    AoM doesn't work on VPC. It'll load but you'll just have a black screen.

    DragonQ, what work around did you use? I'm having the same difficulty with a black screen at the main menu of AOM in a Win2000 OS in Virtual Box. I only get the music and a pointer.

    UPDATE: I figured it out. You can find the final piece to the puzzle here: http://forums.virtualbox.org/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=25937
    You need to install 3D acceleration in Windows 2000.

    Hi, I don't suppose you could post an example of your config file. I've tried various combinations of text inside the file but cannot get past the unsupported graphics card message. Also I'm not quite sure what the 'Delete the "\" x ' means I should delete. Thanks.

    I can confirm that Age of Mythology works on VirtualBox 4.0.2 with Windows XP SP2. I tried installing SP3 and got the error that my video card is unsupported.
    Using 0x80EE_virtualbox.gfx on Win XP SP3 helped to start the game, but only black screen appears after loading.

    Good luck.

    I also wasn't sure of what deleting the "\" was. In fact, it is to change all "\[" and "\]" for "[" and "]". After that, it works without problem.
