So for a while I had a Windows Server VM that had no problem running Skyrim and a couple of other games without issue. But for some reason it wouldn’t run Assassin’s Creed Origins. The splash screen would start up, then the game would just die w/o error.
I couldn’t figure it out at the time, but I’ve done some reasearch on the DRM in this game and it appears that it uses something called "VMProtect’ (in addition to Denuvo) that actually runs the game in a VM. Normally you can’t run a VM inside a VM, so I’m thinking this might explain why AC Origins wouldn’t run.
Do you think setting up a nested hypervisor would fix this? If it did, would performance be abysmal?
I’m rebuilding my Linux box, so I can’t play with it right now, but I’m planning to migrate from Proxmox to KVM+virt-manager. Is a nested hypervisor possible with virt-manager?
