Well, though I can be reasonably confident that this thread will be of interest to few (or the one and only me), I did say I'd check back in once I'd set up an XPort on my Mac using Virtual PC... And so... Absolutely no problems, in the slightest, whatsoever. Nada. Zip. Bupkus. Very peachy. It all went swimmingly. So, why bother reporting it? Well, perhaps the news might encourage someone else to actually try it, if they were holding back. Granted, I suspect a large part of my formula for easy success involved having a decently fast CPU and just a pant-load of RAM, but there you go either way. Still figuring out how to get my hybrids balanced, though... Sample cars crash the PS2. Oh, and the Alitalia Stratos runs five reverse gears and one forward, with concordant Dualshock keys reversed. No biggie. Fixed that. I'm now at 99,4%, closing in fast. I have to spank Kazunori at Complex String and then it's basically over save for Bland Valley Endurance and essentially trying to drive up my own rear end at Monaco in an F1 car. Can't abide Monaco. See you at 100%.
