Running Jedi Knight: Dark Forces II under Virtual PC

A while ago I posted about using Virtual PC in order to run Dark Forces under Windows XP (http://blogs.msdn.com/virtual_pc_guy/archive/2004/11/27/270927.aspx) – which got me to wondering whether its much more successful sequel ‘Jedi Knight: Dark Forces II’ would run under Virtual PC too – and it does:Jedi Knight: Dark Forces II under Virtual PC

In order for it to be playable you need to disable the mouse integration functionality under Virtual PC (http://blogs.msdn.com/virtual_pc_guy/archive/2005/03/14/395625.aspx) but otherwise it runs great.  I have no idea why you would want to do this though 🙂 (apart from the ‘coolness’ factor).
