no computer other then the on provided by my employer and I can't really install any games on it, however my external drive is mine, and I can install many O/S on my host machine and use my own personal VM's for whatever I want. Hence installing Win 10 via VM.


I don't have time to pbem, so I do all my playing solo, so you'll never have to worry about any crazy cheats like that from me.
