Virtual machines.

Post by 1Pantsu on August 29th 2011, 3:03 pm

i'll be moving off to university again soon, so i won't have access to a second computer. and so, i'll need to use a VM on my laptop to trade myself in Dragon's Nest (if i continue playing).

questions:
-> what program do i use?
-> what should i expect when i use a VM?

this is for Dragon's Nest, so it has to be Windows. if there's some Linux method, it better be hassle-less.

Laptop specs, if they matter:
C2D @ 2.53ghz
4 GB ram
ATI 4670

Try Virtualbox, its one of the most used VM programs from what I've heard and its free. Never used it but I'm downloading it now to check it out. I'll let you know how easy it is to use after I'm done.

Other than that you just need enough HDD and RAM for it too run.

Edit: Oh and I'm pretty sure you need a disc to install the OS. If you don't have a disc for some Windows OS just get Ubuntu or something. Assuming DN will run on it.

i need two OSes to run at the same time, not just having two OSes on the same computer. because i need to trade myself in Dragon's Nest.

lame, hackshield detects it. and from lurking Maplestory (Sleepywood) forums, it seems that Virtualbox won't work anyways, have to use VMware.

It shouldn't be able to detect it. Unless they just plan block Virtualbox then as far as your computer knows it should just be another applications. And as far as the VM knows its an actually, physical computer.

apparently, Hackshield detects certain string phrases in the registry. because of the drivers the VM uses.
