Okay so... I just learned that my retro computing needs might be best met by a combination of QEMU, qemu-3dfx, a WinXP or Win98 guest machine, and some WineD3D dlls installed on the guest. I'd like to give this a whirl, but the problem is that I've never touched QEMU and have no idea how it works or how to use it. I've also heard that I might have to compile qemu-3dfx myself? Anyway, I was hoping someone here would have some experience in these matters and could put together a step-by-step guide for artards like me.
The tests will be conducted on an Xubuntu Core 20.04 host (laptop, not the rig mentioned in my signature). I've already installed QEMU from the Synaptic package manager.
Since people like posting system specs:
Core i7 Sandy Bridge @ 3.6 ghz
4 GB of RAM in quad-channel
Geforce GTX 780
1600 x 1200 monitor
Dual-booting WinXP Integral Edition and Win7 Pro 64-bit
XP compatibility is the hill that I will die on.
