I realize that VirtualBox isn't necessarily a supported platform, but until there is an official linux version, I'd like to be able to play BGEE in VirtualBox instead of having to reboot.
My system is a Intel Core i5 laptop with 8GB RAM and the hybrid Intel HD4500 / nvidia GT540M graphics setup. I've had zero problems with this laptop running BGEE in windows 8 64 bit.
My VirtualSetup is Windows 7 64 bit with 3D acceleration installed. I have some strange graphical glitches with BGEE.
When my characters are standing still, the disappear. The fog of war is also weirdly banded.
When my characters are moving, they appear and everything is normal, except the banded fog of war. As soon as the characters stop moving, they disappear again.
In map view, the unexplored areas of the map reflect the same weird banding as the fog of war.
I've tried it in a Windows XP virtual system with the same results. I've tried with and without the 3D acceleration, as well as with and without the 2D acceleration. All with the same results.
I know there are people that have claimed to be running BGEE successfully in VirtualBox. I'm just wondering there is some setup option in either VirtualBox or BGEE that can/will fix the graphics issues.
