First: sorry about this. I've gathered that inquiries of this sort become tiresome here. I did search, and found little to help. I'm not sure if this is the right board for this. Now. I'm not about to ask if I can play all the fancy new stuff on a Mac running Virtual PC. The most demanding games I have my eye on are Half-Life, Planescape: Torment, Gabriel Knight 3, maybe System Shock 2. Below that, I'd like Grim Fandango, the Beast Within. . . nothing, I think, that a moderately decent Pentium II couldn't do. This is a 1.25 GHz G4 iMac, with (I guess) the newest VPC, running XP. Apparently, some of these older games don't like XP. . . but anyway. Thanks for any help, and I promise I won't ask something like this again.
