    I gave up even the idea of purchasing D3-II until someone actually gets it running. But haven't heard anything here or over at MacRumors forum.

    Pretty interesting and sad. And quite disappointing that Parallels support can't be bothered to weigh in on this issue. Though, thanks @jankais3r for the insight.

    The only error message I got said that the program (after installing it through the Windows version of Battlenet) is that the program can't initialize the video.

    I'm experiencing the same challenges as everyone here, just want to play D2R.
    Had no trouble playing Age of Empires 2 through Steam, with Windows 11 Insider Preview. But D2R and Chivalry 2 are the only two games I downloaded all this stuff for. Parallels support pretty quiet in here I see.

    Anyone tried D2R with Parallel 18?

    That's what I get also. Keep trying whenever there is a Parallels or Windows 11 update but nothing yet. :(

    Greetings Parallels support, please provide an update or a status quo assesment of the issue. I see some pretty darned interesting sleuthing over the last year+ by folks. But to no avail. I recently switched over from Fusion to Parallels because I was looking forward to wan imagined (and probably real) higher level of support and community.

    My use-cases for a virtual machine these days:
    1: support for misc "older" or rebuilt games such as Diablo 2 Resurrected.
    2: accessing Citrix / SecureID for work thru a Windows environment when my company's IT team hasn't optimized for MacOS / etc.

    I know many folks will applaud whenever this D2R becomes playable on apple silicon. :D

    Well - multiple Parallels, Windows 11 (and Battlenet just to include it also) updates have come and been installed and still get the same freaking error message. Perhaps if Parallels ever gets true support for DirectX 12, then we will have a shot at D2R working.
