I was very impressed with your blog concerning pirating games, so I downloaded your democracy 2 demo to test it on my Windows XP instance running in a VirtualBox 1.64 VM on CentOS 5.2
I get D3D error and the drawdebug.txt file says:
Initialising Direct Draw
Attempting fullscreen mode
Creating Context at 1024 768 32
Forcing Fallback Init
Attempting Fallback Init
I bumped up the memory to the graphics card to 128mb and the VM has 768mb RAM … I even tried 32, 24 and 16 bit in 1024x768 mode.
I guess that this game will not run inside a virtualbox windowsxp VM … too bad too as I really wanted to support you after your blog post … but not enough to actually install windows on a machine
My daughter has an XP machine, so I will try the demo there.
