QEMU for Windows 2000 with 3D acceleration

Since I’m struggling with newer versions of virtualbox, I’ll try a different approach.

Does anyone know how to setup a QEMU virtual machine running windows 2000 and get 3D acceleration working? So far I tried virt manager but with no success in the video department. I can only get 640x480 resolution with 16 colors. Tried QXL, virtio and vga in the video settings with no apparent difference.

The objective is to get Windows 2000 in a state where it can play 3D games or run software requiring 3D acceleration. There are a few videos online with this working but without a guide, or at least a human readable guide.

PCEM is likely a better option GitHub - sarah-walker-pcem/pcem: PCem
