I want to play The Sims on my iBook. If I install Virtual PC, how will it run?
you can get the sims for mac. but i heard that virtual pc doesn't work well with games. installing it and getting the mac version shouldn't make a difference.
haha.. haha... umm, haha..
I'm just kidding. No, it won't. Well, it might, but it'll play like a slideshow. Just get the Mac version.
It won't as VPC does not support DirectX (I think ). Even if it did run in VPC, it would be hideously slow and probably unplayable. There is a Mac version if you really want to play it.
There's an eBay auction.
It's one of the first games I stuck on VPC as I knew it was so primitive (at least the main program; I wouldn't remotely attempt Makin' Magic, as it runs horrifically slow even on my 2.4ghz PC) that it should be rather nice.
It runs faster than I thought it would -- but I hope you're not thinking installing Sims 2 which barely runs properly on newer Macs. VPC is for circa-2000/2001 era gaming only.
