8:29 AM | Tom Bridge | Comment on this story
Connectix, makers of Virtual Game Station and RAM Doubler, has released version 4.0 of their PC Emulation product Virtual PC. Version 4 comes with some new features, including "growable" Windows disk images, support for Windows ME, and also support for the Velocity Engine, allowing a speed boost of up to 50% from previous versions, and support for the Apple Cinema Display. Version 4 can also handle up to 512MB allocated to the program. So what does this mean for gamers? Connectix says:
It all depends on the game, but a pretty good rule of thumb is that if won't run on last year's PC, it won't run well in Virtual PC. However, productivity software support is about 100 percent.So, don't rush out and expect full compatibility, but if you want to finally give Age of Empires 2 a try on your Mac, boot up VPC and give it a shot.
