All members agree to the rules set by the forum.

Rule 4) No discussion of piracy or anything illegal is allowed at all. Such as software, music, videos and other intellectual property violations.

You obviously don't agree with the rules you agreed to when you signed up here. Now if you feel the admin staff is in error, perhaps you should discuss it with them. For the rest of us that choose be to here, we follow the rules. And for the record I personally agree with that one.

Anyway good luck in convincing them to grant you an exception

BTW I can tell you this thread has got a short life span now that you've revealed yourself.

Peace

Did you install the VMWare Tools? That should help with the sound and video resolution although a VM cannot take full advantage of your machine's sound or video capabilities.

From now on I will follow the forum rules and in this case I have no disputes at all.

I will follow the rules, but I was just asking why such rules exist in the first place. It may harm copyright owners but not the forum itself right?


Anyway, you said I revealed myself as what?

Yes I did. The game runs at low res by default, but I would like to zoom in if possible. Maybe not using VM Player itself, but some other desktop application.

Replied to your inquiry. Any further questions on this need to be directed to admin as I'm not part of the staff.

I'm out.

This is not a hackers forum. All members here follow the law. Any member that doesn't hurts the credibility of the forum.

You have to realize that many members do or did earn their livelyhood from said copyright owners. And you have to realize that by continuing your "line of reasoning" that the chances are increasing that the admins will decide that you are not a trustworthy member. That's their decision, not mine.

I'm just sayin "Do you fell lucky, Rick? Well do ya?"

I have no vested interest in this thread, so I will unsubscribe.

The VM doesn't use your sound or video card per se, it emulates the hardware. I believe the soundcard it emulates is a Creative Sound Blaster AudioPCI. See this link: Installing Sound Drivers in Windows 9x and Windows NT Guest Operating Systems
