By the way, I'm using version 3.2.4 r62467 of Virtualbox, and Ubuntu 10.04 (the latest version?).

They've made it even simpler.

Just make sure you've mount the Guest Additions via Devices. Then you'll see a "Guest Additions" CD icon on your desktop.

Just right-click, and select the run with Autorun Prompt. And a new window will pops up, and installing the necessary files.

You'll have to restart your virtual computer to take effect.

or, via terminal way

Code:
cd /media/[drive]
Code:
sudo sh [filename].run
or was it
Code:
sudo ./[filename].run
:x

restart ubuntu by
Code:
sudo reboot

*Note* Some functions might now available be available in Ubuntu VB-mode, compared to actual working/independent machine.

Also, remember to blacklist this entry, to fix the slow/flickering screen refreshes.

Open up your terminal
Code:
sudo gedit /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist-framebuffer.conf
Enter the following line to the end of the file
Code:
blacklist vga16fb
Save, and restart Ubuntu.

For some reason, it doesn't work for me. It always ends up 'not responding.'

What do you mean by not responding, the virtual box or the guest OS?
Care to elaborate more?

If possible, please include your computer specifications as well.

What's your allocated Video RAM? Also note, the Direct3D in VirtualBox is experimental, so *it might or might not* works with some computers.

Anyway, does your TO launcher displays "NVIDIA FX 5200" listed as driver version?

in the guest system, do a Start -> Run -> dxdiag
click on DirectX Files Tab, if you see yellow exclamation marks mean the guest D3D should be working.
The Test Direct3D at the Display tab shouldn't be grey out as well.

btw this is for xp

Actually for the newer Guest Additions 3.24 it works without safe mode, but iz still better to do it in safe mode.

1.07 RAM

This is what the launcher looks like:
This is what happens to Trickster when I press start:

The direct3D might not compatible with your system.
Also, did you checked bot "Enable 3D acceleration" and "Enable 2D acceleration" enabled?

Try uninstall Guest Additions, restart and reinstall [better to reinstall in safe mode]

Probably your current drivers/graphics chipset is not supported. As mentioned the Direct3D acceleration in VirtualBox is in experimental stage [unstable], and it requires your host graphics chipset/drivers to get it work as well.
