Respectfully...really...WHY do you want to do this?  I can see doing it on 
a lark but you are _never_ going to get the same performance under an 
emulator as you will under the native platform, and modern games are very 
resource intensive (bf1942 being the most intensive one so far that was 
worth a damn).

But spending time trying to get it right...madness!
