Related: Can you recommend a way to virtualize Windows 10 on a Linux host over another?

So I'm going to need to do some testing on the Windows version of Unity. I don't even have any Windows in my household.

The question is, can I get around installing Windows? Would it work well in a VM?

In about half an hour it's celebration stream time. Here is a list of some of my childhood games that I have prepared (in some fashion):

PIPE DREAM, DOSDORF, JILL, WACKY WHEELS, MOO, TOONSTRUCK, BROKEN SWORD, DUKE NUKEM 3D, ABE'S ODDYSEE, KKND 2, OUTCAST, ANNO 1602, NOX, MM6

I guess I'll start at the top and see where we end up. See you in half an hour!

Another awesome classic I can't get to run. It's a 16 bit game and winevdm just crashes.

Well, at least people are putting effort into the latest AAA games.

About time I announce this all proper-like: tomorrow afternoon I'm going to celebrate that 200 people follow me on Twitch with a stream full of retro games.
I had a couple rather obscure ones in mind, but it turns out some of them are really hard to get to work, so there'll be a few reasonably known ones as well. Anyway, get ready for some DOS goodness.

Tomorrow, Sunday, afternoon-ish, CEST. OK, let's say 2 pm UTC -ish. It's going to be longer anyway.

See you!

This is as far as I got with the DX2 game. The mouse doesn't move and it crashes after about a minute.

Does anyone know how well WINE supports DirectX 8 and DirectX 2? It's the first time I've seen the later. Does it make sense to install those from the game?

@jookia As resident DOS expert, I'm trying a DOS game from 1991 and get a wrong number format.

Rather than 100000 the game shows me 99999.9999 999 998

It's supposed to be currency and the game is German, so it could be a locale issue of sorts as well, as in German the comma rather than the dot is used to delimit the fractional part and vice-versa for the thousands delimiter.

Can you tell me what's wrong or how to work around the issue?
I'm using DOSBOX 0.74.

Please boost for exposure.

Sorry for the mess, there were Twitch issues and on top of that a bunch of issues with Duskers itself as well. So here is what I found:

1) Launch with force-opengl to have it render properly.
2) Set Vsync to Every Other Frame to get a stable 30 FPS through OBS.
3) Disable Noise to greatly decreases CPU required for encoding (to about 1/4)

I don't know whether it's really a first, if it is Turkey might go down in history for weaponizing refugees.
