Increase XPM VRAM?

Is there any hack at all to increase the Vram even a little. Reason being is i installed a very basic game that doesnt require much, but would like to have maybe 64MB of video memory running it as a remote app.

It's pointless and impossible. XPM is nothing more than an RDP interface through a VM. So you are limited to what RDP provides. Do not even attempt gaming through any RDP session.

Well it was only one of those little games that requires only like 16 MB or something like that. Insaniquarium. And it wasnt really XPM, it was a Windows XP HE I installed on the WVPC because I am on Windows 7 HP.

How to increase XPM Vram

After you installed the virtual hard disk file, run XP Mode for the FIRST TIME. A window should pop up asking for the location of the installation folder and a password for XPM. Type in the installation folder bar a location that you can access. Then click next and complete the installation. You will see that XPM will automatically startup. Shut XPM down. After it has completely shutten down (not hibernate) go to your installation folder and open the Windows XP Mode.vmc file with Notepad. Search for the word 'vram'. You wil see a number (most likely 16). Remove the number and type in a value that suits your need.
The largest number I tried was 128
Have a nice day!
