    Final Fantasy XI is the only reason I am still using Boot Camp. Would love to see this running under Parallels.

    I'm trying to get Ragnarok Online up and running on parallels. It's the only reason I'm bothering with Windows on my Macbook Pro.

    LOTRO- Lord of the Rings ONLINE.

    Jeez-- All I get is a white screen and it's the ONLY reason I'd want to use a "windoze" virtualization in the first place.

    DirectX support in 3.0? Hardly... Frankly I can't even get windows media player to play a VIDEO at all in Vista...

    I haven't even tried playing a DVD ... The Video Driver that comes with Parallels is just junk... there is no such thing as 3D.. It's hilarious they even tried to sell it that way.:)

    Starfleet Command

    I've tried the old classic Starfleet Command II, specifically I grabbed the demo and ran it.

    It does run, but only just. The screen is jerky, the mouse movement is very jerky, and there is now sound.

    Since it is an older game, maybe only moderate work is needed to make it viable?

    Just want to add my voice to the chorus asking for Civ4. Also, I would like to see Poker Academy Pro 2 working, it hangs at the splash screen.

    I have installed and Run the new harry Potter Game, and it runs fine (weell, that is to say, just as badly as it runs on the PC, which is pretty bad) but the text within the game is unreadable. It appears as a white blob of the outline of the text, so it is tantalizingly close to being decipherable.

    I don't know if this is a weird issue with my display (a flat panel), a font install issue with the 'guest' Windows, or simply an incompatibility in the DirectX support Parallels has.

    Does anyone have any suggestions or can at least tell me what the issue is so I can stop trying to fix it if its Parallels?

    Gameplay for The Settlers II 10th Anniversary isn't working, although the game does run to the menus, so I assume that gameplay itself requires DX9. (I'm told that the original Settlers II works fine, but I have not been able to verify it myself)

    C&C:The First Decade works for some games and not for others, obviously (I want to see if I can have Mac Generals and PC Generals in one shared folder structure - ie. one common set of data files). I'm getting graphical problems with the early games, but that has nothing to do with Parallels itself.

    I'm interested in whether it is possible to have one set of files for a few cross-platform games (eg. Civ4, Warcraft III, etc.) in a shared folder structure - good for games where cross-platform multiplayer gaming is not implemented...

    Game: Guild Wars

    Has anyone gotten Guild Wars to run and if so what options. Otherwise, I request that Guildwars get added to the list of games that are currently broken :)

    American Conquest

    I've been trying, without success, to get American Conquest - Divided Nation by cdv running under Parallels. The game runs and I get sound, but only a black screen. Any suggestions, anyone?

    All Codemasters games

    This game is from

    1. I installed Archlord on a brand new copy of Windows XP Pro SP2 (no windows update)
    2. Enabled DirectX Support from the VM Options.
    3. Left the Video Memory to 16MB and the main Memory to 512
    4. Started Windows XP up and launched Archlord
    5. Game booted up as normal
    6. Got to the loading screen after loading Parallel crashes so does the MacOS
    7. I force rebooted my machine, and tried again, this time, I made sure all the graphics are OFF.
    8. Game ran, got to the loading screen everything crashed again...but.. then it got to the next screen which was the loggin screen for archlord.
    9. However, the login screen was SLOW the frame rate was very very slow even with all the graphics lowed to NOTHING.
    10. I was able to log into the game, with the same problem it ran for about 10mins with horrible frame rate and lowered graphics...then it crashes Parallel followed by the MacOS. Then I shut down my mac, and cried myself to sleep....

    Help me?!

    This is what i'm running:

    MacBook Pro Laptop
    Intel Core Duo 2
    4GIB memory
    160 GIB Hard Drive
    17" Monitor HD
    256 Geforce nVidia

    Unreal Gold

    Unreal Gold (which is DX7) looks great and runs smoothly at 1650x1050, but surprisingly runs TOO fast at times! You'll be walking (or running) along and all of a sudden start moving twice as fast as you should be for periods of time. Sound remains OK though. Anyone else seen this?
