Running Jedi Knight: Dark Forces II under Virtual PC

A while ago I posted about using Virtual PC in order to run Dark Forces under Windows XP (http://blogs.msdn.com/virtual_pc_guy/archive/2004/11/27/270927.aspx) – which got me to wondering whether its much more successful sequel ‘Jedi Knight: Dark Forces II’ would run under Virtual PC too – and it does:

Jedi Knight: Dark Forces II under Virtual PC   Jedi Knight: Dark Forces II under Virtual PC   Jedi Knight: Dark Forces II under Virtual PC   Jedi Knight: Dark Forces II under Virtual PC

In order for it to be playable you need to disable the mouse integration functionality under Virtual PC (http://blogs.msdn.com/virtual_pc_guy/archive/2005/03/14/395625.aspx) but otherwise it runs great.  I have no idea why you would want to do this though :-) (apart from the ‘coolness’ factor).

Cheers,
Ben

  • I do still play Dark Forces with Dos-Box under WinVista from time to time. Never tried  <a href="www.goodoldtimesshop.at/index.php Knight</a> Dark Forces II with Virtual Pc. If i recall right it did work on Xp and Vista in compatibility mode :)

    cheers
