Hi People here are my results trying WITP on WMs and OS

WITP:AE on ----ReactOS ----------------------------------------Doest Work/No Sound/doesnt get past menu screen after selecting scenario
WITP:AE on ----WinXP on virtualbox on Win10 ----------------Perfect Replication/Runs fine/RAM should be minimum 2
WITP:AE on ----Win8.1 on virtualbox on Win10 ---------------Perfect Replication/Runs fine/RAM should be minimum 4, make it 2 Cpu machine and use -cpu2 switch
WITP:AE on ----Win8.1 on parallels on OSX High Sierra ------Perfect Replication/Runs fine/RAM should be minimum 4, make it 2 Cpu machine and use -cpu2 switch
WITP:AE on ----Win10 on parallels on OSX High Sierra -------Perfect Replication/Runs fine/RAM should be minimum 4, make it 2 Cpu machine and use -cpu2 switch
WITP:AE on ----WinXP on parallels on OSX High Sierra -------Perfect Replication/Runs fine/RAM should be minimum 2
WITP:AE on ----WinXP on parallels on OSX El Kapitan --------Perfect Replication/Runs fine/RAM should be minimum 2
WITP:AE on ----WinXP on virtualbox on ubuntu ---------------Perfect Replication/Runs fine/RAM should be minimum 4, make it 2 Cpu machine and use -cpu2 switch
WITP:AE on ----Win8.1 on virtualbox on ubuntu --------------Perfect Replication/Runs fine/RAM should be minimum 2
WITP:AE on ----wineskin on the OSX --------------------------I had done 3 years ago and still use the same setup, worked perfectly under Sierra. That laptop is overseas so I couldnt replicate it tonight.
WITP:AE on ----Win8.1 on virtualbox on OSX High Sierra ----Perfect Replication/Runs fine/RAM should be minimum 4, make it 2 Cpu machine and use -cpu2 switch
WITP:AE on ----Win10 on virtualbox on OSX High Sierra -----Perfect Replication/Runs fine/RAM should be minimum 4, make it 2 Cpu machine and use -cpu2 switch
WITP:AE on ----WinXP on virtualbox on OSX High Sierra -----Perfect Replication/Runs fine/RAM should be minimum 2

Notes :

1. Command switch(es) are -archive -fw -r -SingleCpuOrders -skipVideo -dd_sw -cpu2 -deepColor -px1920 -py1080 -altFont
2. parallels desktop seems to need more horsepower to give the same performance.
3. OSX VM best performance is Win8.1 + parallels
4. There is no visible difference to the performance if you have a discrete GPU when u are doing the emulation however, i think it helps with the no8 problem mentioned below if you using virtualbox.
5. Make sure to turn on the Virtualization option from your BIOS, makes a performance difference
6. If you are going to VM on a Macbook Air do the XP version
7. Always skip the video, it is the most suspect part of emulation
8. Dont maximize the screen during the emulation especially in virtualbox and on linux. Somehow confuses the emulator.
9. There is no visible performance difference between running the game on a WM and natively on my Win10, so from now on I will using WM to do the modded games. I did a master VM on Win 8.1 with all the patches until beta installed and clone it then patch it the with the mode of my choice. Works like a charm !
