    Hey all. First post.

    I signed up for and downloaded the GameTap software but it won't run in XP in Parallels due to a video card issue. Can anyone advise a way around this? Perhaps I haven't downloaded something.

    Thanks!

    Parallels doesn't do hardware 3D yet, so you'll want BootCamp for gaming stuff, and Parallels for pretty much everything else =)

    Sorry to resurrect an old thread, but with the 3.0 release, has anyone been able to get Gametap to work?

    Nope, not me. I think it’s a DirectDraw issue… dxdiag’s Direct3D test works, but not DirectDraw.

    You have not stated what computer you have with it's memory and processor specs...

    What’s that have to do with whether Parallels can run it at all?
