I am trying to play simcity 4 deluxe. I have windows xp home installed in ubuntu linux with the help of virtual box. when i try to start it, i get told "Could not initialize Direct Draw." the title of the window is Hardware Driver Error. Then I click ok, and the screen goes black, forcing me to shut off the virtual machine and restart it. any ideas?
