Ah, that’ll be the problem, then. Even when I’ve closed all applications, VMWare itself is still running in the task manager. Ah, poop. I wonder if it would work if I could get it into Window mode.
This is just a curiosity thing, you understand – I’m not as brave as you, couldn’t bring myself to let Vista loose on my PC Actually, I find Vista just about as alien as Linux, similar in many ways too, so if I ever had to have a more modern OS I’d probably go the Linux route with a virtual box for my Windows games. Need to make sure they’d work in a virtual box first, though, of course.
Edit – for anyone who is interested, yes, setting it to windowed mode manually in CONFIG.MUF fixed the mouse problem. Alas, though, none of the words show up whether in windowed mode or full screen, and this could be to do with VMWare’s video handling – it has its own video drivers.
