    ill give it a shot.. i never ran Virtualization software before... im a little worried about how complicated it will be. all just to play that old school game lol.

    Not having a graphics card is making me desperate and impatient soo bad, im playing all my old games and im also Craving Nostalgia REALLY BAD hence the game im trying to run...Dirt Bike was a great game. (I have been playing Warcraft II, Total Annihilation, Starcraft, the complete Command and Conquer set, Subspace, the list goes on haha) - btw i got RA95/aftermath AND RA2/Yuri's Revenge working at 1920x1080p!!!

    Not difficult running virtual machines, the software installs just like any other program, and then you just create a machine with whichever specs you want to give it, and then install Windows or DOS or whatever you want, just like a normal PC, main difference is you mount install images instead of using physical install media

    Is this it?
    http://nicoool.free.fr/pc_dirt_bike.php
    There are two downloads. One for dirt bike 4.4 and another for dirt bike 3d.
    The site is in French but looks legit and a scan of dirtbike_4.4.exe at virustotal and metadefender shows it's clear.
